Just got a call

From my sister this morning to tell me that one of our friends, Becky Eliot, got killed last night by a drunk driver. She is leaving 3 kids behind 1 boy and 2 girls. Her children are cousins of mine. My daughter is the same age as her middle daughter and her youngest is around the same age as my youngest. Her middle daughter and my daughter where in the same grade and always in the same class until we moved to West Virgina. She was younger then me (this will be my 7th anniversary of turning 30 this year) so sad that she had to leave us at such an early age due to a drunk driver.

Becky was one of the sweetest people I knew and she will be missed dearly. It was always nice to see her when I went to pick up mart (gas station at Karnak Y, in southern IL) she always had a smile on her face and I don't think I ever seen her mad at anyone or even say anything bad about anyone.

Please say a prayer for her family that she so suddenly left behind.

Becky you will be so dearly missed by your family and friends. We love you and will miss you dear friend of mine.

My Son

Gave the card I made away before I could take a picture of it to post. So I have to make another one but you know it won't be the same. I love my son to pieces but he thinks that every card I make is his and he can do anything he wants to with it. Sometimes I don't have time to do anything with them, he over runs my cards. I am so glad he likes them but still I wish he would leave them alone and make is own, I even make extra cuts and stamp extra stuff for him that way he can make a card himself but 90% of the time he won't make one he has to have mine, he is just toooooo funny. 6 yrs old and so full of himself it isn't funny. Oh well I will just have to make my cards when he isn't here and hide them when he is, LOL.

Got some new Cartridges

for my cricut yesterday. Stretch your Imagination and Home Accents. A total of 16 cartridges so far. Can't wait to use them. It seems like I got more font cartridges then anything else. So I have decided to stop buying cartridges with fonts, unless they have shapes as well on there as well and it is something that I want really bad enough, lol. I know there are people out there that have more then what I have, but I am very picky with what I get and I have to see the cart. in action before I decide to get that one cartridge, so it is mainly old hat for others. I have gotten a few that I never seen in action before but I did not pick them out, Danny, my other half picked them out saying that I need that one. Which he is a sweetheart for always buying me what I want.

Enough rattling for now going to go play with my carts. LOL

Mother's Day Cards

I have been working on some Mother's Cards this weekend. Nothing fancy but everyone that I gave them to loved them. I still have one to give and three to make. I like giving Mother's Day cards out to my sisters and other Mothers that I know. I believe in celebrating Mother's Day together with all Mother's. I don't see why just the kids in our lives are the only ones that has to give the cards out.

This one was for our neighbor, my kids love her and her husband such sweet people. She just a beautiful baby girl in Feb. and thought it would be nice to give a Mother's Day card as well.

This one is for my Aunt and she loved this one also.

This one is my own Mother's card and boy did she love it. I really love seeing her face when I make a card for her she is almost like a kid in a candy store.
