Card Making and Genealogy

Hi everyone. Goodness, this month is flying by fast. Last Thursday I went to make cards at a friends house and I am just now putting them up on my blog....oh well, "better late then never" as the old saying goes.
 In this picture and the one below, is the neatest card I have ever seen or made. The box of flowers actually folds up and will fit in an A2 envelope. It was really fun to make and very easy too.
 I folded the box up and it fell open this way. Mailing this card would probably cost a little bit more to mail. But what a pleasant surprise to receive a card like this.
 This card is called "spotlight" where you stamp the flower twice, then color the part you want highlighted, layer on cardstock, lining up the flower with the other stamped flower. Nice effect.
 This is a St. Patrick's Day Card. All the three leaf clovers are colored with copic makers and glitter glue and layered on cardstock and printed paper.
This was a very easy card. Each bird stamped on a square then colored in with markers, each corner punched with a round punch and placed on cardstock.....simple, simple simple.

So there you have it, four fun cards to make. I usually keep these cards for about a year or so, and if I have never duplicated them at some point in time or another, they end up going to Hospice Health Care for someone else to enjoy.

Been working diligently on my "Family Tree" entering names, birth and death dates and other info. It's been an interesting study. My husband said it was a waste of time...and all that info comes from Latter Day Saints. I don't think so, theres just too much info gathered to come from one place. I had to remind him that in Matthew chapter 1, we find Jesus' genealogy, I think there is at least 14 generations mentioned. That is quite a long line of family. So really, I don't see anything wrong with wanting to find out where I come from. If Jesus knew, so can I.

Well, time to close, you all have a great day and keep looking up. Cheers ~ Louise

Your cards are gorgeous. Love that layered one.

Your hubby (I hate to say it) is onto something there. There is a Family History Library in Salt Lake City that contains the most extensive collection in the US of family lineage. Many people take their vacation and go spend a week there in the library just tracing their roots. It is one of the outreaches that their church offers. xo Diana

Your box card is cute. I like the way it unfolds to show a bundle of cute flowers.

Great job on your cards. I have seen the first one on different blogs but never tried it. Yours is really pretty with the flowers. All your other ones are great too.
