Card Making Day with Katie

Katie & I have been friends since Kindergarten and she had a baby boy a couple weeks ago. Today she came over to make some thank you cards. We had fun chatting and crafting.

We managed to make 22 of these before we ran out of Kraft cardstock. (Katie is now in love with Kraft cardstock and is having me pick up 2 packs of it for her at CHA!) I think they are adorable - it certainly helps having a cute baby as the focal point! We are planning another day to craft some more before I head back to school and she heads back to work.

Over the weekend we went to a bridal shower and this is the card I made them. I {heart} Guidelines 2!!

I'm not sure if I will be back here before I leave for Chicago or not - tomorrow might get busy. I can't believe that one week from today I will already be home! Can't wait to meet some of you!

Thanks for stopping by!
