A New Cardmaking Friend!

Over the past few Thursday evenings I have been teaching my friend's daughter how to make cards.  It has been really fun and she is quite talented.  I showed her iris folding and I think she's hooked.  She made her first card using my fan pattern (sorry, I didn't get a picture).  Her second card was a seashell.  Here it is:


As you can see, she has quite an eye for design.  I'm looking forward to seeing what she makes next Thursday!

The card I made is for a man at church who is in the hospital with cancer.  The design was inspired by the memory of one Sunday afternoon when he was out in the field next to our parking lot with a fishing pole teaching one of our other members how to cast. 


You can't tell from the photo, but the fish and the lure are 3-d.  The images are from PcCrafter's Father's Day collection by Dwight Kirkland.


  1. Both are great cards. Your friend's daughter did a wonderful job on her card. It's always so much fun crafting with a friend. I know I was fortunate to have a friend to craft with for many years...but she has moved out of my neighborhood so we aren't able to get together as much...I miss our crafting time... (and her)
    The second card is a great man's card...hope you don't mind if I Case the idea...

  2. Great Cards! I just love when young people get involved with cardmaking! It is SO MUCH more fun to have someone to craft with...we need another little "girls retreat", don't we? It is super to see you back at it, girl!
