Can't let them go to waste, Right!







Dearest Cutters, I am posting my files that I had prepared for my Christmas scrapbooks and Christmas cards. Now, that I can not cut them, I still am will to share them. Sorry, if there is anything wrong, please forgive me. I would like it very much for those who do cut them, please let me know, how they turn out for you. I did them with my loving grandchildren in mind.

So, enjoy them if you can.

I was trying to get them cut by converting the files to WPC, but My Vista is not being friendly at the moment. She thinks she's high maintenance, and has a 86 bits format. I can't even convert with the Vista download. Which I found is for 64 bit Vista format. I should have left her at the store. I am willing to be forgiving and hope to acquire the right format, if there is one out there. So, I don't have a choice but to post DFX, until I get a new GSD cutter. Also my new cuts will only be able to be shared by the Craft Robo cutters. I am sorry about this mess. In the mean time, I will continue searching, because I have a lots of work that is just existing in my computer. So, if anyone out there, who knows of any programs that can help, I would really appreciate it. :(

Left overs and its not turkey!!!





Hoping that everyone had a Happy Thanksgivng. As for myself , it was good, even though I must admit that it wasn't sugar plums dancing in my head, but a way to be able to share these files with all. I must Thank Lisa, from Risalenee creations, for helping me post my GSD file, after she converted it for me from a Dfx file. She was able to open my Dfx, though Craft Robo. It works!For those of you who have Craft Robo and the Wishblade Create and Cut version, it will open this file as well.
In the mean time, a have a few GSD files, that I didn't get a chance to test cut, but I am willing to share them. Now here are few GSD files, that I didn't get a chance to post, when I upgraded to Vista.
Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Michael !!!


Michael

I like to introduce you to Michael. His my hubby's grandson, and he's quite a character. Smart, lovable and a great brother to Raven, who I introduce earlier in my blog. His mother takes great pride in him, as well Raven. I can't believe how quickly time passes. I remember when he was born, and now he's so talkative, just like a big boy that he is. I wish him the best on his special day. So, here's a shout out to Michael,
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHORTY".
We are sending lots of love and a big wish. I am enclosing his birthday card and I hope that those of you that have WPC formats may enjoy this card, enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it for Michael. I am trying to find how to converted it to GSD, but for those who have the know how. Please convert and enjoy.

I am so sorry!!!



Pyzam Glitter Text Maker






For those of you, who have come to my site looking for Free GSD, I am sorry but my cutter has taken vacation without permission, and has left me in limbo. As soon as I am able to replace my cutter, or resolve the problem of finding a patch for Window Vista, which doesn't seem like according to Wishblade. I will continue to share. For now I only will have WPC files for Pazzles users. I have been searching for a file converter, so that I can convert my WPC files to GSD files. Quite a mission, huh! Anyway, Thank you for coming to my site and please forgive any mishaps that my files have cause. I have experienced a file that I place of a turkey for sharing and in its place a porn file was found. OMG! I was shock and embarrassed that this could happen. When I also have my grandchildren viewing my blog and family, friends that download my files. This file was removed from the 4share site. It cause me my computer, it destroyed all my drives. So, please, please make sure that you have a good , and I mean a good virus protector on your computer. Make sure to scan everything, you download. Its a nightmare to loss thousands of hours of work, plus a computer, files, etc. There are evil people out there waiting for a chance to destroy everything they can. Right now, there isn't a bandage big enough to cover my wound, and this was a very painful experience. We learn from our mistakes. :(



So once again "Thank you for you time and Have a Happy Thanksgiving."





Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Birthday Cassie!!!





Pyzam Glitter Text Maker







Today is my youngest granddaughter's first birthday.


She's having a birthday cake at home with her family. Then on Thanksgiving, we will re-celebrate it, so that we (grandparents), will be able to participate in her first birthday celebration. I look forward to it, because I have never missed any of their first birthdays. I am making her a party hat and a corsage, to commemorate her, on her special day. When I get back from Virginia, I will post some pictures from this double celebration.





Cassie, has given the biggest gift of all! She's walking! Walking without holding on to anything.





Just that quick, she just got out there and did her own thing. I am so proud of her. Its the best gift that the family can receive.




I am enclosing this birthday card that I made. Even though, its not the original card that I sent Cassie, but I made this one just the same. The card that I decide to send Cassie, had copyright issues, so here is the runner up, LOL The card that I did send her was a Betty Boop card. I pick Betty, because Cassie has lots of cute curls in her hair, the chubby cheeks and the big eyes, just like Betty Boop.











I like to share this celebrations with all of you.

Here is a surprise gift in honor of Cassie's first birthday.

NO! It's not the cupcake, but a surpise gift. LOL

Sorry for not being available in the passed but its here now!!!

Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving


Give Thanks!



The Thanksgiving Feast...


Free Clipart



The English colonists we call Pilgrims, celebrated days of thanksgiving as part of their religion. But these were days of prayer, not days of feasting. Our national holiday really stems from the feast held in the autumn of 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag to celebrate the colony's first successful harvest.
I found this picture that fit this occasion, and which I also love, so I made it into a die cut. If you lay it out careful, its a great cut out. Its also great for a school project. It can be used in many ways.

I have place this Thanksgiving wreath on this blog, which will be nice for a welcome door decor or any way that you can use it.

I want to thank all those who have left warming comments on my blog.

Happy Birthday Raven


I want to introduce Raven Marie Turpin, granddaughter on my husband side. Which it doesn't really matter, love her just the same. She's ten years old today.



She's smart, a great daughter, wonderful big sister and a loving grand. She's doing well in school, and she always finds ways to make her mother proud, as well the rest of the family. Her mother Yvonne, a single parent and a widow, always does her best to help her children excel. God bless this family and may all the good things come their way.
Here's a shout out from all of us, to you on your special day.
Happy Birthday
Raven

This is the card that I sent Raven, I'd like to share it with you.
The photo doesn't do it justice, because of the glitter paper. It cuts well and looks better first hand.
I think so, anyway. LOL


Happy_Bday_card

In response to the Glitter paper. It's Stardust pattern by Crayola (Inkjet Printable Paper) Item No. 12031-0

I am also searching for it, because I pick it up in a small dallor store, few years ago. I don't know what it really goes for, but make sure its not the stick sheet. Not every good for cut outs, the glitter peels in some places. Never got a good cut with it. I plan to go to Crayola.com for purchase or purchasing stores. Love it though, makes nice embellishing decor. :)

I also replace the card, couldn't find this one, which is the finish project. Once again, my bad! Anyway, this is it, El fin (the end)! :)

This is Raven on Halloween and her brother, Michael.

In honor, of all those who served our country. I like to dedicate this page to them. We have Vets in our family from Marines, Navy, Army and Air force, and proud of every one of them. Thank you for serving and keeping our country safe. I know that we are living in difficult times, but without our Armed Forces, things could be a lot more difficult. God bless each and every one of our Forces for every minute that the served. As hard as it is for them to be in the front line, they are brave in every way possible. God Bless our Veterans, special all those who are presently serving. May God keep you all out of harms way. I am the proud mother of a Navy Sailor, serving her, twelfth year. Support our Soldiers….
