Mini Assorted Cards Group 2

My mini card group #2

There, now isn't that a better way to look at it?.... I'm really not an optimist, but I have been trying to be more optimistic and hopeful over the past several years...So I'm all in favor of this observation...

I am linking this post to this site:


These mini cards were made for a friend who makes gift baskets. I thought she could give them to her customers to include with their baskets when they give them away. That is why I tried to make them kind of general. They can write a small note inside. I have found from making cards for several people that many do not want to have to write much, sometimes signing their name is too much.

I have so many ideas in my head that I want to translate into cards! I'm trying to get started now. I want to make several sets of cards to give away as gifts. I will be working on that throughout the year.

I actually made more than I'm showing here, but I gave them away (AGAIN!) before I remembered to photograph them. This seems to be becoming a bad habit!....

I'm having a Stampin Up party next month, and I am making some cards to give away as a thank you for every one who comes out. I will also try to make a couple sets to give away as "door prizes". We shall see how that goes...LOL


Now I am a tea drinker, so this is probably my favorite of the whole bunch. :) This was made using some old Jolee dimensional stickers.

Thanks so much for your visit, and if you left me a comment.....

Your cards are all sooo cute...just the perfect size and what adoralbe stamps, papers, and details!!!

The pessimists in my life try to ignore me but I don't give up on them....LOL!!!!
