Imagine Nation Monday ~ Episode 178

Good Morning & welcome to another Imagine Nation Monday! For today's card, I decided to only use the pattern paper feature & I did the rest w/my Gypsy Girl & my regular cricut! You can see in the video how I came up w/it!;)
Here is my card! Of course, I just HAD to add some "Stardust" stickles to the cloud & I added some as well to the 3 stars on my sentiment! I embossed the sentiment "twinkle twinkle little start" using white embossing powder! I just LOVE how my stamps emboss & it has a LOT to do w/the quality of the stamp! I am VERY fortunate & not to mention LUCKY that I have the BEST manufacture available today!;) I just finished it off by adding black stitching around the edges of my card! Aren't those baby sentiments SOOO CUTE? I just LOVE this newest release of mine called "All Star Baby"This baby set has some SUPER DUPER cute sentiments that you will love!;) If you don't own those "Wide Eyed Kids" face stamps, then you sure are missing out my friends! I used the 1/8" size but these faces are also available in the assortment sizes as well! You can see those HERE! This is the CUTEST face set EVER!!! DEFINITELY, another one of my FAVS!;)

I Love You & a Sneaky Peek:)

Happy Sunday night everyone! I am SOOO VERY behind on EVERYTHING!!! I STILL haven't attacked all my emails yet:(  This weekend I literally just hung out, watched movies. I didn't even turn on my computer & not to mention, the weather was HORRIBLE this weekend. Due to our nasty weather, the boys opening ceremonies & games were cancelled! I am so happy that my parents live around the corner from us because we still did our weekly Saturday night dinner w/them & we ALWAYS have a GREAT time! I have to say that I seriously have the BEST parents EVER! They are ALWAY ALWAYS there for me in a "Heartbeat" when I need them or "Just Because"! I feel truly blessed! I hope all of you enjoyed your weekend:)
Okay, onto my card! Can I just say that this month's release of new stamps are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!! Especially this set here! I created a banner stamp image & it has 11 sentiments that fit perfectly in that adorable banner!;) I wanted to design an Anniversary/wedding/love set that you don't see out there today! I wanted it to have a unique yet edgy look to it & I just LOVE how it turned out! Now it's no secret on how much I just LOVE my vampire shows & that had a huge influence on this set as well! This new set that will be releasing this Tuesday is called "My One & Only"! I dedicate this stamp set to my hubby, for obvious reasons;) If you have the "Immortal Love" paper stack from DCWV, then you are in luck! In my opinion, I think this stamp set goes along PERFECTLY w/that paper stack! I used that stack for my card & that "rose" I actually got from a tutorial from Erin w/DCWV herself! Of course, mine isn't as beautiful as hers is, but it was my very first one & I think it's "passable"! lol..... You see a video of the tutorial for these paper flowers HERE.

I hope you like my card today my sweet friends! ALSO, WOW, I can't believe how many cards my hubby is getting!! All of you are TOTALLY making him one HAPPY man!;) I will see you back here soon! Don't forget on Tuesday I will be having a ustream releasing 4 new stamp sets along w/a "Surprise"!!!;) Have a GREAT night everyone & huge XOXOXO's to ALL of YOU!;)

Latest on my Hubby! & Picture of my Sis!

First of all, I want to explain the pictures of my sis!!! I had a "Last Minute" ustream tonight & I showed a picture of sister from highschool & she wasn't happy about that particularly one that I showed! LOL...... Well, I thought it was a PRETTY pic, but she didn't think so!;) So I promised that I would show everyone an updated one of  her! Once again, I FAILED to record the ustream (sorry) :( 
Now, onto my hubby, today we did find out that he has NO aneurysm "THANK GOD"!!!!! So being that he is still fatigued & still hasn't quite had his appetite back 100%, I still need answers! So, they did another chest xray, they want to see his heart again & they also took an abdomen xray as well! I got a copy of ALL the blood work & every test that was taken on him & I am having someone else look into it more "Thoroughly" for me! Basically, that was it, but I did LOVE the Dr. we saw today because she actually sat there & completely answered EVERY single question I had for her & then some! She was GOOD! That was it! I just feel a whole weight lifted off my shoulders because when they originally said he had an aneurysm, they described it as being so big that it could burst anytime:( So you can understand the relief I had just knowing this!;) Like I said before & I'll say it again, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH EVERYONE for being here for me! I didn't mean to get all emotionally tonight on my ustream, I tried my hardest NOT to, but I couldn't help it:( I still can't believe how much support I am getting from ALL of you & I still have to tackle  the 3200 emails I have gotten from SOOO many of you! So THANK YOU & my Hubby THANKS you from the bottom of our hearts:) Well, I better take myself to bed now! Tomorrow is my boys opening day ceremonies for baseball AND they are having their very 1st game! I am SOO EXCITED about that! & I know they are too!!! ;) Have a GREAT night everyone & don't forget, I will have another ustream Tuesday night! I wasn't going to do a stamp release for this month, but my hubby made me! he still wants me to have one! I'm glad he convinced me to because not only am I releasing 4 new sets, I have a SURPRISE FOR YA! I can't wait!;)  I will see ya back here soon! BIG XOXOXOXO's to ALL Of you!;) Luv Ya!

My sister can have ANY color hair she wants & still be beautiful!;)

last minute ustream tonight in 10 minutes!

If you would like to join Nikki & I, we will ustreaming in 10 minutes! I will update you on my hubby as well! Here is the link for it!  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/my-creative-time

Throwback Thursday Challenge & My Design Team!

Happy St. Patty's Day everyone! This is a bittersweet day for us because, we are on pins & needles & have to wait ONE MORE day to hear my hubby's results! Someone asked me how could I have the strength to be making cards at a time like this? Well, to be honest w/you, this is the only thing that is really keeping me going! During the day, I am distracted by the boys & my hubby, but when they go to sleep, that's when I constantly start thinking about everything all over again:( So crafting seriously is my Therapy at the moment!
 As soon as everyone wakes up, I am going to shop for my cornbeef & cabbage and some mint chip ice cream! I always make us milkshakes w/that every year for St. Patty's day! (My Favorite!)

Okay, welcome to another throwback Thursday challenge w/my FABULOUS design team! Here are the details for this challenge:

That ADORABLE face on my worm is from Peachy Keen's Large "Critter Faces" set! Did I forget about that Super Perfect Teacher stamp?? Yep, that is from my stamp set called "My Teacher Rocks"! I colored it in to make it look like it's on a post-it note & I also used red stickles for that tiny cute apple!;) Oh, I also embossed the apple using the "Book Print" Impression Plate from Papertrey Ink!
Here is Miss Glora's super cute card also using "My Teacher Rocks" stamp set!
Here is Miss Nikki's Manly Man card using "You're My Best Buddy" stamp set!
