Cards

I have been making cards--on my own and with the group.

A small sampling of recently completed or almost completed cards:





It is a fun hobby, but don't think it is a cheap way to supply oneself with cards for every occasion.  There is just no end to the supplies one needs, I mean needs, for this entertaining occupation.

  1. How cool. I love the cards you are making. Very nice. I guess every hobby can get expensive.

  2. Lovely. I really like the third one with the ship. Is the port hole ring a piece of gasket material? Cool.

    1. The port hole is card stock that is embossed and punched. I like that one too because I need some masculine cards in my repertoire. I get carried away with the girling things up thing.

  3. It does look like a fun hobby. I'm sure the people who receive them love them.
    I have been making photo cards when I need a greeting card of some kind. I search my picture file for a suitable photo, and create a message inside that takes it's inspiration from the photo. I use card stock and matching envelopes and have a saved template on my computer for the verse format and a logo on the back. That's fun too..

  5. I am now addicted to card making too. I just use my photos though which is a lot easier. On the other hand, your cards are a lot more interesting and fun.

  6. You do really good work. I went to a card making party once and thought it was a lot of fun but it does take a lot of supplies. Hallmark gets my business but I bet those who receive your cards are happier because they know you put effort into them. .

  9. I used to make hand puppets which required lots of supplies, too. Fun hobby, but expensive. I donated them to a preschool and got a tax deduction.

  10. I've never made cards, but I did scrapbook for awhile and I know how pricey that got. I've still got lots of leftovers but no time or desire to use them.

    The cards are lovely, I'm sure the recipients will be thrilled.
