Sister card

Happy weekend eve!! For being a short work week, I feel like it should already be Friday!!

Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made for Abie, even though I haven't given it to her yet. Awhile back she was having some problems with some girls at school and I happened to run across this journaling card that was perfect and reinforced everything I was telling her :)

I rounded the corners of the card and used my spiral tab punch to add a little something extra and make it look not so journal card-ish.

I hope you're having a good week!! Thanks for stopping by today :)

One layer graduation card.

Happy weekend eve!! Today I wanted to share a graduation card with you that I made for an open house we went to last weekend.

Usually when we go to these types of events, we get the traditional school announcement, but this time we got a really awesome 5x7 card with different photos of the graduate and fun quotes, with the information about the open house on the back.

Since it was a little different, I didn't have the colors of the school, so I had to wing it ;). In hindsight, I guess I could have googled the school colors, right?  Anyway, I used my one, and only, graduation set, and got to work!!

Thanks for popping in today! Hope you have a fab Thursday friends!!

Matching boy birthday tags.

Good morning!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  We were crazy busy on Saturday.  Mike had a race at 9AM that we went and cheered him on at, then Abie had an open gym at noon for volleyball.  After she got home and cleaned up, we headed off to a graduation party.  Then we fixed dinner and Mike took the girls to a birthday party while I stayed home and cleaned up the house.  Whew!  It was quite a day :)

The birthday party the girls went to was for two of our neighbors.  I have a hard time finding boy gifts and making boy cards, etc.  So I ended up picking up both of them water balloon launchers and new swim trunks, because you can never have enough swim trunks (or swim suits) (or pajamas) (or chocolate)  Since their gifts were matching, I made their tags *sort of* matching too.

See, matching, but not :)

On Sunday we stayed home, but were busy getting projects done around the house.  The weather was gorgeous and we spent almost ALL day outside.  We have a busy week, Royals game, another open gym, family from out of town coming in and most importantly THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!!  It should be an awesome week!!

I hope things are great where you are and I'll be back soon with a graduation card.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Mother's Day Card

Good morning!! Today I wanted to share the mother's day card I made for my mom and where I got the inspiration.

I found this gift card and just loved the colors so I drew from that.

I hope you're having a great week!! I have a few more things to share this week, so until then, have an awesome Wednesday!!

Teacher appreciation day.

Good morning!! Did you have a good weekend? We were super productive and got all of our painting done! I still need to pick up some new towels for the girls bathroom and there's another shelf I want to hang in my craft room, but other than that, everything is back to normal :)

This week is teacher appreciation week at Landry's school. I picked up some tulips for her and we put then in an old pop bottle. Then I made a tag and tied it on with twine. I love how this turned out!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a beautiful Tuesday!

Birthday, or any day, tag

Happy weekend eve!!  This week has really drug on for me. It's been kind of cold and rainy here, which hasn't helped matters, but the weather is turning around today!!

Tuesday night we had a birthday party for one of our neighbors and I whipped up a quick tag for his present.  The piece I trimmed out that has the sentiment on it had pre printed washi tape and it didn't match the rest of the tag at all. So, I covered it up with black washi tape to help it blend in better.

This weekend we are painting the girls bathroom and the craft room, which will probably eat into my crafting time.  Hopefully I'll have pictures of the finished rooms to share though!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Thursday and an awesome weekend!!
