Cards for a Valued Customer

One of the many sweet people I've had the privilege of meeting through crafting is a local friend named Johannah.  I met her about a year ago at a craft boutique I was doing in a part of town that's "off my beaten path"; yet I'm so glad I went because it allowed me to meet her there.  Now, when she purchases something from me, we meet on my side of town where all the good Thrift Stores are located.  We both enjoy that quite a bit.  She ordered some cards, and wants a variety of sewing theme, Paris/Europe, flowers, shabby, etc.  Here are a few of the cards I've made for her order.  I have three more to make before her order (of one dozen) is complete.

Since I made these cards, I figured that I would enter some of them in challenges.  Why not, right?   Here are the challenges I'm entering. - Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes - Really Reasonable Ribbon - Flowers & Ribbon Challenge - Any of these cards would qualify.  They all have seam binding, and some also have lace.  A girl can NEVER have enough ribbon. - Young Crafters Unite - Challenge #10 FLOWERS

Before I go, I want to say a special word of thanks to my dear friends in the Lord, Bill and Holly.  They were gracious enough to loan me a digital camera for a couple of weeks.  It's such a blessing to have friends who are true Proverbs 17:17 friends.  Through thick and thin, they ARE those true friends who are always there for us, and that is very rare in this world.  I am grateful to God for them.

Thanks for stopping to take a peek.  Have a blessed day and a great week.



  1. Karen, these are fabulous! Johannah will be delighted with them. I'm so pleased that you have an outlet for your creativity :o) I used to sell a lot of cards and gifts but my outlets got too competitive and others were selling their cards at 3 for the same price of one of mine! so now I make them and give them away to family and friends and a couple of charities
