Everything old is new again!

I recently spent a long weekend in the Chicago area visiting my parents and other family members. I found out that my dear mother has been saving every single handmade card I have ever sent. (somebody loves me!) Many of them I had forgotten about, so to remember the techniques, I took pictures. Here are a couple for old times sake:

Enjoy & THANKS for visiting! (and hope I can remember how those ribbon roses were done!)

Thank you for the inspiration Mike!

My husband Mike knows how important cards are to me. Therefore buying a card for me, becomes a real challenge for him. He tells me the time it takes him to find a card that I would find not only creatively interesting but also says just the right things. I tell him that he does a wonderful job of being successful each time. Below is  the Christmas card Mike gave me and the a thank you note I created based on it. So, thank you Mike for the inspiration!

Enjoy and THANKS for visiting!
