Subway art I {heart} you!

Welcome on this rainy Friday here in Ohio!  On a happier note my house smells like cupcakes!

Today I have a wonderful new obsession of mine....SUBWAY ART!!  I'm in love and I've done several but this was my first and largest so farv (I have many more planned).  It is a 16x20" canvas and it looks fabulous on my wall.  I found different fonts that I like and cut them on my Cricut using the Make The Cut software.  I used all of our names, states that we've lived in, important dates, and words and phrases that describe our family.  Some of the paint seeped on the left side but I still love it so much I often just stare at

I'm working on perfecting the 11x14" size right now before I do another large one.  I'll show you those next week.

Don't for get to stop by the Roberts Arts and Crafts blog to enter the Roberts Crafts Freebie Friday Giveaway!  They are giving away three cricut cartridges today!

I have a little request.  I don't usually do this but I'm asking for those of you who pray to keep my home town and the surrounding area in your prayers.  I'm from Knox City, Texas, a little town barely a dot on the map.  There is a huge wildfire heading towards them from Stonewall country Texas.  The last I was updated Thursday night it had already burned more than 50,000 acres and had not been contained.  Please help me by praying for rain that they so desperately need and for the winds to die down.  Pray for the firefighters who've been fighting this fire and others like it all across the state.

Have a fabulous Friday!!

The last of the thank you's

Good morning to you!!  We had a wonderful time at Grandma's and Grandpa's this week but I was glad to get back to my own bed last night.  We have a couple more days to live up spring break and then it will be back to the The weather is so pretty but have a chane of rain today.  I was going to take the girls to the zoo but it might have to wait until the next long weekend.  I'd hate to be at the zoo when it started raining and thundering.  So we are going to hang out with Rach and her kiddos (I might just snuggle into her wonderful couch and not move!)

I have the last two card that I made for my friend.  I think I'll be using a number of my scraps to make thank you cards with this layout.  Its super simple and looks great.  I may have to invest in some fancy buttons, I used the only one I had on the bottom card and I think it looks great.

Don't you just love Mondays!!

Good morning to you from Spring Break Monday and Grandma's house!  We've already enjoyed pizza and Grandma's cupcakes last night.  I hope no one will judge me for having one of  Grammie's fabulous cupcakes for breakfast.  While my morning started off waaaaayyyy earlier than I wanted or expected it is a glorious warm morning.  I'm so ready for constant warm weather.

Well on to my cards  this morning.  This is another set that I made for my friend. 

I love the paper on the top one and I can't even remember where it came from.  Its double sided so I'm guessing it came from a K & Company stack.  I believe the sentiment came from PTI's Scattered Showers set.  Its a simple layout but I love it.

I hope that everyone has a fantastic day and a fabulous week!!

Cupcakes part duex

I'm about ready to throw my laptop out the window!! 

But on a brighter note Spring Break starts today at 2:10 PM in our house.  No homework, or spelling words, or early mornings for a whole week.  I'm not going to do more than a couple of loads of laundry (we have to have cloths to take to Grandma's) the whole week.  There is going to be lots of reading, movie watching and lots and lots of Barbie playing.  I'm hoping to be able to write up some post this weekend and have them scheduled for next week since internet connection at Grandma's isn't the best.  However if you don't hear anything from me next week it will be because I started slacking the moment I finished this post..LOL!!

Two more cards like yesterday's in different colors.  On the two yesterday I colored the icing part with Triart marker but the two today I paper pieced the icing.

Have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend!!
