My Mom and more!

I took this picture of my mom while she was here visiting. I just LOVE it.
I love her smile, her rollers in her hair, and I just Love her.

Before she showed up to my house She told me "Connie when I get there I have a craft I want  to do." Well Of course I was "sure MOM let's do it!" She was so happy to make her craft and I loved crafting with her.

just a few more pictures of the family
My first selfie with my mom and dad.
I have one more card to share with you. I made this for my SIL I was sending her a box with goodies from Daiso and the Dollar spot from Target and I had to make her a handmade card.

Have a wonderful day everyone. TFL Connie

Die Cutting Saturday(Tuesday)

I blogged the other day about a layout  I did using free cut files from Paper Issues . I had some leftover pieces that I didn't use on my layout and I didn't want to throw them away I wanted to use them!!! Yes I am that scapper that saves all her scraps!

I decided to use the letters LOVE on a card you know with Valentine's around the corner. But I think this card can be used also for a everyday card to Hubby or to the kids. To remind them that I LOVE THEM.
The flower is a print and cut using my Silhouette Cameo and the paper is OLD Valentine paper pack from K&Co from Micheal's.

I also used my sewing machine woohoo Love the stitched look. I also colored in the word LOVE my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Cards,cards,and more Cards!!!

This lil card is my favorite. Isn't it the cutest thing ever. I have been playing with some Copics that I just got (and I only got a few cuz wow they are expensive) and some Spectrum Noir by the way they work great together. So I have been coloring away and I printed this free lil animal from good ole Pinterest

Well of course I had to do some Valentine Cards o.k I know they don't say Happy Valentines on them there is a reason! Here is the reason, I made this
Valentine Decor for a friend and well she posted on Facebook and I had 2 people ask if I could make them one and I said "of course"! Now I want to mail them a Thank you Valentine theme card.  

This Birthday card was all cut out of my Silhouette.
 I scrap lifted from  Pinterest . This card was just perfect and didn't want to change a thing. I need to make more Birthday cards March is a very full Birthday month.

Free cut files from Paper issues

I figured I would take a stab at making a layout, cuz let me tell you it has been a long time since I have made some layouts. I do not know if it is just me but I tend to get in a rut and do one thing and than I get burnt out and than I have to do another thing. In my case I have been trying to catch up on my Project Life and well  I needed to take a break. Whatever I am behind!!! So I was checking out Paper Issues blog and saw that they had free cut files  and well hey what the heck lets do this!!!
Here is my take:

I got some Color Shine (Heidi Swapp), sewing, washi tape(I got from a sweet friend,TFS), wood pieces and PL cards all thrown on this page!!! 

That was tons of fun!!! Thanks Paper Issues for the inspiration . Now If only I could scrap faster ( I scrap at a snails pace)!!!

FYI my house just shook and I don't know if it was a earthquake or the building of the new homes across the street???
