Hanging Out at the Beach!

Many people enjoy being on the beach. Some are fortunate enough to live by the ocean water, while others choose to visit the seasides.

If you can’t be at the beach, at least you can have a card that reminds you of the beach!

Seashells by the Sea!

The ocean waves can be so tranquil. I can stare at the ocean and listen to the waves for hours; it is so peaceful. Maybe that is why I love to create cards that remind me of the ocean seashore.

I thought I would share a couple of cards that I created that remind me of sitting by the ocean.

These cards are perfect to send a note to a friend to say hi, or even say ‘thank you’ to someone. I can see these cards being displayed in a beach house!

I would love to create a seashell card for you! Who doesn’t love the ocean and seashells?

(Most of the cards I feature on my blogs can be created for you! Just leave a note in the comments section or contact me at horsemarkcards@gmail.com for special requests or more information.

Mother’s Day Cards!

The official Mother’s Day is almost here! Unofficially, we should acknowledge our moms everyday! That makes sense to me!

I thought I would share a few cards I have created for this special holiday.

These card designs can also be changed into other types of cards. This is another reason I enjoy creating handmade cards, so many ideas can be used in different ways.

Thank you for visiting today, and enjoy your creative day!

April Showers Bring May Flowers & Fruit!

This blog title sure sums up how the weather has been in northern California this year! We have had record rainfall, which is great, but it seems to come all at once! Fortunately, we have had several days of sunshine sprinkled in between all the rainy and windy days!

We moved into our new home and are discovering the new plants in our yard. A grapevine, orange tree, loquat tree and a fig tree are blooming now. I can’t wait to see how the fruit will be! Not sure about the loquats, but it will be interesting to see how they taste! (I’m not a fig lover, except in cookies! If anyone has a recipe to share, it will be appreciated!)

My creative room is about eighty percent complete. I have created a few cards already and I would love to share this special one I designed for
someone who loves flamingos!

I love Graphic45 papers, and I have had this paper for awhile so it was wonderful to finally be able to use it! I love the contrasting colors, and my customer really liked this card. I had the flower appliques that matched the colors, so it was the perfect touch! This was designed as a Mother’s Day card, but I can certainly see me creating note cards, thank you cards, or birthday cards from the other panels with this beautiful paper!
