Christmas Calendar Magnet Postcards

Okay, so next up are some Christmas Calendar Magnet postcards. I made these for a few people in Ecuador, one for myself, and one for my best-friend, Marjorie. I used Lili of the Valley cute squares on all postcards. I swear I love that store!!! I have so many stamps and cute squares from them! I really miss buying from them since I'm not in the states all the time now.

This is Marjorie's postcard:

Christmas Calendar Magnet Cards

Before I go back to Ecuador I have to make my dad's calendar magnet cards. I'm leaving in a few weeks and this task is not that easy and is time-consuming soooo..... to make a long story short, I turned to my trusty Cricut machine. I used my cricut to make ALL of my cards. Well all except for 8 of them which I made into postcards. In total I  made 97 of these cards.

I made calendar magnets in the shape of presents:

CARDS 757-854

Welcome Miss Vicki!!!!

I left for Ecuador in June of this year (hence no card posting) and this past October I came back for the birth of my niece, Victoria. She was born on October 22nd at Stamford Hospital and boy does she look like my brother! Holy moly! Anywho, she's my little sweet pea. I decided to make an easel card to mark her arrival into this world. Being that her mother loves the color purple and she has purple elements in her nursery, I decided to maker her a color-themed card. I used a cute square from Lily of the Valley (my favorite store), different patterned paper, and glitter, flowers, and lace. Glady said it almost looked like Vicki was on a bed :) 

I also had a picture taken of her and I, desaturated it and added pink elements. Then I typed a small sentiment on the photo, printed it and framed it in.... a purple frame. I made the same frame for myself but in blue. Behold, little Miss Vicki's first card made by her auntie Jackie.
