CARDS that I have made!

I am posting some photos here that I have made during the past week. Most of them I am just making for the fun of it, trying out new supplies and new techniques.

I like to have a stockpile of cards that I can write when the need arises for a card :)

I really like to make cards for people at the point of time that they are needed... I just like to make them with the particular person that I am giving the card to in mind... something just for them, the right colours etc, sometimes it is easier than others to make JUST THE RIGHT CARDS! :)

Sometimes one I have already made fits well and other times I feel that I need to make one from scratch!

"Thanks" card
black card, pink stickers, black polkadot ribbon,
'blooms' flower, pink ABC123 stickers, silver pen

"Thank-you" card
handmade paper, blue card, black card, flower ribbon,
ABC123 stickers

"Get Well" card
green card, blue card, scrapbook paper,
gift tags, black ribbon, mocha ABC123 stickers

"Birthday" card :: I made this one for a little friend of ours... His parents have been good friends of ours for a while. I was in college with his mother - she was one of my Old Chooks and one of the people God used to bring me to know Him... She has been a great friend and example to me in living for Christ! I am thankful to God for her/their friendship ... They also had a major part to play in Guy and I getting together, inviting us both to their place for dinner (at the request of Guy) all those years ago! :) They prayed for us at our wedding ... We've hung out now and then since... It's always GREAT to see them... Unfortunately, we have only seen them sporadically over the last few years ... It was nice to hang out with them last weekend and we're looking forward to holidaying at their place in April when we go there for their youngests' baptism - I am going to be godmother to one of their daughters which is very exciting but also a bit daunting - I am really stoked that they asked me ... I hope that I will be able to be a godly influence for her as she grows up ... one things for sure - there will be LOTS of prayer from me!!
