I called a friend of my Mom's in Florida to have her help me out with a surprise gift that I can't purchase here and I sent her a Thank You card along with a check for the item. I can't say what that is because my Mom still hasn't received it yet! Anyway, I whipped up a quick card (it took me all of ten minutes) to send the enclosed money with a thank you note as well! I got my idea from the new Paper Crafts Magazine, Jan/Feb 2012, Page 68. I used the layout only. All the colors, as well as the theme, are different. I inked the edges, used my Notebook Paper Border Punch on the blue and the patterned paper. I then used my new stamp set that I have been dying to use...it is "Aviary" from Stampin' UP!. I LOVE it! I can see many cards coming from it in the future! The paper clip came from a pack I got from Walmart in the office supply section of the store. I stamped the front of the envelope to match! Simple, but classy, and always homemade!
I am a Christian Wife and SAHM of two wonderful kids. In my spare time (which there is little of) I create! I make mostly paper crafts but I also sew some as well. I will try anything once!
