I sat through the party thinking "I am terrible at this…" I love art. I love crafts. I love diy. So, I should be able to make cards, right?? This card-making party should be right up my ally! But as I stamped and clamped, struggled with glue dots, and could not decide what coloured paper to use, I knew card making was not my thing.
I came home to my husband after the card making party that night and said "I hate card making." His response was something along the lines of "Good, we'll save lots of money." True story.
I may dislike making card, but I enjoy giving cards. There is just something about finding the perfect card for someone. It communicates "you are special to me" in a unique sort of way.
Luckily, I have a dear friend who is amazing (and I mean amazing) at card making. Listen. This girl is so. stinkin. creative. I do not know how she does it. She custom made the two cards pictured above-and another one not pictured- just for me! For the one on the left, I said something along the lines of "purple and gardening" and voila! That's what she came up with! For my biker babe hubby- I said "red and motorcycle" and wow- that's what she gave me.
