i had to make a quick birthday card today ... since alyssa had a friends party to go to tonight. i just grabbed some scraps that were still out from yesterdays layout ... and made up a few of these.
once again ... some making memories pattern papers. once again ... some cuttlebug swiss dot embossing. i have been wanting to use these little calendar tags that i found a while back ... they're so cute and i thought they'd be perfect for cards. i'm not big on how i circled the date ... "june" and "30" were right next to each other ... so it looked a little funny to me. then i just added some ribbon (that i have no idea where it came from) ... and some little leather flowers. i think the flowers are EK success ... i had these 3 left on a sheet ... so i plopped them on.
you ever have one of those days where you feel like you're totally caught up? today was one of those days for me. laundry is totally done and put away. fridge and pantry are filled up ... i even washed and cut up all the fruit and veggies. assignments totally done ... mailed off today along with a few other goodie packages that i put off a little. paperwork is done and filed away ... bills are paid ... receipts all organized. my scrap space is clean. new ink cartridges replaced in my printers ... so no more warnings every time i print. i just feel caught up some.
i'm sure tomorrow it will all fall apart again. i think i have 8 kids here tomorrow ... so it's going to be crazy. i guess i'll enjoy the quiet, calmness of tonight while i can!
