Card Creations and More

Here is another week at Card Creations and More with Christina. This week's challenge was to use pattern ribbon. It surely did not turn out as good as I envisioned, but it is cute and all. I think it would make a great card for a teacher. After all teacher appreciation week is the first week in May. Teacher appreciation day is May 2nd this year. I thought the girl playing with the ball is a perfect reflection of a child. Always so playful.

Hope you enjoy and play along too.

Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you Donna for sending me this award.  It was really kind of her to think of me.

Here are the rules for this award:
1.  Thank the person who sent it to you
2.  Tell 7 things about yourself
3.  Send this to 15 bloggers

Things about me:
1. I adore my three kids,  mom is my best job ever and the hardest too.
2.  I went to high school  with my  husband.  We did not date, but I did give him a hard time. A girl in our math class used to joke that we bickered like a married couple.  That year I wrote in his yearbook that I felt sorry for who ever we actually married if we bickered like a married couple and we were not even an item. 
3. I am great a memorizing phone numbers.  My husband calls me his walking Rolodex.
4.  I am terrible remembering names.   So sad to have someone walk up to you in the store and they know you and you have no clue who they are.  Some times I can remember where I know them from, but no name of course.
5. I participated in a triathlon last fall.  I wasn't great, but I did do all three events (swimmng, biking, and mainly walking, though I did try to run part of it.)
6.  I am only one year away from finishing my bachelors degree.  I have been one year away for 14 years.  I just realized that being mom is enough work, I don' t want to mix school into the formula.  Plus, I was very morning sick the last year I was at college.  Whenever I walk into the buildings on campus, those same memories flood my mind and I feel sick all over again. 
7.  I love paper crafting.  Sometimes I just wish there was not laundry or other priorities and I could just play all day.    Some days that happens, but most days it doesn't.

Again thank you Donna for this award.  Please check out her wonderful blog.

CCC #67

Today is my design team day at Cricut Cardz Challenge. However, I forgot to send my card off to be added, so here it is even though I had it done last week. The post was not ready to be uploaded to when I finished it and with spring break and all I forgot.   I guess I will just add it to the Mr. Linky, since it is late.

On a good note, I was so excite that I got all my March and April design team projects done for both design teams that I am on. Now just some free time to just play is all I need.

I hope you take a look at what the other DT did. Wow, I just looked and I am very impressed they did a fabulous job.
Our challenge was to make a spring card with only the colors white, pink and green. Love this challenge, because spring and those colors are some of my favorites. I hope you join us here.

The never ending card

Cousin Kylie had her appendix out a couple of days ago, so what better idea for my kids to give their teenage cousin than a card that opens up to a new page over and over. Love this card style.  Her is the front of the card.
The first opening page.
Second opening page.
This last page is an area for my kids to leave a comment for her to read. Then if opens up to the front to open again and again.  My kids have already had hours of entertainment with this card.  Hope she enjoys the mail.

Thank you Ellen at Card Monkey for the idea.

Also here is a video link on how to make your own.from Simply Sarah.

CCC # 65

This week on Cricut Cardz Challenge, we had to make a tall card 9 x 4. I used Stretch your imaginations to cut the flowers. Can I say I love flowers.

Thank you for visiting. I have been so busy recently, I have not had time to post anything. I appreciate all who leave sweet comments. They really do make my day.

Card Creations and More

This week we had a challenge to make a tri-fold card for Card Creations and More. Hope you join us for this challenge.

Okay, so this picture is not really good for an example of a tri-fold card. You see my design team submission was due Thursday and as I was walking out to go to a baby shower, I said to my husband. "Quick take a picture and send it to Card Creations and more for me. " What I forgot to mention was that it needed to show more than one ange to see the whole card. So no full view, maybe next time.

Any way as you may of guessed, after he took the picture I took the card to the baby shower and so this front view is the only style I have. Oh well. It almost gave me an excuse to make another card.

Thank you Christina for being so patient with me.
