I want to send out Happy Halloween cards to all of my girls in my class at church so I made up a bunch of these cards this weekend - 24 cards in all.
We have had a bunch of new girls join in on our classes. At the beginning of the year I only had 7 cards to make. It is so awesome to see the group booming with more young ladies excited to be there every week.
I had to make some sympathy cards this weekend. Three for me to send to a family at church that lost their Mom/Grandma. One card for my Dad to send out. His good friend passed away suddenly last week.
Looky, looky what I found in the craft room this weekend. A Simply Sent card kit. This one is retired and I have no idea where I got it from. (I don't remember ordering it) But I was kinda like a kid at Christmas finding a new toy. I decided to open it up and put all the cards together.
Half of the cards are pre printed with a hello greeting (left side) and half of the cards were blank. (right side) I busted out my Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set and added a "hello" greeting to the blank notes.
A friend from church called me up late one Saturday night and asked if I could make her a blank note for a Sunday School lesson she was teaching the next day. She was telling me a hysterical story of trying to make her own card. After hearing all about her sad attempts at card making, I thought it would be funny to gift her with a set of blank notes to have on hand.
This weekend we celebrated my Dad-in-law's birthday. In typical Dad fashion, he was making goofy faces as we tried to get his picture. I happened to catch this fabulous shot. So funny!
This morning I pulled up the Mojo Monday challenge and knew right away I wanted to use the Simply Sports stamp set.
This weekend Kimberly was asked to play on a tournament team for AYSO. She is super excited. Her fall season will be just a little bit longer which is awesome because she loves to play so much.
Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel.

I have been itching to make one of these adorable Operation Guys since I spied him on Pinterest. A shout out to Ellen Kemper for this idea. She has a great punch "parts list" on her blog. I made a few adaptations and think he turned out super cute.
I ended up making four of these cards. A couple of friends are recovering from surgery. A really young friend recently broke his collar bone. When my friend saw what I was going to make she wanted one for her Dad who is fighting cancer.
I have plans to make another one when my brother-in-law's birthday rolls around. Operation is one of his favorite board games from when he was a kid.
It is day four of the Red Hot Challenge of making a card a day using a stamp set from the SU! Holiday Catalog. I just love all the fun scenes you can create using the White Christmas stamp set.
Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel
