Making cards the cheap way

Making cards
Originally uploaded by pwinn.
We found an old copy of Martha Stewart magazine at the bookstore and inside she uses pencil erasers to make stamps. All the flowers you see on this card were made with either an entire round eraser on the tip of a pencil, 1/2 an eraser tip, or a 1/3 of a tip. Very easy to slice off with a steak knife. Dab on a ink pad and you get some pretty flowers. The girls and I had fun making some thank you cards today.

Those cards are SO CUTE! What a great idea...and you are just the one to put it into action. You are so talented and do so well sharing your ideas with the kids.

We sure do miss you. I am ashamed to say Alyssa and Anna wrote notes for the kids immediately upon receiving theirs and Mommy lost them! -sigh- I just found them and am not sure what I should do...send them or have them write new ones.

I know they will want to write out Valentines so maybe they can write notes with them as well.

Hi Tricia,
We miss you all too! I've actually been on Instant Messager for the last few days so maybe we can catch up soon.
Don't worry about the letters, I've done the same thing.
I hope to talk to you soon.
