Day 1 and 2 of #acardadayinmay

Ok so I got a little behind on posting for this campaign but I have been participating and I am loving it!!!

(As much as I have wanted to make a card for everyday I am being realistic and know that I just don't have the time to do that so I have been using card that I have made in the past! This does a couple of things for me.... #1- Saves me time.... #2 Allows me to participate....#3 Makes me use some of the 7 (yes I said 7) shoeboxes full of cards that I have stashed up from the years! (I can never just make 1 card at a time so all the duplicates go in a shoe box!!!!)

This is my Day 1 card!!   This card went to the Secretary at my kids school! It is a card from one of the Paper Pumpkin Kits! I love these kits!! It is SO fun to get mail each month with a fun surprise in it!!! Sometimes when my creative juices just are not wanting to work with me but I really want to make something.... I just pull out my Paper Pumpkin kit and make something!! It is great!! 

Day 2 Card(s)- These cards are going to some ladies in my church! I had 2 of them in envelopes before I remembered to take a picture... whoops!! So you get to see 2 of the 4! These are from a kit from the Stampin' Up 2014-2015 Annual Catalog!!! I love the kits in the catalogs for the same reason that I love Paper Pumpkin... so handy when I don't have the time or energy to use my creative juices but want to make something!

Wow! I feel like I have really been Missing In Action from my blog!!! I have! It has been almost a year since I posted last..... YIKES!!!!!!!!  If you are a follower of Robyn's you might know that I haven't totally been off the grid but if your not I'll give you a little update! 

I joined Stampin' Up as a Demonstrator a year ago! I have been a customer for years and through a series of events I decided that I wanted to become a demonstrator for the discount... little did I know what a Journey that would lead me on! I am loving being a demonstrator and all the new wonderful people I am getting to know but the best of all is that I am still getting to enjoy this with my BFF Robyn!!!!! 

So besides that I have been coaching volleyball at one of the High Schools in town, raising my 3 beautiful kids and running them around to all of there different activities! (Sometimes I feel like a taxi cab) 

I have still been crafting and creating and most of the time I do take pictures..... I just never get them posted! So I have a goal to do better!!!! Wish me luck!!! 

Something that I think can really get me back in the swing of things is Robyn's awesome May campaign!! Its #acardadayinmay  I think this is such an awesome opportunity to spread love!! Below is what she posted on her blog to introduce the campaign.... will you join us??

A Card A Day in May!

I'm so excited to announce my May campaign that I am extending to all my stamping friends, customers, and viewers!  I am challenging you to make and send a card to someone EVERY DAY in MAY!  It will only cost you a book and a half of postage stamps if you send them in the mail!  Think of how many lives we can brighten by not only making homemade cards but also giving them away!  Look for opportunities to reach out to others......  Birthdays, Mother's Day, new baby, new job, thinking of you, with sympathy, love you, good luck, you did it, ETC.!!

My goal:  That we send out or give out 1000 cards in the month of May!!  

If you are on board, simply share your project on your social media outlets using #acardadayinmay !  I will be checking on Instagram under that hashtag every single day!  Instagram @robynstamps 


To make this a super fun & exciting event, I am going to give away a STAMP SET EVERY day in May!  You do not have to participate in #acardadayinmay to win the stamp set!  I will post the giveaway one day and announce the winner the following day while announcing the new giveaway.  So.....  you need to check here EVERY DAY!!  You will see a new card and who I am giving or sending it to along with some videos.  I hope you will join me!!  Let's change lives & make this world a better place.....  one card at a time!

We start this Sunday, May 1st!  I will be making a card or more than one card to give to some ladies in my church.  What are you going to do?!
