I'm baaaaaaack.........with cards!!....

When I make a card, I always make six of them--one to keep, and the rest to send or make up into gift packages. I give a lot of my cards for hostess gifts, simple birthday gifts, and "just because". I have some plastic boxes which I buy here in town. They hold about 5 cards, and with a ribbon and a cute tag on it, it is a nice gift and most of my friends say they love getting them. I think they do.

Its been several weeks since I've done cards because of the cruise, Christmas, getting and sorting all of the cruise pictures, and getting them into albums. Now I'm ready to start doing cards again. I'm anxious to get back into it!!


This is the last card that I made...in November!!



This has been in my project drawer for
three months! I have to finish these before I will let myself go on to another card!

The rest of the cards I will just post with no verbage!! I would like to place them two to a line, but my machine will not let me do that. Good thing I am not paying for this space!


This card is made with folded papers--not stamps except for the greeting.











































I was surprised to see the tripod legs showing up. They must have come into view when I was straightening the photos on iphoto. One of these days, I will get it all figured out!!

This bottom card is my all time favorite card I have ever made. I have made it half-sheet size for a 60th wedding anniversary. I do the greeting on the computer. The line down the middle of the card is actually an off white transparent ribbon behind the deep pink.

"For He has satisfied the thirsty soul,
And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good."
Psalm 107:9

I love your cards! I like to scrapbook and make cards.. but, with so many children I skip the cards and make very simple scrapbooks (One for each child and one family album per year) I am also working on a WWII scrapbook for a veteran that I met in my old neighborhood. Wish I was in Oregon and could stop by!
I am actually surprised you found my blog-- I keep it hidden from my profile to help appease my dh who wants me to be a little discreet :)
Nice to cyber-meet you!
