I'm here for the boos!

Fun little project I made for my kids and their men :) Oh gawd... men? It's sad when you actually put that down into words. You know what that means right? Augh... I don't think I'm ready to admit that they have grown up even though they have been out of the house for a few years.
 I put some bling on the cups for the girls and left them off for the guys. I just don't think they would have appreciated it as much ;)  The stems were glittered on both.
 Since they are both going to have a Halloween party I thought these would come in handy!
 The words on this one is from Miss Kates Cuttables.   She has a freebie EVERYDAY!!!
All of these were done with my Silhouette and vinyl. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Roses are red

I had to put down the vinyl and actually cut paper again! haha

MIL Birthday is Friday and she looks forward to my cards

What girl doesn't like bling and roses?

and ribbons

and class

I got the started idea from Quilling Ideas. Paper is For the Record from echo park. Penny Duncans spiral rose file (free), brackets are from the Silhouette store called Holiday Label ($0.99), not sure where I got the leaves. Small stones are from The Rhinestone World and are actually heat applied. Stones inside the flower are cheepo's that I have no clue where I got ;)

A post from a very bad blogger

I've never been a great blogger but come on! Mothers Day? wowzers!  I'll just post what I've been up to in a nut shell...

1) got my first paying gig from an archery club! I designed and cut them up 50 window decals! whoot whoot! The loved them but I don't have a picture to show you :( sorry.

2) Made a new work out tank. Hot pink on grey. BAM!

3) Made a new wine tasting shirt ;)  This was a challenge I joined in on with a Face Book group. Now that I look at it... looks like I should be drinking a margarita with those colors I picked.

4) Completed the Tough Mudder. Pretty proud of myself for completing every single obstacle on the very first try! My teammates were impressed too! I have to credit it on the Cross Fit training I've been doing this year. The course was 11 miles up and down a ski slope. I'm sure one of them had to have been a black diamond because it was straight up! Over 20 obstacles including the Arctic Enema, Boa Constrictor, Electric Eel, Shock Therapy, Everest, Funky Monkey, Hold your Wood, Kiss of Mud, Log Jammin', Trench Warfare and Walk the Plank. Soooo fun! Very hard but fun!

5) Made hubby a glow in the dark shirt. This one is so much fun! You should see it on him. He looks like a big kid! haha

 6)  Hubby and I at Sand Harbor Lake Tahoe waiting for the Shakespearean Festival to start! We rode up there on our motorcycles. You can see behind him is one of my saddle bags we used as a pick nick bag lol

7) No pics but my garden this year is awesome! So much lettuce that I have to give it away! Tomatoes are slow this year but almost ready to pic my first one, zucchini and other squash has been delish and the cucumbers actually survived this year! Still waiting on those to mature.

So this has been a little taste of my life since Mothers Day. I haven't done a card since but I've been loving my Cameo and trying new things with it.

Hope you enjoyed as much as I have! Have an exciting day!

Mothers Day

I've been playing around in my room a little more now that the challenge is over. No I didn't win the competition but I don't need to win that to win.  I lost almost 20 pounds in 12 weeks and a total of 21 inches! So I really did win :)  I signed up to continue the punishment Cross Fit because I really do like the intense work outs and I love the results I got!

So... Mother's day is coming up next weekend here in the States. I made another cup and a card and in time to mail them out so they get them before Mothers Day!  I know! I surprised myself too! haha

This is the cup I made...

I belong to All Things Silhouette forum on Face Book and boy do they enable  teach you a lot there. They also have a bunch of files to share. I got the 'M' from there. the font used for the 'Mom' and SuperPower is from Lettering Delights and is called 'Free Spirit'. Only $3 and in a few bundles too.

This is the card I made...

Each Mom is going to get one of each. My Mom will get this cup and Hubby's Mom will get a cup with peach color. Their favorite colors :)

Isn't it a pretty file? Oh! Did I mention that it's FREE!!??!! I didn't? Well, this file came from the great file maker Miss. Meredith over at Birds Cards. She's got a few samples that she did too. Each one is so pretty. She's the same Miss Wonderful that I got that cute little cupid for my V-day box I made for Hubby.

I did mine in a paper piecing technique. I love the final look and I'm sure the Mom's will too. After all... no matter how old you get, Mom's always love something you put the time, thought and effort into making yourself! And if not... I ordered flowers as a back up LMAO!.

Well... that's if for now. I think next I'll make a bling shirt for myself. Or maybe a bling decal. So much fun but so little time. I heart my Silhouette! 

Sending this love to:

Blinging Baby!

Wow! I'm loving this blinging thing! Love love love shiny, sparkle stuff :) I bought 3 onsies from Walmart, the rhinestones sample pack from Craft Vinyl and comes with everything you need to make the flower and stars and have a bunch left over. The crown was used with Hot Pink which was a must and sold separate.  I put the images in my Silhouette DE software and traced them and added an extra border for the flower. I love how they turned out and my Nephews wife loves them! BONUS!

These were quick and so easy!  I purchased the crown from Silhouette but the star and flower are from Lettering Delights freebie Banner Day SVG. All you have to do for this is sign up!

Lettering Delights

Not only that but all the 'SVG' files are only $1 right now and usually have at least 6 separate files in each
