Floral Birthday Card and Peppa Pig

Hello, I hope you all are doing well. 

I'm so glad you could stop by. Does anyone else think that this month is flying by? Its almost September.

Wanted to let you know that I may be having my surgery soon. The exact date hasn't been set yet, so If I don't post for awhile, you will know why. Would love for you all to say a prayer for me. 

The last surgery I had, I had to stay in a Nursing Home for a month and a half for rehabilitation. So not sure if I will have to this time or not. 

So on to the cards that I have to share with you. The first one is for a friend. They are having her a surprise Birthday Party!

Decided not to add a sentiment to the front of the card. Just couldn't cover up that pretty flower. This card came together super quick, and I love how it turned out!

Now on to my other two cards. I have two great nephews, one is turning three, and one is turning four. Since their birthdays are so close, they are having them together and having a Peppa Pig themed party. So cute!

I found a few Images on google and added them to Design Space on my Cricut, and also downloaded the Peppa Pig font. I used the flatten feature and printed them on my printer, and then the cricut cut them out. (I love my Cricut machines!)

So I decided to make them where they can color them their selves! Thought they would have fun doing It. I even got them some new crayons with their other gifts.

    I enjoyed making all three cards. Loved learning how to use the flatten feature on my Cricut. I haven't tried vinyl yet but I have been getting some things to add vinyl to. Just so many things you can create with the Cricut. 

   Anyway, that is all from me today. Will be heading to Church soon and then later today I will be going to the Birthday parties. It's also a pitch in dinner. So right after Church I will be making a big dish of corn casserole. Yum!!!
 I know that my sister Christy and my niece Tiffany hate It. So I guess that will just leave a little extra for me. Ha!  

 Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks again for stopping by!

Jars of Love Card

 Hello Crafters! Glad you could stop by. We are now In the month of August. School will be starting here on Monday. YIKES! 

My grandkids will miss staying up late, and sleeping in every morning. I'm going to miss it too. My grandaughter is starting seventh grade, and my grandson is starting eighth grade! So hard to believe!

 Thought I would share a card I made using the stamp set (Jars of Love) from Stampin' Up. This is only my second time using this set. I used the same colors as the last one, I just used a different sentiment. 

The sentiment "For You" is from the Stampin' Up Stamp Set called "Chalk Talk". I think the doily really adds a lot to this card!

I really love this stamp set. I don't know why I haven't used it more! Next time, I will be using different colors; but I do love the flowers in Pacific Point, Calypso Coral, and Lavender Lace. 

We went to my daughters last night for supper, and had potato soup. It was delicious as always, and for dessert, we had Apple pie. 

After supper, I helped make some icing flowers for the cake she had baked. She is a great baker!

So, thought I would share a picture of the cake after she decorated it. Turned out very pretty!

Isn't It sweet! I think it is. Hoping they bring me a piece today. Well, maybe two since it's half chocolate and half white. Gotta try both right?

Well, that's it for me today. Need to get in the kitchen and start preparing for supper tonight. Going to be cooking up a lot of vegetables tonight that I got from the Amish up the road. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and God Bless!
