Imagine: Hopscotch Card

Hello and welcome back. Today I have a card to show you that I made a while back and never blogged it. (actually I have ALOT I haven't showed anyone.. who knew?)  Anyways.. a few crafty friends have been inquiring about the Imagine and I'm always the first to say.... I LOVE MINE!!!  I still do think my favorite feature that it has and the other Cricut machines don't.. the PRINTING feature. I love the papers you can print as well as adding RGB codes. I know as long as I have white paper.. I'll never run out of the same pattern paper!! 
I made this card to send to my cousin, who is on a ship somewhere, to send his lil man so he knew his daddy was thinking of him. This is a simple card, but.. what lil 3 year old wouldn't just love it!! 
Cricut Imagine Cart: Hopscotch ( cloud back ground paper) 
Cricut: B is For Boy ( airplane)
Peachy Keen Stamps: Everyday Character Assortment
Sentiment: 40:31 Creations
Ctmh: Circle Around Stamp ( stitching) 

How easy is that!!!  You don't have to print the whole page the same either!! You can select a shape from the preloaded designs on the Imagine and fill the color you want.. then just size it to what you need!!!  Easy peasy!! I hope you will drag out your Imagine and play around as well. 
Thanks for stopping by.. come again soon.. ( tomorrow is our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop) 

Happy Crafting!!!

Our 6th Wedding Anniversary

Hello ya'll and thanks for visiting. Today is a special day for my hubby and I as we celebrate 6 wonderful years as husband and wife. We have made it through more trials and tribulations than most married couples endure their whole marriage, but.. we have been strong enough to make it through. Our kids were little and so excited about us being together. Here are some pictures of our AWESOME Wedding Day!! (The card I made for hubby at the end)
My BFF, Roger's daughter Tasha, and my lil Candace:
Roger's best man, His sons Roger Dale (oldest) and Tyler, who was Colton's age .
Here are our kids TODAY!!  Candace, Roger Dale, Tyler, and Colton. (Colton wasn't even thought about 6 years ago!!) 
And my hubby and I... 
Here's to 6 WONDERFUL years with my PRINCE and to many more!! 

Those who know my hubby knows how much he loves his cars!! He is currently restoring a '29 Model A and when I saw this stamp from Sarah Pink Cricut I KNEW I had to have it. My hubby loved his card. 

Thank you all for visiting and for the wonderful messages you left on my face book. 

Happy Crafting!!

Thankful Thursday DT : PIRATES

 Hello !! Welcome back to another Thankful Thursday hosted by Crazy About Cricut. This weeks project was all about PIRATES!!! So, what better project for my lil man and I. ( as if my teenage daughter has any interest anyways.. hehe )  Anyways, my lil man and I had a BLAST with this. He has a new LOVE for Helmar "bloo". We really made big messes, but even BIGGER memories. I got the idea HERE  but tweeked it to fit us. 
Here ya go... This will be VERY picture heavy!! I just loved them all!!! 
We printed the templates off the site above and gathered a few other materials : a box, colored cardstock, Helmar glues, scissors, and score pal. 
My lil guy colored the "hardware" from the printables. 
Colton had a BLAST with Helmar Acid Free Glue. He glued the yellow and spread while I added the black to the outside and red (velvet) on the inside.
I used 2 different sized circle puches and made "gold coins". I used Helmar Acid Free glue to adhere inside the chest.
The "KEEP OUT", key, lock, and handles are all from the printable.
What PIRATE Chest is complete without a PIRATE??
And.. the matey's...
Aren't they soo CUTE!!!

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed our PIRATE project. We had a blast with this one. Be sure to visit Crazy About Cricut and find out what kind of TREASURES you can win!!
Happy Crafting Mateys...

Pirate Hugs,
