Christmas Messages

Sometimes you want to send a card during the holidays to let someone know your thinking of them during the time of year.  A Christmas card just doesn't say what you want to say.  This card is perfect to let someone know your thinking of them in a special way.  I sent this card to my dear friend Margaret who recently had surgery.

An Apple a Day

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.  This is the get well card we made at my October Stamp Camp.  The inside sentiment “Feel Better” is also from the Sassy Salutations stamp set.  Cute card for a friend who needs some cheer.
