Senior Citizens and Kids!

Hello! Welcome to my HorseMark Cards blog page!

Postings on my blog have not been as regular as I would like; sometimes life gets in the way. However, I feel very passionate about sharing cards, so I think this post is very important. I hope you do too!

Technology has made it so simple to send a ‘thank you’, happy birthday’, ‘feel better soon’, or ‘congratulations’ greeting to someone. These greetings take a moment to send, and the recipient receives their message instantly!

Online greetings can be nice to send, however many people do not have access to smart phones, laptops, or computers. Many of our older senior citizens are included in this group. Some of them feel lonely when family and friends are not able to visit, and keeping in touch can sometimes be difficult for them. This is one of the reasons giving an actual greeting card is so important.

Thankfully, there are so many wonderful groups that have been working to make sure people receive an actual card in the mail. These are just a couple of the organizations that help make sure cards are sent to people who may need to be remembered the most.

Kind Cards for Cool Kids

Let’s remember the kids! Many need some encouragement, happy birthday, and congratulations greeting cards sent to them. Many kids are dealing with an illness, bullying, and feeling of loneliness. Siblings also appreciate being thought of and all kids love to receive mail addressed to them!

Birthdays, Thinking of You, or just a simple Hello card is a wonderful way to let people know they are not forgotten.

I am thankful for the many talented handmade card makers who help make the lives of our senior citizens and kids a bit brighter when they send them a card.

I have also contributed to these organizations and I am honored to be a part of making sure people are not forgotten.

Remember to give a card to someone special today!

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Enjoy your crafting day!

Junk Mail or Treasured Mail?

Junk mail fills many of our mailboxes, both online and in our physical mailboxes. We quickly toss this junk mail and look for the important envelopes.

A Little Bit of Spring!

A bouquet of flowers can brighten up any room. However, sending them to someone in a hospital or a rehabilitation center is not always practical.

Flowers created from paper can serve nearly the same purpose as the real ones! I created a card to brighten up the room of someone very special to me.

This is the first pop-up card that I created and I love all the ways it can be decorated. I love the little hedgehog; it is one of my favorite stamps.

I hope when people see this card they will smile!

‘Dodger Blue’ Get Well Card!

When you have a friend who has been under the weather giving her a get well card could cheer her up, especially when the card is customized for her. She is an LA Dodgers baseball fan!

We banter about our teams, (I am a San Francisco Giants fan!), but our friendship is solid!

Creating this card for my friend is just one of the reasons I enjoy designing handmade greeting cards! Everyone likes to get cards and I am happy to oblige!

Creating Cards for Kids!

These past few weeks I have enjoyed creating greeting cards for children.

Finding a greeting card in your home mailbox can be exciting for an adult, and even more so for a child. Especially when the card is sent just to say ‘Hello’.

It can be a very stressful day for people now, and kids are certainly not immune to having a bad day. Imagine a child receiving a card in the mail that just tells them you are thinking of them. That card could make a big difference in how the rest of their day will be.

I have always enjoyed creating cards for others. Greeting cards are not as popular today, but that doesn’t stop many people from giving them. I am happy to do my part in making someone’s day!
