Sad news

We got the greatest Chritmas gift you could ask for with the Christmas Eve birth of our first Grandchild.
Today we got the very sad news that my Father is dying. He is in the death process. They don't expect he will live to the New Year. We are leaving for Minnesota in a little bit to be with him as he passes. Hopefully we get there in time.

Please keep him an us in your prayers.

It's November!

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween!
Can you believe it's November??

I have to get busy making Christmas cards. I swore when last Christmas came so quickly that I didn't get cards made, that I would get them done this year... we'll see. I am going to do my best!
With our first grandbaby due New Years Day things are going to get crazy! Shelby actually went into pre-term labor on Friday night. They ended up giving her a shot of something to stop it. They were also able to do a test to tell if she would deliver within the next two weeks! Crazy! She will not, thank goodness!

Working on some new cut files to post. I will try to get some up today so check back later.We were in the hospital til 4am Sat. morning an I could not get to sleep once we got home so I am doing allot of napping trying to catch up. If I don't get anything up today I will for sure get something posted tomorrow.

I got an order!

So this past weekend my husband brought home one of these cool little trucks they use at the Cargil jobsite.
They had the company name on the sides with those magnet sheets and they were eating away at the metal.
I asked him if I could vinyl the company name on and he said go for it. Below is the finished product.
The best part is I was asked to do all the site vehicles. Yeah!
Hopefully this is the start of a something wonderful.

WOW! What a surprise this morning!
I'm always excited when the Cricut Chirp comes out but when I opened it this morning and started down the list of highlighted projects I got a major surprise!! At the end of the list was one titled Trick or Treat. Thinking nothing of it, I open it and there are my pumpkins!! I made the Chirp! I never thought that would happen! Thank you Cricut!!

I too was surprised they choose a SCAL project, though I have seen others on there.
I see them posted on the MB all the time.

Trick Or Treat

I used Gore font from http://www.fontspace.com/ and the bat from the cut file I linked to below.
Simple but cute.
Had to keep the pumpkins in the house overnight to warm up enough for the vinyl to stick.

  1. She has got some amazing things! You must check out this blog! Just click on the bold title of this post to get there.

Sick, Sick, Sick

Sorry everyone! I promised to upload some more cut files the other day an I ended up getting sick. Feeling well enough to get this post out quick but not up to being up long enough to load anything. I do have some more that match punches to get uploaded so please keep checking back. I am also going to start selling vinyl in 3 different sizes for those of you looking for smaller cuts. I plan to list 6x12, 12x12 & 12x24 pieces but may also go down to 6x6 becase I know sometimes you just need a very small piece of a color.
I will be lising them in an ebay store and will add the link when I get it all posted on there.
Thanks for your patience.

Support Ribbon with Name

Made a bunch of these for Vicki's friends and family to put on our vehicles to show our support for her. She has been diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer and it is also in the bone. The blue and silver represent all cancers and since she has 2 kinds these are the colors I chose.
