My Birthday Gift!

I received enough money this year to get the Gypsy! Wow this thing is so Assume!! I could have used it this weekend with all the cards that I had to make. I am so excited to use it, I am still trying to learn how to use it and all the feathers it has. Some time back I was thinking about getting the Juke Box but man I am glad that I didn’t this little Gypsy will hold all of my Cartridges in it so I don’t have to keep changed out the cartridges or have to get the Juke Box. If you already have the Cricut or you’re asking Santa to get it skip out on the s software and just get the Gypsy! It’s replaces the software just about I have not learned yet nor know if I can transfer my files over to the Gypsy from the software. Does any one know of some places were I can get some help on how to use this thing? The Website Video’s don’t work as good as YouTube for some reason.

Celebration Weekend Cards!!

I’m a bit behind on posting pictures of my cards and so many other things here are the latest from this weekend. We had Birthdays and Anniversary’s all in one weekend; they are displayed as special days occur.
Ironically I share my birthday with my husband parents; the same day is there anniversary. This is there card that I made for them. I used the Wild Card Cartridge but I had to widen the oval a little for the picture to fit in. Off hand I can’t remember what the cut was for the card and the envelope I do know that they didn’t go together but I made them go.
The Next day on the 22nd is my father in laws birthday. He LOVES Guitars!! So this card was made from several cartridges. The Wild Card and the Ideal Art. I welded them together to make the card and then I altered it with my scissors. His envelop was the one for the House on the Wild Card Cartridge I also altered it with a punch for the trim.

Then on the 23rd is my sister in laws birthday. She LOVES “twilight” the movie. So this card was the best one for being the first gift. I used here several cartridges too on this card. It consisted of Ideal Art, Home Decor, Wild Card, and Platinum School Book.

Sew Crafty Mini Sewing Machine

These little sewing Machines are really neat. My mom found two of them packed away at her house. I have been playing around with them just to see how they work and all. For some reason some one put Bad on the bottom of one but I have been reading the reviews on this item and found that maybe it was just a Human Error to why they may have thought the one was bad. You just have to read the instructions, do not pull or push the paper let the machine do it. The both of them sew perfect, and when it feels like it wants to jump check the tension, or maybe it's because the paper is to tight, so put another layer on the bottom. I have not quite decided what I will do with the other one. Been thinking maybe giving it away for either Member Rewards on Scrappers Delight but I have not quite decided. When the time is right I will know in the meantime I will be enjoying playing with one of these little sewing machines.

There is this group on Scrappers Delight that is called Scavenger Scrapping and what it is, is a group that made for you girls that like to go scavenging throw Antique Store, Yard Sales, Thrift Stores, and Flea Markets. These are some of my finds that I have found within the last year. Just last week I found the 2 stamps and snowflake stickers at the Comfort Antiques Show at one of the stores in their town. I paid 3.00 each for the stamps maybe a little high but I liked them, and the snowflaks were 1.50 and the Bingo card was 3.00 also.

We Are Home Owners!!

So on Sunday we closed on our new / gently used 2007 Jayco 29 BHS RV. Yeah I am so excited about it; I went and purchased a few items to place in the RV that day to make it ours. I even went throw my kitchen looking for things that I could add to it. It was so very nice of the perverse owners to give us with the RV a few things like utensils and plates to get us going. They even left some Toilet Paper, how kind now we know what to get. So here is what it looks like.

Last but no means least after my husband and I last night settled into our old 1950's home I realized I really should thank the sells man that was helping us at the location at Crestview, in Selma. We ended up going throw with an individual that needed to move this RV to pay for some other expenses. So last night while I was doing the Lundy I made this card and tock it to him today. His name was Jake and he was SO SO Helpful and if the deal didn’t go throw with the individual we were going to get a BREAND New RV that would have been smaller from him that is how nice we liked working with him. So I hope that he can put our card up on his desk and show it to his customers because we wrote a very nice letter about what type of person he is and how he did such a helpful job with us, and when we are ready to tread up he will be the one we go see First! So Jake if you happen to see this posting....Thank YOU and we will be seeing you around Crestview when we need parts.
I am so excited we have our first trip planed for 2 weeks from now to Del Rio but my husband just can’t wait we have the bug and we are itching to go some were. Today we went and purchased a generator so that we could go out This weekend instead, my family has about 35 accrues of opened land in Seguin, TX that has a well on it and that’s about all. Since our RV is a Self contained RV then we could just about camp there without any worries. The windmill if I recall needs repair but when I was a little girl with the well filled up I would play in the over flow sprout that made like a shower. It was so much fun then. Memories like this will make my little girls life so much happier. I think it will be so much fun to for Penelope to see the deer, jack rabbits, and Horny Toads. (is that spelled correctly?) Yes we can’t forget about the Snakes and oh my very big spiders out there but it’s defiantly an experience that she will never forget hopefully. Thankfully my aunt and uncle lives across the HWY if anything comes up, she is a retired RN that also RV’s the great US. So we will have some experts not to far away on the first time out in our RV.

Oh Please do leave me Suggestions on Parks and places to go!! We have to go to NY next year around the end of July and start of August. We would LOVE recommendations of places to visit!!

A card for my Neighbor

This card was in a magazine that I scrap lifted from. It was too cute and to me it was the perfect card for my neighbors. The original card said “The Grass Is Always Greener…” The reason why I changed it was because on Sunday when we came home from the pet expo our neighbor was out side BBQ and brought us a plait over. We thought that was so sweet they didn’t have to do that, but it was so good. Inside of my card I put, “from Neighbors like You!”
