I made this teapot card. for the BBTB2 challenge. This week's challenge was to use a monogram from any cart. I cut the teapot from Kate's ABC's. I punched some vellum flowers. The scalloped circle is from the Essentials cart that is preloaded on the E2. The T is from the cart, Alaphabet, which is also preloaded on The E2. It's a simple card, but I did enjoy making it.

Check out getting-scrappy-challenge where i got the sketch from. Leah is a co-designer for StuckOnSketches. If you get a chance check out her blog. This is a very simple sketch with lots of possiblities to make it your own. I used a MS doily punch for the border. The title is from the Shadow font from the BABY STEPS cart. I just got this cart Saturday and I really like some of the cuts on there. Cant wait to actually play with it. I made some vellum flowers for emmbellies and also some bling that I had gotten at M's.

Bath Time

I made this page using the Kate's ABC cart and the cricut reloaded cart on the E2 Alphabet. I did all the cuts in the CCR The duck is on page 64.
Layer 1. I used the hide contour to hide the other part of the cut, because I only wanted the duck. The big duck was cut @ 2". I added a wiggly eye.
The smaller ducks are cut at 1". I chalked the beaks orange on the little ones. The Bath Time is the preloaded Alaphbet cart. I welded this together. The Song is the Rubber Ducky song that i copied off a web site.
Thanks for taking a look.

Up Date

Up Date on Larry He finished his Chemo around 6 tonight and he got to come home. He is in his pj's and sittinbg in his easy char watching HIS tv. He's all good. Started the antibiotic so maybe we can ward off the mouth sores if they are going to come back. He has to go for the shot, to help the white cells,because the chemo is BADDDDDDDDDD on white cells. Then blood work the next 2 mondays, then will do another roun d of Chemo on the 9th of March. After the round then they will run pet scans and other tests to see where we are.

So I hope to get started on my new baby album that i have to do. Its a girl!!!


I want to aplogize on my spelling on my last blog posts. I went back this morning and looked at all my comments. OMG you would have thought that my fingers were drunk. They weren't and neither was I. When the weather gets cold and dry, my fingers crack very badly, because of dishwater and other things. My index and thumb have bandages on them, so I'm typing with three fingers. I have even had to go back on this post and fix the mispelled words.

Thanks for all the comments on my blog I really appreciate them. I'm writing this post from my DH'S hospital room. He is getting his second round of chemo. He will get to go home sometime today. Please keep him in your prayers that he does not have the smae reactions that he had with the first round. He had all the reations except the nausuating. Every thing else. He is on Cisplatin (Platinol). right now he is sleeping because I'm sitting here in the room with him.. I hope to get some crafting done this weekend. So have a good Thursday and Happy Crafting Ladies.

Need Title

here is a LO that I did with pictures of my great-neice and a flower Teqnique
that I saw in a magazine. I'm having problems trying to figure out a Title for the LO. As you can see the scheme of the LO has nothing to do with the Pictures,which is how I doi my LO's. i see a picture or pictures and I go from ther, My albums don't have a theme. I just take the pictures and make the page, unless I see someones page that i want to do.

Here is a close up of the flowers

Valentine card with tag

Good afternoon everyone. Hope you had a great Saturday and was able to get some crafting in. I decided that I wanted to make a tag to enter into the Bittenbythebug2 challenge where this week your were to use the sweetheart cart for the tag. I'm not sure if this will qualify, but I'm going to enter it any way just to show it and hope it inspires some one to try it. I used the Heart Balloon on page 32 in the hand book. I cut off the bottom of the ballon and also made it not so wide, in the ccr. I used the Ribbons & Rossette cart for all the tiny hearts. I used the hearts for the string on the tag. The heart shaped paper in the middle of the heart is from the Paper Stack All Seasons II from Paper Studio.

The card that I made is a gate fold card. The pattern paper is from the French Country Stack from DCWV I really love this paper stack. It has some beautiful paper. The heart is from the Sweetheart cart cut @ 2" 1.5" and 1". I used the tiny hearts that I used on my tag to make a heart tail for the front. I'm going to post this over on RAQ's card forum.

I used a stamp that I had gotten from the $ bin at M's. Here is the inside of the card.


I had done this LO in Dec. I didn't add any pictures because I wasn't sure what I wnated on the mats. I got these pictures from my niece and they fit with just a little cropping right on the mats.

The iv fluids and the meds that they are giving Larry has helped the sores on his mouth & tongue. Larry did alot of sleeping on and off today. Late this afternoon tho he spiked a fever of 102 so they came and drew blood for some lab work and some cultures. It will be 24 hours before we know the results. So I'm thinking I don't think he wikll be coming home tomrorrow. He only ate some scrambled eggs this morning and some jello about 6 tonight.Thats all

Here is a pic of our oldest DD and Larry.


I didn't get to do any crafting today so I don't have anything to post. I have hearts cut out and am hoping to make a mobile that I saw on Capdia Designs web site. she had made a mobile a coupld of years ago and I really liked it, the hearts are cut out, i just have to put it together.

For those of you that know about my DH and for those that dont, My DH was diagnosed with Lung cancer on Dec 22, also my lesion on brain. I want to up date you guys to let you know that the Dr admitted Larry into the hospital today for dehydration. He also has some very bad sores on his toungue and mouth and throat. This is caused from the Chemo that he had a a week ago. Most ppl get sick from the Chemo, but not Larry, he gets the other side affects. I swear he isn't normal. lol Dr said that he will be in at least a 2-3 days. He is getting iv fluids, antibiotics and other things. He is also getting pain meds,because his toungue and mouth was really hurting. He has only been eating scrabbled eggs because that wasn't hurting his mouth. This morning tho he couldn't even eat them because of the pain. So Dr figured it was time to stop trying to do this at home.

I do want to show you a picture of my DH with the 2 youngest grandsons. The littlest one Dalton says he has hair like hit PaPa.
