Communication is Key.....

This morning Sean told me......

"Oh, yeah, when I talked to mom the other day....(meaning Saturday!) she told me my Great Aunt's Birthday is coming up.

Me: Oh, yeah?

Him: Yes, and I just wanted to say, You know that I really, really, really, love you? Right?

Me: Yeah, but, what are you wanting me to do????

Him: Oh, well, since you asked.....My GA just wants a 'Card Party' instead of an actual party or with presents or anything.......so......could you make her a couple of cards?.......She needs them by Saturday.

Me: Uh, sure......You do realize it takes 2 days for the mail to get to her? and I still have to take care of the kids while I make the cards? and she probably won't get her cards till Monday now...because I'm probably gonna miss the mail today!!

Him: So you'll make them then?

Me: Sure, but I'm not promising ANYTHING else will get done today!! :)


So....this is what I came up with.......
The cupcake one is from the girls and the second one is from Sean and I.
Cute, Huh? Nothing like spur of the momentness to get something done!!

I know I haven't formally come out and said it.....but I am a Consultant for Close To My Heart and I used left overs from their 'Tickled Pink' Scrabooking Kit. It already has the glitter on the pages!! *giggle* (For the card on the right)

I NEVER thought in my whole life I would be so super duper excited about glitter. But I am!!

The cupcake card was made with the 'Daydream' Kit.

Super cute too if you are in to the whole 'Princesses and Pink' thing like I am!!

And while I was at it, I thought I'd make a couple of Birthday cards for my Bestie's little boy's birthdays that I missed awhile back.

I really enjoyed making these. I hope I can keep it up..........Yeah, Right!!

I like! Super cute!

Hey, how can I place an order with you. I have a few things I want. Will you send me a catalog? Or do you have a website?

Oh man are those cute! I heart glitter too. Maybe we should start a club.

Jen said...

Wow, those are some awesome cards!

Andrea said...

Wow, I admire you - I would love to be able to do stuff like this! How creative!!!! Also thank you for the comment on my blog. I agree, I really do feel our babysitter was meant to be. In fact, I mentioned to my husband recently (because as I've gotten to know her really well now and realize she is perfect for us), I think that if any of the other babysitters had had an opening I may have chosen the wrong one, so this was the way to make sure we'd get the right one! :) Anyway, have a great week!

I love it when my husband springs something like that on me. Oh man, I just remembered something he asked me to do today that I spaced. UGH.

The cards are really cute.
