My Little Farmer

We went to a local pumpkin farm last week and Timmy couldn't stop watching the combine across the street. I found this cute DCWV paper at my local scrapbook store and knew it would be perfect. Cricut cuts from Graphically Speaking and Simply Sweet.

Happy Birthday

My husband is a huge Bengal fan. And today is his birthday so I made up this card from Sports Mania and Lyrical Letters. LL has "Happy B-day" so I inserted the "engal" for his fave team. Sports Mania had the cool helmet frame which I added stripes and the "day".

50th Anniversary Card

It's my parents' 50th Anniversary this year so what better than to use some sparkle on it. Glitter ribbon, shiny gold card stock and cuts from the Sweetheart cartridge. I used the same paper as I used to make their invitations(posting those later).

Craft time(SPCC #18)

With no soccer games or practices tonight because of the beautiful rainy weather, I decided to finish my fall bird house. Didn't turn out too bad and was really fun. All items from Michael's crafts wooden birdhouse, nutmeg paint and Recollections Autumn paper and accessories.


I know to some of you that have remodeled a kitchen, going without one of your appliances probably wasn't such a big deal. Kudos to you. But to me, being without my cooktop for almost 9 weeks was to much. I craved good old spaghetti. And the kids wanted cheesy ramen. We didn't even remodel our kitchen. We had a short in the cooktop that kept blowing the main breaker so we had it disconnected until we could get it fixed or replaced. After 4 weeks of looking for a replacement, we figured a replacement for it was over $1,000. Not in the budget this year. So while it was not working we thought let's just fix that crack in the island countertop also. That part only took two weeks. Three from the first to call to the install. Then a week plus to get the cooktop back in and working. Lots of missed spaghetti. This was Tuesday. Yumm.
