By | Cards, Thank You Cards | No Comments

When did the thank you card die? We still get a few here and there, but overall it seems like sending thank you cards, as well as other cards, has gone the way of the dinosaur. Sure it’s nice to get a thank you email or text, but nothing beats a real card in the mail. Especially if it’s handmade! Cards don’t have to take a long time to make or send. If you’re a card maker, make a stack of thank you cards at once so you have one when you need one. Then make a stack to give to your…

Quick & Easy Thank You Cards

By | Cards, One Sheet Wonder Cards, Thank You Cards | 4 Comments

Garage sale weekend is always crazy around here, but I still managed to make these quick & easy thank you cards… You know I love my One Sheet Wonders.

Yes, I said Valentine. Just because most of the cards I made for the class were for Valentines doesn’t mean you can’t use the templates for other kinds…

Cards of Many Colors

By | Cards, Gift Ideas, Thank You Cards | No Comments

Today’s idea is brought to you by my friend Donna Penix. When she showed me this set of cards I knew that I had to share them with you. I just love when you can take one card and make it with a bunch of different colors and get a lovely set like this!! They make a great gift when you put them all together or you can always send them one by one. Donna used the 2014-2016 In Colors from Stampin’ Up! to make these cards. The colors are Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon and Hello…
