From Sketch to Sentiment...






I made a promise to myself that I would send more letters out this year. I really AM trying to catch up with friends but life (sometimes) gets in the way. I started these little sketches this winter and FINALLY ran them up to staples and had some prints made. I attached most of these to repurposed note cards and scrap book paper. Those went onto a piece of 81/2 x 11 inch card stock. I bought a big box of greeting card envelopes and made these cards. I have been making cards since I was little and my skill level hasn't improved much.:) I think I may add some vintage buttons but I wanted to keep them simple so I would be motivated to make more. I have a daughter home with mono right now and a son who hasn't been feeling well with other issues. Both are feeling a little better so hopefully I will be more productive, soon.:)

Oh I hope you write a letter to me!!! The cards are divine and turned out beautifully. I hope Ellory will be feeling better soon, Callie had mono a few years ago and it can be a long process til they feel 100% again. Are you going to start selling the cards? I am sure they would be a big hit...hugs, Cheryl
