Hey, have you got cards that you don't know what to do with??

I have an idea...

It may be a silly idea..(oh..like that's a surprise..) but it's also fun..

My granddaughter, Alyssa, will have a birthday on Wednesday. Her 17th to be exact.

And while looking in my stash for the perfect card, I found these that I had "made" several years ago...with her photos.


Isn't she an adorable kitty?? And a duck....I think....

I then made some Christmas tags using Mr. B and my Mother-in-Law & my brother....

hahahaha!

So, think of how much fun it would be to receive a card with YOUR photo on it?

Oh, you'd love it and you know it...
I, personally, think it would be a hoot!

OK, remember the screen I stol...ah...found?? Well, I finally have a spot for it and Mr. B said although he loved the clean look of the walls, he missed seeing family around him. So we came up with a great use for the screen and we have family in our front room all the time.


I know, I know! Genious..pure genious...

So, look in your stash of old cards & old photos & see if you can make someone smile!

And, Happy Birthday, my sweet Alyssa.......

What a cool idea for cards and love the screen. Just saw some outdoor magnetics at Kirklands on sale that would be so cute to hold he photos on the screen if it had metal mesh on the screen...what do you do with an outdoor magnetic out side on a brick house?????

It's fantastic! You are inspiring! I see you said you "stol...found it"
You really must get your terminology right girl. You RESCUED it! I am always rescuing things from dumpsters, ditches and delelict cottages. That is why my nickname is "Fingers Flynn" And I bet you thought it was because I am a fellow whizz at crafting??
HeeHee! :-)...Love and hugs...Pam
