Birthday Card

Hello. As a cardmaker I do not shop for cards and was shocked to find out how much cards cost in general stores. I told my relatives never to buy cards again and if they need one, I always have some extras or I can make one for them. Same day my sister ordered a card for her mother in law. Here is the quick card I made for her

 This card is 3D and the problem I Have with handmade cards is that they never fit in the envelopes.
Any solutions?

Bible Verse Card

We had cold, but sunny weather this week and all my thoughts are about upcoming spring. What flowers to plant, shrubs to trim etc. Most of my projects this week show where my thoughts are as they all have flowers on them.
I made this pretty card "just because",  I'll end up giving it to a friend, but for now I love looking at it, this verse is such an inspiration to me. 

Blue flowers are handmade

Baby Boy Card

It is a baby boom in my family. Seems like everybody I know are having babies. There will be two babies born in March to my friends and family and I am invited to a baby shower this weekend.
The card I made is for expectant mother of a boy.

Inside is a pocket to hold a gift card and I also decorated inside with footprint vellum paper.

This card was made with following challenges in mind

I DO. Wedding Card

Cheery Lynn Designs blog has new challenge this week and it is Tickled Pink. To tell you the truth I am not big fan of pink color, but I love how my card turned out.
I made a wedding card in pastel colors. Mostly pink with a little blue

Paper has very pretty shine to it
Inside is a little pocket for a gift (money or gift card)
