Patriotic Cards

Someone asked for help with cards for her parent’s nursing home. She was specific in wanting July 4th cards. My Buddy Judy sent me her left-overs from last year, so I put them to good use and created 6 or 8 cards with her supplies, then created a few more. Here is a selection from the cards were mailed.

I think the box held 15 or so cards. I counted but didn’t really pay much attention. I promised her 10 cards, but she got a few extra. Once I had an idea, I duplicated it several times. These will be given to the residents at the home and there are around 70 residents. Hopefully several people are providing enough cards.

  1. Lisa, these turned out great. So sweet of Judy to help you out with some stamps. I do love the US in flag shape image. The star embossing folder is a great background for your patriotic cards. So nice of you to help out the nursing home residents.

  2. What a nice thing for you to do for others. And what great results you achieved doing it. Love them.

    1. Thank you! Your leftovers got me motivated to get creating and finish the job. I have been ordering boxes and envelopes from USPS to decide which would be best to use. I used a small box they had and got it mailed yesterday. Good thing as it is SNOWING right now. I am in shock as snow this late in April is not normal for our state or in my lifetime.

    1. Thank you! I did create a few without the images sent to me, but really enjoyed getting her stash in the mail. It ignited my creativity to get the job done.
