Getting Crafty

You can always tell when Kevin is not traveling because I'm not posting. In the past week we have been busy. We have taken down the Christmas decor, cleaned and organized the house, sorted through the girls clothes they can't wear anymore (making room for their new clothes), sorted through the toys (and throw away some, don't tell Aundrea), organized the girls rooms and did a little home decor. (I'll post pics later) Oh, and Aundrea started back to school. Yeah!!!

Since we cleaned and organized I have been able to get into my craft room and make some cards and not feel guilty about doing it. The first card I made for a friends birthday. I cased it from one of the cards I made at Emily's card workshop several months ago. The card Emily had us make we used rhinestone brads. I didn't have any so I covered mine in glitter to give the card some sparkle. It's hard to see in the pic so that is why I tried to get a close up. The second card is for an old friend of the my family's that had open heart surgery today. Please say a prayer for him, he does not have much family. I have known him since I was a little girl and he is very active in my home church. I cased this card from the stampin techniques book that comes with
Stampin' Up orders. I love when envelops match the cards, they look so customized.
I'm off to watch a movie. Thanks for looking!!!
