The cards and gifts were all created using the Silhouette Cameo; I'm still learning how to use it and plan to use it often... I really like this die cutting machine!
Have a wonderful and blessed new year.

My crafty girlfriend JoAnn is getting married!! She's found the perfect wedding invites and plans to order them late this year. JoAnn cannot stop talking about this style.. So, since she loves this invitation style so much - I've taken the style and created a couple keepsakes.

I'm keeping cool and posting a plaque for a very nice manager at our facility. One of her co-workers requsted this & I'm hoping they both approve.
I used a little Memento blue ink for coloring; Wire Dress Form stamp by Stampabilities; letters are Glitter Gemstone Italic Alpha Stickers and a bit of extra bling.
Have an awesome evening!

School is out and crafting is on!!
I'm sharing a project I've created for one my online friends - an extremely inspirational and strong young lady who is a 2x Survivor and an advocate for both breast and ovarian cancer. She's my virtual-friend - I follow her and watch her working on hard to promote awareness and to help others.
Candy is unstoppable! I was happy to come with an idea to thank her for all of the work she does.
A few of the items used:
- Clear Scraps Acrylic Scallop
- Glitter Gemstone Italic Alphabet Stickers
- Me & My Big Ideas Sheet Cardstock Pad 8 x 8 Breast Cancer Research
- Say It With Crystals - Pink
- Bazzill Basics Dotted Swiss
Have a Fantastic-Crafty Week!!

I'm doing a quick 'drop-in' to post photos from a few creations I've completed recently. Still plugging away at my classes and so happy to report I'm at the very end of Semester #4... YaHoooo! lol.
I didn't want these photos to get lost, so I have decided to post them for viewing.
I cannot wait to get back to full-time crafting and card making.

Hoping my post reaches everyone in the very best of health, along with the very highest of spirits!
I have been M.I.A... and haven't crafted in a minute.
After the loss of yet another of my best friends, I could barely concentrate on crafting (or anything else for that matter). So, I decided I needed to change my focus. I wanted to do something as far as self-improvement... to better equip myself with the tools I needed to improve my mind. I enrolled in school and was amazed when I successfully completed an Undergraduate Certificate in Business Management. This was an opportunity to challenge myself in more ways than one. I would complain to family and friends about having 'chemo-brain' [it's real]; Many let me know it's just age, lol. Well, the combination of both had me nearly unable to remember some names, thoughts and information. So, the challenge went forth and after completing the above certificate with honors, I have enrolled into a degree program. I'll use my decades worth of life experiences to draw upon ... it has provided me with a strong foundation for potential academic success.
So, with crafting on hold... becoming a student helps me to maintain my focus during my challenges; It has caused me to truly appreciate every student and especially those who work full-time and attend school. This goal of mine is possible with the support of my husband, along with family and friends.
I took time last weekend - to make a couple of cards. As soon as I graduate from this current degree program, I'll get back on the saddle of learning to craft and following all of these amazing blogs I normally follow.
Thank you for stopping by!! Continued Success to You!
