Cards, Cards, and MORE Cards!






Crafters -

I have been working on cards lately, I PROMISE! :) You see, I had a workshop yesterday and didn't want to post three of the cards until AFTER her workshop was done (Thanks again Alice - I had a BLAST!).

SO, without further ado... here are some of the cards I have done this past month. The Rich Razzleberry "Praying for you..." and Mellow Moss Easter cards were done yesterday at Alice's workshop. The other cards were from my downline meeting earlier this month.

Enjoy!

My Son's Valentine's Day Card




My wonderfully talented son made this card yesterday. He knew that we were making the Valentine's Day cards for the Shut-ins at church last night. So, on the way home from school, he was telling me about his ideas for some Valentine's Day cards. I've included his sketches here too. He had two ideas. Here is the card from the sketch on the right.

A little bit of background on this... He received his own "child's" metal detector for Christmas from his Grandma Nancy. AND his Grandpa in Florida also has a "real" metal detector. At Christmastime, the boy, Daddy, and Grandpa found some change on the beach, so...

There is absolutely no stamping involved in this, no fancy scissors, no special papers. Just a child's idea and his love. Now, I like stamping - and I appreciate all the fancy things I use to make my cardmaking easier and more "WOW!" - but I think this card is the nicest card on this blog and that I have ever seen. Of course, that could just be a proud mama talking too! :)

Enjoy!

Haitian Disaster Relief

Haitian Disaster Relief

On January 12, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope.

From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set you sell will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

Contact me to order this set and help others while doing so...

Valentine's cards for Shut-ins


Thanks to the wonderful group of stampers/scrapbookers at our church, I am doing only the Valentine's Day card design for 2010! Thank you all for volunteering for the other months!

AND all of the ribbon was donated by one of our church members. Apparently she purchased the ribbon from a Big Box store and they don't accept ribbon returns. God is so good by allowing her to donate this ribbon to us!

SO, here is the design and card I did for our January meeting. Hope the shut-ins like it. I modeled it after another card I saw on a stamping group I belong to. It is GREAT that everyone shares their gifts and talents!

Enjoy!
