My Card Project

I often wine whine and wank about oh i should be doing more creative projects and you know what? NO MORE EXCUSES!

I started simply, with some cards made from material lying around the house.  Literally.  I cut up magazines and newspaper.  It started with 4 Halloween cards.


Then some thanksgiving cards. Some of you might receive one of these, but I've made some other styles too.


Then a batch of Christmas cards.  Then another batch in another style which I won't show you because I want them to be a surprise.


I am up to 24 of the new style Christmas cards so far.  I have taken over the dining nook (it's too small to be a room) table but it doesn't matter as no one eats there except for me.  My husband walked past and said, those cards look really good.  A huge compliment as he usually doesn't notice my projects.

What an eye for design and color you have! I like how simple these are, but they're not.

Must be something in the air. I actually finished a pair of socks today that I've been knitting since JANUARY! Your cards are beautiful.

Love your cards! Especially the Xmas trees. One day maybe I'll stop (wining) whining about my emptying nest and remember that more time to myself will allow me to get back to card making.

Your cards are fabulous! My MIL saw the Halloween card on the kitchen table when she was visiting last week and commented on how nice it was. I proudly announced that my friend made that card! :)
