Hi everyone, I been gone for a while but I'm back now. I was ill and I had my gall-bladder removed and I am feeling good now. I am going to be posting some new stuff soon. I hope you all have Happy Holidays! Don't eat too much. ;)
While in the hospital a Nursing Assistant named Jesula was so kind to me that I spoke to her supervisor and told her what a great young woman she is. Before I left the hospital I got her address so I could make a special card for her. And here it is.
Sorry it took so long to post anything but I was in the hospital for four days and it has taken me a while to get back into the swing of things. I hope all of you have been great. This card I made for the friend who's house we stayed at when we went to Ohio. The scalloped circle is on a foam square to make it stand out. The black on the paper is flocked. Just so happened that I had a brad that looked just like one of the flowers on the paper.
My husband Bruce and I left last Thursday for his 40th Class Reunion. Wow that's a long time. Well the flight over was awful, we had air turbulance so many times that I thought I would lose it. The pilot would go up and down and up and down well you get the point right? I decided to bring my DVD player and a couple of movies well I decided that my choice of movies was not very good, why you ask? Because I took BLACK HAWK DOWN, yes a war movie where a couple of Black Hawk helicopters went down. Now you get it??? Not a good choice!! Anyways the reunion was great and it was wild having women come up to me and tell me what a crush they had on my husband way back when. I don't blame them I too think his is cute although he now has no hair! He was a football player in high school and also played semi pro ball later on. Well it rained almost the entire time we were there, it stunk since I live in Miami Florida where it had been raining every day. We stayed at a friends house were we went out to her front yard and you could deer grazing. That was really cool. We saw them almost everytime we left the house. While there we visted family and had dinner with them. It was alot of fun seeing them since it had three years since we last saw them. We were there for six days andc of course I found a Michael's store so guess what I did? I went shoooopping!!!! I had heard on some blogs about Hobby Lobby but never had been to one nor did I know where they were. Well guess what? I founnnnnnnd one down the road from where I was. So guess what I did. Give up? Yes I went shooooooooping!!!!! Wow what a cool store. Well I won't bore you anymore and now you can look at a few pics. Have a wonderful day!!
As you can see this was one of the woman who had a crush on my husband.

I just wanted to let you know that Cricut is celebrating Cartridge #100 Winter Woodland. Wow I can't believe there are 100 cartridges, and I only have 12. I guess I need to catch up. I guess in my dreams for now. Anyway check out the site for a chance to win a cartridge. Good luck!! http://www.cricut.com/shopping/ProductDetails.aspx?id=361&s=1&sc=2
This card is a little more sophisticated then the other ones I've done. I really like how this one turned out. The basckground paper is Coordination's. I embossed it with a Snowflake Sizzix folder and then I sanded the embossed area. The reindeer paper is DCWV glitter cardstock. This is a A2 size card.
I just wanted to let you all know that on Sept. 24th starting at 12:00 AM on HSN they are going to have the world launch of The Gypsy. I'm sure it's going to be great to see them demo it. Also you should check out the site Cutting Above at http://cuttingabove.blogspot.com/ it's a really nice blog and you can enter for a chance to win a Gypsy. Good luck to all of you.
I really like this card. I got this idea from Happy Happy Joy Joy from Christmas With The Cricut website. She said on the video that she got this card from someone else also. I like it because it can stand on it's own and be displayed. I used different cardstock but the same basic design.
I made this card for my daughter Melanie to thank her for all she does for me. The top left scalloped circle is a cut out that says Thinking of You. The lower left scallop circle says You Are Loved. It's simple but cute.
This is a Thank You card that I made for a Teacher and a Monk from Thailand. They were at the Thai Temple where my grand-kids went for summer camp. It was great because they got to learn about the Thai culture. They loved it there. The flower that you see by itself is really on a vellum envelope but it does not show in the picture. Sorry.
Here are some pictures of my grand-kids Angelique, Jordan and Aiden. Also the monk and the teachers.
Angelique is one on the left.
This is Jordan, the monk Somphong and Angelique
This the Somphong and Aiden my other grand-son.
These are the teachers fixing Angelique's hair for a holiday they performed in.
My grand-son is on the right. They were rehearsing for their performance.
