Hello everyone! It's my day to post over at My Thoughts Exactly. Today I'm sharing a simple card I made for a dear friend that lost her father recently. These are the hardest cards for me to make and as simple as it turned out it took a long time to make sure it was just right.

I used the Dainty Doilies set for the background and the More Big Thoughts set for the sentiment. The twine is Sky Trendy Twine.

I know this is a short post and I had every intention of making another happier card but I was creatively exhausted after this one. I promise happier things in my next post :)

Now before I leave here are a few reminders, all the Thoughts sets and the Many Thanks set are back in stock at MTE. However there are limited quantities so get them before they are gone again! Also there is still plenty of time to enter the August Pun challenge for a chance to guest design at MTE and win a bundle of MTE stamps!

Happy crafting!

Random Cards

Hello everyone! As sad as it is to think about summer is coming to an end for me, before I know it school will be starting. It's my day to post over at My Thoughts Exactly and I thought I'd get a start on some cards that I'll be needing throughout the remainder of the year. The first card is for a birthday and one more piece of inspiration for the MTE August Pun Challenge!

There are several men in my life that would love to receive a Hoppy Birthday card :) For this card I used the Lovey Puns - Animals set for the word hoppy and the Under the Sea set for the birthday. Of course there is a little Trendy Twine to add a pop of color and some very manly sparkle...or would it be shine for the men?

My last card is one of my getting ready for Christmas cards. I know it's early but if I don't start now I'll never get done!

I used both the Christmas sets for this card. The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Phrases set and the snowflakes are from the Holly Jolly Tags set. And of course there is a little Trendy Twine, no project is complete without it :)

That's all for me today! Be sure to get your August Pun Challenge projects linked up for your chance to win a guest design spot for a month and a bundle of MTE stamps. Happy crafting!
