Consider Yourself Carded!

My Dad used to call me "Busy Fingers" as a nickname when I was a girl. My hands were busy crafting this and that, and I made a LOT of homemade cards for my family members especially. This year, I returned to the card-making aspect, and have had such fun! I made cards for my "Greats," the youngest set of nieces and nephews, my own kids, neighbor kids, friends and family near and far. If I perhaps missed sending one to you, consider one of these YOUR cards! Batch #1 (above) used googly eyes stickers.)
Batch #2 (above) used fabrics, and sewing machine for the more mature recipient -sorry it is blurry!

Batch #3 used vintage puffy stickers.

I also made a couple of books for the littlest of loved ones using those funky stickers that make movements with the handling up and down motions and called the books 'Shake, Rattle and Roll!' Skeletons danced their jigs, bats moved their wings, and sayings popped up with the twist of the page.

Most of the materials I used were from Target...I love their scrapbook and $1.00 section! Yes, some were from Dollar Tree and JoAnn Fabrics, too.

Happy Halloween, Everybody!

If you would like to be added to my card list next year, let me know on this blog and I'll see what I can do.

What a TREAT, indeed, to be on your list of recipients. Cal and Nora's Georgia Deb cards are proudly displayed on our dining room table. From there, they'll find their way to their memory boxes. These cards are way too cute not to keep.

PS -- When I told Calvin that the card was from you he said, "From MY Deb?" ;)
