Embroidery, knitting, sewing, spinning, weaving…

So, I made cards…


All right, this isn’t a fabric related post; however, I’m still writing about it since it’s still craft related. This past Friday, we celebrated my BF’s sons birthday. He turned 19 on on May 3.

Handmade card and envelope

I figured cash would be a suitable gift and so I hunted around to find an appropriate card. There was only one thing wrong… I found out that I was down to my last handcrafted card. Uh oh! It was a simple white embossed card that I’d made years ago. Also, there was no envelope. Oh no! Since I didn’t have time to make an envelope, I simply tucked the cash inside the card and stuck everything into a small gift bag.

Handcrafted Cards and envelopes that I made

However yesterday, I started making some cards.

Simple envelope and a card.

The above cards are simple to make, which meant no sketching, stamping, embossing, etc., was done; however, I will be getting a bit more elaborate later this week. I’ll make a few birthday and holiday cards.

While I was making cards, my daughter was beside me sketching and later she started playing World of Warcraft. It was a wonderful way to spend our Sunday and I hope we have many more of these lazy days.
