Pretty Cards

One of my greatest joys is receiving handwritten notes from friends and loved ones.  The beauty of a person's handwriting, along with their written word, is like hearing the sound of their voice.  It's precious.

Although I love receiving notes, I think I enjoy giving them even more.  Most of the cards I send are handmade - even the 100+ Christmas cards we send out each year (ok, once we have children this may change....but for now I love it). 

June 08 034 I've been making lots of cards lately for birthdays, graduations and thank you's, so I thought I'd share a few.  They are simple, but pretty.  The one to the left, I made for Sara (Happy Birthday my friend - you spring chicken).

 

June 08 029These are sweet too, using the Hambly rub-ons and new Heidi Swapp collection.  I also used the Basic Grey distressing tools to age the edges a bit. 

My next assignment is to make a collection of personalized thank you notes with my initials.  I have made them many times for friends, but never for myself.  I'll post as soon as they are ready.   

So....hint hint....if you'd ever like to make a girls day (yes, I mean me) just send me a note!
