Finally creating

Jonah has a friend's birthday party on Saturday, and I love the kid. So, I made him a card tonight using my Cricut. Jonah bought a Cuttlekids machine yesterday with a coupon for 50% off at Michael's. He used his new toy to create his card.

He used a bunch of his new CK dies. He stamped the Happy Birthday and made his own notes on the card. Basically, all of the critters were singing happy birthday to his friend. :)

Last weekend, we had a party for Jonah and Jared's birthdays and went to play paintball. Yep ... even I played. Jonah's friend was there, and I designed his card around the paintball theme. I used the musket from Paper Dolls and the splats from Dreams Come True. Behind the gun and paint splats, I stamped trees, grass, and a sun. I colored the sky with WWC and an aquapainter. The scene was stamped with a long-retired SU set. I have no idea what the name is.

I also started another Explosion Box for someone for Mother's Day. I haven't added embellishments, but I have the box made. I am using pink and brown as the color combo for this one. The paper came from a kit that I bought at Hobby Lobby on Monday night (for 50% off!!).

Here's the box closed with the top.

Here's the box open. I can't wait to put some pictures and embellies on this one. :)

More coming on Saturday (or maybe tomorrow if I get a chance!).

Until then, sleep well, dream big, laugh often, smile much, pray incessantly, and have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!


  1. Jonah, I love your CuttleKids card! Great job, Bud!
