MERRY CHRISTMAS...and a Thank You gift.

Hi all! I hope you are enjoying your day with family and friends! We have had a wonderful Christmas, and the kids all loved their homemade gifts we made for them! I will try to grab some pics to post later in the week, if I get the chance before they take them home!
This was a free week over at THE CUTTING CAFE for our DT posts, so I have made a Thank You gift for one of the girls I work with...she surprised me with a box of homemade goodies for my family...YUMMY!! She is a great baker-I haven't figured out where she finds the time!
I have made a similar card folder here, but like I how I changed it up just a bit, and made different cards for inside.
I have used THE GREETING CARD FOLDER file from THE CUTTING CAFE. I just love how easy it is to make, and decorating it is so fun!! What a great way to send a few cards off to someone to use throughout the year! (it will hold 6 regular cards and 6 envelopes or approx. 4 embellished cards....Also instead of filling with Handmade Cards, you can put Envelopes on one side and a Note Pad on the other side)
That gorgeous little butterfly on the top photo, is a homemade goodie sent to me by Holly Young--they are so amazing! Thank You again, Holly!

Well, this is my last post for THE CUTTING CAFE for this time around, I will miss it--and You, Regina...Thank You, for the fun and the super files you have shared while I have been on the DT!!
Bye for now~

From our home to yours...with The Cutting Cafe.

HI to you all!
I wanted to share this card, along with where to get this fun file today.
The file is from THE  CUTTING CAFE and is called: Front Door Shaped Card Set--how perfect is this for a fun Welcome Home, Congrats on your new home....and yep...it has lots of sentiments that come with it! It also has lots of options to do your door just like you want--ribbons, wreaths, a topiary...you name it!
You can check out more inspiration with this file HERE later today.
Hope you like my card today, and thanks for stopping by. My inspection for my daycare is tomorrow...then I hope to officially be able to advertise, and start up soon!! Did I share the name with you all that I picked out?
Little Sprouts Daycare....cute, huh?!!
Bye for now...

The Cutting Cafe's Bingo set

Hello fella bloggers!
Hope you are all doing great today-I feel like I am getting farther and farther behind-sound familiar? Well, before we know it, the holidays will be over, and then we will miss all the hustle and bustle!
Today I would like to share a card I  have made as a Thank You for the family of one of the ladies in the AFC home. I have used a file from THE CUTTING CAFE: called WINTER BINGO CARD PRINTABLE SET. This set comes with two different size Bingo cards, and lots of extra images, and sentiments along with it (like the snowflake and snowman). What a fun, & easy way to whip up a wonderful card in just minutes!!
Well, I am off to get busy on Daycare things...Have a great day-and Thanks for stopping by to say HI!

Squigglefly's new Challenge~use traditional Christmas colors: Red & Green: and NEWS!!

HI! I have a new challenge to share with you today from the Squigglefly Challenge Blog! Use traditional Christmas colors~Red & Green. I also have some very exciting news to share with you!
First I will share my card for the challenge with you, I have used one of the new Squigglefly  images: Holiday Lamp Post by artist Lynne Stansbery.
 This image was perfect for me, as I was making a Thank You for the Garden Club, who made a couple Wreaths for the ladies at the AFC home I currently work for. I colored up the wreath and cut it out, and popped it up on the image, to add some dimension to it~I love how it came out!
Go on over and check out the blog and join us --if you use a Squigglefly image on your entry (and there are several freebies on the Squigglefly site), you have the chance to win a free image!

Now for my exciting news-I will be leaving the AFC home i have been working at, I will truly miss some of the ladies there, but I will still get to go see them, as I will be stopping by ever now and again, to do some cards and crafts with them!
 But the big news is: I am opening back up my daycare!! It will allow me to be home for my Emily, and spend much more time with my family than the midnight shift at the AFC home!! My daughter Chelsie (who just had the Halloween baby: Parker) will be doing the daycare with me, so I will also get to see her and my grandson nearly every day too! I am so EXCITED! (it should also give me more time in the evening to visit all your lovely blogs and do a bit more crafting than I have got to do in the last 6 months as well!) Whoohoo!!
Thanks for stopping by today,
