I cannot believe that Halloween is pretty much over here!  I love this time of year!  Let me share some of my favorite moments of the season with you guys. 

Just another day in the life of Robyn, mother of 5!!!  LOL!



Our poor Muffin!!


I love going to the pumpkin patch every year with my family.  We went on Friday night and had a great time and made many memories. Of course, that was also the night where I embarrassed myself many times. LOL!  Gotta love a wild soul, right?


Have an absolutely WONDERFUL day everyone!!  See you next month!!

More Smiley Cards & Happy Halloween!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday so far!  It is Halloween here in Oklahoma where we will be dressing up & trick or treating later.  I just thought I would share some more of the Halloween treat bags I made for my kids and goodie bags I made for my husband's employees.  Hope you enjoy them!

This card was made for my Kindergartener to give to the "Gingerbread" man at school.

I made 66 of this tread bag for my 3 Elementary School-Aged kids.  The stamp is from Spooky Puns from My Pink Stamper Original Stamps.

I made 8 bags filled with Peeps, candy, chocolate covered popcorn, & Bath & Body Works soap for my hubby's staff.

Have a WONDERFUL Holiday weekend!!

 My 12 year old daughter is so excited!  She even named it "Cupcake"!  She thinks it is hers alone but we will see.  I am sure she is going to use it to decorate her cupcakes a lot though.



We can't decide if Cupcake is a girl or a boy, though.  Why don't YOU decide!  Leave a comment on what gender you think our new Cupcake is and we will give away a Cake Basics Cartridge!

Think Pink Week Day 5!!

Happy Friday Everyone!

This has been an amazing week!  I have felt uplifted by the many comments and e-mails I have received from those of you who are now going or know someone going through breast cancer treatment.  WOW! We need to stop this little bugger in its tracks!!!  

I received this letter yesterday...

"Robyn,

My cousin Kelly just had her right breast removed on Tuesday.
Could we please add her to the list.  I know this would lift her spirits. Her motto is GOD IS ABLE
Her address is

Kelly Hutinson
63 Morningside dr
Utica, Oh 43080

This would mean the world to me if she opened her mailbox and got a card everyday or several in one day. I have attached a picture of here before she did a walk for breast cancer one week before here surgery.

Thank you,
Tina Lee"


Also, don't forget to think about Brenda today as she has her double mastectomy.  I'm sure she is very scared and also needs our comfort.

I heard that all went well with Monique's surgery yesterday so thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.



Today I have decided to share a card I made using Cricut Rock Princess Cartridge along with my new Love-alicious Stamp Set!  So cute!!



How about I also give away one of these new Love-alicious My Pink Stamper sets!  Just leave a comment on this post with one thought from this Think Pink Week!

Think Pink Week Day 4! (Good luck Monique)

It is time for Think Pink Week Day 4!  There are 2 ladies & fellow scrapbookers that I mentioned earlier this week.  Monique & Brenda are both having double mastectomies this week.  Monique's is today so she will need our extra thoughts and prayers!  

One of my viewers sent me another mother, friend, grandmother that just found out she has breast cancer this week and asked if we would also send her cards.  I told her that we would love to!  That is what we do best, right?  What is the point of having this awesome hobby/talent if we do not share it with others and try to lift them up.   
 
Here is the note I received yesterday...
"Robyn,
I know you are crazy busy. I just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. I have a really close friend who is a mother, grandmother, and retired elementary teacher in our community that has done so much for everyone. She just found out Monday that she has breast cancer. I would so love it if we could put her address up so she could get cards from all of us. Let me know what you think?"

Here is a PINK card I made today using the new Smiley Cards Cartridge that will only be available to those who register their Gypsy before October 31st!  That is THIS Sunday!  If you are on the fence about purchasing a Gypsy, now is the time to go out and purchase it.  You also get 5 other cartridges for download FREE plus the 2 that come with the Gypsy.  That is a SUPER deal!

I used my new Pinka-licious Puns stamp sets that I created.  You can view or purchase it from one of my retailers on my Products page.    I am thinking that I would also like to have this as a giveaway, too, for the week!!  Just leave a comment on THIS post to enter, and that will also give you another chance at the Cricut Expression Giveaway that I announced on Monday!!
Think Pink Everyone!!

Smiley Cards Cricut Cartridge

Happy Thursday Everyone!!

I am so excited to share some projects I have made with the new (exclusive to Gypsy) download that is ONLY available to all Gypsy owners who register their Gypsy before October 31st.  This cartridge will not EVER be available to purchase later (from what I understand) and is a special promotion.  ANYONE who now owns a Gypsy will receive it on their next update on November 1st.  

Can I just tell you how much I am loving this cartridge?  It is similar to Simply Charmed but has a unique look to it.  I especially love the whites of the eyes.

Here is a card that I made for a Girls Night Out last night.  It was a friend's birthday.  Isn't it ADORABLE??
I used Pinka-licious Puns stamp set from My Pink Stamper for the saying.  ADORABLE!!!

This next project is made using the cutest crab EVER!!  I also used Even More Punny-licious from My Pink Stamper (all of my stamps are available for pre-order on my Product page).

This goodie bag was made for my 3 year olds Mother's Day Out Halloween party today.  I had to make 20 of them and it took me about 2 1/2 hours.  Today I will be making 60 more for my 3 Elementary age kids for tomorrow.  Going to be a BUSY day!!
The stamp is from Spooky Puns from My Pink Stamper, too!

Don't forget that this is Think Pink Week on My Pink Stamper and you can win the Pink Expression!!  Just watch for my posts and leave a comment on each one to get extra entries.  You do not have to follow or subscribe to enter.  Thank you to all of you who do, though.

Cricut Car Decals Cartridge

Happy Monday Eveyone!

I made the CUTEST decal ever for my car using Cricut Car Decals Cartridge!  Hope you like it.  Everyone can see me comin'!!

Here is a quick tutorial on how to apply vinyl to your car.

Step 1:  Cut out your image on vinyl with setting at 3 for blade, middle for pressure.
 Step 2:  Add transfer tape over the top of your image.
 Step 3:  Peel the backing off the vinyl.
 
 Step 4:  Wipe down your car window where you want to add the vinyl.  (I used a baby wipe on mine.  LOL!)
 Step 5:  Add your image to your car.
Step 6:  Peel off the transfer tape.
Don't ya just love it!!!
