Happy Birthday ~Never ending card

Hello and TGIF!  
It felt like Friday all day yesterday so today is just dragging on.  
That and it's been raining all day and that's really weird for our parts.

My niece had a birthday and she turned 10.  I didn't want to do a boring regular fold card so I made her a never-ending.

With all of her favorites of course, Purple, monkeys, flowers....

Well that's it for today. 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Come back again soon.

Stand Ye In Holy Places

Hello! Happy Hump day!

I have another bottle I wanted to share with you today.  I'm so hooked on these bottle lights. 

This one the inspiration came from a church calling that I have.  This years theme is to "Stand ye in Holy Places, and be not moved"

The Vinyl cuts all came from the Silhouette Store.  The little bunch of White berries are from Michael s and then I just used White Toole for the bow. Easy Peasy!

Thanks for taking time to stop by and take a look!  Do you make Bottle lights? If so, I'd love to see them so send me a link. See ya soon!!

My Little "Criminal"


Hello and Happy Saturday!  
Today I'm meeting with the Sister's from my church to craft and I'm super excited.  
But first I wanted to show you a notebook I made for daughter,
 the Yuma High School Criminal.

My daughter is a freshman at Yuma High School.  Back when Yuma High was young like 1920's it caught fire.  The students couldn't meet there so they ended up meeting in the old Territorial prison that was closed down.  Well when other sports teams would come to town to play YHS they would call them criminals because they were in a Jail.  Well the name has stuck with the school ever since.

Besides the fact I attended High School at YHS's rivalry school across town I have grown to like this school too.

So my daughter needed a composition notebook decorated for a class at school and all the kids were required to take one in.  So I made hers undeniably hers.

I love decorating these kinds of books and  I love how this one turned out.  I used my Silhouette Cameo for the logo and name and the background shape cut I believe is from my Cricut.

Well thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Please, come back anytime!

Triple Threat!

Hi! So for those of you who didn't know
So any chance I get to play I jump all over it. 

Our Church plays for fun a couple times a week and has a tournament 1-2 x's a year.  I sprained my ankle pretty bad last year and couldn't play but this year I was ready to go!

It was a 3 man tournament and we wanted to make shirts to match each other and this is what we came up with.

I loved how they turned out!  Our team did pretty well too, we took 4th out of 26 teams and the team that ended up winning we had beat in the first round.  We were super excited.

Thanks for stopping in and taking a look, please come back again anytime!

Happy Birthday Easel Card

Hello!  Don't you love it when 
your daughter comes in and asks you to make a card for her friend who's birthday is coming up.  You ask when she needs it and she needs it right away! What! Seriously?

So this is one of those cards.  I was not thrilled about and I changed it up over and over and kept adding and adding and finally ran out of time.

The Birthday Sentiment I believe is from Stampin Up.

Well my daughters friend loved the card and her mom loved it even more, LOL.  
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, I hope you come back again soon.

Wine Bottle Lights

Hi and Happy Fall, I guess it's fall?  
Its still in the 90's here in AZ and I couldn't believe 
I had my A/C on in the middle of November.

So my latest venture has been turning wine/Alcohol bottles into lights.  They are so much fun and super easy to do.

The first problem I had though with this project is I'm not a drinker, at all.  So who was going to drink all this wine/Alcohol?  Not anyone I knew really so I had to looks else where.

I remembered that every time we go to Olive Garden they always ask if we want a sample of wine.  So that's where I went.  

The manager was super nice and was able on the spot to pick me up 15 bottles.  So in return I told him I would make him a light and to let me know what themed light he would want.  He then told me to come back in a couple days and he would have more bottles, so I did.  My kitchen table was covered in wine bottles, LOL.  I asked him on the second trip what theme he'd decided on and he said that since they were Olive Garden bottles that I should make one for the Olive Garden, so I did.  But I thought it was super nice of him to not take the bottle for himself so I made one for him as well.

Here is the Olive Garden one (plugged in)....

I made the Olive Garden Logo using my Silhouette Cameo.  Bought the grapes from Michael's and wrapped it all up with some raffia I had on hand.

Here is what it looks like when it's not plugged in.....

Ok so the Manager said he liked the 49ers, so I found a logo and worked with it the best I could and came up with this.  It seemed rather plain for me but if I added too much more to it I was afraid it would look too feminine. 

Here it is plugged in....

When I brought the bottles back for him to see what I do with them I couldn't believe how excited they all were.  All the employees were coming over and trying to call dibs on the SF one, LOL.   So needless to say if and when I need more bottles I think I shouldn't have a problem getting some. Thanks Olive Garden!!  And thank you for stopping in and taking a look.  Hope you come back again soon.

Keep Calm and Coach on ~ T-shirt.

OK so I said I would show you the T-Shirt 
that I made for the hubby.  As you've probably read in earlier posts he is a baseball coach.  He's so good at it too.  He coach's a Travel Team that won state last year and he coaches league.
Well it was his birthday this past week and to him it's just another day.  But he does so much for us I tried to make his day special, even though he hates it.  I knew he wouldn't want me to buy him anything so I had to get creative. (Not hard, he he)
You know how the "Keep Calm and ..."  have been all the rage?  Well I kept with it.
I saw a shirt that had a baseball on it and it said "Keep Calm and Play on"  Well he doesn't play anymore, but he does coach!! The light bulb came on, lol.  "Keep Calm and Coach on"  It was perfect!!  I all ready had the White iron on Vinyl and a plain black T-shirt.

He seemed to like it.  He opened it and put it on then wore it to the game that night.  Fun stuff!  I really like the iron on vinyl.  

Well thanks for stopping in to take a look!! Hope you come back again soon!
