15 years

I can't believe it has been FIFTEEN years since my first nephew was born!
Damon's birthday is TODAY!!!


I wanted to make him a little something for his birthday, 
and this is part of it:


I made this car box card with a digital paper/elements pack from 
Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs
(and it is available today for a discount!!!)
The pattern paper, cards, and road signs all came from the kit.

I decided to make them bigger than project life cards, and make a couple of birthday cards.
My nephew is turning 15 this week, so needed a quick and easy card for him.

Since I already had everything open on the Silhouette program, 
AND had plenty of room on my card stock to make more than one,
so I made two! 
I used the arrows template and the circle template. 

I cut the design out on my Silhouette SD. I then took all the center pieces apart in the program and just cut the circles/arrows out of pattern paper. I then paper pieced it into the cut card stock. I like how it turned out.

Sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to head over to Pixels & Co.

A Flood is Coming!

I wish there was some water in my near future. 
Our crops could sure use some right about now.
We had many storms go through the area, but none really let loose on our farm,
if they actually went over the farm at all...

I took the grey polka dot paper and color selected a flower from the embellishments pack and made the paper to match. I wanted a nice bright pink paper and loved the polka dots from this pack.
I printed it on photo paper to make it nice and shiny!

All the elements are from the

This box was so stinking easy to put together with the Print and Cut feature with my Silhouette machine!
