Tell somebody you love them!
Hands up who loves cards?
Me too! I know that those of you affected by a paper addiction, will agree that card making for special occasions is a MUST. Buying from the store? Nah. I have always loved playing with paper and getting crafty making my personalized card designs, way to much to just BUY one. You don't need to be a super talented artist to d-i-y a card, as the secret recipe involves only a little bit of creativity and love. No rocket science, I promise!
