More cards I have been working on...

And there are a bunch!

These ones are made with Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses 6x6 paper pad, Hero Arts Christmas and M's Christmas sentiment stamps. The ornaments are $1 stamps from M's, and so is the stocking one.

These, I forgot to take pics before I bagged them, so sorry for the glare! This is Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly 6x6 paper pad. The stamp set is by Inkadinkado that I found at PaperZone.

I can't get enough of the Martha Stewart spider web border punch, love it!

I used the DCWV La Creme 4x6 paper pad for these, which just scream 'wedding' to me!

These backgrounds are done with this Hero Arts stamp, love it and use it all the time! I used a Fiskars and a Martha Stewart border punches, the sentiments are $1 M's stamps, and the rest is scraps.

These backgrounds are done with Tim Holtz stamps, love them! I borrowed these and want them! Thanks Mal and Renee ;)

And the mess I left behind after all this paper madness....

Aaron's first day of 3rd Grade!

We went otside to wait for the bus at about 8:10. The bus comes right to our house, and they said 8:12...

Every year we have taken a picture by the mailbox on the first and last day of school.

I thought this picture with his shadow was pretty cool :)

Getting goofy and bored because the bus was late...

Isn't he so handsome??

"Is the bus here yet, Mom??"

More handsomeness..

It finally got there at 8:43!

My Christmas cards this year!

I made a batch of 5 of the same kind, from this VIDEO on the Christmas with the Cricut blog!

I used Heidi Grace papers and cut the card base slightly smaller, 4 x 11, instead of 4 1/4 x 11, so I could get 3 on a 12x12 sheet. I used the Christmas Cheer cart and cut the snowflake at 3 1/2 inches. The sentiment stamps are Hero Arts, and the snowflake stamps are Inkadinkado.

This one I made from scraps from the other cards, and it is just lying on the background snowflake paper. This tree is also cut from the Christmas Cheer cart, at 6 inches.

Family haircut day...

My guys were super shaggy today so I had to cut some hair in the kitchen, which I only do if I HAVE to! I was in the middle of cutting Kasoma's hair, Adrian asked me if she could have one too.

She just turned 5 about 2 weeks ago and I have never snipped a single hair on her head! After I was done with Kasoma, I cut Aaron's hair too since school starts the day after tomorrow. She asked again if she could have a haircut. Well, not really, she said "I'm getting a haircut too!!" I didn't really plan on it, but I gave her a little-bitty trim :) I didn't want to cut her baby curls off quite yet!

So here she is before...

Snip, snip!

More Halloween cards

These were fun!! I got some new goodies from Michael's yesterday, and shut myself away for a few hours this morning, ahhhh....

So all these papers except for the black cardstock were from a 4x6 stack from Michael's, called Recollections, sorry I can't find a pic of it anywhere. It says 'distributed by Michael's' on the back, which I have seen on a few other things I have bought recently. I also got the Martha Stewart spider web border and corner punches, though I tried mightily to resist!! All the scallop ovals and rectangles are cut using my Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug, except for one which I used a punch set from Marvy. The bling is misc from the Target $1 spot. Oh, and I also went a little crazy with Stickles :) All the stamping was done with Jet Black Staz-On ink.

This stamp set is by Autumn Leaves and I have had it for several years.

I showed such restraint at my LSS and ony bought FOUR pieces of paper, can you believe it?? I got this spider one, another Halloween one and two Christmas ones which I will share later... Thhis also has a bat border punch I got on clearance at M's!

This mummy is a M's wooden $1 stamp and the sentiment is from here...

Another $1 wooden stamp

That Autumn Leaves set again...

More $1 wooden stamps...

Autumn Leaves again..

The spider is from that Inkadinkado set..

The sentiment is another $1 wooden stamp...
