Happy Mother’s Day!! For Mother’s Day, we decided to make cards that weren’t your average store-bought cards – which is great because we tend to disagree about what type of card to get (sappy v. silly). When I found this spinner card, I knew immediately that we could agree on crafting this card.
Crafting Cards – Z wrote messages on two cards while I wrote messages on two cards
However, I should really avoid crafting around this time of the year. With a ton of birthdays, Z in the middle of finals, and our seasonal allergies, my crafting took on an appearance that I can only imagine resembles the crafting of a mother who just realized that her child’s holiday party was two days away. It wasn’t pretty and there may have been pouting.
Finished card with envelope
The directions for the project are on the free printable from Farouche Shop. My two variations were using paper fasteners (instead of brads) and larger envelopes ( 6″ x 9″). Despite the frustrations while crafting, I love these cards and I hope that the recipients love them as much as we do.
When we came back from Florida (and Disney), I decided that I need to show our friends how much we care about them all year – not just at Christmastime or birthdays. This is just a little example of how I am showing some love to our friends this year.
Lucky Penny for St. Patrick’s Day!
A treasure at the end of the rainbow
Magnetic pot of gold
The cards are from a printable at Pumpkin Petunia’s blog and the magnetic tins were bought on sale at Michael’s.
Although we were on a budget this holiday season, I wanted to do something special for my co-workers. We have all worked so hard this year and everyone deserves a little something to know that they are in my thoughts this holiday season.
I found where someone had made Christmas candy grams with the phrase “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas” and jolly rancher candies — And I knew what my co-workers were getting!!
Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, co-workers!!
A little washi tape and some candy love!
Happy Holidays from Z and me! If I wasn’t able to send you a card in the mail, please accept my electronic wishes with pictures of our holiday cards.
