Snowflake Gift Card Holder






Hi again, Paper Temptress Fans!!  This is my newest creation that I wanted to share with you.  I decided that I wanted to make a special holder to be able to put gift cards in.  I thought this would be a fun way for the receiver to be able to “unwrap” their gifts.  Today’s project features a few different card stocks from Paper Temptress.  I have used  Sapphire Mica/Metallic, Midnight Blue Vellum and Vintage Silver Lustre card stock.  Be sure to stop by Paper Temptress and see these and all the other beautiful card stock she carries.  I bet you will have a hard time picking your favorite, there are so many to choose from.

Thanks again for stopping by today.  Until next time……Happy Paper Crafting!!

Sharing my work for Card Cupids

I am not sure how many of you are familiar with Card Cupids and the wonderful work that they do.  Here is a little more information about some of the special things that they do.  Card Cupids work to help brighten the day of a special child by providing with special care packages.  The packages include handmade cards, everyday need items as well as crayons, coloring books, and stuffed animals.  These packages are delivered to children in hospitals and other places that children need special mail.  If you are interested in donating handmade cards or items for the care packages, visit them at there website.

These are a few of the cards that I recently designed as a guest design team member in September. Please take a moment to take a look my creations and then make sure to stop by Card Cupids and see how you can help brighten a child's day.

A Few More Memorial Album Shares

Good Evening.  We are back to share with you again today a few more pages of my mother-in-law's Memorial Album.  As we have been posting these pages I am truly reminded how much she was loved.  The first two pages shares memories from one of my mother-in-law's best friend.  Thy both loved to dance and often danced together when no one else was available.  They also shared a love of card playing.  We actually all still get together and play cards regularly. 






 

The last two pages contain special pictures and memories from what we always refer as "The New York 5".  The ladies are childhood friends of my mother-in-law.  They have been friends for more than 60 years.  Even after my mother-in-law moved to Ohio.  They are a great group of ladies.  


 


Thanks for stopping by.  Please take a moment and leave us a comment.  We love to hear what you think.  Until next time Happy Paper Crafting!!
