Quick Cards

Good morning! I have been trying to send cards more often... for birthdays, to cheer someone up, sympathy, new house, births, etc. but, with little time, creating something to send can sometimes be daunting, not to mention intimidating. So, I have been trying to send a more simple, streamlined greeting. Here are a couple I just recently made and sent...
"Feel Better" was sent to little Miss H who has not only had surgery, but has been sick on top of it. I tucked a fun package of stickers inside in hopes to cheer her up a bit.
Supplies: patterned paper, bright pink envelope, $1 feel better stamp from Michaels, heart stamp from Paper Smooches (colored, cut, applied Glossy Accents).
"Congratulations" was sent to a friend that just moved into a new house. This card was so easy to make- a scrap of paper, stamp and a clay house attached that I found on Etsy. 
Supplies: 4bar card and blue envelope, scrap strip of paper, Congratulations stamp (ancient from an Anna Griffin set) and clay house from KittyRobot on Etsy.
At this rate and level of ease, maybe I can start sending more cards! Enjoy your day!

Happy Everything!

OK, epic fail on keeping the blog posts going... life has just been busy. End of story. And... I spend a lot of time on Pinterest. So, before the crafty posts begin, I wanted to share a few pictures...

These three cuties are my kiddos. This is the picture I used for my Christmas card.
*Note to self: always take photos at the end of October when the weather is nice, the leaves are gorgeous. Then, bribe kids with candy or ice cream... or in my case, both. Picture gets done, photo card gets picked out and it's ready before December gets here. Genius!

Here's my family on Christmas Eve. My kids are getting so big and time is going so fast that I might throw up. Somehow, I still manage to stay in my twenties. Weird, I know.
This was the best "surprised" photo I got on Christmas morning. We all had a fantastic Christmas spent with family, but this picture is a prize! Mac got his favorite soccer player, Renaldo's jersey. He was more that a little thrilled!

So, now that you've been filled in from last post to now, I can start posting some crafty goodness, and maybe a few bad boy Walter stories here and there- that dog is a mess! Enjoy your Sunday...
