Card Confession

So, I don't really make cards. I am scared of making cards. I worry that people looking at my cards will wonder why I was too cheap to stop by Hallmark. But this weekend on the girls vaca (can't believe it was a week ago!) I decided to give it a go.

These cards are nothing special, but they do have a purpose. I like to leave little notes in Karl's suitcase when he goes out of town, so these will cover me for a while.












I think my favorite part of these cards is the fact that I was able to use up the big stickers that come with the 7gypsies 97% complete sheets. I don't think I've ever used one of those, and boy do I have A LOT of them.

I think they turned out beautifully. If people think you're cheap then forget them. It shows you spent time and energy making them. I love homemade cards.

Those are great! I get kinda afraid of cards, too. But, it's nice to push yourself and then see what wonderful creations you can come up with!

You are a genius! I never use those big stickers either! May just have to make some! I think it is sweet that you made the cards for your husband too!
