More Simplicity

Again, more cards made by easily layering printed and plain paper and adorning with punched circles, hearts and words. You can do it!

Remember, cards don't have to be complicated to be pretty and sophisticated. This card is simple card stock folded with a layer of a printed pattern paper adhered to the front. The finishing touch is a heart punched out of the base card stock color and you're done! (To make the punched heart have the look of some texture, I did take a background type stamp and stamped it using Versa Mark ink... if you don't know what that is, it is an ink -available at that leaves the impression that your paper has a water mark.)

Kentucky Inspiration!

Here I am in Louisville, Kentucky and ready to make some more cards and do some more paper crafts!

Visit my new business site! Many of my creations on this "Heidi's Cards" blog are made with Stampin' Up! products and I really gain all my inspiration from being involved with Stampin' Up!

And I am inspired by my new location... living in Kentucky is going to be great!

With Love...

My husband is a veterinary internal medicine specialist.  He can be a huge help to many pets and their owners... but, unfortunately, many of the patients he sees are very sick and his job is just to manage symptoms to help them feel as good as they can until... well, until they pass on.
I try to supply my husband with handmade sympathy cards to send to his clients.  Sometimes he needs more than I can keep up with... but I like to make each one individually.  I think each person who is mourning the loss of a beloved pet should get a special card.  I know that what my husband writes inside his cards (handmade or not) is the part that makes them special... I just hope that the people who really need the touch of a handmade card get one.  (I pray to God that He takes care of that part.  I am sure He does.)

Well... Hello there!

Real Life, as it says on this card... Real life can be pretty hectic.  Real life can be stressful.  Real life can be more wonderful than words can express.
I have been still making cards (and scrapbooking here and there).  I just have not been posting cards!  I know, I know... I have promised in previous posts that "now I am back" and "I promise to post more", but it gets to be, well, real life.
So here is a card I made to send the boys' school photos in for a family member.
Real Life.  Don't miss it!
