My fall banner

I was having fun with my cricut today...I love the "Its a Country Life" cartridge. So many good things to chose from on it. I did alot of layering and 3d on it! Also inking. Sorry the Picture is at a distance working on which program works the best. Enjoying decorating my photos now...atleast trying to. haha... You could say I am in a work at progress. My wonderful friend...Tina made me a couple of watermark sigs...Love them. So a huge thanks to her...though she is not in blog land.
Have a wonderful day! I am feeling pretty festive with Fall...

Just a yummy Fall wreath

I am not much into Halloween but I still like to make some goodies for the boys.
So here I have made a cute little wreath. My ghosts were made out of coffee filters covering Blow pops... The Jack 0' Lanterns are made from my cricut. I used Sizzlets to make arms and leg on them. I also added some cute halloween rings pops.Enjoy your fall season....Our weather is actually pleasent here in Florida.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
God Bless...Tammy

3 Christmas Easel cards....

Please don't mind me working on making watermarks for my photos. Please read below this picture for my first post on this. :)
Here are three Christmas Easel Christmas Cards that I made....I had so much fun making these. The trees actually are 3d and can be taken off and used as an ornament. Yep...trying to be different. Also, I was trying to learn how to make a watermark. Hmmmmmm... I have to keep working on that one. hahaha...


Tomorrow we are off for a road trip to Jacksonville which is about 4 hours away. My oldest school football team is playing their team at 6pm. So we will be leaving early for that one. He rides the bus... First I have 3 of the boys dentist appointments in the morning so they are going to be missing their first day of school. Why bother going just for 2 hours....my logic.

Tonight hoping to rest up. I have been working on a crafting project....for Christmas.

Smiles...and have a great Thursday!

I may be not feeling well...but the week has been off to a great start.

Okay....some awesome news first. My oldest, Presten, who is 16 has received two acceptance letters into USF (Bulls) and UCF (Knights) ...those in the United states will get the names of the college football teams in parenthesis. We are waiting on the last two schools which are FSU (Seminoles-boo...hahaha) and his 1st pick which is UF (Go Gators!!). Looking pretty promising so far. Though we don't find out until December with FSU and then all the way in February for UF. Trying to get the scholarships forms filled out. We are wanting him to live on campus to be safer for him... He will be going in as a Junior, because he graduates from PHCC -local college with his AA in December. Which is great seeing he wants to be in the medical field. All this before he graduates High School. Yepper...I am a proud mom!!!! Now to get my Austen who is in 9th grade to focus on school rather then the girls would be great. Oh and our undefeated middle school football team lost last night to a team that they will be sharing the number 1 spot with. Atleast they had a stellar year...just had a bad night of football last night. I was excited they announced my boy Jaxten on the intercom for a tackle. He heard it and was excited. Oh and since I chatted on 3 of the boys...Colten is so cute....he has picture day today. Here is a little card that I whipped up for Christmas. It actually came together after not knowing ahead what I was planning. Hahaha.... Hope you like. I have to get in the Christmas mojo...One more birthday for my boy, Presten this month and then I can concentrate on Christmas. Any ideas for boys this year? I am at a loss.... Looking forward to Black Friday~that may help. haha...
Have a super blessed Wednesday!
Smiles....always! Tammy

pop...popcorn

What a project this was....It took some time to make this tag. I am really pleased with the results. The idea was from a scrapbook that I own. Many tweeks were made by me as I like my own spin on it. I even made some faux stitching so I could enter it into a challenge over at My Sheri Crafts.Entered it also in Wild Orchid challenge blog.
Also in a red/white Christmas... Turned Gypsy challenge

I was thinking about making multiples of these but they were alot of work.
From twisting wires, ripping, inking and cuts from cricut...I think photo copies would be easier of the tag. Laughing...
I have another fun one in progress. It will take a while to finish.
Let me know what you think. I love hearing your comments. It is really uplifting.

Also check out one of my favorite sites. Cuttlebug creations which is turning into

They are wonderful....Just won a cricut cartridge from them. Yipee!!!

A layout...surprises...and good news!

First, I will tell you a little about my layout. I wanted to theme this around my little guy on our swing that hangs from a tree. So I used my cricut for all the elements of the layout. Enlarged his picture and had to color in the shorts to take the seat portion away. Wish I hadn't put the swing on the page before his picture because I would have lined it up better with his hands. Opps...on me. LOL Let me know what you think of the page. Colten sure loves it!

In support of Breast Cancer...

With it being the month of October....I figured I would like to support those with Breast Cancer.
The slogan I computer generated says it all.
For Every Fight won....For each battle lost....For those still Fighting....I proudly wear pink! My stamp is from a wonderful blogger friend, Lisa. It is a Penny Black stamp.
I used my cricut for the ribbon.
I am sending a prayer to all of you who are fighting to win this terrible form of cancer.
Keep the faith....God is great and the master of healing!
Blessings always....Tammy

It is so beautiful out....snowflake card

We are having a beautiful day here in Sunny Florida. I love the outdoors looking so bright and cheery with a cool breeze.
I went to the doctors finally and whelp I have lots going on. They said I was on my way to Pneumonia. The middle ear infection part is probably the worst because my one ear can't hear.
How embarrassing it is when someone is talking to you and trying to get your attention and you don't hear them. It's happening a lot to me lately. So please send a prayer my way for my hearing.
I have a field trip to chaperone tomorrow for Austen, at the high school. Would be great to hear!On to my card. I wanted to make a snowflake easel card. I love the piecing of the snowflakes which so many people have been doing. I did a bunch of cuts with my cricut and pieced them together. Added stickles too.
Entered into an EASEL challenge over at ABC's
Have a wonderful day!
smiles...Tammy
