Crafty Things

I was sick all day yesterday and did nothing more than read a book, lay on the couch and finally, drag myself to the table to make some cards. I thought I would show you some of the latest creations.

I needed to make a card for Stephen. He is going on a retreat this weekend and the parents are supposed to write their teen a letter. All I have is flowers, which I knew wouldn't go over well! I did manage to find these little doodads so I added them to the card.

Okay, I love velium letters and words but I cannot for the life of me find something to stick them on with so that they don't look sloppy. Glue is horrible no matter what kind. Someone gave me a little dispenser with tape which is better, but as you can see on the next two cards it still doesn't look good. It is annoying to spend all this time making a card that looks great except for the words.

Okay, last two cards.

I'm hoping to have something different to show you next time, but I never seem to have enough time to sew!
