ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Baby Shower Card

For my Brother and Sister in Law

If this posted correctly then you will be reading this as I am landing in Denver, Colorado. I am traveling with my Mother in Law to attend my Sister in Laws baby shower. I'm over the moon excited to see her, my Brother in Law and my Niece; however, leaving my husband and children for 3 days will be difficult. I'm looking forward to my time away but I will miss them dearly!

This is the card I will be giving my Sister in Law at her shower.

This is the inside of the card.

I also made this Nursing cover for her.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great Saturday!

New Look!

Blog Makeover

I have been working on customizing my blog for the past 2 days and I must have done something really wrong because I applied a new template and LOST all my comments. Well, Thankfully I figured it out and they're all back; however, My blog is no where near what I want it to look like! I want to make more changes but I'm done for this weekend.

Hope your day is a creative one!

A Mother's Love!

Dream Mansion

My girls have been waiting patiently since Christmas for me to build this amazing doll house they received from their Grandma and Papa. 
You may be asking "Why did I wait so long?" 
Well, first of all it's HUGE. 
Second, I had to find a home for it in our house and 
Third, the girls received so many toys that I thought it would be a good idea to hold out on this one until the newness of everything else wore off. 
The girls couldn't wait any longer so today I built their DREAM MANSION and boy was it ever a beast to put together. Combine the frustration of tiny screws, 100 parts, 6 extra helping hands and Mommy wasn't a happy camper; however, in the end it turned out perfectly! My reward is hearing my girls playing together happily and telling me I'm the best Mom in all the world! :) 

So here she is... Barbie's New Home!

And the Happy Girls who get to play with it!

The only issue now is that it's too big to put in the girls room so finding it a permanent home is still on the to do list.

If you've arrived here from the very talented Nancy at Scrap Happens, then you are certainly heading in the right direction! I love her bright and Cherry card! :) Oh and I'm jealous that she's at Hobby Lobby today - we don't have them here in California.

The Easter deadline is March 18th with Mother's Day following right behind on March 31st. Please make sure your cards arrive by these deadlines so that they can be mailed promptly to our troops. I also invite you to visit the Hero Blog and read the many entries there from Heroes far away.  They really do appreciate all the love and care put into each card.
