Feeling the Love


Since I’ve been homebound in recovery mode, card-making has taken a back seat.  I made a handful of cards prior to my surgery and since then I’ve received some cards from my Pals and friends.

Wow, do I feel the love. This is what card-making is all about.  Sending them to loved one’s and friends who can use a pick me up. If I could only describe how good I feel when getting something special in the mail besides a bill. (LOL)

Just Because

This very sweet one was given to me by my friend Rose. I met Rose last year through a referral program sponsored through my up-line where we find local Pals.  We communicated on-line and after I returned from deployment she came over for my shoebox card swap. She’s been my friend ever since and I truly enjoy her friendship.

Again, the friends I’ve made in the last three years are priceless. Learn more about my Circle of Pals here. Get your card-making on and be on the look out for my next post because I’ve got more cards to show you that I’m so excited about.  They are so darn cute, just like little kittens.

Te Estraño (I Miss You) Blossom Branch in Morning Meadow

Morning Meadow Te Extrano1

Te Estraño translates to I Miss You.  I have sent various versions of this card many times in the last five months.  I may not make bundles of the same card, but I certainly use the same sentiments over and over again.  Why?  Because the Deseos Pequeñitos along with the English version (Teeny Tiny Wishes) come with every occasion stamp you will ever need.

Get Well Sooner with Freshly Made Sketches #32

Gosh, I feel ashamed, I haven’t made a get well card in so long that I can’t even remember when I made one.  I suppose that’s a good thing right… no one has been ill enough to get one… =)  I also figured that since our new catalog will be coming out soon, and the retired list has posted, I want to make as many cards with my remaining retiring supplies.  You can get a great deal on the retiring stuff now while supplies last too!


I also took adavantage of this time to create this card with the Freshly Made Sketches #32 card challenge layout.  I couldn’t believe that I had card block when I saw the layout… LoL.  But here it is for you to enjoy and replicate.
