A Bird In The Hand is Worth Two (or Five) Cards in the Kit

Are you a card maker that has a stash of cards that you have made in a pretty box? Ready to yank one out, sign your name with a loving note, slip it in an envelope, and send it on its way?


Are you a card maker who makes a card approximately ten minutes before you leave the house with whatever scraps you find on your desk? Then frantically look for an envelope only to discover that your daughter made a "book" with EVERY SINGLE ENVELOPE in the house?

I am the second type of cardmaker! I make cards for clients so they have pretty cards to give out to teachers, friends and family. But I never can get my act together to make cards for me. I am determined to remedy that!

I started by using the July Smaller Than a Breadbox Kit from Apron Strings. It included Pebbles Let Freedom Ring, Fancy Pants Wave Searcher and Jenni Bowlin Wren.

I used the Jenni Bowlin Wren Collection to create several mass produced cards that I can fill in as I see fit! I created the sentiments on my computer and glued them on the front.

On the Little Birdie Told Me cards I printed out a few inside the card sentiments that say "It's Your Birthday", "You Need A Hug", and "You Deserve a Big Thanks".

On the "Just My Five Cents" Cards I printed out a few inside the card sentiments that say "I Think You are Fabulous" and "I Think You are Needing a Big Thank You".

 When the time comes to give out the cards I will glue on an appropriate inside sentiment and be ready (with eight minutes to spare - now I need envelopes...).


Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day,
