Thinking of You .......

Happy Friday everyone !

I am sure you have heard by now about the wonderful Jennifer McGuire
week 1
It is truly an amazing, caring, thoughtful challenge !
I encourage you to find out more information here .
I know the amazing feeling of receiving something handmade , it touches your heart and brings a smile to your face . With that in mind ... how wonderful to take the time to spread more , by mailing out cards to each other , to family, to friends , to anyone that comes to mind !

I chose to start with these two cards , one is a belated birthday card for a super talented crafter named Ka , her blog is Stamping Smiles Designs .

The adorable images are from
from Etsy . 

I started out in my mind to create a one layer card (not my strong point ) . Well..... four cards later , as you can see it didn't work out as planned lol !

The second one is a thank you card. There are so many wonderful people that come to my mind that I would like to thank . I am hoping to get these thank you cards mailed out by tomorrow . 

Here are the insides of my cards : 

Do not be too surprised if you see one of my future cards 
having this as the design on the front .
I like the simple elegance .
That is a big deal for me ~ clean and simple cards 
are another style I need lots of practice with :) 

If you are wondering what inspired my color, image choices ,
I was inspired by this : 
Ka from Stamping Smiles Designs is having a design team call ,

We are also having a design team call at

Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !
