~Stocking Up~

It always seems that after Christmas, I tend to run out of cards to give away. Each year, during our Christmas break, we spend some time at home with family, and even though it can get busy, I always sneak in at least a day or two of cardmaking. It always works out so well that yet another Christmas has passed and I no longer need to worry about holiday cards...So I tend to prepare a few thank-you's, baby cards, and some general themes to use in the year ahead.

Unfortunately, I usually forget to replace the cards with new creations once I use them. 
I suppose, it never seems to be an issue, since I always have enough cards to carry me through the year, but.....
This year, for some strange reason, I ran out early. 
I have a couple of outstanding thank-yous in order, and other occasions coming up, so I am taking a break today from holiday crafting, to share the cards I made to replenish my stock :)


First up, a baby card which I also created in blue, just in case :)
I used a few different PTI products to make this card. 
Both of the doilies, heart die, and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink. 


While I had my Button Boutique stamps and dies out, I couldn't help but playing with them just a little longer. 
I used  several vintage buttons to decorate the button card stamped with this stamp set, and added a few pretty papers from Pink Paislee. 


I needed a couple of thank you cards, so I created these simple, neutral cards, so that I don't have to panic when I need to send a thank-you!


I used PTI's Love Lives Here stamp and die sets, as well as pretty floral tags from Iralamija's Etsy Shoppe

I know it's a quick post today, but I am working on a special project or two at the moment, so I best be getting back to work :) 

Happy Friday!
