You Can Never Have Too Many

I'm going to be whipping up some more thank you cards to keep on-hand. It seems there's always a chance to use them. This is one I made using some scraps I had, for the end-of-the-year card for one of my kids' teachers.

Babies, Babies, Everywhere!

There are so many new babies coming into the world to people I have the privilege of knowing! You know what that means? More cards! Lots and lots of baby cards. I made these with a special someone in mind who I believe likes simple. So here they are, simple baby cards.

Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a great Mother's day, whether you are a mom, or just spent it thinking of your mom and the other wonderful ladies in your life. We've had a full house for the last couple weeks with nearly all of my siblings(only one of my sisters was missing) and their families, and my mom in town for a visit. It made for a great mother's day for me!

I altered a box for my Mom for her gift this year. The great thing about this box is that the flower on the lower left was made by my daughter in school a few years back. It was originally a pin. So it's actually got a touch of both her and me in it's creation. My mom tells me she's going to keep the photos she's working on in it. I also made her and my MIL both cards for the occasion. My mom's is the "You" card, and my MIL's is the "Mom" card.

We took a nice walk with the kids and saw a few wild flowers, and more than a few slugs. The last photos I leave you with today, show a glimpse of Seattle wildflowers in the spring time. Even on the sunny days, there are reminders of rain.
