You're Such a Card!

Lucky for me, the constraints of square footage keep my number of hobbies to a minimum; unluckily, both my hobbies are squashed into a corner of the dining room resulting in a look I like to call 'freshly-tossed tornado'...

This week, I've worked on card-making and it's all my Mother's fault.  She got me into quilting, too.  Hey, Mom, how come you can't introduce me to a cheap hobby?!  Anyway, this is what I've accomplished since last Sunday...

I left all but the sewing one blank on the inside so I can use them for just about anything.

And just to prove that they really aren't Hallmark cards, I had this stamp made to put on the back of each one.

 They're alot of fun if I don't overthink them too much.  Even Co-Defendant #2 has tried her hand at a couple.

So, what are you working on this week?  I'm heading over to Confessions of a Fabric Addict...won't you join me? 

Have a great weekend, y'all!


  1. Wow, those cards are beautiful! I made a rule that I will not allow myself to try any crafts involving paper or yarn... fabric only... but if I ever break that rule, cards will be the first thing I try.

  2. Impressive accomplishments! They are just beautiful!

  3. You've really got a talent for making such lovely cards!

  4. Your fabric looks a lot more organized than mine does right now. I love the cards. Very pretty. That is one hobby I almost started doing-scrapbooking, but stopped myself. I may take it up after all someday because I still have boxes of pictures I have not done anything with. It's overwhelming!

  5. I've never gotten into card making, it looks like a lot of fun!

  6. This is another wonderful hobby. But I won't start it. Quilting is my life and I don't have room for anything else.

  7. Cool! The closest I get to making a card is taking a photo, copying it onto a sheet of paper, folding and writing on the inside...I really should embellish them a little...

  8. Sweet cards--is there a hobby that is not money,money,money?! lol!

    1. Maybe bird watching(?) which my Dad does from his back patio. Otherwise, I'd say no...even my hubby's hot rod hobby is expensive!

  9. Beautiful cards!! I love the idea of home made cards, but just can't take on another hobby - so I swap crafts with a friend of mine, who makes cards but doesn't want to learn to quilt! Whoop whoop!!
