A little crafty break!

Hi!  I finally managed to squeeze a few minutes from my week to get something posted!  Our spring has been so much more busy than I had ever imagined!

DD1 decided this year that she wanted to go back to playing softball and found herself as the starting right fielder of the varsity softball team.  She is so committed to keeping that position and has not missed a practice, and they practice 6 days a week! DD2 started playing tennis this spring and has been doing really well for her first year.  She has practices 5 days a week.  Add to this DD1's weekly voice lesson and my job, and there is very little free time for Mama...  I am really looking forward to summer vacation!

Earlier this month, I did manage to sneak away from my responsibilities to attend a Relay for Life sponsored crop.  It was so nice to have a morning and afternoon to create and visit with other crafty people and OH MY WORD-the FOOD!!!  They even came around with snacks every so often so we didn't have to leave our spots!!  I felt very spoiled!

I was in desperate need of birthday cards so I managed to get quite a few made.  Since I was at a crop, I only had a few different designs so I wouldn't have to bring all of my goodies along.  I made 8 of this design...

Unfortunately, I did not list my supplies and didn't have time to pull things back out and look so I don't have the name of the sentiment stamp.  The cardstock is pool party and everything else is retired product.

I also took along a Paper Pumpkin kit I kept meaning to put together.  I made four of these...

While I am really enjoying watching my girls (they will be gone before I know it...), I am a little sad that I'm not able to visit all of my wonderful blog friends.  I am looking forward to summer vacation when I can stay up til the wee hours of the morning catching up on everything!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you (or at least your blog) soon!!


  1. Margaret, both are fabulous! I love the big flower on the first card and all the patterned paper in the second one.They're great.

    Spend as much time with the kids as you can because like you said, they grow up fast. Good luck to your daughter and her softball team too. Those are always fun to watch. Also, good luck to your other daughter and tennis. Fun game also!


  2. Woohoo, way to go getting so many cards completed. One of these days I'll break down and get that "postage stamp" punch.........

  3. Wonderful cards, and do spend as much quality time with the girls, you will have time later to catch up, we all know you are peeking in when you can.
    Hugs Cindy
