Just a Lovely Way to Say "Thank You"

In December I gave you all a little glimpse at how talented my mom is at scrapbooking. She made the world's cutest scrapbook for Huckleberry! If you missed it, make sure to check it out here! But not only has she scrapbooked me and my two brothers lives from birth to present {as well as all our family pets}, she also makes greeting cards for any occasion! And I was lucky enough to get a little package in the mail filled with homemade Thank You cards to send out after my bridal shower and wedding. Seriously, they are too cute!
She made sooooo many different kinds! Each is so unique but all resemble the rustic, blue and burlap wedding theme! I wanted to show you every single one, but I spared you a super long, tedious post and picked out a few of my favorites.
 Love the little hearts on this one!
 How cute is that bride and groom stamp?!
 I think my absolute favorite is this last one! 
Isn't she amazing? Thankfully, I have a crafty mother because Lord knows I definitely do not have the patience to make my own thank you cards!

I tell her all the time she should seriously consider opening an Etsy shop and trying to sell her custom made cards and scrapbooks. I think it would be a hit! Maybe not a "quit your day job" sort of thing...but if it's something you enjoy doing, why not?

What do you think? Would you buy custom greeting cards or scrapbooks on Etsy? And how do you feel about a giveaway for some of my mom's greeting cards? Is that a giveaway you'd be interested in entering?

These are beautiful! I would absolutely buy custom greeting cards from an etsy shop. I always buy Papyrus cards but I think it would be great to have a variety of homemade ones. Beautiful! You are lucky to have a mom who would take the time to do this for you!

These are adorable! Tell your mother to take her talent to etsy and share it with everyone! These would be such a hit! I love them!

Cards are not something I would probably buy, BUT - these cards looks as good as (if not better than) most of the Etsy paper/card shop stuff I have seen!

I am a HUGE stationary collector. I have boxes and boxes - I feel very strongly about still sending out handwritten letters and notes. It's so regal and classic - I will not let email ruin that! She DEF needs to start a store!!

Holly said...

Those are beautiful! I've bought cards from Etsy shops before and would totally do it again :)

Danielle, you know what I think about your mom's talent! These cards have made me fall even more in love with her talent!
Mrs. Carroll, if you read this, PLEASE do it! :) Listen to your daughter :)
I LOVE them!

I love the cards! They are beautiful and personal! My old boss used to make cards also and I saved every single one of them to add to my scrapbook someday.
I can only hope I can make cards as beautiful as these...but I'm not that talented!

Ashley said...

Yes! Who wouldn't want your mom's cards!

Holly said...

Wow! Those are amazing! What an awesomely talented mother you have! I I were you I would want to keep all those cards and not send them out. :P

Also, I make my own cards, so I personally would not buy them on Etsy, but I definitely think she should consider selling them. :)

Wow! She is super talented! I went back to look at the huckleberry scrapbook and I loved that too!

My mom makes crafty cards too! I've been telling her she needs to open up shop! Your mom is super talented- I loved and drooled over all of these :)

I didn't realize my sister-in-law was so talented. I thought she was just smart. These are beautiful and so professionally done.
