- I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

I have decided to send out some Thanksgiving cards to let my family know how much I love them and they mean to me. I have a wonderful, wonderful extended family that have been by my side thru the worst time of my life...and they continue to do so thru now a happy time in my life. I christened the girls and some of my familiy members drove over 5 hours and stayed in a hotel to be there.
SO when I saw the challenge over at Sheetload of Cards I knew it was perfect. I hate to measure things..actually I am afraid of the ruler actually but it gives you all the dimensions to make several cards at once. It kinda idiot proofs cardmaking..which is what I need! What is even greater is that these cards fit into a business size envelope. It is a very simple card but one I hope my family members will appreciate. I plan on writing a really nice note in there..especially since these are very late!
These cards fit:
