I LOVE to create greeting cards. This is a place
for me to share some of my favorite cards with family,
fellow card-makers,and friends.
Update: Since I began this card-making blog in 2009, we have moved to a warm, sunny place, retired, and gotten very busy. Even though my love of making cards has not lessened, my time "for" card-making has diminished. I had actually considered taking down my blog because of my lack of time to make and post cards. Instead I will try to post more regularly with a variety of things. Please bear with me while I attempt to expand my topics.
PEO Chapter Fundraiser Projects
My PEO Chapter needed to think of a new fundraiser. A number of years ago, I designed some cards for us to make and sell for a fundraiser within the chapter. We decided to do it, again, this year in conjunction with our annual silent auction in November. I designed these three cards which we will be making at two work-bees this month at my house. It is a great way to get together, too, and get to know one another even better.
Today I begin "trimming" all the cardstock elements. I have them all measured out and all the materials ordered. They should arrive tomorrow from Stampin' UP. In the meantime today, I will work from my supplies and keep track of that. I will be using most of the colors shown in the pictures except I will be using So Saffron for the yellow card (I just grabbed some yellow Bazzill from my stash for the example). And I may use Pear Pizzazz instead of Old Olive on some of the cards with the butterflies as I hear Pear Pizzazz looks great with the Rich Razzleberry, too. :D
We are hoping to make sets of 5 cards per package. I just bought a couple of small "Thank You" stamps yesterday so that we can make both "Thinking of You" and "Thank You" cards with these designs. If we are lucky, we might get 50 - 100 cards made during the two work-bees. If we don't get them all finished, at least, we will have them cut and ready to go. I can just keep putting them together at my leisure.
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy this beautiful fall season wherever you are!
