Giraffe Thank Yous

I've had to send a lot of thank you cards to people that have brought food, contributed to Noah's Memorial Fund or have helped us in some way. I needed the cards to be super simple because of the amount of cards I'd have to make, so here's what I came up with. This embossing folder is one of my favorites and I love how it just makes the card. :)

I needed to make a couple birthday cards and I asked Carver what they should look like. Well, all he said was "Pink!" So that's what I went with. I made this one first and then realized I needed a bunch more and as much as I liked the script background, it would take too much time.
 So along came this one!
I still like the first one best but I love the simplicity of this one too.

Noah's Announcement

 Here's Noah's announcements. I love the simplicity of it! The giraffe paper gave me a kick though. I found it on ebay but when that seller didn't have enough, and I couldn't find it anywhere else, I went to the manufacturer and placed my first sale at a wholesale only company. I must admit, it was pretty scary. haha

Puppy Shower Invites

Here's the invites that I made for my friend, Amanda's, baby shower. The nursery is going to be a puppy theme with these colors so her mom wanted to do the shower with the same theme. I am loving how these turned out!

I just got my memory card for my camera back so I'll hopefully have some more things to post about. I honestly don't remember what I put on there before Noah was born. Speaking of Noah though, if you would like to see some pictures, you can go to our family blog, The Garland Fam.

I'm Alive!

We're still alive! We're doing ok... just hanging out as a family. I've also been trying to get Noah's life announcements finished and in the mail. Well, I got half of them done today and in envelopes before I remembered that I had forgotten the giraffe for the back. Oh well. I'm not going to open all of those envelopes. I'm waiting on the rest of the giraffe paper that I ordered so I can finish the rest.

I've also been working on my friend's baby shower. I finished the invites and got them to her mom to mail out (I'm scheduling that post for tomorrow) and now I've got the Wishes for Baby cards, a banner and cupcake toppers. These cards are going to be part of my gift to Amanda. The ones that I'm going to give her say "thank you" instead. My friend has my memory card for my camera since she is editing the pictures of Noah that are on there. So this is the only picture I have right now.
