All Systems Go!!


I'm on a bit of a much needed blog break this month. I have a few things to think through, and a few things to catch up on. As promised, here is one of the cards I recently made.

This one was for our DIL's son. He's such a fun kid, you know. He always makes everyone laugh, and he's outgoing and precocious. We really enjoy him!! 
The card has a bit of a mixed media feel to it with the added rub ons and such...just a bit.

I enjoyed doing the inside...again with some rub ons added.
This is also inside, on the back of the front of the card. Just a little extra.

You know what's funny about this card? I went to download it onto this blog, when I happened to notice another birthday card folder. I checked it out of curiosity, and there was a card for the same child, almost identical--which I sent him last year!!

Oh my goodness...hopefully he doesn't remember. Can you believe that? I guess I need some more "boy" themed papers!

Have you ever done anything like that? Please...someone!! ;)

Have a good week! I hope the temps are warmer where you are than they are here!

Be blessed!


  1. Your card is so cute! I love all the detail you put into it! I haven't made a duplicate yet, but give it time! lol... It is so cold here too; we are so ready for Spring!

  2. Cute card. I want to thank you for all the digis and the nice "trip" I took around your site. Off to look at more of it.


Thanks for the comments!
