Just for fun....


Hello...another quiet day at home. My hubby is out fishing again and daughter still in her adorable Mickey Mouse pj's watching Peter Pan...so fun! I did a bit of cleaning in my craft room today, some major clean up and reorganization, it really felt so good. Not much got tossed out but I am happy with the results for now at least.  I finished up a bunch of little projects sitting on my desk too and that is where this cute little card box comes in.  During last month's PTI blog hop, Irma from Craftmates made these fabulous cards and even more amazing little boxes filled with note cards. She included the link to Jennifer McGuire's tutorial on how to make these and you can see the video here. She uses the We R Memory's Envelope Punch board that I have had sitting on my book shelf for longer than I am willing to admit. So I finally dusted it off (and yes it did need a bit of dusting) and went to work.  So I finished up a set of Washi Tape cards and stuffed my fun card box and then added a bit of decorations and done!  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Oh, I can see that you did have fun today, and I love your cards an their sweet box. I see you are putting your sequins and washi tape to good use, and I am tremendously jealous of all your tapes. What a nice gift those cards will make.

  2. My little one is in his pajamas too! It has been pouring rain all day and I too have been doing a bit of re-organization of my craft room and enjoyed reading a book for a wee bit too! Rainy day Sundays are the best! Your card set is lovely! I will need to peek at the video and try it myself one day soon! :)
