A whole bunch of cards

Ok today I have a whole bunch of cards to share, just stuff I have made for a variety of reasons.
This first one is for my sons teacher. 

You see my boys switched schools this year and although my eldest is happy as a pig in mud, my youngest is really struggling to make new friends and not having an easy time with the new routine. I have tried a few things to help him out, first I tried to essentially bribe the class by letting him hand out these little treats, they are little meringue kisses. I know that is a bit low, but the teacher would not let me give them out anyways,  in case there were any egg allergies.......dang.

So next up I made him these little playdate cards. The teacher did not feel comfortable collecting the kids phone numbers to help facilitate playdates and friendships. So instead I made these cards that my son could give to the kids he liked. Inside it invites the child to our house to play and asks the Mom to contact me at the number provided. I am really hoping this will help my baby boy develop friendships more quickly. 

Last year I made this card for a Joanne's Core'dinations display, I created the cut file for the tea cup with my Klic n kut.

and last week I created this one, based on the first one. I just changed the cut file to look like a coffee mug, by elongating the design.

This is another one that I did for Joanne's

Well that's it for today

Well has been a ridiculously long time since my last post. What can I say life happens, and I am ok with that. It means life is full. The kids went back to school last week and we are now falling back into a fall routine. Classic! Yesterday I found some time to scrap, it was so soothing to just dive into this some what complex layout. I wanted it to look simple, but really there is a lot going on. I used my Klic n Kut to create the Core'dinations yellow background and then used a circle punch to punch out a variety of patterns from a whole bunch of  October Afternoon collections. Then measured equally around the perimeter and sewed in the diamonds.

With the sequins, I was hoping to convey movement, seeing as baby girl is now a going concern and is on the run.

I have missed scrapping. I am still working on the new house, it is a long process when you DIY. It has become somewhat a weekend warrior project, that doesn't leave much time or creative energy for my beloved hobby. But the good news is that it now has heat and power. So we are that much closer to a HOME.

Thanks for sticking with me friends.
