Some special cards

Let's pretend for a moment that it hasn't been over a month since I last posted. We could make believe that I've been popping in here frequently with fun stampin' stuff to show you and more aimless rambling that is absolutely necessary.

Everybody ok with that....?!

In truth, I can't really explain how a whole month has passed in between posts, but I have had a few things going on of late and something simply had to give.

Which is not to say that I haven't been stamping. No, my "to blog" picture folder is veritably overflowing with stamping projects, one in particular dating back to around June. I know this because it was a gift for a prac teacher in my big girl's classroom, and there have been two prac teachers since then......

Today I wanted to show you some sneaky peeks of three special cards that I have made for three special folk in my life.  I will show you the whole cards tomorrow after the post will have arrived at the residences of the folk in question.  I want the cards to be a bit of a surprise as some of them may read this before the cards arrive, that is if they haven't given up on me and my blog entirely by now...!

So here they are...




My mum (aka Nanny) said to me recently that one of the things she likes best about making cards is that you think about the person that you're making it for during the process of creating the card.  I hadn't thought about it in a great deal of detail before, but it's definitely true and was certainly the case as I was making these cards.

Perhaps that's why I'm not a huge fan of mass producing cards for "just in case" as it takes away that certain personal factor about making a card especially for somebody.

Or perhaps I'm never organised enough to mass produce cards, as it certainly makes sense from a practicality point of view, but I prefer my excuse as it makes me look like less of a slacker ;-)

Full details for these cards, as well as pictures tomorrow!

See you then...
