❤ You

Hi!  Life is as crazy as ever.  I wanted to post this morning before we took our kids to a local carnival but didn't get a chance to.  At least we still made it to the carnival.  Same yummy food every year especially malasadas and Portuguese bean soup!  The kids had fun on rides and playing games. 

I made a little card for TGF's Monday Funday #18--Key to my heart.  It was inspired by the word card tutorial over at SCS except I ended up not making it exactly like a word card.

I decided not to cut around the letters like in the tutorial and just made this into like an accordion style fold.  I cut out a felt heart for the middle of the O using MFT's heart die.

This image is a combination of TGF's Megan and Birthday Ian.  I wiped away the letters on the banner, paper pieced it and added felt hearts.

Still trying to use all the stamps I've been neglecting.  So far I'm doing well with my no new stamps diet.

Now I'm wondering what I should do with all these cards I'm making.  I know you can donate them and usually I give them to my cousin who gives them to her friends.  I'm thinking about just having my hubby take them to his work place and donate them to his coworkers.  What do you do with all your cards??

Thanks for reading!

This is soooo cute, Eva! I don't even know how you put that banner on her, but it's fantastic! I love the folds and the big letters. Really great job!

I took some of the cards I had left over at the end of the year and put them into a tin as a gift for my mother-in-law. I don't really know what to do with all of mine either, but I can't stop making them! I am actually trying to get caught up on my girls' scrapbooks, and hopefully that will keep my card pile down to a minimum.(probably not.)

Adorable as ever, Eva! Love your coloring and the accordion style! Sounds like you had a blast at the carnival! I use some of my cards or my DH does. The ones really specific to the image are tougher - I usually send some of those to my crafty blog friends who "get it" kwim? LOL.

Another cute card! Cute banner and neat idea with the big YOU. Awww, I miss those malasadas, now that you mention it!

Super cute! Love the accordion card and the colors! I usually run outta cards! But that's because I have tons of co-workers! And I also am in charge for making cards at work - whether it's for a patient or a co-worker w/ a big life event (wedding, new baby, sympathy). I suggest you donate them to a school or a hospital or convalescent home. I also send them to a few bloggy friends I've gotten 'close' to over the years (*ahem*) :).
