All boxed up...

A while ago, I made these boxes. I got carried away and made a lot of these boxes. :)

Here I show the front and the backs. They are nice for recipes, to do lists, phone contacts, etc.

Created some RAKs

RAK = Random Act of Kindness... mailing out a RAK card to someone in need of a smile.

1. A friend just became a grandma of a baby boy, so I made her and hubby this card. I love creating Stampscapes and thought this stork was perfect! Love the blue blankie. :)

2. A "pick me up" card for a friend that was just not having a great day... or week...

3. & 4. A group of cards I made for some friends. This is packaged up, wrapped and ready to give them as a gift of thanks. Each card is the same as far as stamp and punch used, but made 4 of each in a total of 5 different colors. Inside is folded copy paper, lightly glued into place and blank... so they can write whatever personal note they want.

My daughter has learned early...

...that making and sending a thank you card after she receives a gift is mandatory.

I can't believe she just turned three last weekend and these were the cards "we" created for thank you's. We made two dozen of them.

Three balloons for her 3rd birthday and the "thanks a bunch" stamp worked well, I thought with the bunch of balloons.

Inside are hand written notes of thanks and then she signs them along with a heart and a smiley face. She sits down at her table and gets busy. She loves "signing" her name... :)

Busy, busy time!

It's been a busy time here but a "good busy"... Celebrated my birthday and in a couple of more days we will be celebrating my daughter's third birthday. Three already! I can' believe it.

Went to Disney World to celebrate my birthday, which fell on Easter this year. That was a bunch of fun!

Had a day where I had a 101.2* fever that just knocked me off of my feet. Slowly getting back to normal from that. Maybe I had too much fun over the weekend?! LOL

I have gotten a lot of stamping done. I just haven't been able to take pictures of them all and get them uploaded... but I will. Here's one for now and off to bed.

I made these cards as a thank you to all who gave me a pledge for my climb... I thought the stamped image was fitting. :) These will go out in the mail by this weekend.
