Oh, Hello There

I recently dropped off another batch of cards to a local nursing home. (I include handwritten notes inside.) Since I used 12 x 12 paper, I was able to make about 12 cards of each design. It's important to make the cards gender neutral so the cards can be given to anyone. I think both paper collections work well for either masculine or feminine cards.


Paper - My Mind's Eye - Quite Contrary collection
Stamp - Reverse Confetti
Circle die cuts - Spellbinders
Ink - My Favorite Things
Brads - from stash

  1. Oooh - I love the gray and yellow! Those cards look very different even though you used the same sketch. I am sure you brightened everyone's day at the nursing home!

    1. Thanks, Jennifer. I love using the same sketch with different pattern papers. The cards never look the same. Have a great day!

  2. You are very kind, generous and thoughtful. I'm sure the cards were a big hit. You also find some beautiful papers. These are lovely in grays and yellows. I really like how you got such different looks from the same sketch. Thank you so much for sharing as you do. I have to say, the set of fall cards I made following your tutorial has helped me SO much when I needed cards and didn't have time to make them on the spot. I've received many compliments on them. I so appreciate what you do!

    1. Thank you, Jeanne. There is so much darkness and hate in the world, I want to do my best to shine a little light and show kindness still exists. Even something small, like a card can brighten someone's day. :) I'd love to see your cards if you share pictures of them. It brightens my day knowing my cardmaking has inspired others to create as well. Thank you for your continued support. Have a beautiful day! :)
