Flowery cards

Here are a few cards I’ve made lately that have made me (and hopefully the recipients!) happy. I’ve been trying to actually send the things that I make out, and it feels good! I encourage all of you to do the same. Make a card or ten, and put them in the mail. Make someone’s day or week. You never know if they need just the kind of pick-me-up you can fit into an envelope!

Flowers and Flourish is one of those sets I wasn’t sure I needed, and it ended up jumping on my order at the last minute. Hey, it has coordinating patterned paper and funky petals. . .how could I pass it up?

This one was made for a friend’s birthday, and then I ended up giving it to my mom so she could give it to her friend. I hear it was a hit! Layout’s from Beate.

Here’s another Beate layout:
