Made for me by Mary and Brenda

Hi Everybody,

Over the last few days I have shown you some cards that have been made FOR me and not by me. Because I make cards I find that at Birthdays and Christmas time people won't make and send me cards because they don't make them like I do.

It wouldn't do for us all to make cards the same and the simple fact that it is handmade by YOU makes it super special to those that you give them too. Give the cards that you make with love and be proud of them.

Earlier this year I started a Card Class in my own home and most Wednesdays we have met and made cards.  I regularly post on these pages the cards that my two lovely ladies make.

Here are the ones that they have made in their own homes and gave to me at the last class for this year.


So you can see that I have a beautiful collection of cards that are there for all who visit my house to see.  I will be keeping each and every one of them as "Keepsakes" and thank you for taking the time to make me these lovely cards.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  9. Good Morning Christina. You have the most joyful soul and the most kindest spirit. You remind me soooooo much of my "Auntie Rose". It's wonderful how you can touch so many hearts and inspire so many people. I'd say your ladies have done you proud here. Their cards made for you are absolutely beautiful! I wish you and your family and the "family of bloggers" a most wonderful Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

  16. I also make cards & find that some of my friends, but mostly my family, are also afraid to send me cards for the same reasons. It is such a shame that by others feel so intimidated by our creations. I encourage all to make cards if you are so inclined, no matter your style. They are lovely, each & every one!
