Inspiration!!

Fortunately, I have had both creativity and a little bit of time on my side lately. No more time that usual, but renewed energy, which I am totally crediting to my new diet and workout routine.  I actually can't believe that I have pretty much stuck with it for the past five weeks! Go me!

My niece's birthday card....kind of a joke...she HAD to have a rooster and now he is the entire family's worst nightmare! lol! Used my first Action Wobble on this guy!

I generally intensely dislike photos of myself, so I forced myself to scrap one of me. I used my Unity March KOM. Loved paper piecing the banner and stamping the background branches.

I don't have a lot of photos of mom especially after her stroke and fewer of her smiling.  I wanted to  showcase this for myself, my children and, of course, her. It's been a long road, but, thankfully, she is still with us and doing well. Adore the DCWV paper. Absolutely artistic!



Liam's 5th birthday was this week. He loved Octonauts and there isn't much out there yet as in party supplies, clipart, etc., so I used my Create a Critter Cricut cartridge to make him a birthday card of the character Peso. Apparently, he prefers Kawzii. lol! I used an action wobble on him and later put the card in a 8X8 shadowbox frame, which he enjoys picking up and wobbling to see Peso dance.


This card was made from my March Unity KOM colored with Copics, which I included in my previous haul video.
