Hey there! Hope you are all doing well. Today I decided to share a few simple cards I created with the Authentique "Cheerful Collection" I think we could all you some of that this week. It's a fun collection for sure.
I love having a stash of cards in a box in my craft room that I can go to, to send a little note to a friends. My card box is pretty low these days, so these will be going in :) I love sending snail mail! Who doesn't love getting something nice in the mail?
This Collection as some super cute images for sure. I'm going to be working on some layouts with this collection for a friend, using photos of her grandchildren.
If you're interested you can check out the blog post I did a while back HERE, showing other felt flowers.
Like I mentioned in that earlier post... there are LOTS of great felt flower tutorials on YouTube and they are so easy!
I just cant tell you how much I enjoy these days crafting with these ladies. It's like therapy! lol
Oh, and then there's this. My sis always out does her self.
It's a casual day ..no makup, so I look sicky. lol Oh well, they love me even without makeup. lol
Boy am I bless to have these amazing women in my life!
What else have I been up to? Well, this little sweetie,(Lyla) is turning two! I was at their farm yesterday to take her two year photos and photos of the three of them as a family. ( I should say "Four of them ") Yes, Lyla is going to be a big sister.
For those of you who don't know ... Andrew and Kate are friends of our kids. Wes and Andrew went to College together. They ended up buying a farm just a few miles up the road from us. Although Lyla isn't our Grandchild, she calls me Grandma Vicki, and I'm telling you, I love her so much! Her and Wyatt and Emmett make me feel like a Grammy :) I'm so lucky to have them all living so close.
It just couldn't have been a nicer day for taking photos. I LOVE their farm!
And I love them.
Families like this give me so much hope for the future.
Hugs all around!
