Baby Mason's Banner

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share the banner I made for my new grandson's nursery.  This also hung at the baby shower last week.  For the life of me I haven't been able to remember which cricut cartridge I got the onesie from.  I've looked and looked and can't find it.  Ugh!  So very sorry.

All the paper is from the DCWV paper stack "Baby Boy."  I just love that paper.  As I previously shared in another post, I made the baby shower invitations, shower favors, this banner and some tags with two stacks of that paper.  I'm also going to be making a mini album for the pictures from the baby shower.  I'm having such a good time with all of this.

Sorry the photo isn't that great, this was hanging on a wall at the baby shower.  Can you believe I forgot to take a picture when I finished it at my house.  Duh!  It really looks gorgeous (cute).  The letters were cut from the Kate's ABCs cartridge.  The embellishments are from Teddy Bear Parade and Baby Steps cartridges.  

I will be linking up with the Pink Cricut's "Link Up Tuesday" and A Diamond in the Stuff's "Time To Shine Party."  Please join me and see all the other wonderful crafters. (also linked with  Joyful Stamper's "Inspire Me Fridays."

Without further ado here is: MASON!

As always I'd love for you to follow me and I really get a boost from your comments.

God bless and have a grateful day.

"Baby" Bear

Hi All,

I hope you're having a great day, I know I am.  I am in the midst of swapping my craft room with another room in my house and organizing the two new places.  I will have a much larger and sunnier craft room to work in.  Hopefully I will be able to keep it a little tidier.  Ya know, when those crafty juices get rolling stuff just seems to pile up.  Anyway, a little paint, new curtains and organization should do the trick.

So, onto Mojo Monday!  If you've never played along with Mojo Monday you should really check out the blog.  Each week there is a new sketch design from which to make your creation.  Then upload your project to their blog and check out all the other great cards others have made.  It is a lot of fun!  Anyhoo, this week is MOJO281 sketch.

And here is what I created...

The papers are from DCWV Baby Boy Stack, the bear is from cricut cartridge "Teddy Bears on Parade" (I love that cartridge), the "Baby" sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink and the inside sentiment is from Cardz TV's stamp set "Beary Sweet."  I'm really please how it came out.

So go over to Mojo Monday's blog and play along.

God bless and have a grateful day!

Valentine's For Hubby

Have I told you all how happy I am to be back?  I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it... Pointer Sisters revisited  :-).  I'm also thrilled to find out that Momo from Made by Momo is also back from a long hiatus.  I love her creations and she's so sweet too.  Welcome back Momo!

So today's card was made for my husband for Valentine's Day.  The stamp is from La La Land stamps and is called Sweetheart Marci.  I just love these stamps because I love to color and they are just so darn cute.  Coloring was one of my favorite past times as a kid.  I used copics to color her in.  The paper is from last year's BoBunny collection Smoochable.

I have linked this card to Craft-O-Maniac's and The Gunny Sack"s Monday Linky Parties.

I hope you enjoyed my card.  God bless and have a grateful day.

Hi Everybody,
Well, after quite a long time away I'm so happy to report that I'm back to crafting and blogging.  The fall and winter have been beyond busy in my life so crafting and blogging had to take a back seat.  I won't bore you with the details but I'm excited to be back and have some great stuff to share with you.

First up, I'm sharing the invitations, favors and banner I made for my daughter's baby shower.  Yes, I mentioned in my last post that I am going to be a first-time grandmother.  My little Mason James is due March 17, St. Patty's Day.  I can hardly wait!  The baby shower was yesterday and it was wonderful.  I was so happy to offer my crafting skills to the event.  So please enjoy the photos.  All papers are from DCWV's Baby Boy Stack.  I apologize I can't remember which cricut cartridge I got the onesie from.  I'll be doing a separate post on the banner so I'll do a little more searching to find that info.

As always, I love your feedback and hope you might become a follower.

Have a grateful day and may God bless you.

Anita (aka Nit)
