Cards for soldiers Christmas.

Some of these cards were made using supplies from a card kit swap that I participated in on the Cricut MB last year. in each kit was a 6x6 Patterned paper, 6x6 plain card stock, stamped image, ribbon and some small embellishments. then the design was up to us. it was a fun swap.
Here are my cards for soldiers for Christmas I made 30 cards some were duplicates some not.

I Can truly say last week was one of those life moments that you will never forget. Last Thursday we got to go down and See Our Son Graduate from Baic Combat training for the Army National gaurd. After 22 weeks of training to see him was an amazing experience. MY son who went away a Boy of 18 . Now is changed so much he has grown Physically and Mentally and we could not be any prouder of Him.
We love you PFC Eisenhower you Made it through.

Poodle Mania

Poodle Mania
here Is what has been keeping me busy for the last couple of weeks. I had to make 3 adult poodle skirts and 3 child. I didn't like the poodle that came with the pattern so cut a paper pattern with My paper pups cartridge on my Cricut machine. I think this poodle is so much cuter.
but Believe me I am so grateful they are done now. Because of course my sewing machine decides to mess up right near the end. But It made it through.
