Hi Everyone!  It's been soooooo busy around our house the past two weeks.  I went to Baltimore for a conference leaving my husband, son, and dog here to fend for themselves.  Now if that doesn't strike fear in your heart, you're a better woman than me!!  Well, I came home on Friday to lots of hugs and thirty minutes after getting home, Jacob was running a fever of 101.5.  He came down with a stomach virus that lasted for three days - OMWOOOORRRDDD!!!!  Then on Sunday, I had to take Mom to the Emergency Room.  Yes, she has been sick too!!!  She is on the mend now, thank goodness!!!  Anyway, it was an eventful weekend!

So I said all that to say that I haven't had time to craft and today is my husband's birthday.  So I borrowed the Creative Cards cartridge from Mom and have to say, LOVE IT!!!!!!!  It made making a card so fast and so easy.  I didn't have time to try and figure out what to make the card look like and by using this cartridge all I had to do is pick the paper and push the buttons! 

Using DCWV Citrus paper, I cut the card and all the elements of the card at 7".  One problem with doing that size which I found out after the card was made is you can't cut the envelope at that size.  So I guess hubby will get a card without an envelope unless I find one that the card will fit in - keep your fingers crossed.

Here is the front of the card:

and here is the inside.  I used the negatives that I had left over from the items cut for the front of the card.

If you need a cartridge that will let you cut out cards and all the elements of the card with just the touch of a finger, this is the cartridge for you.  Thank you for stopping by today - we appreciate your visits and your comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!  Donna


  1. Praying that Jason and your mom feel better very soon!

    Happy birthday to your hubby and you made him a beautiful card -- which I know he'll love!

    Oh, my friend, I know the feeling of having to leave Buster home with the hubby -- SCARY!!! And, wow, do I worry; but, things are always okay.

    Hubby and I had a virus "bug" several weeks ago too and it was no pleasure. Now you just make sure you take care of yourself and not get your resistance down where you're susceptible -- I'll be praying for your strength and health too!

  2. I told my hubby that I had to have creative cards because of your recommendation...Can't wait to get it next Tuesday. I am celebrating my 68th birthday today!! Getting lots of presents.

    You and your mom are such wonderful witnesses for our LORD.
    Blessings, Rebya
