Hello! Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. I design and create handcrafted greeting cards. I like to call this passion of mine "visual poetry" ....imagery on paper. Please feel free to browse the photos of my cards and leave a comment.

It's Your Birthday, Sport!

Hello, everyone! It's been a while since I posted any of my cards. I was busy with appointments and household stuff that needed to be taken care of. I don't know where the time went. Tomorrow will be February 1 already and you'd never know it by looking outside. We have spring-like weather here in my neighborhood. It is currently 57 degrees. It should be in the teens or low twenties. I could learn to love this kind of winter weather,. But I'm sure we'll be paying for it sooner or later.

This is my first card of the year. I made it for one of my nephews who had a birthday this month. Please forgive the quality of the photo of the card. It was taken at night and the lighting was poor. I was planning to take another photo in daylight but I mailed the card out before remembering to snap a picture of it again. 

Basically there were only 2 types of products used in creating the card front:  card stock and dies. The sentiment was personally composed and computer generated.

Card stock:  GKD black onyx, ivory and Stampin Up Crumbcake
Dies:  IO Die 224-O

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be posting more on a regular basis now that I'll have some time. Please come back or sign up to follow my blog.

Make it a great day!
