I Love Cards

I love cards.

I love to send cards. I love to receive cards. Most people would agree with me on this level.

Yet, I think I'm falling into the extreme category. My dear sister bought me cards for Christmas - two sets of 12. I bought 35 more cards for myself this month, but most of these don't count since they are for for Christmas 2008. I made an additional 10 cards by hand. (One doesn't count; it's for Christmas!)

Yesterday, I went searching for the perfect card to send my friend as a "Welcome Back from India" and decided that I didn't have any cards. None. Well, none that I'm willing to give her. Some cards aren't for giving. They are for keeping and framing.

So, I sat down and made another 9 cards.

Some of these don't count. Two are for Christmas and three are for Valentine's Day.

This is my favorite. The pic is from a 1956 encyclopedia. It shows a line of ladies working at Grand Central Station. Isn't that neat?

I don't have a problem. Do I?

Love the vintage picture. I received a box of cards from my Mom for Christmas. I never send cards hardly ever now - but I decided to drop my cousin a note as I only had her street address. I was fun to send the card and I hope she enjoys receiving it!

I think not, unless you call creativity a problem!

No, it's not a problem! It's awesome to have so many cards at your home to choose from when you need one- it's like having your own private Hallmark store! ;)

Your cards are so lovely, but - your desk - ah, isn't it a little too tidy? Tell me you cleaned up for the photo..... ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
