Last week I got a phone call from a friend of mine that lives out of state (Washington). I had recently sent her a card similar to the one below. She called asking if I would make her ten cards that she could use to send out to her clients. This is one of those cards. I *love* this patterned paper from Echo Park and thought it would be perfect for a retro styled card. I made each card different while still keeping to the same design. I hope she likes them!!
First off, I want to thank everyone who commented here on my blog and on my Moxie Fabber of the Week post. I really appreciate all of your sweet comments!! :)
Things have been busy, busy here. I had a great long weekend full of spending time with friends and then downtime with my hubby. It was all very nice and relaxing but busy at the same time! I got some cards done so I’ll have a few to share as the week goes by. :)
There is actually no stamping today. I used pieces from the Echo Park Sweet Day collection kit to make this card. The tulle ribbon is from Maya Road (I think!).

Happy Saturday! Happy three day weekend! This is one of the few holidays that my hubby gets off, so that makes me extra happy!! :) While I plan to spend lots of time with him this weekend, I also have plans tonight to get together with a girlfriend for crafting and pizza!
I recently got the Sweet Day collection from Echo Park and made a few cards with it earlier this week. This is one of those cards. I love the muted colors in this collection. It’s all very warm and fuzzy to me. Happy sigh…
I don’t know about you, but Echo Park has quickly become one of my favorite manufacturers. I typically love at least one of their lines every time they have new releases come out. The This & That collection was one of those lines. I loved them so much, I got both collections to play with. Who can resist sweet plaid patterns like the one on this card. Not me, that is for sure!! I paired all this Echo Park goodness with a sentiment from Clear & Simple Stamps, another favorite of mine!
Happy Saturday morning! Anyone have some great plans for the weekend? I have a small bit of nothing planned, except for some cleaning. My kitchen really needs it!
I have a companion to the Mother’s Day card from earlier in the week. It’s a Father’s Day card! I stayed within the Echo Park This & That collection, finishing it off with some Hero Arts twine and buttons from my stash. A very simple CAS card. Just the way I like them!
Have a great weekend!!
On Mondays I’ve been going to a new friends house for papercrafting fun and this card is one of my creations made during one of those trips. I recently realized that I no longer have any Mother/Father’s Day stamps. The perils of selling your unused stamps, I guess. When I saw the new This & That collections from Echo Park I scooped up the chipboard specifically for the parental unit phrases. Now I’m covered for another year! :)
I’m also entering this into this week’s CAS-ual Fridays challenge!

Hello everybodeeeee!! I’m saying this in my best Grover voice (from Sesame Street). Remember him?? My mom used to do the best impression of him when I was growing up. I don’t know why I’ve just remembered this, lol. Okay, moving on!
So today is Thursday already and I can say this is one of the best weeks I’ve had in a while. The creativity is flowing, my DH was on vacation 3 days this week so we spent some quality time together and I got good news regarding my unemployment benefits. All very good things!!
I have a fun but simple card to share with you today. I originally made this without the clouds. I showed my DH the finished card and he thought there was too much white space, even for me. So I went back to my desk and added some clouds. Now the card I liked is the card I love! The patterned paper is from Echo Park (Springtime collection) and the sentiment is Mint Motif (What a Card!).
