Why I make cards...

"If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person." ~Fred Rogers

I love Fresh Ideas from a Fresh Perspective, put out by Lyn Conway, a direct sales coach I met at a Close To My Heart convention a few years ago.  She publishes uplifting and encouraging quotes every day.  This one seems particularly relevant to my business of connecting people...friends, loved ones and generations (in the case of a scrapbook).

On our recent Alaska Scrapbooking Cruise, we made 6 cards with one piece of Claire card stock, and 6 card bases.  Easy, and a great way to use up your patterned paper...and to help you connect with other people.

I tried and tried to rotate these other card pictures, but with no luck!  :(

They're still cute, though, even though they're sideways.  :)
I used Outdoor Denim and Sunset inks.
