Happy Birthday to Me! :o)

Happy Tuesda everyone!  I hope you are all having a fantastic day!  I decided to treat myself to a vacation day for my birthday - Great gift - being at home and still getting paid for the day of work!  What better to do than spend the day with my little girl, work on Relay stuff, and uhm, make myself a birthday card! :o)  What better way to get the card you want than to make it yourself?  I couldn't think of one either!
Of course, my card had to have some pink, some PaperTrey, Stampendous stamps, October Afternoon, flowers, glimmer mist, copics, & buttons...  all the things I simply adore in the world of paper!

Of course, I had to use a wonderful sketch from Gloria at Christian Paper Crafts!

Hope you all are having as happy of a day as I am!

God Bless You,

CPC Preview Day :o)

Hello!  Today is my day to share a sneak peak for this month's DT Delights gallery at Christian Paper Crafts :o)  I am so excited to show you my little project, it is one dear to my hear!  You see, I love to have "scripture cards" (ATC sized cards with scripture) on my desk at work for a quick reference whenever I need a pick me up (or brought back down to Earth)!  The biggest problem, they are all SUPER girly - pinks, ribbons, lace, etc...  My goal for this month was to use some "manly-er colors" to fit our theme at Christian Paper Crafts for the month!  I am excited to say that hubby approved, he still thinks they are a little girly though lol - I guess there's no hope for me :o)

Have a wonderful day and don't forget that the special May Design Team Delights gallery opens tomorrow at Christian Paper Crafts for Super Sisters and King's Daughter members!  Hope to see you there!

Oh, and as a follow up, I had some questions about my projects from the other day...  The egg pattern closest to mine can be found by googling "you tube crocheted egg pattern - It is the first one that comes up by a lady Thearsa (could not add the link for some reason tonight)... (--> Oh, and I have a hard time sticking to a pattern or recipe of any sort, so I am sure I changed it some) and the camera strap was just winged for the most part with a little inspiration from here and there, oh an the fact that I am tight and wouldn't pay for someone else to make it...  maybe that should be a tutorial ;o)

God Bless You,

Change is in the Air...

What you may ask?  Oh, just some things I have been praying about ;o)  And you will find out soon!  The announcment will be made on my blog in a few days, and I can't "wait wait wait" (in the words of my 4 year old)!
For now, let's look at some crafty goodness that has happened in this ole house...
Hmmm, do you see what I see?  Lovely little crocheted eggs that were the cutest Easter decorations and oh so easy to make!  I simply googled for a youtube tutorial on crocheted eggs!  I could whip one - two of these up on the way to work of the morning and another one - two on the way home (on days I rode with my hubby, of course)!
Oh, and those pretty ruffles in the other photo you may ask?  That would happen to be my new homemade camera strap color!  Sooo easy and I think I'm in love :o)

So, not your typical paper-crafting post most are accustomed to from this blog...  I think I like it!  :o)

God Bless You,
