September Pocket Card Swap at Your Paper Pantry

My first time making pocket note cards, which were so easy and fun. I got a little carried away making pocket cards, just wanted to get it right. These are great for gift cards, small notes or maybe a treat, or on a scrapbook page to tuck in a photo or journaling spot. Here are the pocket note cards that I mailed off for the swap. Of course, I waited until the last minute, so I didn't think to take a photo before I packaged them up and rushed off to the post office, but you get the idea. Since they were in the correspondence group I figured I needed envelopes, but I didn't have envelopes that fit them to look cute. So what did I do? Made those as well! At least I was able to use my envelope punch board, lol!

And here is a little extra on the back, I made some tags!

More pocket note cards .... yeah, I was on a roll!

Christmas Card Challenge for September at Your Paper Pantry

Here are my Christmas cards for September's challenge. This month we could copy one our Christmas cards from last year (optional), which would have been easier for me, but I was so in love with this new Stampin' UP! paper that I couldn't resist! I copied one of the cards from the catalog, well sort of. It will be a while before I fussy cut again, lol.

Come join us at yourpaperpantry.ning for lots of challenges and swaps. I've just started doing swaps and it has been fun and way for me to get more ideas and think outside the box. Lots of great fun!

Just a quick recipe share

Hello, again.

Once a month my best friend and I get together and scrapbook for the day and she makes us lunch! How great is that?! This time she made a salad and picked up a rotisserie chicken. It was like a chop salad and chicken. Well, I usually don't eat meat, but I ate little bit, but this salad would be great on it's own. She shared me the recipe, it's from the Food Network.  I hope you give it a try, it is very simple and great to serve during these warm summer days.

Hello, May! Oops, I mean July!!

I can't believe it's May already and I can't keep up with posting, but it's been a busy April ....

Wow, I can't believe the summer is half way over, I only say that, because our school year starts in a few weeks. This summer has been flying by! Here's a little bit of what I've been up to, just a little ....

A new roof so we can get solar installed

I've been busy playing around with my computer, made recipe cards.

Stamped some thank you cards
