Gift Set Ethnic Cards

Quote for today:

Judgement comes from experience.
Great judgement comes from bad experience.
Bob Packwood

I always tell my son the best way to learn is from other people's mistakes. Right now, he would rather make his own. So be it...


Hello All,

This is a set of cards I made for a gift. It is a very late gift, but ethnic style cards are not my forte, so it took me a while to get it together and come up with something. They are blank inside.
The object was also to keep them as flat as possible because I know she doesn't have money for extra postage. That was also a challenge. (This is actually a set of twelve)

It's Your Day...

Get Well Soon....


Happiness Always.....

Thinking of you....

Many Blessings...
