California Card Day

I am thinking of doing a card day when I visit my family in California in June. These are the cards we'll be doing. All the paper will be cut, and you get to stamp the images. Even if this is your first time stamping, don't worry, I will be there to help the whole time. Everyone that came last year loved it! The cost is a very inexpensive $2.00 a card. You will need to supply adhesive to glue/tape your cards together. This can be purchased at Michaels/Tall Mouse/Wal-Mart. There are many out there but "Tombo" is one to get, ask the sales clerk and tell them you need something to make cards or to scrapbook. It should only cost 4-5 dollars.

If you're interested leave me a comment. I need to have a rough estimate before I leave for Cali so I have enough supplies. Thanks!

By the way, I moderate the comments, so you won't see yours come once you submit it. I have to OK all the comments before they will actually show up on the blog page.

Anyhoo. On to the cards. I hope you like them.

Daddy Countdown

My girlfriend's husband has just deployed to Afganistan. She let me make this for her son as she wanted some kind of countdown. I really like the way it turned out. There is a small clothespin just under and to the right of "daddy" for a picture.

(I finished the countdown and showed it to my husband, he said that it was too bad there wasn't room for a picture. Usually when he makes a comment about my cards and projects I smile and say "Yeah, well, I like it this way. Thanks though." Often his comments are about color choice or use of ribbon and hardware. But, the more I looked at my countdown the more I realized he was right!!!! So I pulled off a star and added the clothespin. And thanks be given to my husband, because I think it makes the piece perfect.) I hope my friend likes it as well.








This is the back of the countdown. I used the ends of coin envelopes to hold the numbers. This was the easiest way I could think of to keep everything organized and in one place. Hopefully it works out.



Thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you have any questions.

Note Cube

A note cube I found on a blog I visit, www.paperpleasing.typepad.com. Her measurement is off somewhere so I had to adjust the pattern, but I really like it. I made a holder with some extra DSP on the back to hold my pen. This is going to a friend who got us into an attraction here with their discount card.
