Since I have the supplies, and I've looked at the price of cards recently, I haven't purchased a card in over a year. I've been making them and the process has really grown on me! Below are a few of my recent creations.
This card used a stamp set that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby as well as some scraps that I had laying out. This color combo completely makes me smile so I am hoping that it does the same for the recipient!
This card was made for a challenge that required the use of many different patterned papers. I liked the eclectic look to it and the phrase at the front kind of represents that craziness of the patterns all together. Oh, I should add, that the pattern idea was inspired by my parents' tile bathroom tiled floor in their 1940's home!
This one was a quick one (which also didn't photograph well). My grandfather has been living in a nursing home for about two months now. The transition as has been quite an adjustment for many people along with my Grandpa. He loves to receive mail so although I visit him weekly, I still send a card each week just so that he has something to open and look at. I love to visit and have him show me the cards he has received from others so I know he appreciates mine as well!
So, those are the greeting cards that I have made this week. I have a few more that I need to send out so I know that there will be more card making on the horizon for me. After pricing out cards for nearly $4 per card, I am happy to craft one with love! Until next time...
