Making Handmade Cards

When I first start to make cards, it normally will start with the papers I want to use. Is it a theme, such as a birthday….. Is it something basic like flowers or stripes that you can add other sayings with? This is where…

Thinking of You Cards –

Thinking of you cards can be for so many different things – because someone is having a hard time, or just because you want them to know you care and are “thinking about them”.  This is one of the final categories I tend to…
