Happy Saturday.

Hi! I slept in today - it was almost 6 am! lol

I thought I would show you the piano box I made for Gabe's music teacher at school. We have enjoyed her for the last 4 years. He goes to a different school for 4th and 5th grade so we will miss her.

Take a look:

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
Have a wonderful weekend!
God bless our troops.

Happy Monday

Hi, everyone. We have 8 days of school left, 5 days this week and 3 days next week. Our year always ends on a Thursday and next Monday is a holiday. Gabe is looking forward to 4th grade and a new school. But first, summer.

I do have a card to show you. One of our nephews has a birthday next week. I think that takes care of May. Then I have to concentrate on June. Father's Day, hubby's birthday and a sister's birthday.

I also decided to show you these cute flower treat boxes. I made them red, white and blue for July. I love red, white and blue for summer.

thanks for stopping by. I so appreciate it.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

It's Tuesday!

Well we made it past another Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mothers Day.  We had a very nice weekend.  Hubby and Gabe gave me a new charm for my Pandora bracelet and I like that. If it was up to me, I would have bought new pretty papers. But I love new charms.

Our two middle sons, daughter-in-law and 2 more grandsons came for lunch on Sunday.
so it was a nice day.

Today I'm going to show you a couple of projects from the newest kit from SVGCuts.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie 

(only 12 days of school left)

Super Friday

I don't know why I said super - there's nothing special about this one - but it's the weekend!

We have a busy weekend this week. I would much rather "veg" out. Oh well.

Today I'm going to show you some random files from Sil online store. A lot of their files do not fit together perfectly. They have some cute ones but I am so spoiled to SVGCuts.  (thank you Mary and Leo)

Here they are:

This little strawberry basket I love!

I seem to like to make teapots. This one is simple and fast.
SVGCuts has a big fancy one but I did not have time to start it.

                              There was a little cup and saucer to match. A  very easy and fast.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Happy Wednesday

Good morning, all. Hope all is well with you.

Before I get to the project, I just want to say a big thank you to my loyal bloggie friends. Mind you, I don't get a lot of traffic (and that used to bother me) . I thought you had to have hundreds of visitors daily or you were just a failure. That even kept me from crafting.

But the friends I have encourage me and keep me going on this journey are so special to me. I love hearing from you and I love visiting you. So thank you so much for making this special.

I have a card for one of my sisters today. She recently retired (she didn't even tell us she was thinking about it).
We were shocked. I'm so happy for her.

So here's her card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Wow is it Monday again already?

Happy Monday. I hope you all had a great weekend. I actually did quite a bit of crafting, YEA!

Today I want to show you a small cottage from the SVGCuts Peony Cottage file.
I made this one about 3 weeks ago. I added a couple of things. The bicycle is in the same kit - I just borrowed it from a card file. I cut several layers so it would be strong enough to use. The bushes are from a carrot box file in the sil online store. I used the greenery from the box.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

It's Friday...

lets shout it from the rooftops! So glad for the weekend. Still haven't made a "bigger" project.

I keep thinking about cards  I'm going to need  for the next few months and don't get anything done.
I need to make a decision and get the cards out of the way so I can make something I really want to do.

So in the mean time I will cut files from the Sil online store. And make a list of all the cards I need for the near future. I do have some ideas for cards that I'm excited about. Maybe that will get me going.

So today I'm going to show you what I did yesterday.

These are both Lori Whitlock files.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
