This is for a good friend of mine
This is for my nephew Deion…I almost cried making it because I can’t believe he’s already 15!! I remember like yesterday taking him for show and tell in elementary school when he was first born! LOL…(I wrote that in his card )
And just cuz I’m so proud of him and think he’s so adorable…here’s a pic of him. Lol. I had to blank out his half-sisters face cuz I don’t want to ask her Mom’s permission to post her.
This card is for one of the daycare kid’s grandpa’s….we know him really well since he does a lot of the picking up…well the other day he was working in his yard and fell off a ladder, shattering his ankle…he has been in surgery and isn’t allowed on it for 3 months :s …thank goodness it was “only” his ankle though at his age! And I thanked God for keeping his wife home that day…because she should have been at her usual art class but decided to stay home that day…otherwise he would’ve been alone for hours!
anyway the colour is actually a nice bright green but I took the pic at night. lol
I also made this ABC book for my sister’s unborn baby…she is due in September…they are doing a Sesame Street theme and so I made some just normal abc stuff and some Sesame Street characters It was fun to make
This is a banner I made for the baby shower but she wants to put it up in the nursery too….that’s actually the baby’s last name, since she said they wont finalize a name until the baby is born. Lol
This is the invite I made (I’ve done 25)…they are super simple cuz I just colour copied the little pic
Sadie I have to get the kids up from nap now but (if you want) I will email these to you to see after. I will wait until i hear from you though cuz I might take up your whole inbox. lol
Awesome work, Karen! Great ideas - I love your nephew's card - time sure flies, doesn't it? You inspire me... I need to do a book for Journi because she consistently goes into my scrapbooks to look at all the pictures. Time for her to look at a book just for her!

It's 1:30am, so I can't give a proper response to this. Gotta get the little one back to bed. But I've got to say, THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving me the perfect idea for Sarah's baby shower! I looooooooooooooove that banner soooo much! The ABC book too!! I just checked two things off my to do list. Now I just gotta MAKE them. haha The ABC book must've taken forever with all the character piecing, but I love it! She will treasure it.
The Congratulations card is beautiful and i love the card for your nephew. He's old enough now to appreciate those words you wrote to him. Sweet! And the doctor on the Get Well card is a great idea! I'll be lifting that for sure! Especially on a guy's Get Well...I'm always stuck for ideas there.
Can I just say that your floor is way too clean for you having 7 kids running around your house each day?????? :P

I'm with Charys...awesome stuff here girl! LOVE those cards, and that little dr. on the get well card is such a neat idea and he's so cute. Love the lettering on the congrats card too.
That ABC book is awesome! My kids would LOVE that and I really need to get on the ball and make something like this for them. She will treasure that gift I'm sure. The banner is really cool also and so are the invites. You have been super busy it seems.

where do you find the time?! I just let out a big sigh. Seeing all of the productivity from women who are just as busy as me makes me wonder why I can't get any crafty work done. Another sigh. okay, self pity party over.
these are great! Love the card for your nephew, he is one handsome boy!!!! and the Sesame Street stuff is terrific!!!!!! the invites are adorable. and I really like the card for the grandpa, I hope he heals quickly and that the 3 months isn't torture for him.

LOL at our floors...well, first of all, that's take in my scrap room...which the kids don't dare enter ...and our carpets stay pretty clean anyway ...cuz we don't allow shoes past the front door, their food ALWAYS stays at the kitchen table, and same for craft stuff, playdough, etc...our kitchen floor is always needing mopping though. lol
