Two Sets of Twins and Roller Coasters

I have two sets of twin birthdays today and tomorrow, which makes for a busy time of year for a card-maker! Especially since I have very limited craft time during the summer, I needed to come up with a repeatable design that is somewhat interesting but doesn't take a lot of time. While in the long roller coaster lines with my kids this summer I often pass the time looking at t-shirt designs for inspiration. This summer I saw a lot of partial text designs where you had to take an extra second or two to figure out what it was saying. That intrigued me, and I thought I'd try something similar for a card.

Today I'm over at CAS-ual Fridays with a few versions of my partial text card design. Hope you get a chance to stop by!

Good luck to all those back-to-schoolers!

Moving Update and a CAS-ual Fridays Feature

I'm not sure why I thought once I moved, I'd have all this time to catch up on things. Moving during the summer has turned out to be quite a challenge, as who wants to stay at home unpacking boxes when it's sunny, 80 degrees and your two kids still love to go out on adventures with you? Needless to say, until yesterday afternoon when I knew I had to make a card, this is what my craft room looked like. Just like it did on moving day! I still have a looong way to go, but at least it's functional now, and it's possible to produce something.

Today I've got a card over at the CASual Fridays blog. It uses the tree stamp from Calm and Loving:

Hope you all are having a magical summer! Miss you all : )
