Get Well Card

Dave's wonderful 95 year old grandmother "Gigi" took a bad fall last month. She hit her head and now she has to live in a nursing home. She is doing much better, Thank God! I wanted to cheer her up so I sent this card with a ton of photos of the boys.
This card was super simple to make. Two different colors of cardstock, simple ribbon...tied using my Bow Easy. I printed Get Well Soon on the computer and popped it up and added a brad...see, super easy.

Anniversary Card

This year my parents celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary. What good role models I have. I wanted to do something special for them and I saw this idea in an issue of Scrapbooks Etc. Magazine. I had purchased the paper at the Convention in Arlington in June for our big RV trip that we took. When I saw this car, I knew the paper was perfect. Happy Anniversary was cut out of Beyond Birthdays cartridge at 1 1/2". My parents were thrilled with this card.

Football Vinyl Water Jug and Cooler

Today is the first day of football in our crazy obsessed football Texas town. Riley is on a new team this year and I wanted to make it fun for him. We purchased the water jug and cooler in his new team colors and I knew from the moment I saw them I would vinyl them.

This is my second time using vinyl and the Cricut. This time was much easier than the first...seeing how I did it 2 years ago and I did not like working with it. I used Plantin Schoolbook and cut the letters out at 1". The # was cut out at 3/4" and the 83 was cut out at 1 1/2". I really love the way this looks. The football was cut out of Sports Mania at 3".

I wanted to put the vinyl on the white of the cooler to make it pop.
