Day 68 I want candy

I has been awhile since I've posted anything. Things have been crazy at my house. My camera died so I have to scan everything in. My husband lost his job for next school year and in trying to go back to school. But today I finally got a chance to hide in the basement and create. I got a challenge done from 2 weeks ago and hope this week to get some more done and get caught up. This was the challenge at 365 cards for Day 68. You had to use an image of candy on your card, or let candy inspire your card. Well i've been craving M&M's and finally bought some today and that's what inspired this card for me.

I used plain card stock a piece of veluim I had in my stash for the jar and the M&M were made with cardstock an m stamp with silver ink. I used my Doodlebug cartridge for my Cricut machine.

Hope you all enjoy.

Day 61 Leaf it up to Me

The challenge for today was to use a leaf. I knew I needed some simple thinking about you notes I could give my mother to send to her friends now that she's living with us so I thought these sunflowers would do the trick. Before I make her any more I'll center up the flowers better but this was my first attempt at a card I could make more than 1 of so I look forward to fixing them.


Day 69 Glad for Grad

Okay, I'm playing catch up with my 365 card challenge. This one was to make a graduation card. I'm going to use this one for another one of my 8th graders graduating this month. This is for a special girl that was a handful in the first grade but has really grown up to be a very nice young lady. I really look forward to watching her graduate.

Mother's Day

This past week has been very difficult aroung my house. Than today being mother's day has been even harder for me. My husband and I are unable to have kids and being a teacher and around them all day long it makes it very hard to celebrate a day you feel like you will never participate in with a biological child. We are pursuing adoption and I can't wait to welcome a child into my home but it's still hard watching all your friends have kids and wanting them so badly and it not happening for you. I know I'm the mother to all my students but that doesn't make it any easier on this day. Don't get me wrong I love my furry children but they can't give me hugs and say I Love You. Here's a picture of my 3 babies (for now)

Day 64-Super Sketchy Sunday #8

Today's challenge on 365 cards was to follow the following sketch.

I hadn't made a thank you card yet and just wanted to make something small and delicate. I used hero arts stamps and paper from my files.

Have a good evening.


Day 63 - Floral Fest

Today on 365 Challenges the idea was to use 8 blossoms. Since Mother's Day is soon I thought I'd take this opportunity to make a card for my grandmother. I used paper I had and a punch/embosser my sister-in-law got me for my birthday. This card was a lot of fun. Enjoy


Day 62 - Age is just a number

Today for the card challenge we had to do a card with a number on it. This was pretty easy for me since my husband will be celebrating his 40th birthday this summer. I'm hoping to give him a surprise party. So I thought this would be a good time to get started on his invites. The only thing I'm adding to the card are some red stickles to the cupcake to give it some shine. I used some of his favorite colors.
