Heartland Card

Hi Friends,

What a nice masculine card.  I have a coworker who has been off work for awhile due to some health issues.  I have had him in my thoughts and prayers now for a few weeks.

I decided I wanted to send him a card to try and cheer him up a bit.

I love this stamp set so much. I even used it to make my dad's Fathers day card.  The woodgrain paper just suites the theme so well.  The linen thread also seems to just fit right in.

This is a very easy and quick card.  If your looking for a card for the man in your life, I hope this one might meet your needs.

Sharing Our Cards

Hi Friends,

I have already posted a video this week of a card I made for one of my friends.  I have another one I'll be posting tomorrow.  Both of my friends are going through some health issues.  I just wanted to cheer them up and let them know I was thinking of them.

Sometimes we get so caught up in life we forget about the important things.  I am really, really going to focus on sending out my handmade cards.  Nothing is better then letting friends and loved ones know we are thinking of them and care.  It's even better when we send them a handmade card or gift.

I am encouraging you all to do the same.  Even if our friends or family are not going through something, just send a happy card, birthday card, or a simple card to say hello.  Lets share our creativity with our family and friends.

I am so excited!!! My preorder from the holiday catalog will be here any day.  I am thinking of doing an unboxing video for you all.  

There are so many beautiful new stamps in this catalog.  I am just so excited for the holiday season to get here.  I love Summer, and hate to see it go, but I know Fall is right around the corner, and I love to make all those cute holiday treat holders and cards!

I will get the holiday catalog in the mail  next week for you all.  I want you to have plenty of time to make  out your wish list.

Oh So Eclectic Card

Hi Friends,

I have a special card I made for a member of my downline.  She shared with me she was having some health issues.  I am hoping my card might put a little smile on her face.

It seems that a lot of my friends are going through health issues.  I have a coworker who is also facing some health problems.

It's always nice to get a card, phone, call, or visit from a friend or family member when we are sick or down.  I hope my card lifts her spirits.

I decided to use the, Oh So Eclectic stamp set as well as the  Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set.  This was my first time using both of these stamp sets.  I love them both!  I love the look of watercolor that the Oh So Eclectic stamp set delivers.

I used Island Indigo ink and cardstock.  The DSP did to have it listed as a color combination, but I love how it turned out.
