The One I Almost Missed

With Bugaboo being on vacation, I have to admit I almost forgot to post my project for today.  I made these for my youngest sons' teachers before school was out and saved them to post later (which is now) Sometimes I have the hardest time coming up with ABC (anything but a card) projects.

I picked up these felt baskets at an after Easter sale at Hobby Lobby (can you say 90% off) and made medallion flowers, then I used the Mini Set-Animal Sentiments for the center.

His Teachers LOVED them, I was so happy to give them just a little something to let them know how much we appreciated them.  Now I hope we will be as lucky this year

Summertime is Almost Over

I am really sad, summer is almost over and I had so many plans for the kids and I.  I am SO not ready for the sun to go away. One of the things we try to do every summer is take the kids to the drive in so I am hoping we still get time to squeeze that in before the rain starts.

Today at The Paper Nest Dolls is the start of a new challenge and the theme this week is "anything goes"  which also means "not excuses" so lets see your cards!

Of course we always have our Top 3 which will be chosen by our amazing design team and any image can be used to be eligible for Top 3 and each of our top 3 winners will receive a digi stamp of their choice from the Paper Nest store and you have until Aug 1st to play along...


My card I went with Poodle Skirt Avery, which reminds me of days of drive ins and soda shops.
