Wednesday's Weekly Post

Good Morning!  How was your week?  My week has been very busy.  I worked all week and my Grandson had a diaper shower this past Sunday.  One more week of work at the Floral School and I'll be back to normal! WHEW!!!!  On another note, Bobby is progressing well.  Thanks again for all the prayers and well wishes!

On to today's card.  Yes, I know just one today, hoping to get more time in my craft room before next week's post!  Another Valentine for you guys today!

How about this adorable monkey, he was cut from Create A Critter 2 at 3.75.  The sentiment is from K Andrew's.  Of course I had to add buttons, right, what cards are complete without buttons or bling.  It has to have that little extra something or at least mine do!  Tee Hee  My buttons are from Hobby Lobby, I love that place.  All of paper is from my scrap box.  And my pretty red ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I'm part of their monthly ribbon club.  I love all the pretty ribbon I get each month and for such a Reasonable price!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next week!

Weekly Wednesday Post

Good Morning!  How was your weekI'm so glad you were able to stop by todayI want to say thank you for all the get well prayers and wishes for my husband, Bobby.  He is doing much better.  He gets stronger each day and is able to move around a little better each day.  He'll be going for his follow up later today.  

I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  I'm getting a head start on my Valentines this year.  I created this sweet card for my Great Grandson, Cayden, he is just four months old but I'm sure his parents will enjoy it. 

   The heart and train were cut from Create A Critter Cricut cartridge.  The Heart was cut at 1 1/2 and the train was cut at 2 3/4.  My card stock is from Walmart and the Polka Dot background paper is from Hobby Lobby.  I ran the little strip of red paper through my cuttlebug with the Hearts embossing folder.  The sentiment is from K Andrew's. 

My next two cards are Cricutless.  I stamped and colored the images using my Spectrum Markers. 

Isn't this fishing bear the cutest!!!!  The stamp I used is Mulberry Wood Gone Fishing.  I am still getting into the coloring thing.  Still trying to learn how to shade properly.  I love these Spectrum Markers.  All of my card stock is from my scrap box.  I'm sure everyone has one of those.  LOL  All of my elements, bling, buttons, ribbon are from Hobby Lobby. 

  I absolutely fell in love with this image when I saw on it on another blog.  Sorry I can't remember which blog, I look at so many of them.  The stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms and it's a Thomas Kinkade "It Doesn't Get Much Better".  As I stated above I used Spectrum Markers to color the image.  This card is a 5X7 card.  

I hope you enjoyed my cards today.  I have some exciting news....I am participating in my first blog hop on Friday, January 11th.  It's my daughter's birthday and she is hosting a blog hop to celebrate.  See you on Friday!!!!!!

Welcome back to my blog for my Wednesday Weekly Post!!!!  
 Let's get the personal stuff out of the way first, Bobby is home from the hospital and is doing wellJole' (our fur baby)  is so happy to have him home but still doesn't understand why can't she jump up in his chair with him.  It's been a struggle to keep her down.  LOL  But like me, she is happy to have him home.  
I have three cards to share with you today, one made with the Cricut and two without.

My images for this card were cut from Create A Critter. 

 I used Recollections paper on these cards with some bling and ribbon/twine from my stash.

 I hope you enjoyed my cards today and I'll see you next week for another share!!!!  Have a great week my friends!
