Tulips


Hello everyone. Hope all is well today. Today I have a card for you for Cute Card Thursday. Now this was a challenge that is for sure. Only 4 embellishments and 2 papers. Man I just couldn't figure out what ones to use so went the easy route and just added ribbon and 3 flat pearls lol. I used my Heidi Grace Paper (which I love and use it sparelylol) and I colored my Tilda and tulips in with my copic markers. I am making some cards for the church to mail out to there members for birthdays and they don't want them over the regualr envy price so most of my cards don't have a lot of embellishments right now. Before they changed all the restrictions at the post office it wasn't bad to mail a card but the size I make now (6x6) they want 64cents to mail and if I have any embellishments it is over a $1.00. My daughter needed some birthday cards so mom made them for her well she about flipped when they wanted $1.17 for one card. So had to lay off some of those for her too. But just love embellishing alot lol. Well thanks for stopping bye today and hope you are having a wonderful day. Hugs

  10. Oh, what a cute Tilda! Your card is gorgeous, Donalda!

    In our post office is also very expensive when you want to mail something, especially if you are mailing out to some other country.
    Have a great day
