A Quick Thank You Card

I was asked by a friend if I could help her make a card to put a bunch of little notes that the young children in our church had written to thank the people that had put together a pankcake breakfast for the kids. So we took the notes and bound them with my bind it all and then I made this card to go with it!
I used Robyn's Family and Friends stamp set for the "Thank You"
My paper and ribbon are from Papertrey Ink and my other stamps are from Stampin' Up.

I love the Valentine's day goodie bags. I also just finished making 40+ Valentine's for my DD (6) to handout today. She was supposed to help me but really only supervised. Thanks for sharing. 

I have emailed you so check your inbox!!


The last two days have been crazy!!
I had a very busy but nice Valentines day! I was able to go to dinner and a movie with my husband, and he had a couple of nice surprises for me so that was fun! The kids really enjoyed their Valentines and they liked helping me do some fun little things for my husband.  
Yesterday was my little boy's birthday! He is now 3 and the time has gone by so fast!!!! We had lots of fun yesterday just the two of us and then had fun opening presents and eating cake when daddy got home! 
Now I am debating nap or more laundry???

Happy Valentines Day!!

Happy Valentines to you all!! 
It was so nice to have Robyn here for the weekend but it was too quick of a trip! We had lots of "fun" down at my husbands office LOL!!  

Today is a busy Valentines day for me but I thought I would share a cute idea and what we did for my daughters Valentines for her class. I also thought I would share some love and do a giveaway!!!

This cute idea I can not claim to be mine but it was so cute I thought you would all enjoy it.  I must thank Keely for this cute Valentine and idea! 

Such a cute project with a can of Crush soda, cute ribbon and a little tag!!

My daughter really wanted to make her Valentines and be a big helper to me! So we came up with something real easy that she could do most of. She helped me put all of the items that she had chosen in the bag ( I arranged them) She helped me staple the bags closed and she helped me put the hearts on as well as she wrote the name on the hearts. She even made an extra one for her brother! How nice!!! 
I cut the hearts at 1 3/4 inches and used my Sweethearts cart. I used Robyn's Happiest Moments stamp set for my "Happy Valentines Day" stamp.  We wrote the name of the person it was to in the red heart and my daughters name on the dark pink heart. She loved them and I was glad that she was able to help so much!!!

So how about a Valentines Giveaway??

Everyday Life Stamp set by Robyn (My Pink Stamper) 
Thanks Robyn!

Thanks for all the love and support you show to Robyn and I on our websites! I hope you have a great day today!

Some cute Valentines Ideas

 Each month I get to go to a get together and scrapbook. Our host always has a packet of a couple of projects for us. I really enjoy this because it helps her out, I get to scrapbook!!!, hang out with other women/moms and I get new ideas! So thanks for the ideas Kristy!
Here is what we did this month. 

I changed this one up a little bit from her version because I didn't get to stay at this get together.  My babysitting fell thru so I put these together at my house and I didn't have the same stamps.

 I thought this was a fun variation of a card. This is what it looks like partially open.

This is what it looks like closed.

A cute 2 page layout!!

The hearts that make the leaves are all cut out.
She used a punch but I am sure that you can use all of the different hearts in the Cricut carts and cut them at different sizes.

Hope that you enjoy these ideas, and they spark some ideas in you!

Thanks for the chance to win a great cart!!

Yesterday school got canceled so I had both my kiddos home! I grew up in a lot of snow so I had to laugh at our "snow"day. This is what it looked like outside yesterday morning. All of the sidewalks, driveways, roads, etc were melted by the afternoon! I must say that I think there are a lot of dirt road areas in our school district so I think that is why they canceled school but we made the best of the day. We got all of our supplies for our Valentines for my daughters class and daddy got to come home early from work so we got to hang out with him, and that was fun!!

I feel like I have been missing for a week!!! This last week has been a crazy one for me!!
On Monday I had to take Robyn to the Airport a whole day early :( and then I went to CHA and tried to be her for the day! Ha ha big shoes to fill!! Tuesday I had to figure out how I was getting everything "extra" home and then head to the airport and fly home. Besides being delayed in Denver for about an hour and being freezing cold waiting for the plane and on the plane my travels went well. 

Wednesday morning I awoke and this was my surprise!!!  My daughter had set up a book fair in her room for me to attend ( I had just organized all of her books before I had left town! LOL!!) So cute!!

Wednesday was filled with appointments and writing a 3 minute presentation and making 15 bracelets and these goodie bags to go with the presentation and the bracelets. I did use Robyn's new More Faithful Sayings stamp set! My close ups would not focus :( but the tops read "The ball is in your court! Play the "game" of life with... Integrity" The bracelets were black beads with a soccer bead and a baseball bead! I forgot to take a picture but my daughter wants one and so I will post a pic when I do her bracelet. 

Thursday and Friday I was a cleaning and laundry manic!! I think my family wore every piece of clothing they had while I was gone LOL I felt like I was swimming in Laundry!!!!
Today was the day to catch up on bills, organizing and office stuff! I got most of my "to do's" done and now I am feeling caught back up!! So tomorrow I will be relaxing and watching the Superbowl!  
Make sure to check back on Monday, I have a nice little something planned!!!

Last but not least I wanted to share a picture that my daughter drew!! 
Cricut you are welcomed and loved in our house!!!!
