Valentine’s Day is coming February 14, 2013 and it’s time to get those heart shaped stamps out and make those cards. I know we just finished Christmas and New Years.
If you haven’t joined my email list, now is a good time…fill out the form in the top right hand corner of my blog.
Lots of ideas to get you making cards, scrapbook pages (you know those pictures you took at Christmas?) and handy techniques and tips.
Now, I have a question for you…
Are you a maker of cards or a sender of cards?
While we enjoy making the cards, do we actually send them out to people. Whether you hand deliver or snail mail them, everyone enjoys receiving a card in the mail. It doesn’t have to be for an occasion, sometimes a “Thinking of You” or a “Hello” card is just the thing to make someones day very happy.
I know I fall into the category of maker vs sender, and one of my new year’s resolutions (or goal) is to get those cards to a well deserving person.
So, I am going to keep a total of the cards I make and the cards I send. How about you? Are you ready to take up this challenge?

Yes, I made a template for the honeycomb on the front of the card. Lots of measuring, but I got it done. Maybe I could have been smarter and used MDS and then printed it on card stock and used that for a template.
So, I did a template to share with you
Just print my gift out on an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of card stock and use to create those cards to send out.
