Today I've been putting the updates on my Gypsy and getting it ready to use with my new Cricut Imagine when the time comes. It is so exciting.

I also finished a tag project for my son. He needed 70 some small tags and then two special larger tags for two flower arrangements. I used Tim Holtz ink pads and they turned out so cool. Most of the small tags were cut and printed on the Imagine. The rest were cut out with my Expression, with a little golf cart I glued onto the tag. The whole project went so fast except the gluing. LOL

I didn't keep any of the extras so I don't have a picture of them. He is going to get a picture of the finished floral arrangements and I'll try and post one of those.

I really would like a couple more carts, I have very few and usually make them work but with projects I can see that there are some carts that would give me more choices. Carts are always good for a gift list when it comes to birthdays, etc.

A few new cards

Here are just a few cards that I've finished. I don't get them photographed and so I can't share all of them. There are so many. The one on the bottom I used some dried flowers from my garden, covered them with Mod Podge and when dry I cut them out and glued them onto my cards. I really like using dried flowers and leaves when possible.

Our recent Birthday

Our youngest grandson, Ethan, turned 2 in June. He sure liked the toys and his Hot wheels. Chocolate cake is his favorite and you can see he ate the whole thing. At the top is a picture of both our grandsons, when presents are around they both have to be part of it. Nathan loves to help his little brother open them and then play with them. If Ethan lets him. LOL

What's going on?

What a Spring it has been. If only we could get some warmer weather so my little garden will grow. It is the first time in years that I've planted a veggie garden and everything is just waiting to grow till the warmer weather comes. The NW does not have a lengthy growing season and I can hardly wait to have fresh veggies from my garden. I should have pictures soon, just have to download them from my camera. LOL

It is time to move on...I'm closing my Delphi forum after 9 years and will spend more time here on my blog and in other areas on the Internet. Change is good!

Little purses

Here are some little purses I made for our little girls that we help support through World Vision. I thought I had posted them but found I hadn't. They are so much fun to make and fun to give.
They were cut from the Ultimate Crafter's Companion. I sure like having this in my craft supplies and tools. It has come in so handy over and over again. I use it to make lots of envelopes to match my cards.

Cricut Classes

Classes can be so much fun!

I just finished 2 classes teaching us how to use our Cricut Expression. We used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and found out so many ways to using it. I didn't have the cartridge and so through my Yahoo group I was able to buy one from one of the gals. I'm so glad I have that cartridge now.

I'm cutting vinyl now. I was scared to try it and it was so simple. So if anyone hesitates, don't it is easy and a great way to decorate.

I also received a Gypsy from my Hubby. WOW I'm having so much fun with it and I can weld letters. I love that!

I'll so be taking some pictures of my cards and creations and posting them. It seems that gets put on the back burner way too often. ;)

Be back soon....

The holidays are over and now it's time to move on into a new year.

I have not been doing much with my scrap booking. Yesterday I started scrapping again. I want to finish my youngest grandson's first year scrapbook. Then I can give both the boys their scrapbooks. I hope they will like them for years to come.

What this year will bring is only up to our Lord God. The signs are all around of the end coming soon. I believe in the rapture and Christ's soon return. Our faith belongs to Him as he is in total control.

I would ask you to remember those in Haiti that are working day and night to help those in dire straights. We support 2 girls in Haiti through World Vision and have gotten a report that our girls and their families are safe. In fact none of the several hundred workers are all safe and now working hard to help. God was so merciful to all of the World Vision team. Praise God! If you can help please go to the web site. Just click on the words World Vision and it will take you to the site. Thank you!

I will soon be posting some pictures.
