On bottom card I used dp by MME and sticky stitches (I have had for about a thousand years).
I am a hoarder of all things beautiful. I collect them to use on projects and then cannot bring myself to use them because they are too pretty. Is there anyone out there like me? I have decided to start using the beauties in my stash. How about you? Some of you are fantastic about using "all things beautiful" and I am envious of you. I must break my need to hang on to everything, now is the time.
I read on someones blog that they were going to try to send out 365 cards this year, not one everyday, but maybe several a few days a week. I loved this idea and would like to try it myself. I am not sure if I will be able to reach 365 but I would like to come close. I know I love to receive "real" mail that is not a bill, or advertisement etc... I would love to receive a card, handwritten by a friend. It always brightens my day, so I am going to make and send out cards to touch the people in my life and hopefully cause a few smiles along the way. These two cards are my first of hopefully many more to come, I mailed them out today.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend.
