Fallen Heroes/PPPR

Hi everyone,

I am coming to share this shaped card I made for PPPR! This post is to honor all of the Fallen Heroes who have fought for our country, sometimes we often forget what Memorial Day represents. Please say a prayer for those families who have lost loved ones and if you know someone who is in the Armed Forces tell them Thank You for serving!

Today I am using We Salute you cutting Files.
To all the families who have lost loved ones, may you be blessed and may God heal the hurt and wrap his loving arms around you and to those who are serving Thanks so much for your service...

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!

 It's my day over at PPPR, I want to share another shaped card with you today! My daughter loves Cookie dough ice cream, so I thought she would love to enjoy some cool treats on me! This cute Ice Cream Truck will do the trick as well as this Basic Gift card holder. I just did a little tweaking here and there and my Ice Cream Truck with gift card holder came together perfectly! Love it and she did too!!

Shaker Card/PPPR!!

Hi everyone,

It's my day over at PPPR and I have this fun card to share with you today. Lisa has created this adorable Fiesta cutting file and since Cinco De Mayo is later this week, it's the perfect time to use it!
So I used the entire file to create this 9x4 shaker card! I purchased the fuse tool by project life a while ago and hadn't used it much so, thought I would give it a whirl again. I used a page protector normally used for scrapbooks to make my shaker, fused the edges and voila a shaker card, I still need much practice!! Over all I think it turned out OK?!?

(My original plan was to do a shaped card with this same file, but opted for this one, but let me know if you would like to see it and maybe I will finish making it to post later this week).

I hope you have enjoyed my card, be sure to pick up this file and many more at PPPR and also the Silhouette store, which the Silhouette store has a wonderful sale goin on right now, perfect time to stock up on PPPR cutting files!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Spec-tacular/PDE Linky Party!!

Hi everyone,

Card share, time for the PDE Linky Party, we want to see what you are working on and anyone can join cause as always it's anything goes...

Now onto my card, I found this image of Dexter's laboratory online and it just brings back memories of my children when they were young watching it before they would head out to school. I am sure some of you have those memories as well!! So I decided to turn it into a cutting file, tell me what you think!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

PPPR Inspirational Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

So glad you have came to be inspired!!! If you stopped by to visit and would like to participate you may start with our lovely host Lisa, if you came from Leah's blog then your headed in the right direction.

Did you know not only can you purchase PPPR cutting files at her store, but that you can also purchase them from the Silhouette store too!!! The quickest way to find her in the Silhouette store is to go to Artist and look for the PPPR logo!!!

Now onto my project and Cutting Files!!
Oh, I so love how this turned out!! I have always admired this chicken coop and knew someday I would be using it, well the time is now!!! I started out by putting this card layout together on my silhouette using several different files from PPPR mixing and mingling them just the way I wanted!! I used the offset to create the shaped card and voila, cuteness is born!!! 
Guess what this tree is used for, if you guessed the grass, then your right I just stretched it a bit!!
