Le card making

After a year and a half of intense planning, my mother in law and I finally got together to make some greeting cards. We've done this one other time, in March 2008 with great success, and it was always our plan to do it again "really soon". Yeah, we suck at "really soon".
For my birthday (last August!) she bought me this stamp set I'd admired, and today I finally got to use it! (Carte Postale from Stampin' Up). You'll see the reoccurring theme in my cards.

I managed to pump out 8 adorable cards in a few hours (MIL made 3, she's a perfectionist!), using scrap booking paper leftover my scrap booking days, and MIL's stamp pads. Total cost for my 8 unique and sweet cards: $0. Love it! I gave MIL her favorite one as a thanks.

Anyways, if you're looking for a new hobby, I highly suggest card making! Fun, useful, and if you find you don't like it then you can send me all of your supplies!


  1. I love Stampin' Up. If I had more money and time I could get in some real trouble with them.

  2. Me too! My Mil literally has suitcases full of their stuff. I can only imagine how much it all cost!
