7 Jan

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the importance of greeting cards. Whether it’s a holiday, birthday or thank you card, these little envelopes of thought become valuable keepsakes. Although I love Papyrus, I’m not in the position to be spending $8.00 on a single bejeweled card. Blank  greeting cards and some unique stamps make for a creative card that’s both easy on the eye and the wallet.

    So Pretty. I’m probably getting married in the next year “fingers crossed” and I’m was thinking of doing my own invites. Great tips 🙂

    Great idea. As you know I am BIG on sending thank-you notes after you visit someone. Glad to hear you are feeling the same. It does become more important especially in this day or e-write. So nice to get a card in the mail. Mini paper clip is adorable. Nicely done.

    Ooh! I LOVE this! Maybe we should do this for our thank you cards!

    Fabulous tips! There’s nothing like receiving a greeting card – especially if its homemade.

    I was really into making greeting cards for a while, I need to get back to it because I did enjoy it.

    I love creating my own greeting cards and have done so for many years. More recently I have been creating my own on my computer, especially if I am in a hurry.

    Good idea to use the mini peg…might have to steal that one…much nicer than using the usual blob of sticky tape! Thanks for following me too 🙂
