Feeling Blue? Get Well Cards for You!

So much cold weather! Yes, I am in Florida and there's absolutely no comparison between our winter and the extreme weather that those to the north of us are experiencing. I am grateful I live in the Sunshine State! 

But with all of this crazy winter weather, there are many folks who have been bitten by the flu bug or have horrible allergy issues. I am sure you know at least one person who is suffering. Send a handmade card to your friend who is feeling blue. What a great pick-me-up it would be.

Using Masculine Cardmaking Materials for the Men in Your Life

Let's face it. It is much easier to create handmade birthday cards for females than it is for males.

One of my brothers-in-law's birthday is this month so I had better whip up a manly card for him!

Birthday Cards for Young Boys

Gearing handmade birthday cards to young boys might not be too much of a challenge as long as you use the right colors and embellishments.

These cards were originally made for an online workshop I previously taught with Jeri Parks and Linda Dotterer called "Card Boot Camp: Boys to Men".
