"Hi, my name is Tara, and I have a problem"

I can't stop making cards. I guess it's not really a 'problem', exactly... but it's getting in the way of sleep. I'll stay up until 11 or 12 making cards. Fortunately, they are all for a purpose - I'm not just stockpiling random cards for later (wait a second! this sounds like a great idea!).

June card list included:
Father's Day cards (X4)
Babysitter's daughter's birthday
Anniversary card/scrapbook (which I have yet to post about...)
A bunch of stock thank you cards (Oh, I guess I have stockpiled)

July card list is:
1. Babysitter's other daughter's birthday
2. Friends wedding shower
3. Hubby's birthday
4. Sister-in-Law's birthday
5. Father-in-Law's birthday
6. HBo's Birthday party invitations (eek... need to do these super soon)
7. Nephew's 1st (!!) birthday
8. Stock Thank You cards

So, for now, I've started with #1 and #2... and a bit of #8
