Hello Phone....

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone!
I hope your week has been going well...
I can't believe February is almost over already...
I can just picture seeing the green grass and
the pretty flowers growing in my yard... Alas...
We still have snow on the ground and more to
come yet...but that's ok... I'll keep my image for
that wonderful first day of Spring and hope it
arrives Early! :o) Tomorrow is my Crop and I
think I've got enough cards to make while I'm there...
I actually used some of my scraps that I just couldn't
throw away.... They are strips of paper and I just kind
of used a bunch on some card stock and made a few cuts....
I'll show you them next week... once I get them put together....
For now.... Here is today's simple card! :o)

This is one of the cards I made for my Mother in Law...
She wanted some Hello/Hi/Howdy types of cards
so she could practice her writing skills... I've mentioned in the
past that she's been ill quite a lot in the last few years and
one issue she has is not having full function of her hand...
She's had therapy and is working with it... so she wanted
cards that she could write on the inside of... I've received 3 cards
from her already... not any that I've ever made her of course...
Cause she said she doesn't want to send me cards I made her! LOL
Soooo Sweet.... I think her writing is pretty good and I can read
everything she writes in the cards that she sends me... I've told
her that and she's happy that I can read her writing... sooo
I thought this would be a great, quick, easy card for her to
just stick in an envelope without extra postage...

Cartridge - Wild Card
The cut was designed in my Gypsy to
fit in a regular A2 size envelope

Well.... That's it for me this week....
I've enjoyed doing challenges this week 
and actually getting time to visit some blogs...
I hope you guys have a great weekend and
I'll see ya back here on Monday!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!
Theresa

This is a very cute card...love the paper and colors. Doesn't make you feel good all over to make someone happy like that? Sometimes, what seems like such a small thing to us...is such a big deal for someone else. I think you must be a wonderful daughter in law! Have fun this weekend and hang in there...spring is on it's way!
