Mother's Day RAK

After a long day, I came home to some happy mail! :-)  My GF Brenda sent me this awesome Mother's Day RAK filled with some chocolate goodness.  Yes, I had to stash it so that my kids wouldn't get's mines all mines!  hehe!  Brenda is such a wonderful and thoughtful friend and I'm so grateful to have her in my life!  Thanks again Brenda!!

ETA: Not sure what happened.  I had this scheduled to post a while ago and only now realized it didn't.  So sorry Bren!

End of the School Year Teacher's Gift

My DS's last day of school was yesterday.  He will be moving on to first grade next school year and his little sister will be joining him at school as a kindergartener! :-)  Life will sure be different with both of them at school and mommy at home able to sit in front of the t.v. with some bon bons all day...LOL - YEAH RIGHT!  A mother's job is NEVER done and I know I will easily fill my days with things that need to get done!

ANYWAYS, here is what I made for his teachers.  He had two very awesome teacher's this year.  My DH and I loved them both and hope that our DD will be in their class next school year.  Unfortunately I didn't have too much time to dedicate to their gifts since we've been busy with graduations and other family events but I think these thank you cards will come in handy for them.

Now let summer vacation begin!  Both my babies will be home with me for the summer so I have been trying to line up some fun stuff for us to do.  Snooze at the Zoo, camping, beach days, and park days have all been added to the list.  I can't wait to start getting my house back in order too!  :-)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Mother's Day Cards

 Here are some Mother's Day cards that I made for my MIL and DM.  I used the sliding pop-up card tutorial on SCS for these super quick and easy to put together...which is just my speed especially since I didn't start putting these together until I woke up on Mother's Day. (YIKES!)

This is the card I made for my MIL.  My DH and my SIL decided to give her a joint gift.  She loved both her gift and card!

This is the card I made for my DM.  I used the same stamp set for both cards because both my MIL and my DM have similar hair styles to this image. :-)
I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Teacher's Appreciation Day Gifts

My DS's teachers work so hard managing 42 children 5 days a week that I wanted to make sure that my he game them a little something for Teacher's Appreciation Day today. I didn't have much time to put something together since I had a paper due for my class and with the busy weekend we had I wasn't able to work on it until last night! ( about procrastination). Luckily I had picked up some extra supplies to put these magnetic boards together...these came together in minutes! If I had had more time, I probably would have dressed them up a bit more....but I think they're cute enough even without the added embellishments. :-)

Here's the little note my son wrote for his teacher...I made the magnets with matching cherries paper - so super fast!
Thank you for taking time to stop by my blog! Hope you had a great day!

Birthday at the Zoo

My son was invited to a birthday party at the zoo this was a night time, Twilight Tour party. My DH accompanied him and said that it was a really good tour. They were able to see lots of animals and the kids all had such a great time. Anyways, here is the card I made for the birthday boy.

First Birthday Card

My family and I attended a first birthday party this weekend...unfortunately I COMPLETELY forgot that I needed a card for it. So I had to throw something together before we left for the party that morning. Good thing I already had this Hello Kitty cut out and assembled...made putting this card together so much more faster!
Hope you had a great weekend...thanks for stopping by!
