Handmade Primitive Christmas Card

This Christmas card has a bit of a primitive feel to it. I'm not sure that it started out that way in the beginning, but by the time I was done tearing , cutting , and inking, this is what I ended up with. If you have a feeling to pass on some primitive vibes this Christmas, this could be the card for you. It's listed on Etsy in my Etsy store if you'd like to take a look...

Simple Friendship Note Card

There's always that friend that you can't live without... this is a great little note card to send to that person to let them know just how special they are.  It's a simple design with a great message :

--One of my greatest blessings is having you for a friend.

I think that anybody who gets a card bearing these sentiments will definitely know that their frindship is treasured...

Friendship Card

I like the idea of letting friends know just how important their friendship is, so this card shines a light on friendship. It's a simple design, and it doesn't have a lot of words on it, but it gets the message across...

Teacher Of The Year Card

It's always nice to recognize a great teacher. I made this card for a wonderful Spanish teacher who was chosen as the Teacher Of The Year for 2011 at one of our local elementary schools.

I think that we should always take the time to let our teachers know when they're doing an outstanding job.

Inspirational Bookmark

I like to design bookmarks that have little sayings on them. Just a simple way to share inspirational thoughts or a motivational message. This one is one of my favorites... 'Remember to count the really good blessings twice...'

Pretty Flat Cards With Stickers

I don't use stickers often, but I thought that these flowers were pretty, so I had to figure out where I would use them. I had these flat cards laying around and I decided that they were a great home for my pretty stickers. Now these cards are perfect for writing letters or for journaling... a splash of color and a hint of springtime...

A Bouquet of Hearts and Love Blank Greeting Card

It's a few more days before we get to the big "LOVE" day, so I thought I'd put this card up. I like this one because it's a simple expression of love. I think that sometimes we get caught up in only expressing our love on specific days. Why wait for just one day to say "I love you"? Everyday should be a "LOVE" day.

XOXO Punched Heart Flower Card

I recently bought a bunch of punched hearts from All About The Buttons (one of my favorite sellers) that were in her store on Zibbet, and this is one of the cards that I made with some of them. With Valentine's Day coming up I thought that I'd add it to the Etsy store.

Hearts are a really versatile shape that can become the base of lots of designs. I went with the flower on this one and added the button with thoughts of whose shop the punched hearts came from. :-)
