Catching up

Been a few weeks since I posted, can't believe that February is already gone. Where did the time go?  The first thing I want to post is a picture of the little felt hearts I made for each one of my girls valentine bags.  I like to get them a heart of some sort (last year was heart shaped paperweights) this year, I handmade these cute little felt pillows.

The second picture is actually a picture of the present I made for my grandmother for Christmas. I made her a box of assorted cards for her to send out. Unfortunately, my grandmother passed away last week and sadly, I got the gift back. I know she liked the cards, she was just not able to use them.

I also went to the local (an hour away) scrapbook store for their monthly make-and-take card event. This month was general greeting cards. I made a couple of birthday cards and thinking of you cards.

I've already used the "quilt" looking card as a birthday card for my aunt.  The stores next make-and-take will be spring/Easter cards. It will be right after I return from spring break so not sure if I will be able to make that so, I better get busy making my own cards at home.

Going to Houston for spring break in a few weeks. My husband will be there on business so #3 daughter and I will be joining him. Hoping to get a trip to the Alamo. We'll have to see.

Finished just in time

Well, I did get out to the craft room Friday night, and knocked out the valentine cards for my 2 nephews and niece. Here they are:

I still have a birthday card to make for the month but that's not for another week.

Not such a successful weekend

Well, I started out the weekend quite ambitious but did not complete all the tasks. I did make the 2 Hope Your Feeling Better cards. I am really loving the paper from Authentique and would love to find a shop that carried the whole line.  The two scrapbook stores I do go to, carry just a few of them. For these two cards, I used the Uncommon line. I did make a card from the Loyal line but haven't decided what sentiment to make as the card is slightly masculine.

And when it came to my grandmother, I made her more of a project rather than a card. She loves when I attach the McGill flowers to her cards so, I took out my McGill punches and an aluminum mailbox I bought from Target years ago and created this.

The card reads, Sending you lots of love on your birthday.

And, here are the 4 valentine cards that daughter #1 and I made at the make-and-take at Scrapbook Art a couple of weeks ago.

I absolutely have to make my valentines for my nephews and niece tonight, but am thinking a couple of cards from above would do just fine.  I also need to make a card for an Aunt that will be having a birthday before the end of the month.
