Cupcake Gift Tags

I found a little time to play today, and this is what I came up with. These are gift tags. On the back, I stamped a sentiment by Unity Stamps that says "have a sweet day". I used chocolate ink from CTMH to stamp the images and sentiment. The cardstock is Brazill and the designer paper is from ki memories. It is the Bloom Collection-Canopy. The ribbon is from Stampin Up and I used my scalloped punches. They are a happy thing and I can just see them hanging on a package with bright colors and tissue paper.
Everyone made it home safely yesterday. Last to arrive was Carre about 4:30. She and her friend stopped in Millington, TN and got her friend a new puppy. It is a female Westie (West Highland Terrior-I think) and her name is Gypsy. I cannot wait to see her. The hunters did not have any luck. Jack made it in from New Orleans in time to see the 2nd half of the Ole Miss game. What about those Rebels? I went to Mississippi State and my children have split the colleges. One went to State and the other to Ole Miss. There was a time when I could not have thought about yelling for them, but I have mellowed and I can thank my kids for that. The other person that made it home yesterday was Logan, one of my friends grandbabies. Hopefully with continued prayers Landon will be home in a few weeks. I spent a little while yesterday rocking. He is so sweet and loves to lay on his stomach and cuddle on your shoulder. I thank God everyday that these boys have progressed this far so fast.
Well I guess I better cook supper and get these boys fed. Simon has spend the night company and I decided to fry some fish I had in the freezer. Ya'll take care, be healthy, happy, and safe. See ya tomorrow. God bless ya'll.

Happy New Year!!!

I wish for everyone a blessed, healthy, happy new year. I plan to be more creative. My goals are to make at least one card a week, and to spend more time at home instead of work. I am tired!!! I also have started sewing again, and plan on taking a quilting class in late January. I also am going to keep my other blog updated weekly or more as well. Life is to short to waste time. Enjoy every minute. The above card is my new motto for 2009--Go for long walks, indulge in hot baths, question your assumptions, be kind to yourself, live for the moment, LOOSEN UP ( my kids will love this one), scream, curse the world ( only if it really needs it), count your blessings (daily), just let go, just be!! Try it folks, you might like it too.

Update on the babies--Logan is coming home tomorrow. Yea! Yea! Yea! Landon is planned to come home in two weeks. He will have to come home on oxygen though, but that is minor to where they have been. I appreciate all the prayers that ya'll have given for these two. God is great and he has blessed my friend and her family with these beautiful babies.

Ya'll take care now. My family is really spread out this holiday. Me and little buddie (Simon) are home, Carre is in Gatlinburg with friends welcoming in the new year--they called me at 2 am to tell me Happy New Year and they were in for the night. God bless youth!! Doss is up a tree somewhere hunting, I will see him later in the day, Daddy is also hunting, but he also will be home this afternoon, and Jack (hubby) is in New Orleans working. Have a blessed day, hug your loved ones, and stay warm( it is even cold here!!). God bless ya'll!!!!!!

Oh, almost forgot. Saw this while blog hopping this am--2009 is the year of the cupcake!! Cupcakes are happy and I think I will also follow this. Have you ever seen a cupcake that did not make you smile?? Take care!!
