A friend of mine, Karli, is incredibly artistic, creative, and cute, and she convinced me to join a "card club." For this club, each member has to create handmade cards every month, and then we exchange them. For those of you who know me well, I am SO not a crafter...I have no patience for it and no "eye" for it. So, I really only joined the club because I wanted to hang out with Karli.
The first month of card club, I cheated and had my crafty older sister make mine. (Thanks, Sarah!) The second month of card club, I cheated again and had Karli make mine. (Hey...it was a really busy month, and she offered!)
But this month, I actually buckled down and made my own cards--with the help of Karli, of course. This is a sample of my finished products:
It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and, amazingly, it was quite enjoyable! In fact, last night, as I was driving home from work, I found myself brainstorming ideas for NEXT month's cards and getting excited. WHAT IN THE DEVIL??!! I am turning into a new woman! Before we know it, I am going to be a stay-at-home mom with six kids quilting up a storm in my free time!
