Couple Projects With My Cameo

Finally got around to taking some pictures of the projects I've been working on. =D  I've been busy cleaning the house and chasing around kids, this weekend has been just a little crazy.  lol

One of my new adventures is making birthday cards for the nurses to give at Toronto Sick Kids Hospital to give to those little munchkins who have to spend their birthdays at the hospital.  Here are 3 cards I made using the same design with different colours.  I used the cameo to cut everything out. 

I'd love to have more cards to give when I take mine down.  If this is something you'd like to do, please let me know and I'll give you my address to send them to.  You can send 1, 10, or as many as you like.  I won't need envelopes and I'd like to keep it to 2 different sizes:  5" x 5" or 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".



I have a mama who's little one is having a birthday in a few months.  She was having trouble making a card so I asked if I could make them for her.  While waiting on her thread reply, I went ahead and made an example.  They are SO cute!!!! I can't wait to make the real ones soon. hehe

The little gems are from a cell phone decoration I got at the dollar store.  I cut the little gems apart and plopped them where I thought they'd look cute.

It's Almost Here!!!! My Silhouette Cameo =D

I am SOOOOO excited.  My silhouette cameo is waiting at the post office for my hubby to pick up after work.  I can't wait to get it and started cutting some stuff out.  I've been planning all kinds of things with the software and can't contain my excitement.  I reworked my computer area in the main living area so that it's near the printer and laptop.  I'll be sure to share some projects soon. hehe =D

Update:  WHOOOO HOOOOO!!!!! It's here, it was incredibly easy to set up, and I'm working on printing out the 2nd project.  It's a little noisy but not overly bothersome.  I love the way it cuts.  I'm very happy with it. hehe

Happy 5th Going Home Anniversary Ruby!!

Ruby was born with her bottom 2 teeth.  Our first night home I spent with my finger in her mouth helping her to cut them through.  =D

I miss my baby girls bright blue eyes (my other kiddolets have my brown eyes) and super sweet face.

My little sweetpea taking advantage of her sister being at school to play with the fun toys ALL BY HERSELF!!! She was SO happy that day. hehe

It's been 5 years since I said goodbye to my little girl and encouraged her to go home to her Saviour.  One of RooBoo's favourite songs was You Are My Sunshine.  I used to sing it to her most every night before she went to bed as we looked outside at the stars. Ruby was a spunky little girl who liked to get into anything that she could.  She had a vibrant sparkle in her eye and loved to be snuggled.  I really miss my little girl and can't wait until I am called home.  I can't wait to hold her in my arms again and sing to her.

I made this little freebie with her in mind.  I hope you like it. =)
