I am not a scrapbooker, but I love the idea of scrapbooking. I love paper, ribbon, pens, scissors, buttons, glue, stamps, and stickers and all the other fun stuff that goes along with scrapbooking. In order for me to fill my desire to buy lots of paper, ribbon, pens, scissors, button, glue, stamps and stickers I make cards instead.
The cards pictured above are the Mother's Day cards that I sent out a wee bit late. To my defense, I was waiting for Sadie's 18 month pictures to come in so I could include them in the card. I do love writing letters, but I don't have that much to say where I have to send a letter twice in one week. It's hard to tell, but the little pocket is holding a packet of tea. The same concept could be used for gift cards or to hold a stash of cash for the graduate. These are the first cards that I've ever used my sewing machine on and the stitching turned out kind of cute.
