So, it has been quite a while since I have had the opportunity to craft. And, wow...how I have missed it! I am just getting back into the crafting groove and it feels gooood. I have made some purchases lately....some JustRite Stamps, some dies....Some Taylored Expressions and I am really looking forward to getting them out to play. I also have re-contacted ChemoAngels....I took a break this summer knowing that my craft time would be nil. But now I am ready to get back into that program and have also looked into Operation Write Home. I like the freedom of making many different types of cards and love to give them aways so what better way than to donate cards than these two organizations!
My oldest daughter recently completed a MS walk with her friends and she wanted me to make her some thank you notes to send out. I was just back from our trip and kinda dry when it came to ideas....even thank you note ideas! Then I saw this card here on my blog friend Robin's blog and EUREKA! - I had found my card idea....Thanks to Robin of course. Instead of a Christmas tree (which really wouldn't have made any sense for my cards hehee) I decided to go with a heart because my daughter showed such "heart" in embarking upon this walk. I loved Robin's idea of the ribbons and sequins and thought that it would look cute, young and fresh....just like my 23rd old daughter. So, I created an assembly line and made 15 of these cards with scraps and bits of various ribbons. I love how this turned out and it was so simple and quick! I used a Paper Smooch sentiment that I thought would fit the card style when and then mounted on scraps of colored paper before mounting on white cardstock.
The colors really didn't turn out well in my photo's. In real life they are fun and bright but not at all "neon-y-ish". My daughter has received them and she LOVED them too and all have been sent out to her various supporters.
Here are the cards....
