‘She Loves Pink’ Thank You Card!

Hello Dear Readers!

We enjoyed our recent trip to Oregon and California to visit family and friends. We only stayed in a hotel one night, so I have several Thank You cards to send to express our appreciation for the wonderful hospitality we enjoyed during our trip.

This cute stamp from My Favorite Things is adorable. She is part of the Pure Innocence collection. I have had it for several years so it may not be available, but there are other cute stamps similar to this one!

I stamp the image on patterned paper and layer it on the image. It was perfect to put on a thank you card I created for a little girl that let me stay in her bed at her grandparents’ house. She loves pink!

The tiny rick rack was a perfect touch, along with the tiny butterflies! I usually decorate the outside of the envelope and I tuck the card between an embossed folder to protect it from the mailing process.

I hope she will be excited to receive this card in the mail! Little kids love getting mail addressed to them!

My stash includes this tiny rick rack I had from my grandmother’s sewing box. As you can see, the price on this indicates how old it is! It was still sealed and was perfect for this card and I can use it on a baby card too!

When I attached the rick rack to the card, I wanted to make sure it stayed in place. I wrapped it around the top and bottom of the card, then secured it with a bit of glue. I have a handy trick I use to secure small items on cards.

It was fun creating this card and I hope it brings a smile to a very special five year old girl!

A Bit of Greens to Take Away the Blues!

Hello!

These are difficult times in our world today and I hope you and your families are doing well.

Since so many people are sheltered in place, I have been creating and sending cards to residents of senior citizen homes and veterans.

Creating cards has given me a new purpose for my work. It relaxes me when I am creating, and I feel better giving my cards to so many who are not allowed to visit with their families and friends. It is a win-win project!

I am sharing this short post with a few cards I designed using colors of greens. I hope you like them.

Sharing cards has always been important to me, but today it becomes more vital. To receive a card in the mail can make a big difference when they are feeling lonely. It can brighten someone’s day and maybe even make them smile.

Thank you for visiting today. Remember to send a card to someone and pick up the phone and let them know you care.

Enjoy your day and stay safe,
Vickie

Scarecrow Season!

When I stamp this scarecrow on a card and then dress him in layered papers, he comes alive and makes me smile! He can be a simple note card or a thank you card. I can imagine him holding balloons to celebrate a birthday!
