15 years ago today I married my soulmate and best friend, Jason. Just can’t believe how fast time has flown by! I guess it’s really true what they say — time flies when you’re having fun!
AND, I had extra fun making him an anniversary card — here’s a little peek:
I gave it to J while we were staying at a little cabin near Riding Mountain national park in Manitoba, Canada. He really loved it!
To see the whole card, click on over to the BasicGrey blog where you’ll find a little tutorial on how to make your own typewriter keys.
See ya there,
Hi! Have you heard the happy news? Jennifer and Ken McGuire have a new baby, Lila! A bunch of us decided to make a ton of cards to welcome her into the world over here at Jana’s blog — and you can even join in the fun too if you like! (Check it out.)
Here’s the card I made:
None of the baby stamps that I have felt exactly right, so I decided to stick to patterned paper for this card. That’s right, no stamping! (Can you believe it?)
I had fun using my typewriter on a background that I made in photoshop — something about the old + new appeals to me, ha! And of course I had to add a little washi tape.

Congratulations and big big hugs to the whole McGuire family! So happy for you all. Welcome to the world sweet Lila!
Off to check out the cards,
Here are two more Mother’s Day cards I just had to share! The first one is for J’s Mom (Mom, if you are reading this stop now ha ha!)
I used my new typewriter to make the message on this one — love the typewriter so much! I’ll be writing a post all about it and places to look for typewriters/things to watch out for soon.
The crepe paper flowers are stickers by Martha Stewart — I’ve been hoarding them (er, saving them for a special occasion) for a while now.
Love the patterned paper too — it’s by Crate Paper. I used some more to create a card for J’s Grandma!
Love that stamp, I used it to make so many cards for my Grandma. Was thinking about her when I made this one.
Hope you have a great weekend, and wishing a very Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
I am so happy! I got a typewriter — finally! I’ve been wanting one for years and years, but couldn’t find one, and when I did I was overbid. I made up my mind that I had to have one, and I started stalking ebay and etsy like a fiend! And it paid off, because I finally found the typewriter of my dreams.
I used it yesterday to make a Mother’s Day card for my step-mom — love how it turned out!
And I had to add a little zig zag washi tape (by Trendy Tape, found it at Archiver’s the other day) and twine!
My step-mom is an avid reader, so I made her a matching bookmark too!
Sure hope she likes it!
And I can’t wait to use my typewriter more! Yah! I gotta get better pics, was cloudy and rainy when I took these.
I’ve got more Mother’s Day cards to share too — can’t wait to show you!
