Liebster Award

Hello Family, Friends, Followers, & Fellow Crafters!!!

My new cutting toy, "Silhouette Cameo" arrived on Friday and I couldn't wait to play.  I've used one a few times before, so I had the basics covered.  I dived in as soon as the family settled into our Friday relaxation mode.  I worked on a project for my daughter's after school mentoring program, them I jumped over to Scraps of Color, to participate in the "Friday Night Challenge".  It was hard keeping up with the challenges, but I also wasn't prepared.  Here are my two entries with my new toy:

Challenge 1:  create Mother's Day cards using, (1) stamped or diecut sentiment, (2) A border punch, (3) 1 pc of cardstock, (4) 2 pcs of pattern paper, and (5) 1 additional embellishment.

Challenge 3:  Your choice, create whatever you like a card, ATC, bookmark, LO, altered item, etc

To finish off the weekend, I got a surprise email from Wrinkle Free Diva, one of my sister-friends I met on the Cricut Messageboards.  She recognized my blog with the Liebster Award! That was a sweet surprise, especially since I've been finding it hard to keep my blog updated as I did before changing it's name. 

I want to say, thank you to Wrinkle Free Diva over at Still Young and Croppin!  Here are the details about the award:
