Imagine

My newest order is filled with product from the soon-to-be-released 2014-2015 Annual Catalog! Yippee!  I can hardly wait!

DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT...

My favorite card for April was the Easter Curvy Gatefold (04/16/14). But the four I designed below didn't make the cut...

Duds

1. I'm not a great fan of geometric designs, and the paper had just retired from Sale-A-Bration before I posted, so it got tossed.  2. Not much thought or originality went into this card, but someone will enjoy receiving it in the mail.  3.  I accidently stamped Raspberry Ripple ink on this Real Red card, and I didn't take time to fix it (yet).  4. After finishing this card, I realized it was nearly identical to another one I made about two years ago, so it didn't get posted on the World Wide Web.

CARD MINISTRY...

Ladies at my church meet every Thursday morning to send handmade cards to people in our congregation who need cheering up, encouragement, or thanks. In order to keep a large resource of cards on hand, simple designs are essential. Here's an example...

This ministry is a blessing to those who make the cards, to those who send the cards, and to those who receive the cards... The ministry continually blooms with kindness!

FRINGE PURSE CARD...

I used this same pattern several years ago to make a simple purse card, but this time I tweaked the details a little and added the "leather" fringe...
