Roses and fairies are
two of my favorite things, so combining them on this card was easy to do. This
card will be for a niece who is having some “issues” about her looks; she is
the “cute” one and thinks her older sister is the “beautiful” one. Perhaps the
verbiage will hit home for her.
These purchased small
blank journals are perfect for just about everyone on your gift list. The
journals are small and fit into a purse or jacket pocket. They are easy to
customize either with the recipients initials or different themes. My “guys”
(husband, step son, son-in-law and grandson) are all turkey hunters and
fishermen, so I had fun creating the journals for them to keep track of where
and when they saw turkey tracks or when the “big” fish got away. I also like to
add a small calendar inside the front cover.
Remembering Arnolds “Rs” - I will be using cereal box type chip board
for all of the die cuts.
I’ll be back to making
or casting paper next week…..smile.

Each day the temperature
gets a tiny bit lower. You can tell that the beginning of fall is just around
the corner. Several close friends have birthdays this month and I wanted to
make special cards for them. I have always done “fall” colors in creating their
cards and wanted to do something different this year but still honor the fall
Pretty “girlie” type
cards are so easy to create, but I am often challenged to come up with cards
for the men in my life. These two cards came together so easily and were quick
to complete. I was able to create 6 of each card in about an hour (not counting
creating the handmade paper).
