Getting Crafty

cards rose 001

I miss making cards with my friend, Sharon.  We use to designate one day a month, it was a ton of fun.  She lives an hour away, so in the winter, we don’t get together much.

So I was on my own the other day and low and behold, I got the urge to get the card making materials out.

My printer doesn’t make good color copies anymore so I just made due with what I had.

I put a new printer on my ‘list to obtain’ this year.

I had a lot more fun than I should have, without my friend, Sharon.  When the snow clears, we need to do more of this.

  7. I should try to make some. I need a few cards and don't want to go out in the cold today!

    I just wanted to let you know that you are listed as "noreply" blogger which means that when I try to respond to your comments, my emails have no where to go. If you add an email address to your profile, I'll be able to respond to your comments. It has something to do with changing over to Google Plus and there are tutorials on it if you Google "noreply" blogger. Hope that helps!

  8. These are so pretty Karen and this is a perfect way to spend a cold dreary winter day.
