How does the title go together?!  Well the answer is that it doesn’t really, except it all happened in one day…for the most part 😀

 Today, Susannah and Cassia came back from their orchestra camp that they’ve been at since Monday morning-YAY!  Our family seemed so small without them!  And we had so many leftovers 😀  Leah and I did notice, though, that when we cook, we make less dishes than they do 😀  Cassia teased us and said it was because they make better meals!  I doubt it…I think we ate just as good as usual 😀

 Now for the cards.  First of all, I love the Etsy shop called Masterpiece DesignsShe sells the prettiest graphics for a reasonable price, and then you can print them out as much as you like!  Leah and I recently ordered these vintage garden tags through her, and I love, love, love them 😀  Here is a picture of a couple of cards I’ve made with them:

 

Recently, our good friend Miss Marna gave us some beautiful trivets for us girls to share.  I think they are so pretty, I could never ever put a hot pan on them 😀  I was playing around with our scanner the other day and scanned the pictures into the computer, and now I can make as many cards as I want!  I had just recently been looking for some old-fashioned flavored cards, and these pictures are perfect! 

 

 

 

Here are a couple of cards I made with the pictures 🙂

 

 I also newly discovered a tool on Picnik (thank you Kate!) where you can make only  a part of your picture colored, and the rest black and white 😀

 

 

While making cards tonight, I found the cover of a “to do” list that I had kept because it was so pretty.  I first thought that I should put it into my scrapbook journal.  But then I decided to scan it in first 😀

-wake up

-eat breakfast

-milk goats

-decorate cakes

-eat lunch

-practice with the girls and Mommy

-make cards for graduation tomorrow

-eat supper

-do dishes

-go to bed

Okay, so that’s kind of a silly list, but you can’t have a “to do” list without anything to do on it, right?! 😀

And speaking of graduation cakes…here are some pictures of the ones I worked on today 🙂

 

 

And now, I think it is time to do the last thing on my “to do” list…go to bed.

Now I can say with Toad, “Now my day is all crossed out.” 😀

    Beautiful cards! I loved your idea for a scrapbook journal a couple of months ago and ended up making one too. Something I did a little differently was that I had recently found a bunch of old cards I had received – birthday, thank you, notes, etc. There was really no reason to keep them all, but many of them had pretty pictures like the ones on your homemade cards. I ended up cutting apart many of the cards and adding some of those front pictures to my scrapbook journal -just like with the magazine pictures. I have also recycled some of them by adding trim or mounting them on cardstock to make my own cards (which I think are so much more fun and personal then buying the often overpriced ones from the store)!

      That is such a good idea to use cards like that! So much better than being in a box somewhere where no one sees them 🙂

    Oh, please tell Destiny, “Congratulations, from Kelley”! That’s so great!

    So, Jessica, with all those cards you’ve been making, does that mean you’ll be sending “someone” one soon???? (Hint, hint!!!!) I greatly miss your emails/letters.

    {{{HUGS}}} & Love,
    Kelley

      Hi Kelley! That is a GREAT idea 😀 I do believe that I will use one of those cards and write you a note! I forget if I told you this yet or not, but I absolutely loved the one you sent me! Though I have been silent to you for a while, I have been thinking a lot about you 😀 Love you and miss you!

      {{HUGS to you, too!}}

    Beautiful Pictures! I am the youngest of 7 sisters myself, no brothers. Of course we’re all grown now. I’ve really enjoyed looking over your blog.

    Those pictures are beautiful! I also love finding antique artwork to decorate with. Using those graphics to make cards was a great idea! So easy!
