Happy Monday!!! Brrrr

It's cold in the City!!!!
Thank you for taking time out to stop by for a quick peek.

I'm so thankful for being blessed as a survivor...wanted to give two additional gifts in celebration of my B-day.

Today, I'm sharing with you a couple gifts for co-workers. Ms. Antoinette encouraged me tremendously -

as soon as I was diagnosed. She provided me with her very own pearls of wisdom.

Ms. Susan just shared her testimony with a couple of us last week..while smiling and being grateful. She'll be surprised today when I tell her how she blessed me. 

Stay Warm!!

Silhouette Cameo... Fun Projects!

Good morning and thank you for stopping by my craft space.

Lately, I've been having a great time viewing Pinterest and other blogs for inspiration!!

Today, I'm sharing a variety of projects I've created over the past five days or so. These are for couple for my bonus-grands, upcoming shower party favors for my niece, gifts for co-workers and a couple of cards. All created by the Silhouette Cameo. I'm so enjoying this new machine will have more to share in the next couple days.

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great day!

Wanted to create another gift or two today.  This vinyl printed, acrylic plaque will honor Ms. Minnie, the precious Mom of my beautiful bonus daughters and their family.

A Little Bit of Heaven... for my Sis...

One of my two sisters is so into silver! When I spotted these serving plates - I decided to pick one up to place this saying she asked for at least six months ago. I tried doing it on my Cricut and wasn't very successful (didn't know what I was doing).  A nice person in FB group shared the file today, so I felt I would try again.  A few years ago, my sister Kathy lost one of her very best friends who was actually just like her sister - her family is our family.  Her sister/friend, Connie says, whenever you see a butterfly, think of me. And whenever Connie called you on the phone, she'd say, 'It's me, Connie'.  Loooove her!!  So, this gift symbolizes all of this. 

Thanks for browsing.

In This House!!

I have created a note using a vinyl phrase from Silhouette America _ Online Store. I'm hoping my niece will appreciate how I manipulated the original file to fit the names of her beautiful family. 

The background paper is from the the Paper Studio, Faith paper pack. It will be covered using Grafix Clear Craft Plastic.

Thank you for stopping by... Have a great day!

Card, Envelope & Plaque

Happy New Year!!
Here's to all things great ~ wishing you success, along with an abundance of blessings for 2014!
I am really enjoying the ease of use of the Silhouette Cameo for card making, envelopes, cutting names and such.  I've decorated a quick plaque, with a card and matching envelope using card stock and patterned paper by Darice (from JoAnn's).  I really like the heavy weight of this paper... 80# - cuts extremely well in the machine.

Have an amazing New Year!
