June Birthdays





Two of my friends are having birthdays this month, so I thought I would get really crafty and make them cards.



It's time to start using some of the items that I have recently been collecting. I have started to collect old paper, game pieces, cards, ribbon etc. from flea markets, garage sales and some of my favorite shops.






My daughter Amanda recruited me to make thank you cards for her.

I was practicing with those. She just had a birthday in May, and needed the cards, since she received boat loads of presents from her friends and co workers.






I have been very excited about making these collage type cards. I have always liked being artistic.


I hope you are all having a creative and fun day!

Why pay 4.50 for an ugly card when you can make beautiful cards all by yourself. Those are really nice,I know they will love them!

Home made cards are so special. Wouldn't it be nice if more people did that.

Very nice! It's so lovely to give handmade cards, not only because it's special for the ones who receive them but also because they're fun to make!

Very nice blog! It's years since I was in California, whenever I read a blog from there it always makes me want to return and visit again!

I'm sure your friends will appreciate your beautiful one-of-a-kind cards! I cannot for the life of me get the link to the Cottage of the Month to work. For some reason it doesn't load. Can you send me a link to your home? Thanks!

Rosemary,
The cards are so pretty. Who needs Hallmark! There is so much ephemera out there to inspire us and you are tapping into it and the end result is fabulous.
Happy Belated B-Day to Amanda too!
