Christmas Card Challenge...

I am posting this Santa Card, but it’s been quite difficult to get me card list out this Holiday. I've been busy with my daughter and her new life style. She has been serving in the US Navy for the last 14 years. She has decided to leave her Navy career and become a Civilian. She has four children and they need their Mom near home. She's done three overseas tours, and with more Military personal need overseas, it’s time to pick between being a hero or being a Mom. Being a mother has over weighed her decision. I am happy with her choice. Dad has been there for the kids and I love him for it. Mom, tried to stick it out to give them everything that she wanted, but right now, Mom is better home with them. Now, Dad can be more of a help working and coming home to his family without the missing puzzle piece, MOM. Children of the ages of 2 yrs. old through 8 yrs. old need a Mother. Well, they become homeowner and I am very happy and most of all proud of them.


This is Santa Claus Card

Honor Roll 12/01/09

My Grand Son, Elias made the honor roll and this is the reason why Mom is needed at home. We are extremely proud of his accomplishment. I will try to cut some files that I need to test before posting, so please be patient with me. I will also post a couple of my old holiday files. Any request would be nice. I have some on my gallery, so let me know via email.

These are three of four grandchildren

Baby Cassie wasn't feeling Santa at all this day....

This another shoe that I made. I came across this shoe at this site, but it didn't have a file it was a print and cut. I was able to make a file for it. This site shows you how to cut it by hand, but you can also make a cut file for your cutter its not hard. Try it. I also love this shoe pattern. I know if you try it you will also like it.

Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by.
