I made Pirate PJ's for my brother's 3 boys. They have a pirate bedroom. I used the cricut to cut out the ships on fabric and the letters on the legs of their pants. There is also a sash with a some letter of their first name. Ben the Bold, Eli the Elegant and Clayton the Courageous. I just love how they came out. I have an adult pirate outfit pattern and thought it had children's sizes too. Wrong!! So I adapted a couple patterns from when my son was little. (Forever ago). Can' wait til the open them.
I've got everyone done except my son's fiancee's present. It's almost done. Then to wrap it and one other present. Whew! it all got done.
PS the Ship is from My World Cart and the Lollipop is from Scrapping Table's Fall Theme set.
This is the really cool mixed media project my daughter just finished for her Art IV class at school. I think the picture had to be based on a song the teacher gave them. I'll have to double check. Anyway she is coming out of a highway on a rainy night with headlights coming.
She used paint, black tissue paper, plaster, gold and clear embossing powder. I just love it.

We have a side entrance hall where everyone comes into our home. Unfortunately everytime someone opens the door from the garage pictures far off the wall so I decided to bling up my hall with some snowflakes. Most of the Snowflakes are Penny Duncan's lovely work, a few of SVG Cuts and the rest from my cart When It's Cold Outside.

Last December DCWV & Hobby Lobby came out with Holiday vinyl in a tube. It was rather expensive from $19.99 to 29.99 I think. Anyway in January I got a "Peaceful silent night on clearance for 3 or 4 dollars. The picture made it look pretty big and the regular price had been $24.99 I threw it in a Christmas tote and pretty much forgot about it. Since then I've discover how easy vinyl is to work with and found a great supplier in Expression Vinyl. When I pulled out decoration, I was stunned to see how dinky purchased vinyl saying was. So I added my own gold star using the start my Mamaw's Legacy Shepherd's card and the manger silhouette from Scrapping Table's Christmas set. I think it really looks good and have downloaded some great looking svgs this week I'm itching to try with vinyl. I got a few empty wall space that needs a little holiday dressing.

My dear husband got a wonderful birthday present. Our daughter came home last night. It was a very long 5 1/2 days. We feel so glad that she is such a fighter and still here with us. She still has a long road ahead of her, but at least we are home. Hopefully I can get some stuff in the Art room tomorrow since I can't go to Hollie's for the day. I'm so behind on Christmas presents, cards and everything.
My 17 year old daughter is being admitted into the hospital tonight for Mono and hepatitis. I'll be off the air for a few days at lest. Please keep her in your prayers.

The 2 style of cards I made for the shut ins and military for church.
The Birthday Card I made for my friend Sandy. I used the cosmos 3-D flower from SVG Cuts. The words all came from the Wild Card. I used Silver Tinsel (outside) & Black Diamond (inside) embossing powder on them.
The gals & I went on a little adventure to a little store in Canton, IL. Scrapbooker's Dream where I had this wonderful stamp made. They also make custom scrapbook paper, laser cut files, leather, glass & wood engraving. We had a good day of fun.

Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. I had the lovely H1N1 flu last week. It's so much not fun. Now I think I've gotten a sinus infection as an after effect to it. Yeah Me! So I haven't actually done much of anything for a while. I did do this fun picture for my nephew for Christmas and have several things ready to cut. I'm going to Hollie's today so hopefully I'll so Christmas cards made.

Here is the gift and Card that I made for our Senior Saints Minister for Pastor Appreciation Month from our Small Group. He and his wife are the loveliest folks and it's been a rough year for them. He is in the hospital with cancer and not doing very well. The flowers and the pumpkin idea came from the awesome folks at SVG Cuts. If you order $9.98 worth of stuff by Tuesday the 13th you can get the Fall Mum Flower cuts for free. The Card template came from the gals over at Christmas with Cricut. If you haven't been following their blog, get over there and catch up. They have come up with some really amazing ideas. I've had so much fun checking that blog out every morning. The card came from Week 7, the snowman card. I've got go make the tea and lemonade for small group tonight.

Here are a couple of card I created yesterday. It was so nice to be able to just putz around the art room and experiment. It was so nice to have a quiet day when I felt good to do that. The first card is an angel from Stampin Up. I don't know what set. It is a friend's.
The 2nd card is the Poinsettias from Joys of the Season Cart at 2 1/2. I got the golden middles cut using the hide contour feature in Design Studio. Merry Christmas is from the Stampin Up set Cardinal Christmas. I punch it out using their punch and then found a similar scallop in Storybook Cart for the Shadow.
