Exciting News & Lots of Cards

Hey everybody! I have some exciting news to share! Autumn made the "A" team in Volleyball yesterday! They have A,B,& C teams. Autumn was basically the top 6 out of about 35 girls! We are SO excited for her! She has her first game today and I already have our School Spirit shirt on! :) Volleyball was my Favorite sport and I have waited 12 years to watch her play! They play all kinds of sports, but this is her first year to play this! It might be a little rocky at first, but I think they will all get better! :)
Well as you can see by the picture below, I have been cleaning out all of my cards! These are mostly from submitting and weren't picked, so there are alot of them! Thanks to my friend Kelley and her cleaning sprees she does, she has inspired me to clean out my card bucket and mail some out and just try and give some away! I have lost site of card making by submitting all the time and then they would sit in the bucket!
So today I am sending off 5 cards to family and customers of our business. I have been told many times and again just today that I have the gift of encouragement! What a great gift to have and how Amazing that I like to make cards too! I can send cards to people to help encourage them! Thank You Lord! :)
I am going to try and continue to send cards out and if they are some that I haven't post on here, then I will post them when I send them. Then I can cross it off of my long list to post! :)
So here is all my clutter at my kitchen table this morning. Here is a card I made months ago and submitted and it wasn't accepted. I really love the colors. I am sending this one to my Mee Mee.I made this one a couple of month's ago and it wasn't submitted. I am sending this one to my Uncle who just lost his wife.
I started making this one a couple of months ago to, but I finished it this morning. It is for my cousin and his family. His Mom is the one that passed away.
I am also sending my cousin and her family a card and a customer of ours too. I have already posted those cards over a year ago. It really feels good to send out some cards! That IS why I started making cards in the first place! :)
So I want to challenge ya'll to send out some cards today! Sometimes people just want a reminder that you Love them! :)
I still have lots of projects that I haven't ever posted, I hope to get those post soon too!
And don't forget about the EBTKS challenge! Get those hair bows, clips, and rubber bands out and make a card! It really was alot of fun!
