Made these for my son's baseball team's last game. My husband coached, but he can't be at the last game, so this is a little "attaboy" for "his" kids. Used sports mania for this one.

Ordered some vinyl from craftvinyl.com to make this tumbler for my daughter's boyfriend. It's the VMI logo on one side and his name on the other. Used varsity letter for this one.
Made this flower bouquet using my imagine for my son to take to his second grade teacher today. Used the Mother's Day cart, Lori's Garden, and Elise. The pot is what's really cool.....I painted a terracotta pot with blackboard paint and my son wrote his name and thank you on it in cute little second grader chicken scratch before we took it in today.

Got pulled into being some sort of class mom for one of my kiddos this year after being assured I would have to do "nothing." Apparently, "nothing" means you supply the kleenex and disinfectant wipes for the year. It also means you have to buy a vase, make a card, and collect one flower from each kid for a bouquet during teacher appreciation week. And, the kicker, you spend $40 on a tile for an end of year gift that each kid is supposed to come and sign and give you $2 toward, but only 6 kids show up (including your own). How sad is that? I'm embarassed to give her the thing, and it's going to hang on the corridor in the school. I may have to move. :) Alabama, here I come! So, here's the card I made for her to go along with the end of year gift. And, the kicker, I don't like it. I combined some cricut cuts with an image from the imagine, and I think it looks weird. Would have been better to keep it all cricut or imagine, but it's done, and I'm not doing it again. I have a bad attitude, huh?
My daughter asked me to make a card for her music teacher, who is leaving at the end of the school year. He was hired to fill in for a music teacher to took a year off when she had her baby. He was "tough" to quote my kiddo, but she learned alot. Personally, I liked him and will be sad to see him go. I would like this card much better if I had done the staff (I think that's what it's called) black instead of gold and glittered. I think it would have looked much cleaner, but it's done, and I'm not pulling it apart, as tempted as I was to do just that. And, my sentiment is stamped crooked. What is the secret to stamping straight? I will have to do some research....there has to be a trick (she hopes feverishly). So, all in all, I guess it's a good thing he is leaving, so he can't tell people about my crooked, glittery card next year. LOL!

I was messing around on the internet last night and found a tutorial to fold a dollar like a shirt and tie. When I was done, I thought, now how can I use this on a card....and it was my daughter, Kate, who said, can you make person for it? I sat down on my computer, opened up Design Studio, and this is the result. It's a happy card, but it was a lot of work...so many cuts.....I used All Sports for the golf cart, Everyday Pop Up Cards for the mug of beer, and Everyday Paper Dolls for the golfer and all his golfing stuff. The tutorial to fold the dollar is on youtube. Just search "shirt and tie dollar" and you should find it. It was kinda tough to follow in some portions, but stick with it and say some bad words and then things will happen for you. ;) I can't wait for the rest of my lillies to bloom.....there's 4 colors in there.....my daughter wanted me to order them from QVC. Good call, Maddie! Thanks for taking a peek!

I made 15 of these cards for my daughter to write thank you notes for graduation gifts she got recently. I used George, Accent Essentials, and Happy Graduation for these. The little owls are stickers from Michael's and the sentiment is stamped. I am not a stamper....so, every stamp was made while I held my breath....lol...glad that's over!

This card was made for my son and daughter's kindergarten teacher. They both had him and they both LOVED him. He is so good with kids. I was a little nervous when I met him. We had just moved here from Raleigh, NC and he looked like he was about 15. I thought, uh oh, he can't know what he's doing. Yeah, teach me a lesson. He was the best teacher we've ever had. And now he only looks 21, but I'm sure he's going to be a wonderful father. This was made using Baby Steps, George, and Accent Essentials.
