Stamp to the Max January Blog Hop

Happy New Year!  The new year brings new goals, new life, and a new catalog!!!  This hop is dedicated to the new Occasions Catalog.  I am loving the new options and colors for Spring.  You will fall in love as well, so sit back and enjoy some samples from the new line of products available now!

The last few months have been eventful for me to say the least.  After what seemed like forever, I finally had my baby on November 18th!  We found a new home that we decided to build the first of December.  And my oldest boy turned 7 the end of December.  All this around the holidays too!

All of that going on the last 6 weeks means that I was in serious need of some Thank You cards for several occasions.  The cards I am showing you come out of the Simply Sent kit called Good as Gold.  I think it is super cute and very versatile.  I am using these cards for every event I listed above. 

They were quick and easy to put together, which is exactly what I need right now with a new baby and my other son home from school on Christmas break.  It comes with 8 polka dot note cards, envelopes, and envelope liners.  Then you get 8 pieces of baker's twine and gold elastic trim.  It comes with everything pre stamped and there are WAY more than 8 banners to put on the cards.  My plan is to use the leftover printed banners for other cards that I will make in the same color scheme.  You can recreate the cuteness without having to do all the prep work that way.

So my son wrote thank yous for his birthday gifts and I did a few for people who brought food for the family gathering celebrating the baby as well.  It was the perfect kit for me and I think it will be the perfect kit for you and any of your friends that need quick and easy cards.

Now hop along to the next lovely blog and enjoy some other options from the new catalog.  Remember you can order off my website at at any time.  Don't forget to check the digital downloads for MDS as well.
