Not long after I started attending church again I started a handmade card ministry there. It has been a lot of fun. We strictly use these cards for members of our church. I have other ladies that help me put the cards together sometimes and they love it. It is great fellowship. Anyway we make all kinds of cards to send to members. We do birthday, anniversary, thinking of you, get well, sympathy, welcome visitors and anything in between. If there is a need we try to send a card. I was running low on masculine birthday so I whipped out a dozen of them today. I thought I would share the card. Two of the three stamps I used are either already discontinued or is on the newly discontinued list. Both are favorites of mine. The giraffe from African Giraffe is on the new discontinued list and can be ordered at 25% off right now. The crackle background was gone from last catalog but I love it for masculine cards. The saying is from the set Be Still which is still current. I love that stamp set for the ministry cards because I like putting a verse on them. I hope you enjoy the card too. It was so simple but yet great for a guy.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog. I know I'm not the best at keeping it up but I want to keep trying...LOL See ya Soon (I hope).

I have been so busy with church stuff but that is pretty well over now. We had the ladies banquet and it went very well.
Now for posting something to share. I know a lot of people have seen the Toilet Paper Tube Mini Albums but I thought I would post mine here. I am doing it in a class tonight but we are also making a card to match along with a gift bag to put it in. I followed some of the directions from my great friend Char Wilson. You can see her tutorial for the album here. Thanks Char for putting that together.
I did use a couple of sets that are on our discontinued list but it is sets that I love to use. You can order them at 25% off. Here is my website if you would like to order them.
I hope you enjoy my little ensemble that we will be doing tonight. These little books turn out cuter in person than what they look like on here.
