What I've been working on.

I have been having a great time off so far.  We have been relaxing and swimming in the pool.  We got an above ground pool the other day and set it up.  It is soooooo nice  being able to swim in the pool to escape from the heat.  It's only a 12 X 30 inch pool but it does the trick.  The boys are loving being outside and I am loving watching them learn how to swim.

Anyways... one of my coworkers asked me to make her some cards.  They are business size and are to put inside gifts.  She showed me a sample of one she had from many years ago and I finally delivered them to her.  So here are the pics...

I found the free clip art online and pasted them together to make their family.  I blocked out their last name to protect their identity but I think they came out fabulous, if I do say so myself.  I think that this is a great idea.  Anytime you have a gift to give either in your family or for the kid's school, you get one of these little cards and put them in the gift.  It's cute, it's personal, and super convenient!!  

I will probably be making more for our family and perhaps I can make a little business out of this...anything to make extra money to pay for my scrapbooking addiction...LOL!!  I just have to find clip art that I can use to sell.  If anyone knows about this, PLMK.

Hope you enjoy,


  1. Hey Mercy. How are you? Glad you are enjoying your time off, the kids and crafting. The cards are super cute. Love them. Isn't it great to be able to create whenever you want.?

  2. Hey Ana!! I'm doing pretty good. I love being off for the summer and spending time with my little munchkins :) As for scrapping anytime, that really hasn't been working out for me. I have to keep them entertained all the time. The little bit of time that I had to work on this project is when my family came over for a little bit and when Benny gets home form work. Bueno, I'll talk to you later :)

  3. Mercedes my beautiful friend......I absolutely LOVE these tags. I loved them when I finally saw your text message on Monday. Your co-worker is going to LOVE them :) It was great talking to you yesterday - Miss you my friend!! xoxo, T
