Card Creations!


MY ALL CARD GIVEAWAY! Place a comment below before April 16th at midnight--and you could be randomly picked for a set of 4 of my assorted handmade cards!





Another day of focused cardmaking at our local store yeilded about 35 cards. Here is a sampling of my monochromatic cardmaking method. I was able to use up several pre-folded cardstock base formats from a garage sale-- and several small pieces and supplies I had in the "to use" bag! Most of these cards were specifically designed to go into some lavender envelopes that my friend Edith gave me recently. This was another endeavor in Going Green! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Computer wording and rubber stamps from a variety of vendors provide the wording. These cards will become gifts at the holidays as well as charitable contributions. This mass production allows me to use down my stash aggressively, save some money next holiday, brighten someone else's day, and feel great about sharing!
