It has been a long time since I posted. I have been a little preoccupied playing farmville on facebook. My new "spring resolution" is to start back on my card making and scrapbooking.
It is supposed to rain tomorrow so my goal is to make a card for mother's day. Now that I have written it down I will have to follow through. It will make me accoutable now!!!
Thanks for all the followers that have stayed with me and I hope to have more items posted soon.

Bottom drawer holds my personal trimmer, Martha Stewart glitter, Cricut tool kit (under my trimmer), and misc tools.
Middle Cube was originally a paper cube with the dividers. I kept one in place and used my Creative Memories paper dividers to store my patterned paper. I have a sterilite container with my 8x8 DCWV paper packs, and misc magazines, paper, etc.. to the side.
The Bottom cube is a paper cube but I use it to keep other things organized. It holds my 12" trimmers, cricut 12x12 mats, Martha Stewart Score Board, extra pages for my current album and another album with pages.

Since we had the party at the park we had to make the shelter stand out (not really but we did anyway LOL). Here is a close up of wooden characters that we painted. We projected each character onto a piece of wood. Then cut them out, painted them, put a clear coat on top, then finally mounted to a stake so that we could hammer them into the ground. We tried to get each kids' picture with the characters.

Lastly is a card that my daughter will be giving her daddy. She wanted to make him a softball themed card so we found big baseball stickers WM, I hand cut the field, mounted it to some baseball saying background paper, cut DAD from PS and that was it. Pretty simple but I think he will love it since he plays softball for a team at work. The inside says "You're a homerun hit out of the park" She is so excited to give it to him. Thank for looking at my creations.

This is a 4x4 card with simple paper and the same flamingo cut except I added the wing and used a pop dot to make it stand out.
I hope her friend likes it.

This year our Daughter turned 5 so we of course had a big party. She wanted a Princess Party but she also wanted to include the boys so the theme ended up being Knights & Princesses. I made the invitations on my computer using a Medieval Font. I had to be frugal so we made a lot of the deocorations. We bought the Fisher Price inflatable bouncer on sale for a little more than it would have been to rent one. My mom made her cake and we used things that we had around the house for the kids to play with. They had a GREAT time.
My daughter's classroom had a lot of birthdays in May (including her's). I knew that buyig aard and a gift for each one would have killed the purse strings. So I found inexpensive gifts and made the cards from things I had around the craft room.
Here are a few of the cards....

Here is a card that I made for a good friend of mine. It was made from DCWV Color Block Prints paper and Random flowers that I rec'd from a RAK. I used a stencil for the lettering.
Here is the treat bag we made for my daughter's Pre-K class. I used Jen Balcer's (?) tutorial on Split Coast Stampers to create the bag (2-5-7-10) and used my Cricut to cut 24 hearts using the Quantity Button (what a great function).

I did it 31 cards in 31 days. This card was inspired by the ribbon I found at a local pottery store. I stamped black dots on red card stock, added the ribbon to outside. The inside I stamped red dots and drew my own lady bugs on the red background. I came up with the saying/poem for the card.
This challenge was GREAT. I have made a lot of my family cards for the year but I still have a lot more to go. I want to thank Jennifer Wuthrich for the challenge and for getting me going.
Thanks for sharing this experience with me.
