Baby swap cards!

One way to force yourself into getting some cards done is to join a swap. I do this through Splitcoaststampers. :-) It's a great way to get some cards done and then get some back in return. This swap's theme was baby cards. I signed up for two spots, so I had to make two different cards. Both cards are 100% SU! :-)

Now that I have these cards done, I need to decide what I'm making for our Parish auction which is coming up the first weekend in March. The first year I made a basket of 52 cards - for
"a card a week." Last year I made two baskets of like 30 cards each that were just all general cards and a coffee themed basket. So I need to put my thinking cap on and decide how ambitious I am going to be this year! I'd like to do another theme basket- and I'm thinking about cupcakes because they seem to be sooooooo "in" right now. Stay tuned to see what I get figured out!

Have a great week!

Handprint poster

I love my new Cricut Expression!! :-) I can use it to cut out letters for projects and activities we do for daycare!! So this posting isn't so much a craft as just a project we did that used my craft supplies!! lol I used the Cricut to cut out the letters and my SU! White Craft ink pad to do the handprints. I thought it turned out very cute!

Boo hoo!!!!

I'm pouting tonight because it's too cold to go out and do anything! lol I haven't left the house since Sunday. But that is an occupational hazard when you run a daycare from your home!! :-) DH took the boys to a Creighton basketball game tonight and gave me and DD strict instructions not to even think about leaving the house because 0ยบ F is too cold for girls to be out in. Well, you know what that means.....all I have been craving tonight has been a Starbucks mocha!!!!! lol Oh well. Instead, I have been using my time productively. I got a swap card done and DD has been playing the daycare's Sega Pico for the last hour.

I thought the swap card turned out cute. It's a coffee themed swap - which hasn't helped curb my desire for a mocha... But I thought the card turned out cute. Thanks for stopping by to look! Have a great week!!
