Exciting News... and a card!!

Hello all my crafty friends!!   Today I am sooooo excited to share some news with you.  I have been busting at the seams trying to hold this in!!  Are you ready?????


I still can not believe that Joy chose me to be on her  team.  I am so honored.  I have been following her ever since I first got my Cricut a couple of years ago.  She is super talented and such a hoot! If you have never visited Joy's Life.com, you have got to stop by. Joy has awesome stamps, very informative (and entertaining) craft tutorials, plus she is a vinyl "guru".

I just have to say, I am really looking forward to this new adventure. I hope you will pop over and visit me and the other fabulous DT members.  :)

So in honor of the amazing opporunity.... I have made a card for Joy.  I wanted to let her know how thankful I am to be a part of her team.  THANK YOU JOY!!!!

Sentiment Stamp:  JOY'S LIFE - Lots of Pun stamp set
Misc: button, twine, gelly roll pen

Thanks for stopping by today! As always, I love and appreciate your comments. :) Have a CRAFTY DAY!! Lori

It's Your Birthday! Have a ball!

Hello my crafty friends!  I am so happy that I finally have the time to take pictures and actually post projects that I have done.  It was soooo crazy over the holidays, that I never had time to take pictures of any of the cards or projects I made. :(   I am truly hoping that 2012 will be "the year of organizing". Not only do I need to organize my craftroom, but I REALLY need to organize my life in general! :)  A time management course would be very helpful!  I feel I always have sooo many things to do and not enough time.  But anyways... You are not here to listen to my woes. LOL!!

Today I am sharing a card I made for my nephew  who is turning 9 on Friday.  I will be entering this card in a few different challenges.  First is My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday (sports theme), then Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #93 (Man Time), Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #45  and also Birthday Sundaes Challenge #38.

Sports Mania
Peachy Keen Everyday Character Faces
Cuttlebug folders
Action Wobble (placed behind the baseball)

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you liked my card today!
Have a crafty day!
