A SPECIAL GIRL CALLED OLIVIA AND A GOOD WITCH

This post has been edited to include the current giveaway going on over at The Cutting Cafe...Leave me a comment and I will randomly choose one winner to win all of the sets featured in this post:
MIKALA ANN BEING A GOOD WITCH
8 BY 5 INCH BOX WITH DIVIDERS
COLOR ME IN SENTIMENTS
for all of you that have already left a comment, you will also be added in the drawing. I will draw a name this coming Saturday....

Hello everyone welcome to another MADE IT MYSELF MONDAYS...I have 2 projects to share with ya today...one that is very dear to my heart...I remember a few years ago I had to get an emergency Hysterectomy.....it was the worst pain I had every experienced in my lift..yeah worst then having all 4 of my kids....I had 2 HUGE tumors, one on each of my ovaries that had exploded...anyhoo I remember back then I was a CRICUT BUG NUT...literally spent days and nights posting and communicating with the girls on the board...many of us still to this day are very close...anyhoo, I remember when I had to get the emergency surgery and the board found out about it, I was flooded with cards, get well wishes and gifts...it was the most wonderful feeling to know that people I had never ever laid eyes showed so much care for me...it really got me through the whole ordeal.....ANYWAYS so when I read a post that my sis Teri had participated in for a sweet little girl name Olivia, I knew I wanted to participate...you can read all about it here and see Mrs. Teri adorable card over there as well.....Thanks T, for doing it and sharing with all of us....

This little box of COLOR ME IN SENTIMENT cards is for OLIVIA...She is having surgery for tumors and they want to fill her room with cards...so instead of sending her a card, I thought I would send her a set of THANK YOU AND JUST FOR YOU cards that she can color in and send to some special family and friends thanking them for her cards.....
Here's the inside of the box....there are 6 COLOR ME IN SENTIMENTS in the box....I thought it would be fun for her to be able to color some cards in herself...I also made her a few heart and flower matching stickers that she can put on her envelopes or on the cards...there is also a few colored in by Olivia tags for her to put on the back of the cards...all of these things are self adhesive...so she doesn't need any glue...the rhinestones are also self adhesive...
I covered the crayons to match the box and added some stamps....Don't want her parents to have to worry about getting stamps...
Thanks sis Teri for sharing the Information about Olivia....we are all prayer for you sweetie.
This set is perfect for kids to color in for their own teachers, family and friends.

To make this set I used the following cafe sets:
8 by 5 inch box with dividers

COLOR ME IN SENTIMENTS:

Up next is my first HALLOWEEN CARD.....I so love Halloween...not the buggy man and then devil side of it, but all the treats and fun images to make cards and gift packages...This card comes from the new MIKALA ANN BEING A GOOD WITCH SET.....I decided to use colors that had nothing to do with Halloween...
The paper is by a company called Authentique....and I fell in love with the patterns....I so love this set of images cause it comes with a few different outfits as well as two different witch hats...
not sure if you can see the glitter on her hat, but it awesome...it cost me 11 bucks...geeesss, it is by fairydust....it is amazing I tell ya...super fine...LOVE IT....I also added a few black rhinestones to her dress and flowers....
Well thanks for visiting me today and please be sure to check out the post on OLIVIA and visit the I MADE IT MYSELF MONDAYS..
Also there is still time to enter the challenge going on over at the cafe here...you could win any 5 sets of your choice...hugs
