One Lone Card

Tomorrow I am going to a wedding shower. I had to leave my big project and get a card made. I fiddled around with it and came up with this. I used Summer Garden and More Love from
pcCrafter, some flowers from my flower box, and the hearts are in a box of mixed colored hearts from Michals. SU paper and punches. The heart centers on the flowers are from a self stick group of heart. (I do not know why this is all underlined--I couldn't get rid of it)

This is the inside with a computer generated message. I also added the 100th Psalm.

The back is below.

Dahlia folds

My good friend, Jo, sent me these two pictures tonight to show me what she had been doing. Since I haven't anything of my own, I will share these, as I thought they were just lovely!! She has just purchased her CuddleBug and received her first sets of nesties. As you can see, she is having fun. She is in the middle of making sets of cards to send to her relatives in Italy and wanted cards that did not require any verbage on them. I am assuming that one of these will go into each set.

40 thank you cards

I just finished 40 thank you cards for my two surrogate grandsons, who, by the way, DO write thank you notes! (They are well-trained!) I had to think hard and deep to make them without any girlie embellishments on the cards!!

SU stamp sets, Set Sail and Circle of Friendship--paper is 'not quite navy'
SU 'real red' paper, punches and stamp set from a birthday set

SU stamp set, Classic Pickup--SU 'gray' and 'black papers, and DP I've had for a while

Image from snowman set from PC Crafters--color drops from The Robin's Nest
SU designer paper, and stamp from an acrylic set

SU stamp, Classic Pickups, with SU designer paper

...and then the question was what to put them in???? I tried several different things, and decided to just make some deep boxes to hold each boys' cards.

Here are the boxes! They are going to work splendidly!
