Happy Birthday Marshmallow

Hi crafty friends.

Happy Sunday! Can you believe it? The last two days of 2012 are here! I decided to have people over for New year's eve. So today it week be grocery shopping, cleaning, and decoration making! I'm excited, I just hope I can get all I have to do today done!

For today's post, I wanted to share with you one of the quickest coolest boy birthday card Ive ever made. This card seriously took my 7 minutes to put together! The superman was a print and cut from the silhouette store! Best part, it was a superman themed party! Folded some paper, embossed, wrote out my sentiment, added an action wobble, and pesto! All done.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do! My cameo will be working away today. I'll add the pics of my decorations tomorrow, if time permits. If not I will definitely share this week!

Have a great, safe, and amazing start to the new year!

Hi crafty friends!
 
        Hope you all had a great holiday, celebrating close to friends and family.  I can't believe the holiday season came and now  it's over.  It always goes by so quickly.
 
     Today's post is for Cameo Creations. Whaaaa Hoooo!  The challenge is Welcome 2013. For my project I created a banner for my living room. I used holiday papers that I purchased from Pretty Papers Pretty Ribbons. The file was a silhouette file. I just transported the digital papers into the silhouette studio, sent it over to my printer and used the print and cut feature. I finished it off with some ribbon and stickles.
 
Enjoy the banner! I can't wait to see what you will create for this challenge!

Operation Superman Charity Blog Hop

Welcome crafty friends!!

   Welcome today to the Operation Superman Charity Blog Hop hosted by the awesome Sandra 365 Days of Cricut .

Here a brief summary of why we are holding this important hop!

"I am doing this hop for a long time friend of mine. Her sons (7yr old) best friend's dad died suddenly in Walmart
he had a sudden cardiac death Cardiomyopathy right in front of his 4 kids in June. It's so sad. My friend Regina said they were great family friends and everyone used to call him Superman. The kids are 11, 9, 7, and 18 months and the mom doesn't have any family nearby so my friend Regina is taking donations like gifts, etc. I guess the mom is having a hard time with his passing and having to take care of the 4 kids and still celebrate their first Christmas together without the dad. What I would like to try to do is get at least 30-50 gifts and/or cards to send to this family.

Also, if you would like to donate any other items like clothes, toys, gift cards, cash they need those too! The mom is a Stay At Home Mom and she was worried about getting the kids gifts this year.

If you would like to make a cash donation please contact me and I will give you the Paypal information, you can also request that they buy clothes or a toy or other item with the cash and they will get the family a gift from you!

Their names are:
Trayveon is 11, Dayveon is 9, Shaun is 7, and Noel is 18 months and Liz is the mom
*Dad's name was..... Seko"

-Sandra

If you would like to be part of such a generous thing please contact Sandra HERE

Here is the card I created for the family:
