Happy New Year, Great News & "IFTL"


A Happy New Year to all and Yes, its nice to back!!!
 2013 was a great year for me even with minor health issues it was still a great year. I met such wonderful people in bloggy world and with their inspiration it allowed me to grow as an individual but also appreciate every single one of you. Bloggy world has allow me to improve the crafty side of me as well as the spiritual side. It has allow me to grow in strength, love and to always remain true to who I am and to continue with my purpose in this world.

Before I go into my post, I wanted to answer a question which I have been asked about....
(I am okay with answering this question) No I am no longer part of 2 Creative Chicks. Best of luck to Nana & Pam!

Now for my GREAT news.......
For several months now I have been helping out Evelyn (owner) of the Cut It Up Challenge Blog with reaching out to sponsors (which has been very successful) and with anything else that it's
needed. Just being part of a wonderful team and being appreciated by every single design team member has made it so much fun to CREATE!! 3 days ago, Evelyn asked me to officially come on board as a co-owner and I said ....YES!!!!!! So, look out for those wonderful and FUN changes as well as challenges over at Cut It Up!  Evelyn, I am forever Grateful!

Now on to my Project........
I created a Hello Kitty card with a free file from Ruthie .
Thanks Ruthie!!!
The SUPER cute sketch is from DCD (This weeks challenge).
I had to bling her up with white pearl dew drops and pink rhinestones. I stamped "Keep Smiling".
My Hello Kitty card will be going to Baylee.....

This month's recipient over at
"I Feel The Love" Project: January 2014.
As per "IFTL project" Here is her story....

In August of 2011, shortly right before her 4th birthday, Baylee was diagnosed with a very rare disorder called Isolated NK Cell Deficiency. There are very few cases in the world. In addition, Baylee has been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Patients with NK cell deficiency are born with low or nonexistent levels of NK cells. As a result, these patients are vulnerable to infections. Life expectancy varies among patients, depending on how severe the deficiency. The condition may lead to fatal infections.
Despite these challenges, Baylee continues to make the most of each day and always with a smile on her face.  Let's do what we can to fill her box with love and support!!!  We have learned that her bedroom is decorated with Hello Kitty, one of her favorite things :) 

Here is my Hello Kitty card!

  17. CONGRATS on your wonderful news!!!
    I am sooo happy for you.
    You deserve it sweetie.

    Crafty hugs,

  18. Wahhh! I started to cry reading your post. I simply cannot imagine having a child so sick. What a blessing you are to make this card for Baylee. I'm sure she'll love her Hello Kitty card - and her mum will be so incredibly touched that you took the time to make it for her. The card is just perfect for a little girl!!

    And I DID smile when I read your news about Cut it Up! Congratulations!!

  19. My angelic friend, at last I am here playing catch-up! What a stretch it has been! I even missed the MCS blog hop.. I've never missed out on those. :( Hopefully Kimberly and her team felt my sparkling hugs anyway. And now, about you and your amazing post... I am SO EXCITED FOR YOU! And for Cut It Up, because you will work with all of your beautiful heart and will be even more of a blessing to the challenge. Congratulations, my sweet friend!

    And about your card... sweet Baylee will adore it! HK is adorable (I am so thankful for Ruthie and have used her files so often) and I love the color palette. The pearly and sparkly accents are perfection, as is the sentiment. I can so easily envision her face lighting up upon seeing this... and I hope your heart sparkles extra brightly at that exact moment. I am already so attached to her!
    I am thankful that we both have servants hearts... using our crafty passion and gifts to bless others. I often think of you while I'm working on my IFTL projects and my goodies for Baylee are no exception. Always remember how much of your love permanently lives inside the hearts of those for whom you create... especially IFTL recipients. And thank you for your sweet words on my card for Trinitie. I saw Trin's mom's post within an hour of her telling everyone and I was devastated... like so many. Here's to another year of making a difference in the lives of those who are suffering! I love you, Millie!

    Hugs and blessings!

  20. Beautiful card! Thank you for joining is over at V's sweet challenge.

  21. Beautiful card. I'm the biggest fan of hello kitty. been looking for a website that i can get hello kitty cut outs or files someone is willing to share. I'm disabled and am on a very limited income and cricut cartridges are 100.00 to 145.00 and no way i can afford that and svg website has nothing for hello kitty. so here is my email address if anyone would care to lend a hand/help. I want to say thank you in advance to anyone willing to help with Hello Kitty cut files. tysvm from the bottom of my heart...



Thank you for stopping by. You made me smile.
Have a wonderful day,
