{ handmade cards }

Who doesn’t love to receive a handmade card from a friend or family member?  I know that I do.  I get so excited when I receive a handmade card that I jump up and down an almost hyperventilate with excitement (silly right?). I was busy this past Saturday all day cropping with friends.  I wanted to do a quick post and share with you some of the handmade cards that I created.  I hope that when I give out these cards to friends and family that they will love them and have a big smile of Joy.
I used a bunch of new stamps; well new to me stamps that I got from a friend.  The stamps included sets from Unity Stamp Company and Stampin’ Up. See I found a way to use some of my rolled flowers that I have been creating over the past few months.

 I love making cards it is just so much FUN!
Do you like handmade cards?
Smiles, Paula

  4. Are you kidding me? Those are the only kind I dare give out! But I've learned only to give them to those that appreciate all of the extra time and effort put into the making of them! They are expressions from our artful hearts, right!

    I once gave someone a card...who after reading it began pulling out the bows and ribbons right in front of my eyes. I was shocked to the core....


    anyhow...your card creations are just lovely! thanks so much for sharing!
