Today is the first day...

Well today I stopped smoking! I went and bought the patch...had my last smoke and slapped that patch on my arm! I don't know why but just in the past few weeks, I just don't want to smoke anymore. I have wanted to so many times before but only went a day or so and broke down. This time...I WILL QUITE! I put away all the ashtrays, lighters, and cleaned my house. I want to be healthy for my kids and live long enough to see my grandkids!! I don't want to smell like a cig any more. I don't want to be attached always making sure I have my smokes with me. I thought about it and I have been smoking for 25 years! I know this will be the hardest thing to get through and I am scared. I am worried that I won't be able to do it. It's been sooo long that I don't remember how it was to NOT smoke. For all of you reading this, I would love some support. Well it's been 1 day down and the rest of my long life to go!

My Daughter is starting a new chapter in her life!

My DD is 20...will be 21 in July and she is moving into her own place!!! I am sooo excited for her but sad at the same time. I want to hold onto her for ever! But I am so very proud of her! She has been working really hard for this and I think she is ready! We go and sign the lease tomorrow! So tonight we are SHOPPING!!! Ikea will be our first stop! You all know I will be taking a TON of pictures so I will update tomorrow sometime on her new stuff!

Happy Friday!

This is a card I made for one of my husbands co-workers. Her grandmother is turning 75 and wanted a special card for her.

My Valentine Cards

This is my first attempt at making a "Waterfall" card. Each heart has a word on reads:

1st heart Will

2nd heart You

3rd heart Be
4th heart My
Then you pull the tab on the bottom in it reads: Valentine

I used the sewing maching on this one...I am always afraid that I am going to break the needle...LOL

This card was so much fun to make!!

This was another fun card to make. I cut the flowers out with my Cricut and then used my fingernails to curl the edges.

I made the background paper myself. I used a big background stamp and heat empossed it. I also used a embossing marker for the inside of the flowers.

This card was a challenge from another website I am on and decided to make it into a valentines cards!

A Special Thanks!

I want to send a special thanks to my friend Michelle for helping me with my blog...I wasn't sure how to do all this...Thanks Michelle!!!
