Handmade Monday: Crazy About Cards

I like playing around with cards because they’re fun to make, relaxing, cheap and a great small-scale way for me to practice some pen work. When I make major mistakes, sending them soaring into the desk-side scrap bin is no big deal! They’re also useful for graduation parties, thank-yous, and all sorts of other events!

By the way, I am in no way advertising for this particular brand of cards; I just happened to find a giant package of them a while back at a very reasonable price and they work quite nicely!

Happy Monday-ing! 🙂
