My Mom's Friend, Barb, passed away the other night. She was in her mid 50's (?), and had ovarian cancer, that had moved to her other organs. She was told last year December that she wouldn't make it to Christmas (of last year), but she was able to live for another 8 months. Just last week, after being on the waiting list for a few months, she was able to go to Hospice.
This is the card that I made for Barb's Life partner, Sue, another good friend of my mom's.
Lattice Card base is from Just Sharing (Linda)
Behind it, I took a clear vellum, and used purple and blue inks to color it, then backed it with white paper (so on the inside, you don't see the vellum) but I didn't want this to be see through (the lattice.. Just thought it was a really neat design!)
Branch cut from Home Decor.
Flowers on branch are Flora Doodles Jeweled Florettes
Top paper is Creative Memories (came in a pack that I got from going to a crop), and embossed with the cuttlebug hearts folders (that came with a cutting die.. Can't remember the name)
Butterflies.. From Hong Kong.
Thinking of You is from Alphalicious
(this card was inspired by 2 other cards, and I kinda combined them with my own twist - Click on their names to see their cards!. Card by DC Scrapper And, card by DJ1952 )

The previous PDF's will no longer be available - thanks to the many thousands that downloaded them! You will want to stay up to date and download these new ones!
Feedback and comments are greatly appreciated!!

CRICUT FONTS - **revised file**
DOWNLOAD EXCEL FILE - This has all charts, in an editable format.
So I took the plung and painted mine purple and blue!
Here's the prep picture.. I had a heck of a time getting the rub-ons off from when I altered it before.. (see my Altered Cricut post for before pictures) so I just spray painted over the ones I couldn't get off..
And here it is done!
Did you know.. that spray paint eats through foam?!
I found that out while doing my touch ups! - I even had 2 bowls, and it ate right through them! Tin or plastic works MUCH better!!
And here is was before I started laundry.. look at him! It's like he owns the place!

That post has be removed. But. I wanted to do a follow up on it, for those that were curious, or wondered where it went.
I won't bring up all the details, but in short, Kevin from OMC contacted me via Yahoo Messenger, and apologized.
You can view our chat here and see that we both aplogized to eachother, him for the images, and me for blowing it up so out of proportion, that ya know.. in the end.. I had no idea why I was so upset.
Kevin had requested my address, and you can see from the chat that he offered to send me items to make up for it, and although I appreciated the gesture, it wasn't necessary, as I was in the wrong too.
Today.. I got a box in the mail from OMC.
In it was an I-Top (Not just any I-Top.. their exclusive black handle one) along with 4 cuttlebug folders.
Kevin, if you are reading this. Thank you. You didn't have to send me anything, but you went above and beyond, even tho I was at fault too. I already have the cuttlebug folders, so I will be giving them away on my blog for the 3D House Contest . I had a heck of a time making my first brad, but I think I got the hang of it now! I can't wait to try fabric I think it will be really neat, and hope to use them on a swap.

Here is Kitchen #1, also know as the Medallion Kitchen. Medallion Cabinets are manufactured in Waconia, MN (Almost down the road from Valley Fair!) I am in the process of repainting the walls, so I will post a new picture once they are painted! It will be a green color. (Something Sage. I remember the sage part... lol)
Here are 2 more Medallion pieces - both Hutches. I am painting these walls too, and will post a new picture when they are done.
So.. I am going to be doing all 12 months in the different font carts and offering them here :)
(not too orginal, but..I haven't seen anyone do them yet!)
I am going to attempt to do one set per day..
This one is Hello Kitty Font, and you will need the cart to cut it.
Comes with regular and shadow.
if you don't want to cut all, just copy and paste the ones that you want to a new sheet.
Please comment if there are fonts that you would like, otherwise, I'll be doing them by random!

Previous PERFECT PAIR POST
(and.. well.. I'm too lazy to rewrite this, so this is from an email that I sent out yesterday to a group of mine..)
On the home front...
I have been kinda hesitant to post this, but well, I feel that I need to do it, because well, my address won't be changing.
After truly looking at my expenses and the cost of the apartment (and it is truly a great price), after paying Daycare (to my ex), Car insurance, Car Payment, Credit Cards, and then the apartment itself, I'd have about $100 left - and that was basing it off a "summer hours" paycheck, as winter is just 6 months away and money will be tighter then. The lady that I talked to at the Realty was really hesitant to let me rent with my credit score as low as it is (due to consolidating all my cards into one payment, and closing the accounts) and was willing to give it a try, but she didn't want me to get knee deep in crap and have no way out of the lease either, or get evicted because money was tight in the winter. The $100 would have left each month was to cover Gas, Food and Renters insurance (which I hadn't even looked into, but they suggested that I should have it)
I had a long long talk with my mom - we were on the phone for 3 hours! And well, my parents aren't perfect either. They have been married for 25 years, and I can't remember how many times my dad 'threatened' to move out, and mom would be there gladly helping him.. And vise versa (I remember mom came home drunk one night.. Late late at night... And Dad started throwing her clothes outside on the lawn... That was about 20 years ago!). But they were able to work through it all, and are still going strong. Charlie also had a long talk with his parents on Sunday night and found out that they too fight (he always thought that they never fought! Who doesn't?!) and also talked to them about personal things that has been eating him for the last 25 years... (Charlie was adopted from an orphanage in Guatemala when he was 8, and has had visions and such of his past that have been bothering him..he hates his past and had a really rough time before he ended up at the orphnage.. things like storms and firewords set him off cause it reminds him of the sounds of bombs....)
I don't think I was truly fair on my previous posts, as there are always 2 sides to every story, and well, I was just telling my side.
Charlie and I had a LONNNG talk. He feels that I spend too much time with my Internet friends and in my scrapbooking room. I think he spends too much fishing and with his cousin. (which Charlie has been a good influence on him, he's 16, and Charlie has been encouraging him to try to do well in school and that he needs to save his money that he is making at his grandparents farm. Charlie's parents will be taking responsibility of this boy for the winter while his grandparents vacation in Florida. Charlie's parents and the grandparents are sister/brother, and they all are in their 70's, so Charlie has been telling his cousin that he better behave at his parents house and not try to pull something lol) anyways, got way off topic there.. Charlie has been more than encouraging on my card sales - it was Charlie's mom that got me involved in all of them. And he doesn't complain when I spend my money on scrappy stuff... And then sometimes have an unexpected bill and need to borrow money until the next paycheck. There is a lot of good things that he has done. There has been many times where he has offered to help me with my cards, but usually I feel that he's "in the way" and then it doesn't go well. (and I'm selfish.. these are my toys and I have worked really hard to get them.. he won't let me use his drills or power tools, cause well, he's selfish with his toys too!)
We have decided to remain together, and seek counseling to see if that will help us. We are also going to do more things together, as I have drifted toward my room and he stays in the living room. We are planning for a trip to the Mall of America, so that I can go to Archivers, and there's a few things he wants to check out too. We are planning on the Renaissance festival in MN also, along with going back to our weekly Target trips to check out the clearance sections that somewhere down the road we stopped doing. I am going to *try* not to spend my entire days off on the computer (when we are both home) and to cook more 'real' meals. We were thinking of having a cookout before the end of summer and inviting a bunch of people from work to it.
Whew. Sorry for the long post. Thank you for listening, and thanks to everyone for the support that I have had for the last week.
**update** Today, I actually COOKED SUPPER! LOL, well, me and Betty Crocker did! But it was good, and wow, it didn't really take too long to make! Lovin' my oven!
I can not thank you ladies enough!!! You have no idea how much this means to me. I will definatly get more and more cut files up!!! I'm working on a few right now, and some SVG's too!!
Thank you all so much!!!!
