Cards for a friend . . .

Hello All!
WOW!  Can you believe it?  
This time next week will be Christmas Day!
Hubby is going to do the gift wrapping this afternoon and hopefully we will have all the gifts needed.  BUT if not, I still have time to venture through the crowds and find those last minute goodies.  Fingers crossed we have all we need!  LOL

Last week while talking with a very dear childhood friend over in Pennsylvania, she mentioned she was in need of some masculine Get Well cards.  She loves that I make cards and can personalize her greeting with special card creations when needed.  But at the moment as long as they are mailable and masculine, she'll be happy.  Hopefully she'll be coming to visit between Christmas and New Years so I wanted to get a selection created for her to choose from.

For this first group of cards I searched through my binders of dies and came up with a few Get Well Greetings that would work.


Dies used are:
Sizzix Tim Holtz 'Tree Line' #661604

For this next group, I went through the large collection of greeting cards I have received over the past several months from various organizations we contribute to, and chose some of the images to RECYCLE into my own creations.  We get so many and I share them as much as I can but I still end up with a box full and I hate to discard them or just having them sit around.  So here's my repurposing efforts for today . . .

 

I thought she might need a couple cards for the ladies too so quickly put these two together.

 I hope you are having a fun day and I think it's time I start gathering the gifts together for my sweet husband to wrap.  Oh don't feel badly for him ... he loves wrapping (as long as they are nice square boxes lol) ... the odd shaped gifts that I don't have a box for becomes MY wrapping fun!  LOL

Happy week ahead ...
As always ...

Gosh, all your cards are beautiful! The repurposed ones are so much better in their altered state. I had to take time for two birthday cards and a sympathy card, but I think I'm done stamping for a while. Got to finish the wrapping, buy more stocking stuffers and do a few other things. Thank goodness for gift bags when it comes to those odd shaped gifts, right? Happy holidays!

All adorable and thanks for sharing! I too have a box full of greeting cards from various organizations we contribute to, and this way is good to use them!

Wonderful!!!! I love that you recycle old cards - I used to do that and got out of the habit. Your friend will love these!!! You are so thoughtful to do it!
