Several special days in April ... opportunities to show love with a handmade card. I've been taking time in recent years to try to make more cards instead of purchasing them. Partly possible because of the supply of scrapbooking paper & embellishments that I have collected over the years. And partly because it is hard for me to pay $3. or more to purchase a card. And I like to feel like I have given some time and love into the giving of a card, putting a little of my heart into it. (I do love all cards, though, store bought or handmade ... I treasure all the cards I have received, and usually save them!)
As life is full and my time is limited, though, I do not get as fancy as some do with their card-making ... thankful for ribbon and embellishments that you can use to make something special in very little time. Here are some that I made this past month:
|Such an exciting event ... the arrival and adoption of a sweet baby boy for good friends of ours!|
|And what fun to celebrate our two little grandsons, twins, turning 2 years old!|
|And our oldest granddaughter, turning 15! Where have the years gone? She is the sweetest ...|
|A big day ... my father turned 90 this month! A bigger celebration coming in July when all my brothers and their families will be here. We took him out to eat on his actual birthday and gave him this card.|
