Secret Message Card

I watched a video tutorial on this type of secret message card on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and just had to make one. Since my dad's birthday is next week and he gets a kick out of the interactive cards I make for him, I decided this would be perfect for him. I decided to use stickers to embellish his card since I found this super cute sticker set and thought it would be perfect for my dad's card since he loves fishing and camping! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying this long weekend!

End of the School Year Gifts

I got my "Create a Critter" Cricuit cartridge around the same time that I was trying to figure out what to make for end of the school year gifts for my son's preschool teachers. I just fell in love with that cartridge from the time I started seeing sneak previews of this cartridge on other blogs. So of course when I finally got it, I just had to start using it!! I decided to make a set of cards for my son's teachers. And then I was trying to figure out how to wrap them up when I stumbled across Joy's Mother's Day gift post and my problem was instantly solved...thanks Joy!! :-)

I decided to add a laminated tag to the totes to add a personalized touch to their gifts
Each of the totes contained 6 (simple) thank you cards and envelopes
The inside of the totes were plain, since I used one sided DP, so I decided to use DP for the the pockets
I can't believe my son is graduating from preschool already...he's going to be starting kindergarten soon!!! (sniff, sniff) Man, they really do grow up SO fast!!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope your week is off to a good start!!

Thank You Elena

I recently won one of Elena's blogaversary giveaways!! I was so excited when it came in the mail the other day! I absolutely love the little Hello Kitty bag that Elena even has a plastic liner! My DH thought the "Craftaholics Anonymous" was quite appropriate and started chuckling when I showed it to him. Elena is so talented...if you haven't visited her blog yet, please go check it out now. You'll be glad that you did!

Below is the thank you card I made for Elena. Thank you again Elena...I LOVE my bags!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope all you mom's out there have a wonderful Mother's day!
