Spring Cards


Lately, I’ve been wanting to make some cards.  There’s no particular reason other than wanting to have some simple handmade cards available to share… just because.

So I gathered up some supplies and my favorite girlie and we let our imaginations fly with paper, scissors and glue.

I included some of my recent birthday cards to recycle in our project.  The cards are so lovely and I thought this would be a fun way to give them new life.

Now my mom and some of my friends are crazy gifted when it comes to making cards. They’ve taken classes and have all kinds of tricks up their collective sleeves.

These are not those kind of cards.

This was just an excuse to sit with Tess and do something creative together.

I love that she hand wrote a message on this one.  I treasure her sweet penmanship.

We just played with the paper until we got something we liked.

Whatever we were inspired to do… that’s what we did.

Do you make homemade cards to share? Have you recently had the opportunity to work on a creative project with another person?  What have you been working on just for the simple pleasure of doing it?

      It was really fun to just hang out and not going or having to do anything. She is my little party planner, so I can only imagine what Mother’s Day will have in store. 🙂

      I have to admit, I thought of you and all the sweet cards you received that your daughter-in-law surprised you with. Wonder what she’ll be up to this year. 😉

      Ha! My recent favorite quote from my father-in-law is “We’re Mangelsdorfs and we’re talented. People are just going to have to deal with it.” It makes me laugh every time I think about it. Even as his memory fails, he doesn’t struggle with self-esteem in the tiniest bit.

      But thank you for your sweet words. We had a good time playing together.
