I love doing crafty things..I used to scrapbook at least two evenings a week, but haven't done that for quite awhile now. I never used to be a card maker, but in the last couple years I have been making a lot of cards. Of course never one to do things the easy way I always put a lot of detail (which equals a lot of time) into my cards. I like to only make cards for people I know will really appreciate them because I do spend so much time doing them. I also like to take a picture of the cards I make since I usually never see them again! I thought I would share the one I made today.
I made this card as a "thinking of you" card for my sweet cousin who I haven't seen in recent years, but is always in my heart. If you are reading this LaShawn...this is for you.:) We were recently "talking" via e-mail and we both agree that though the internet is awesome, it is kind of sad that the art of handwriting is disappearing. As children LaShawn and I wrote to each other often. That fact inspired me to make this card and send it to LaShawn and remind her what my handwriting looks like:) I am also sending her some hand dyed and wrinkled (by me) seam binding that I made for her daughter who is very artistic and I think will make something wonderfully creative with it.

Wanted to add a few pictures of the kids from the weekend..Oh, and has anybody ever printed their blog into a book? If so I would love any advice you have. Also a blogger friend at "The Midwest Cottage" is having her first giveaway. I know everyone loves those so I thought I would share it with you click here.

Thanks for stopping by--have a great week!
