Mums and Mat Stacks...
It's a Banner Day...

Snap + Fish....

Hey there...  I'm here with a deal for you today!  Snapfish....ever heard of them?  Ha.  You can get your photos printed.  You can turn those photos into all kinds of great gifts.  You can also get neat cards...with or without photos. 

Well, Snapfish is partnering with Paper Crafts Magazine to offer you a great deal on some great cards.  I'm all about cards.  And I'm all about a great deal.  So it's a match made in heaven.  From now until November 25, you can enter the code MAKINGCARDS during checkout to receive 25% off your order.  Sweet. You can read more about the details HERE.

They have a TON of cards to choose from...whether you're into photo cards...or not.  I will admit that I usually send out preprinted photo cards to everyone on our Christmas list.  I know...I know.  Some day I'm vowing to make them all by hand.  But with all of the great templates available at Snapfish, that vow might be pretty hard to keep. :-)

While looking through their massive card selection I came across this cute snowy's simple...with plenty of space for adding my own flair.  I thought it would be fun to dress up with some paper-crafted goodness to give me the best of both worlds...handmade and digital!  I also thought the "Thank You" sentiment would make these perfect to hand out to teachers, Bible study leaders, etc...  or I could make some more with my kids to use as thank you notes after the gifts have been opened!


I added a strip of colorful patterned paper from Echo Park's Everybody Loves Christmas collection, a diecut felt tree using Papertrey's Christmas Tree die, some buttons and twine. 

They were so easy!  Starting with the preprinted base made them so quick...they literally only took me minutes to make, with just a few basic supplies. 


And speaking of photos, I shared some new pics of my youngest last week.  Well, I hit up the big kids on Saturday, so I thought fair is fair...I'd better share some of them too.

Julia...she didn't mind at all...she loves having her picture taken, so it was fun.

They both have glasses now, so that's a new challenge for me....


And Jonathan minds a little more than his sisters, but he was a good sport. 


If you're like me, you love having new photos to play around with.  I know I can't wait to head over to Snapfish to get some of these printed and maybe make some great holiday gifts.  Don't forget...if you want to use the code, it expires on November 25th!  Enjoy!
