First Monday - Well Wishing for All Occasions

In a world of e-mailing and social networking, a handmade card with a handwritten note is in itself a special event.  It's Mothers' day this month, but it's also a month for birthdays, invitations, thank you notes, announcements and more - a plethora of reasons to create a hand made card with a handwritten note to make someone's day even more special. 

Here are a few ideas.  Quick'n EZ to make, but priceless for the person who receives one.  The first card is very special. It's a "Get Well" card dedicated to Lisa Rojas.  Lisa is one of the designers in our group who is recovering from surgery.  As you "hop forward" please take an extra moment when you visit her blog to leave her an extra special comment.


This is a photograph taken last week.  I added a title in Photoshop then printed the image onto inkjet transparency.  The photo was trimmed then attached to white cardstock with pink brads.  It was then glued to the front of a pink card, embellished with pink pearl textured cardstock.   Here are more ideas, using more photographs, punched shapes, ribbon, textured paper and stickers.

Who will you write a note to this week?  It will definitely make their day...............

Our monthly GIVEAWAY will be on 0505 - Cinco de Mayo - National Scrapbook Day 
and my birthday.  So y'all come back now...................

Yours truly,
Julie :)


  1. I completely agree with you. There's nothing like a card in the (snail) mail to make someone's day.

    Love how you layered the photographs to make the cards. You have really inspired me to send a card off this week!

  3. Hello, I love your cards and I watch you show as well. Can't wait to go scrap me a card too. If I can't watch it then I record them. I love all of your ideas..
    KeepEm' coming
