Card a Day 2

I was one busy crafting bee today! I made not one - but TWO cards! YIPPEE!!

After hearing that one of my team members had her baby on Nov 14th, and my other downline was in labor as of yesterday, I decided to make them congratulations cards. Both of these ladies were expecting boys, so I made two identical Riley the Moose cards as seen below.

Riley stamps can be found at Hannah Stamps and the "happy birthday" stamps are from this little cupcake set I picked up here. I also used my copic markers to color the images. The paper is all CTMH - Indian Corn Blue, Goldrush and Autumn Terracotta CS, and patterned paper from the Free Spirit Kit. I used my nestabilities and cuttlebug to cut the scallops and emboss, respectively.The other project I tacked today was my annual "Sammie" book. Normally these are hand scrapped, but time and money are tight this year, so I made the pages digitally using the Flea Market "Piece of Cake Album" from the Shabby Shoppe (courtesey of my friend Christine who gave me a gift cert. for my birthday!). I was able to get 19 of 20 pages done with the kit today.

Here is a sample page. I can't show off the whole thing, as many of the people receiving this album read my blog, and I'd like it to be somewhat of a surprise.


The only page left is for Sammie's Santa picture. We tried to get it done this evening, but THAT is a saga I don't care to get into tonight. All I can say is that Santa's "helpers" should try and be more HELPFUL and not so snarky.

Cute card Nona! And the scrapbook page is lovely! I just love that pic of Sammie, she's such a sweetie!

Happy (belated) Birthday! Sorry I missed you on Saturday :0( Nate had made plans before I knew about your party, and I couldn't get away. I'm looking forward to seeing you next week though!

I love the Rileys! Great coloring on those too, btw.
I love your Sammie page. Aren't the Piece of Cake albums nice? I love the colors in this one. And that is a great pic of your Sammie!

Sorry to hear about those snarky Santas helpers. Would have been nice to have that pic taken when you were ready to take it.

Nona - These are beautiful, as usual! Just also wanted to let you know the link to Hannah Stamps is incorrect, it's actually Hannastamps.com. I did a search since I was determined to find those cute stamps!
