Coffee and Friendship

I received this great stamp from my friend Gina, as well as the papers!  I just love a good cup of coffee and this sentiment says it all!!!  Good coffee is like friendship, rich and warm and strong. I am blessed to have some good friends in my life!!!  The inside sentiment says Java great time on your birthday!

Cricut Etch wedding gift

OK, so I started with a gift for a friend that got married. I have known her since she was a baby. I etched the love birds from the Tie the Knot cartridge and used the numbers from the Teardrop cartridge to add the wedding date.

Where have I been? A wedding project

I can't believe it has been since February since I posted on my blog. Where has the time gone? It used to be a part of my morning routine to get on here, and if not post a blog at least visit the blogs I love for inspiration!  I opened a second dental office in my town. So I now manage 2 offices. This has been a difficult transition for me. I already worked hard, now I work so dang hard!! I went from trying to work just 40 hours a week, to it being routine to do 50 or more hours in a week. So, needless to say my creative time has gone out the window.
With my daughter's wedding quickly approaching I am working on projects for that and thought it would be fun to chronicle those projects.  Yesterday I started etching votives. I also want to do the wine glasses for the bridal party and are working out those details.
So for this project I bought some larger votives from the dollar store.  I used some contact paper and my cricut expression that my dear husband bought me for Christmas. I used Armour Etch that I got off of Ebay. The cartridge that I used is the Tie the Knot cartridge.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be adding more projects and hope that you will give me some constructive criticism.
