Happy Birthday Trio

These are from a batch I was making to use up a box of pre-printed cards I have. I actually have two boxes of them, so you will be seeing lots more of these quick and easy cards. The image is an old SU! set that has great stamps for all occasions. I still love it, and it was one of my first sets.

Quick and easy is my MO these days! I hope you are enjoying the last days of summer, and getting your kids ready for school (if you have them). Thanks for looking!

Pretty Butterflies

I found more time for the craft room this week and was in the mood to make some simple pretty cards. I have a stash of punched butterflies that were a RAK and found this old Miss Elizabeth's paper from the dollar store from the same color family. All I had to do was trim the 12x12 sheet into 4 x 5 1/4 layers and mount those on a sheet of vanilla cs. The butterflies have pearls on them and are glued on the swirls. The sentiments are from MFT, stamped in Taken With Teal.

That's it. I'm still easing my way back into crafting. Justin started school Monday so Carter and I are trying to find our new routine. I am trying to wean him and had to shift his naps to accommodate picking up Justin from the bus stop, so it's been an interesting couple of days. We'll get there...

Hope you are all enjoying your Wednesday! Thanks for looking!

Oh, My Am I Rusty!

FINALLY today I had some time to come and play in my new craft room, and it took me forever to crank out this simple Thank You card. Yikes! Good thing Justin starts school tomorrow so I can get some stamp time in during Carter's naps and get the creative juices flowing again. I feel like I'm starting all over again, although this time I have cooler toys to play with :)

The sketch I used is the CPS sketch from this week. The stamp is from SU! Very Thankful and is colored with markers. The dp is from my scrap pile and the ribbons are some from the Target dollar spot. Since the last few months have been so crazy, I have a ton of new toys that have arrived and that I have not had time to play with yet. Hopefully, like I said, I will get to play during nap times.

Carter turned one yesterday, and here he is enjoying his birthday cupcake! Thanks for looking!

Vintage Vogue Again!

I made this in my old craft room before it got packed up. I was on a Vintage Vogue kick and was using up the bits I had out. I love this color scheme, too. What doesn't look good with kraft?

I had my stamp room unpacked here in the new house and finally might have had time to get crafty this weekend. However, I booked painters to start tomorrow, so had to pack it up again! Next week, I WILL stamp! I will, I will! We are finally settled enough that I don't have to spend the evenings putting things in their new places. I will post pics of the new space when it is done by the end of the week.

I hope some of you are still with me. Leave me a comment if you're out there! I miss the blogland!! Thanks for looking :)
