I love note cards...

...don't you? I think they are not only fun to make, but also to give away. It doesn't need to be for a birthday or whatever occasion, just to let someone know you're thinking of them.

These cards were made using the Cosmo Cricket Material Girl collection. The label stamp is from my Lovely Labels set that coordinates perfectly with many Spellbinders Labels dies. The sentiments are by SRM Stickers (Sticker Sentiments - Love, Sticker Sentiments - Thank You, Sticker Sentiments - Thank You). The cardstocks I used are PTI Melon Berry, GKD Lemon Drop, Ocean Mist and Creme de Menthe.

And look at what my friend, Justine, made with Vintage Backgrounds (the lace on the bottom). This is just the inside. Wait till you see the outside. It's hilarious and makes this sentiment even funnier. I don't know if I agree, though...haha. I'm dreading the day my youngest goes to school. I have one more year with her at home :-(.

You have to go check out Justine's post to see the rest of the card. Don't you just love all the vintage touches she put on this card? She does it so well.

Finally, did you know that I have two stamp set designs that were released before I joined the GinaK team? I will be back tomorrow to feature one of them for the There She Goes' Mother of all Blog Hops. There are lots of prizes to be won, so don't forget to hop along with us.

I've been busy creating and designing for many projects that I can't share yet, and we have guests from America coming on Sunday (woohoo! conversations in English). I am also teaching my second card class on the 15th that needs a lot of prep. So, I haven't been able to visit you all and your beautiful blogs. I just wish I don't need to sleep :-). But I am thankful for rest and that my being busy is because I'm doing something I love. God is good!

  10. Oh, these are adorable note cards, Nina! Really lovely gifts! If they were mine it would be hard to part with them! I've always loved pretty stationary. Before I used to make cards I would buy a box and never give away the last one. I still have pile of them, and now they are inspiration, like yours!

  12. Super note cards! Justine created a wonderful, vintage card. The inside said something different to me. My grandmother told me that it would be worse if they didn't grow up so fast, meaning they never grew up because they passed away. So that is how I read it. I like the funny take on it better, it just took me a minute to "get it", lol.
