Card Time

Good Evening Ladies
I'm watching a wicked storm - Thunder, Lightening, Hail, Rain, Wind.  It been like this a lot this summer.
Little girl is doing amazing with potty training.  Yesterday, something clicked with her.  She decided to use the big potty and ever since then, no accidents.  Knock on wood!
Tomorrow I'll be heading to the gym and taking the kids to Kids Club.  Hope she is successful there too.

The other week, I worked on some cards.  I got most of my inspiration from SplitcoastStampers.  I love this website for ideas and challenges.  Do you use it?

I actually made two of this card as we have
two little guy's birthdays very close together
and they don't know each other :)
The black wheels are also brads.

I really like this card - so simple.
I put stickles on the leaves.

The next time I make this card,
I'm going to stamp off the 
woodgrain background first.

This is my favourite!
The background is woodgrain texture plate
and I sponged it to give more depth.

The last couple of Thanksgiving's, I've made cards for my investor's office.  They give out Thanksgiving Cards instead of Christmas Cards.  The first year, I had an order of 300 cards, last year was 450 and I'm sure I will get about a 500 card order.  I don't charge much more than cost - I know CRAZY.   But I really like doing them.  And when I'm about finished, I'm glad its only once a year haha.

I'll be working on cards for the next few weeks and am not sure how much quilting I'm going to get done.

Have a Creative Evening!

  1. Nice cards! Really like the last one with Note of Thanks- I can't imagine that many of the same thing for the office order! I do craft shows and do lots of repeats but not that much, LOL

    1. It gets really tiring and stressful at the deadline. I do love it, probably why I'm still doing it.
