Fourth of July 1 Year Wedding Anniversary Card

Yesterday July 4rth was my 1 year Wedding Anniversary 💙

I made this card for my husband using a tutorial from Mary @stampsnlingers I love how it came out. It's always fun to learn new techniques. 

And I had a migraine free day to create which is so rare these days. I felt blessed that yesterday (and today so far-knock on wood) I have had no migraines. Friday...that was another story, absolutely horrible day. But for me two days in a row is Amazing!

Fathers Day Card 2020

I'm so lucky I was able to spend Fathers Day with my Dad. I've only gotten to see him twice in the past 3 months so I feel very blessed to have gotten to spend it with him and we had a wonderful day! 

Yes he is 💙 (it's hard to see in the picture but that's a very shiny gold foil card stock underneath and I love how it came out)

Thank you for stopping by! 💜

Love It Chop It

Hi Everyone! Saturday I went through my bins of scrap paper and cut them all up to make card fronts. These were not full 12x12 pieces. I will eventually do this with all my full sheets of pattern paper I just want to try to use these up first. 

Thanks @kyliebertuccisudemonstrator for the #loveitchopit idea 💕 After watching Kylie's love it chop it video I spent Saturday doing this. If you have not seen her You Tube video yet you need to check them out. I've provided links below;

This is going to really make it easier to create cards quickly having the card fronts already cut up and ready to use. 

Thank you for stopping by! 💜

Mothers Day Giraffe Foil Quill Card

Another late blog post of a Mothers Day Card I made using the WRMK foil quill and an embossed Taylored Expressions sentiment strip. 💗🦒 My mom absolutely LOVES giraffe's. As soon as I saw this sweet giraffe Cricut image, I knew I had to use this for the card I was making her.

We dropped this off to her the day before Mothers Day with a cheesecake my hubby made and a gift. This was the first time I saw my mom in 8 weeks which was extremely hard as I usually see her a few times as week. 

We had a nice social distancing get together in the backyard for a little bit. It meant so much to me to get to see her, especially on Mothers day weekend. It was really starting to take a toll on me mentally with not getting to spend any time at all with my parents and brother during the past two months. I cannot wait until I get to see them more often, but It's still going to be awhile unfortunately until that happens. 

Thank you for stopping by! 💜

Floral Foil Quilled Mothers Day Card

I'm a little late with posting this to my blog. A Mothers Day Card for my Amazing Mother-in-law 💗using WRMK Foil Quill with my Cricut and Taylored Expressions sentiment strip. 

We have been quarantining in the house for almost 2 months by the time Mothers day came. My mother in law lives downstairs so she has been the only one that we have been really having any contact with. We had a nice dinner together and had a nice relaxing day. 

I haven't had much time to create as I have still been working full time (I am blessed to still be able to work full time mostly from home during this time) so I made my mom and mother in law cards that same weekend. I think it came out simple, but beautiful. I love how stunning the look of the foil quill comes out when I make cards with it. 

Thank you for stopping by! 💜

My Craft Space

Hi Everyone! I wanted to  post a picture of my updated craft space while it is all organized and clean thanks to my first migraine free weekend since early November. (These have been a very tough few months for me and i'm praying this new injectable is going to change this for the better) I have a small space less than half our living room. It works well for now but I cannot wait to have my own craft room again someday. I'm so happy I finally have it organized some and clean (for a few minutes anyways)



Thank you for taking a look, if you have any questions about anything please feel free to comment below and I would be more than happy to answer them. I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during all of this COVID-19 craziness. These times are very stressful, difficult, and uncertain for all of us. I feel very blessed to still be working full time and have crafting as something to take my mind off of it all for awhile. I hope everyone is hanging in there and doing well <3
