Anyone love Monday's?

I love Monday's. For me it is my day to goof off so that is why I love them!
Here are a few more cards I did over the weekend. I hope you do not get tired of seeing so many baby cards all the time, but I sell the cards at a local boutique and that just happens to be what sells the best.

This is vanilla cs from SU, the dp is from My Minds Eye and the image is actually a rub-on from the dollar store.


This next one is whisper white cs from SU which I ran through the cuttlebug. I used one of the nestabilities to cut out the oval window and then I stamped the image on dp from Joanne's and placed it on the inside of the card.


And here is a simple "thinking of you" card. The cs is Lavender from SU. I also used a little bit of certainly celery from SU. The dp is from Joannes and the image is a dollar stamp which I think I got at AC Moore.



ok, now for the last 2 years I have made the gifts to hand out at church for mother's day. The problem is, that when father's day rolls around, they get nothing. I do not think that is fair and I would like to make a little surprise to hand out to them this year. I have been trying to think of something that would not cost too much, and I was hoping to pick your brains...so if you can think of a little something something, please let me know!

Now I am off the the local thrift stores to see what kind of goodies I can find!

Have a great day!

Update:

Well, we are back from the thrift stores and although I did not find what I was looking for, this is what I did find:





Did I need a set of china? Nope, but I just loved the color blue that is on it, so I had to have it. It is so very pretty. I told my husband that I want paint in that color and suggested that he take one of the teacups over to Home Depot to have them color match the paint. In return to my suggestion, I got "the look" which said very clearly that in no way is he carrying a teacup into Home Depot. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

These are so sweet, I could look at baby cards all day long Sandy!
LOL about about your DH taking a teacup into Home Depot, but I do think that color is amzing. What would you paint?

Your cards are very pretty! I would love to know how you approached the boutique to sell your cards. I would love to be able to sell some of my creations, too, but am nervous about asking the store owner.

I love your cards. And your teacups are beautiful. They look so 1950's. I think my Mom had a refrigerator that color!

I find men like candy just as much a women. How about a little baggie of Hershey hugs and kisses? Or a cookie or two in a little bag?
