This weeks challenge theme for The Greeting Farm is summertime. With today being Memorial Day it marks the beginning of the summer season and a special day to honor all those who gave their lives to save ours. So to them we say Thank you and God Bless.
While most are celebrating with there moms today as it is Mother's Day, there are some who are missing theirs. I'm blessed that my mom is still with me and will hopefully be for a long, long time. She truly is a blessing from God.
A coworker lost her mother-in-law recently and so today I made a card for all of us at work to sign. I wanted to share it with you and also just a simple little message. Don't take for granted the time we have with our loved ones. The bible tells us that our lives are but a vapor. Meaning it passes so quickly. So live in the now. Love and be loved. But, most importantly be prepared for the time your tomorrow may not come. Sorry, for the sad tone here but it is important to me that I get the message out there. If I am not here tomorrow will my loved ones know how I felt? Most importantly, where will I spend my eternity? Am I prepared to meet my God? Think about it...
This Sunday is Mothers's Day and The Greeting Farm challenge this time is to celebrate MOM. Today my family went out to eat together in honor of us moms. It was a great time. I celebrated with my mom, my mother-in-law, my daughter-in-law to be, and her mom. Of course the men were there, but this post is on moms. Here are the cards I made for my mom and my mother-in-law.
That is supposed to be my husband and me. (he he) I love making these pop up cards. They are so fun and easy.
Here are the cards I made for my daughter-in-law to be and her mom.
My grandson painted me this cute birdhouse. Iwas told he was really excited and used lots of pink because he knows I love pink!!!
I would like to wish all the moms out there a very happy Mother's Day!
Today I want to share a card I made over the weekend. The Greeting Farm challenge this week is to make masculine cards. Well, that's a huge challenge for me as I love pink, flowers, and everything girly! I raised two boys and so you would think after 23 years of nothing but guy stuff it would be easy. Not so much ha-ha. I just want to pink everything up! So here is my card. I think I did alright. How about you?
Where I work they have a rewards program. When you do a good job someone inside or outside of the company can go online and submit a thank you. It's called an isaia since I work for Saia. Anyways, for every isaia you get it equals two points. You can turn in your points for merchandise. I used mine for a Canon Selphy photo printer. Love that it was free!!! Here is a photo of it.
So of course I had to test it and here is what I printed.
That's my silly baby at work playing with a coworkers glasses. I decided to make a scrapbook layout to display. Here it is.
Hope you enjoyed my pics. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
The Greeting Farm and one lovely lady collaborated and came up with an awesome stamp. Frappy Anya. She is adorable and I am so addicted to McDonalds caramel frappes so I had to have this stamp. I got her this week and wanted to play with her. TGF's Farm Fresh Friday challenge for the week is using pastel colors. So here is my creation.
I wanted to do a thank you card for my mom. She is one of my biggest supporters, a wonderful friend, and best if all she is an awesome mom. She doesn't care for the word awesome because she says it's over used, but she is AWESOME! I love her. So her is the card I made.
I just love pretty hat Anya. She is one of my favorite stamps from The Greeting Farm. Isn't she so cute!
He there! I'm having a blast here at the weekend retreat just crafting away. Thought share another birthday card I made. I used The Greeting Farm cupcake stamp and die set. I love this set and use it a lot! Hope you enjoy.
Hey awesome people! So today I am so blessed to be spending the evening crafting with my BFF! We are at Hobby House Hill in Bowie, TX for a scrapbook retreat weekend.i love these weekends and I live this place. It is so peaceful, quiet, and adorable! I decided to use this time to make a card for the Greeting Farm challenge. This weeks theme is birthday. So without further ado...here is my card. Hope you enjoy!
Hello! I have another card for the TGF Farm Fresh Friday challenge. This time it was Sweet Treats. I used the double cupcake Anya. I just love her. She reminds me of my BFF because she loves cupcake stuff. Only this one I made as a blonde for another friends birthday. So here's my card. Hope you enjoy!
This past weekend I got to enjoy a trip to Waco with my BFF, my mom, and my aunts. We went for the quilt shop hop. I had a wonderful time. I had crocheted a couple of scarves for my friend so I needed a tag for the bag they were in. I decided to decorate with a Greeting Farm stamp. Of course it had to be used for the challenge! So I cut the tag with my cricut. I added a flower paper layer and my border punch to add a layer. Then I layered on the rose trim and the image Mad Hatter. I think it came out cute. What do you think?
Hey there friends! I'm back with another Greeting Farm challenge card. This time we were to do, yep, you guessed it, red, white, and blue. So I chose to make a simple style card with lots of pattern. Hope you enjoy it!
Today I want to share a card I did for my hubby for Valentine's Day. I know it's still a few weeks away, but the "TGF" challenge this time is "Love is in the Air". So I got out my cute little Valentine set and colored them up to represent my Steviepoo and myself. I had to add the doggy too because she looks like our chihuahua "Katie dog". She's our little girl. (Our little Diva ha-ha). I love this set. I really enjoyed making this card. So here it is.
The farm Fresh Friday challenge this time is called clean and simple. So I decided to use a sympathy card I made for a friend in the passing of her father. I think those cards are so hard yet so important. And you don't want them to be blinded out. So here she is. Just clean and simple.
So today I will be going to a birthday party for my grandson who is turning 4. Thought I would share the card I made. He has recently started liking super heroes. So I used my Teddy Bear Parade cricut cartridge and made a super hero teddy bear. I then came up with the inside sentiment and printed it on cardstock. I can be cheesy (of course someone else may have already thought of the same line) but thought it fitting. So here is my card.
It says "Wishing you a beary super birthday!" Hope you enjoyed my card share.
