What better way to spend Family Day than with friends (who are like family!) doing something fun together. I love it when E (and her brother M) comes over as we often get busy with a project and then chat the entire time. By the time we’re done with whatever we’re working on, we have finished projects and we are all caught up on each other’s busy lives… well, until the next time we see each other!

As M was out sledding, E, H and I decided to put the bird house project on hold and make cards instead. We all chose the same style (tri-fold) but then chose different colors and themes. Here is E’s custom-made birthday card for her friend:

I decided to keep it simple and stick to a ‘writer’s theme’ for my card:

H went for a more vintage look with these elegant cards:

Some of the stamps and papers were purchased from Stampin’ Up! while the others were random purchases from local craft stores.

I hope you all had a great Family Day surrounded by your own friends and families, making memories, sharing stories, ideas and laughter. 🙂
