Cricut Fathers Day Card

So my husband absolutley loves baseball and is coaching my sons baseball teams. I'm pretty sure he is going to love this fathers day card!

I used the Sports Mania and Beyond Birthday cartridges, welding the ball and the card togelther in Design Studio. I then layered the ball, frame and blue background in. I sure do love my bug!

Papertrey Ink Inspires Me!

I spend a lot of time on the Papertrey Ink website drooling over their beautiful stamp sets, paper, ribbon and all kinds of other wonderful goodies. I just love their logo and it inspired me to create this card!

My New Scrap Desk!

I have been so busy lately that I haven't gotten to share my new scrap desk! We were putzing around Hobby Lobby week befor last and I came accross this beauty!

For those of you that know me, we live in a tiny, tiny little house and I was formerly tucked in a cramped space under the stairs in the basement. Now don't get me wrong - I was happy to have that little space that was all my own, but the work surface was too narrow to fit a layout on, so I was forced to stand and scrap on the deep freeze (what we won't put up with to play with paper)! This unit won't hold all my stuff but the stuff I use all the time is tucked into the drawers and close at hand! I love that the drawers pull out and I can just set one beside me to pick out what I need, the put it back. The fold out work surface is just the perfect size and my cricut is soo handy. This is the first photo I took, but will post more as I get things organized! I am still in the basement, but no longet tucked beneath the stairs like a troll! I am over the moon with this desk and having a blast getting things just the way I want them!

Funny Cat!

As you all prolly know, we live out in the country and in the country you gotta have a cat around the place. We, as good country folk, have a cat who we like to call Bob. I saved him from certain death when I worked at a vet clinic 11 years ago. He has been a really good cat but,probably should have been a house cat because he has very long hair, that gets terribly matted each winter. So each spring (yeah we have to wait till June till its warm enough at night) we take him in and have him shaved. His pink little body never fails to bring a smile to our faces. Please to enjoy " Nekkid Bob"!
