Want Beautiful SVG's...

I recently joined the group SureCutsAlotUsers. What a fun group! One member is Paulo Guimaraes who has a blog at He has so many wonderful and beautiful files to download free. I could spend all day and night just cutting out his files. Reading his blog I learned that he is a doctor in Brazil and he works with children. He's a gorgeous hunk of a man too! Want to bet some of his patients have a crush on him? I would!! Who wouldn't want a wonderful guy like this that not only takes care of children but takes the time to make such beautiful art too!!

Paulo, thank you for sharing your talents! Your designs really take my breath away!!

Blessings to all!

I have ready so many blogs over the past year and have entered so many comments in hopes of winning blog candy. There are so many talented people in the crafting world! Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Cindy McVey's blog at She is a Cricut designer and Stampin Up! demonstrator. Seeing some of the papers and creations she has on her blog really is an inspiration.

I was lucky enough to post a comment on her blog and she recently notified me that I won a limited edition Cricut cartridge called Mother's Day 2010! Here's what it looks like in the package:

Woohoo, I'm so excited and can't wait to receive my new cartridge. What a wonderful surprise! Thank you Cindy for offering the chance to win this!

Happy crafting to everyone!

New Inspiration

One of my goals for the new year is to craft more. Since October I lost most of my oomph for crafting after losing my dog, Pepper. Since the week of Christmas, it has been busy around here with the new puppy and she really keeps us busy, especially me. Mommy's new shadow. She gives me hope that we will have many, many years together. She really has pulled me out of a slump.

With Valentine's day coming in a few weeks, I decided to start making a few cards for some very special people. Here is a card that I made to send to my parents from the doggies.

Step Ladder Card

I used all SU supplies: Real Read & Whisper White Cardstock, Love You Much stamp set, and a Fiskar's Heart border punch. The tiny hearts are from what was punched out of the border punch. I wrote a message on the back of the card. For the heart I stamped it in Versamark and Real Red ink. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter and embossing powder and heat seat that. Inside the main heart I added a little clear color diamond which really looks neat! I think it's super cute!

Hope you are having a great week and have fun crafting!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone! It's been quite busy around here with the new puppy. I've also been trying to get time to make cards and work on scrapbooking. I'm not getting as much done as I would like since we've added to the family. Making her debut on mommy's blog, please say hello to:


Hi everyone! My name is Jett and I'm 9 weeks old now. I love my new home and I'm having so much fun around here. I have a new friend, Storm and she's reminds me of my mommy. Storm plays with me, now that I'm starting to get bigger. We have so much fun together and she is teaching me so many neat things. I've got a huge box of toys to play with so I'm never bored. I fly around the house like a jet fighter and when I bark, mommy says I'm making "Jett" noise. That's why mommy named me Jett.

Isn't she a cutie? I took this picture when she was barking at me. Sometimes puppies bounce up and down when they bark and that's the picture I was trying to get. Imagine my surprise when I looked in the camera and saw that her ears went straight out like wings. So I call this one Jett wings. The best thing about Jett, is that she is healing my heart over the loss of my beloved Pepper. At this very second, Jett is sleeping under my chair as I write this. Yep, she is my little shadow, which by the way is her birth mommy's name.

We didn't bring home the little yellow lab that was affectionately labeled Trooper. His tail healed up and his fur grew back according to the latest email I got from Laurel, our breeder. He is growing by leaps and bounds so we are sure she will be able to place him. If she can't find a home for him, then we will be the last resort and he can come here. I believe Laurel will find him an awesome family to take him. He is such a cute little boy to begin with!

I hope everyone is enjoying the new year and wish everyone the best of health and happiness!

More later...
