Happy Hoops!

Happy Saturday to everyone!
AH, so glad the weekend is finally here!
Today I'm sharing a card my youngest son asked me to make 
for one of his friends.
After getting the basic info out of him,
like, "What does he like?"
"What team?"
Mom went to work.
Digging through my stamp collection,
I couldn't quiet find what I wanted,
but remembering I had a sports Cricut cartridge,
Sports Mania, saved the day!

 Yes, of corse, the colors had to be blue for
the University of Kentucky!
After I cut the hoop I added a piece of clear plastic
 (piece of old packaging)
 to the back to make it look a bit more real.
My son was a happy customer and with
"WOW, Cool Mom and Thanks"
he went to his party!
And I'm a happy Mom, glad to be of service!!!

Look what joined my Snowdrops this week...
... sweet little purple Irises!
One by one, blooms and colors are slowly returning to our yard,
it feels so good  and I'm so ready for the gloomy days of winter to be OVER!

Enjoy your weekend everyone
and thanks for stopping in!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day 
to all my 
wonderful blog friends!
Hope your day is filled with lots of love
I will spread a little chocolate love on 
Valentines Day, 
with some gift bags,
 to some special friends and co-workers!

Here they are all lined up and ready to get filled with...
 ... all kinds of chocolaty goodness!
 The sweet little girl on the tag is from Stampin'Up's
"Greeting Card Kids" stamp set.
 Sentiment from Stampin'Up's "You are Loved" set
and the hearts are punched with Martha Stewart
heart punches.
The silhouette was cut with the cricut
"A Child's Year" cartridge.

 One more line up before they got packed up for...
... there special delivery!

And another special delivery, this one from mother nature.
I been keeping my eyes peeled for them finally to appear.
And last Thursday there they were!
My first Snowdrops! 
The first blooms of the year,
I truly hope this means spring is right around the corner.

Thank you so much for stopping in!
Happy Valentines Day to you all!

The Key to my Heart!

Happy Sunday everyone!
WOW, what a roller-coaster week!
Mother nature really had some wild weather
 in store for us this past week.
From the upper 60's one day to Tornado warnings 
and scrambling for cover to single digits and SNOW!
But I have to admit the white stuff looks pretty 
and beats the tornado weather any day!
After living in Kentucky for over 15 years now,
I just can't get used to the wild and scary weather around here!
NO Tornados were I come from!!!
One good thing, the white stuff triggered a 
no school, no work
and a blissful day in my stamp-room!

This Valentines Day door hanging
I call
"The Key To My Heart"
is made out of odds and ends I had laying around.
 The hearts are cut with my Cricut and 
the "Victorian Romance" cartridge.

Scraps and a leftover Cupid from an old project.
The stamp is a Michaels dollar stamp.
Love the dollar bins at Michaels, 
I always find something in them!

Looks like I have to go back to work tomorrow,
no snow in the forecast,
it was nice as long as it lasted!

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
