The Sky's the Limit !!!

 Hello, Glad you could stop by. I just had to share with you my excitement.

 I had entered a Giveaway hosted by Shelley, Her blog is Shelley Bean. She had a giveaway celebrating her Birthday.

I thought how sweet of her to have a giveaway for her Birthday.
She was giving away the Stampin Up Stamp Set called The Sky's the limit and with It she was also including a finished card and Card Kits to make three other cards.

 Only a few days before entering the giveaway, I had been talking to my sister. She was telling me how she had gotten this Stamp Set and I told her that I had really wanted to get It and that I was kind of jealous of her.

 I had put on hold making any crafty purchases for the last several months because I was having health Issues and was waiting to see If I had colon cancer. I recently got the results back that It wasn't cancer. Praise God!!! I still have some problems and may have to have surgery but at least it's not cancer.

 Anyway, I won her Birthday Giveaway and I was so shocked and for me to think that It was to late to get the stamp set because you could only get It for a limited time and then to end up winning It.  Well I got a little emotional.

 I received It In the mail today and not only did she send the Stamp Set, Card and Kits to make three other cards. She also sent four envelopes and some of the designer series paper.

 How Sweet and kind of her. I just Love It and can't wait to play
with It.

I really enjoy Shelley's Blog. Love seeing her creations. If you would like to check out her blog here is a link.


 Again, Glad you could stop by. Have a Happy Crafty Day!

Valentine Hugs!

 Hello and Happy Valentines Day to You. So glad that you could stop by.
 Hope you are getting to spend time with the ones that you Love today. 
To me Valentines Day is more than just for Spouses and people who are dating.  It's a day to enjoy all the one's you love and for remembering your loved ones that have past on.

 I had plans to make my Grand Children Valentine Cards and was hoping to get time to make my Mom one as well. But between being in pain with some health Issues and having a severe cold and work. It just didn't happen.

 But I did help my little Grand Daughter make her Valentine Box for School. So thought I would share It with you all.

 She Loved how It turned out. Her favorite animal Is the Koala Bear. So we thought It would be fun to use this cutie from the Create a Critter 2 Cartridge.
We started with a large size Pop Tart Box. Covered in white cardstock.
Other Cartridges used-
Create a Critter 2 also used for the word HUGS
Other hearts- Cricut Craft Room Basics
Red Scallop Rectangle- Storybook Cartridge
Also used-
Red Glitter paper for the heart and Bow.
Dots Embossing Folder from Sizzix
Valentine Stamps from Michael's
Heart Border Punch
Pink and White Baker's Twine.

Well I better go. Gotta get ready for work. Again Happy Valentine's Day to you all. (Remember to let your Loved one's know that you Love them.)
Would Love for you to stop by again sometime. Happy Crafting!
