Quickie Note Cards

I needed a quick gift and found a perfect solution! I used my pcCrafter's graphics from the Season to Season clipart collection.

Here's the front:

Here's the inside:

I used digital paper that I altered to match the So Saffron cardstock, made six notecards, added envelopes and wrapped it all up with a sparkly ribbon and bow and viola - instant (almost) present! Although not hand stamped and colored, it is hand made by me and was well received by it's recipient. Being a computer junkie (read nerd) for quite a long time, I am always jazzed to be able to do creative things with technology. That whole left brain/right brain fun stuff.

I'm playing catch-up today from a whirlwind week full of pesky health issues and lots of creative activity. My craft studio is a total wreck and I really need to get things in order before Monday night's stamping pals show up! Here's what the work table looks like today:

DH is up directing the sail club crew putting the docks and slips in the lake for the season, so I am on my own today to get my act together. Once I get things cleaned up it's on to getting a number of projects finished that I will be sharing with you throughout the coming week! Looks like the old hit counter is approaching another milestone as well, so look for some blog candy this week too!

Thanks for visiting.

Super image. Love your right brain comment...I am right there with ya! Sometimes it is a lot easier to control a computer program than a stamp...ha!

Very pretty Chris! Love the inside of the card as much as the outside!
I know what you mean with the work area...why is it that it gets sooo messy????
Have fun cleaning!!!

Lovely card - just stunning.

So, whats wrong with your craft area - it looks pretty normal to me - that is what mine looks like 24/7 - LOL!!!

Beautiful card! I know how you feel about the messy desk---sometimes mine looks about like that too. Hope you're feeling okay, didn't realize you were having knee issues! I have to hide your blog from my DH because as soon as he sees the word "SAIL" he is ON IT! Sailing season does not come soon enough for him!

That is so fantastic. I was going to ask how you got all that amazing shading and such. Fabulous creation.
