Graduation card

Good Wednesday to you all

I have been pretty busy lately, I want to scrap but just can't get in the mood.

I did need a card for my Son who is graduating July 1 st......

For this I used

Papers/ red & black card stock and DCWV paper stack

Cricut carts plantin school book for 2010& locker talk for the cap

I used chip board for the cap and covered it with paper....

A very simple card!

For the inside I copied the front paper minus the 2010 & cap and added my own saying.

Well thats it for now I want to get out and get my grass cut before it gets to hot and chance of storms later today....

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day

Wanda :-D


Things I am Thankful for

1. Being able to do yard work ( I LOVE IT )

Fathers Day card

Happy Saturday everyone
It is gonna be a hot one here.... ( not complaining )
Thought I would share a few cards I made
First one is my Husbands Fathers day card I made him
This shirt card and he is so not a shirt and tie kinda guy he works in a steel mill dirt and grime.
I used small circle spell binders and stamped my guy on it with staming up stamps.
I hand pieced everything...used ribbon for the tie and hankie
sm brads / buttons and heart sticker.
the saying in side I came up with ...what a poet I am
the second one is Our Anniversary card
Today is our Anniversary 34 years.
I used Cricut cart Mickey and Friends for
Mickey & Minnie cut @ 6 ins and pop dotted
Heart was cut @ 6 3/4 ins punched hole in top corner and add ribbon and a heart brad.
our initials cut with Mickey font @ 1in
That's it for the crafting.... I have been pretty busy , We took the girls to the zoo
they had a blast I took lots of pics so I will be scrapping them along with the Idle wild ones...
We had a birthday party to go to yesterday and still layed up with this stupid foot.
I had a second shot in my heel Thursday and they did some kind of ultra sound to break up all the inflammation , Doctors say there is still a lot in there and when I have the shot and they get done poking and probing on it is really I thought I would rest it a while....
Nothing big planned for our day today maybe a movie and dinner.
other than that just gonna enjoy the day.....hope everyone has a great weekend


Things I am thankful for

1. To just be able to sit and chill

2. 34 years of wonderful marrage to a great guy

Woody Woodpecker

Happy Tuesday to all

We went to Idlewild park on Sunday , My Hubby's work picnic.

We go once a year....It's a nice park for kids. So I will be scrapping a lot of those pics.

I needed a coaster cut for the Woody woodpecker roller coaster ride at Universal Studios

this pic is from last year ...This was one of Courtney's favorite rides !

I have been checking the walmarts for the new cricut lite carts all the ones around me don't have them so on the way home from the park I had my Hubby stop at a walmart along the way and guess what they had them so I got Carousal cart, it has a bunch of stuff on it that is great for using for parks.

I used DCWV paper stack
Used Design Studio for the ticket cut and stretched it to fit the page then cut it so I have the out line of the page.
Plantin Schoolbook cart for woody woodpecker cut @ 1 1/2 ins

Carousal cricut lite cart for roller coaster cut @ 5ins

Woody is a SVG file I got from

I journaled around the picture.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day

I used DCWV school stack for paper

Happy Friday all !

The sun is shining and the temps are warm....Yeah Baby life is GOOD....

Well as most of you know I stopped smoking 2 yrs ago and gained about 35 pounds this along with health issues I have been suffering from bouts of depression. Well last week I have decided to take back my live and not let all of this consume me... Been watching what I eat and portions

exercising and keeping busy (getting off my big butt ), went to the doctor the start of many visits to get many problems fixed. I have Plantar fasciitis (tendinitis) Very painful! in my heel.

I got a shot in it yesterday so I have to rest it a couple of days that's why I have been scrapping.

I also have to go July 2nd for a 2nd mammogram they found a lump 6 months ago and want to see if it is still there So please say a little prayer for me K. So come Monday tread mill here I come....Lol. Ok I got that out so on to my layout another of Dina's svg files... I just love them so cute! I wish cricut would make some of these kind of carts, I would have them all!!!!!!

I really love the eyes on them.

I used Dina's sleepy time svg file So CUTE !

inked, doodled and detailed everything...

I added lace to the bed for a bed skirt and blanket ruffle and around the lamp shade.

Pop dotted the bed to make it 3D and pop dotted the stars and the clouds.

Used buttons for the drawer handles.

Used silver foil paper for the mirror and added a ribbon on top

Debbie Mumm papers bg paper looks purple but is pink.

Cricut cart Cuttin up for the title cut @ 2 ins and George for the stars .
