What have I been doing....

Well, it's all about the Cricut and making cards! I so don't want to send it back and be without it....but I still have to fiddle with it to come on! But once it comes on, I am busy!

Friday, I went to my dear friend Shelly's house, such a beautiful, clean house, and we made cards! She just got hers not too long ago, because she had to keep listening (and reading my blog) about how much fun I was having! Now she is making the cutiest cards! She use to scrap all the time, and now I have her thinking about the soldiers and OWH and she want to make cards for them (plus she has a nephew in the Marines!), so I turn on another one to help our soldiers.

Some of you remember (I don't) what a sacrific everyone made when we were at war. No sugar, tires, gas. Women took over factory job. Mom said her friends could knit sock in the movie theater in the dark, and they would send the socks off to loved ones. We don't have that feeling now, but I can make cards. I know it's the right thing for me to do, because God is making me feel so good doing it!

So now I will show you all the cards I put together! They are ready to be finished! I feel like I accomplished so much! I'm going to do this from now on, have cards ready to complete.

Now, I did just cut and folded a bunch too!

And you know my friend Shelly. Well, I'm always talking about my dad (Happy 93rd Birthday, Daddy--I miss you!) and she's always talking about her mother, and all the work that she does for the Lord. And she said she was going to make her some note cards. Well, I don't think I've ever met her, but I feel like I know her, so I got busy last night and made her some note cards. I can't take the credit for the design of the luggage tag one, but just through the other one together.

And look what I used to make the envelopes (they came out a weird size), and I made the box too, with Martha Stewart's scoring pad! Mary, at Cardz TV showed it on her show, and I just had to have one. I have a Scor-Pal, but don't waste the $40 on that one, go to Michael's and get Martha's for $19.99 (and use a coupon--this week 50% off--you won't be sorry. Stores a triangle that let's you score for envelopes and has sizes of boxes to make! IT"S WONDERFUL!!!

Well, that's what I've been up to--what have you been doing?

  1. You've been busy! They look great, I picked up the MS score pal a few days ago... but I haven't tried it yet!
