More notes for hubby


When I started making cards, I made them as I needed them to use and give.  (It usually took me a couple of hours to make one!!)  Then I discovered challenges.  :)  For awhile, I made cards to fit the challenge.  That's ok, but often they were a card that I would not necessarily use.  Kind of a waste!  So now I make cards that I will use and that will often fit in challenges.  These cards, I will not technically use, but my husband will. :)



These cards are pretty CAS as were the last bunch I made for him.  This makes it easy for it to be mailed!  And also I can make more for him in a shorter amount of time.  The image is Assemble Together from Doodle Pantry.  It is cut using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and Labels One.  I used a MS border punch on some and ribbon on some.  I've got several more images printed, so I'll be back before too long with some more to show you.

I'm with you, Debbie. I don't make cards I won't use - challenge or not. These are wonderful images and I'm sure your husband appreciates you making them for him. I'm glad you shared them with us at ATSM this week.

Very elegant cards. I know what you mean about making cards to fit specific challenges. Most work, but some won't be used.
hugs,
Teresa

These are really wonderful Debbie and I bet your husband really loves sending them. I do hear you. I still have cards that I've made that I will never use. I've stopped entering challenges just to enter a card. If I can't use it I don't make it. But I really like these. Plain and simple is always very nice! Have a great week!
