thank you for always being there

Hi!  I finally made another box card!  I've come to realize that I only have a couple hours a day if I'm lucky to craft or work on my Etsy shop.  And sometimes I procrastinate so those 2 hours probably decrease down a lot! 

So this box card features the cute hedgehogs from Birdie Brown at MFT.  The sentiment is a combination from Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant.  While I think these box cards are cute and fun, sometimes it takes a bit of time to align correctly so that it will fold nicely.  The first 2 I made came out really easy but for some reason I think I wasn't liking these up nicely and so it would lay flat one way but not really the other.

But I think I got it now.  In any case, I need to take the time to align the sides carefully.  My plan is to make 3 more of these box cards.  Haha, I always have plans but they don't always happen. 

By the way, I restocked the snowflakes and maple leaves in my shop.  In case you want to start prepping for Christmas.  Is it too early?  I've already bought 2018 calendars from Taylored Expressions.  Wish me luck that I'll make calendars early this year. 

Thanks for visiting!

graduation cards

Hi all!  I made a bunch of graduation cards in different colors.  These took me a while to finish in between packing confetti!  I love to make all sorts of things but it's getting harder to find the time.  And sometimes I'm just too tired!

I made these graduation cards before.  This image is from Sister Stamps.  Do you guys miss them?  They put out a lot of great images like this one. 

I colored them up differently in black, blue, red and green.  Are those the most popular school colors? 

Here is a slightly different design using the year instead of congrats.

Here's the green version.

That's it for now.  My plan is to make more box cards today (and pack more confetti).  Hopefully it'll be a productive day.

Thanks for stopping by!
