Cardmaking – Dec. 2014

IMG_4850This is another activity that I did at last night’s craft group.  I had been wanting to send a card to my grandma who recently became a widow, and a couple we go to church with who are dealing with a lot of medical issues.  Sometimes it’s nice to get a card in the mail when you start to feel alone, discouraged, or forgotten.

I brought limited supplies with me, so I had to work with what was in my laundry basket.  As you can probably tell, I’m a fan of simple, clean-looking designs.  I’m particularly pleased with how these cards turned out and can’t wait to send them off in the mail!
