Another big batch

Well thank you notes were the order of the day the last few days. Mom was all in to her cuttlebug that we gave her for Christmas. Lots of folders and she is all set. Here are the cards we have made.

Here is the whole pile.

Here are mine.

I got this set of dog stamps from mom for Christmas because the reminded her of Delilah. They were so much fun. I used them to make Delilah's thank you notes. I think in terms of number of gifts, she got more than I did :)

I made this one for a couple that we are having dinner with tonight. It is their anniversary.

Here are some thinking of you / sympathy cards I made. I love that embossing folder. I might have to get one.

Here are some more thank you notes.

Here are Mom's cards. I like what she did with my initial stamps.

Here is a thank you note.

This last one is her first Valentines day card.

Birthday cards mom made.

Hope you all have a great end to the new year.

Been way too long

My camera broke and I got out of the habit of taking pictures and posting cards. Here area few catch up cards from the fall as well as a whole batch Mom and I made in the last few days.

I got on a bright and happy pink kick for a while this fall. Nothing says happy like monkey cards. Here is a sample of them.

I also started the task of filling my sister-in-laws box of cards. Here are some of the more masculine cards for the set.

I also made her this pretty set of simple thank you notes.

Here are the cards from Mom and I this weekend. I love stamping with her over the holidays.

Here are some closer looks at my cards.

I found this happy hopper stamp in the clearance bin. I was not sure what I would do with it, but I really like how it turned out. It took the words from a pun stamp set from StampIn Up. The result should be a good Congratulations or Way to Go card.

This was in the sale bin too. Love the mice!!

I found the paper for the next two sets in Mom's stash of paper. The papers were so pretty the cards come together easily.

Here are some of Mom's. I love the flower on this and the way she made the tag effect with the ribbon.

Simple, cute and fun. They are even better in person where you can really see the dimension and glitter.

I like these two cards. We were playing with the different looks of markers and water color pencils. Both are great.

These are some of the cool cards my Mom has made this year. I wanted to copy some of the layouts at home, so I snapped some pictures. I thought I would share them as well.

I love this first layout. Too cute. I have most of these things and would have never thought of doing this.

The lighting does not show this one off well. It is a stunning card all in purples.

This one is a work of art. All of those flowers are punched out and glued on. A little glitter in each one. It looks great!!!
