cards

Postby princess » Fri Feb 11, 2011 7:16 pm

I have been making cards for the last 3 years. I do not sell i only gift.
Last year my daughter and i gave a boot box to each of the following:

Roxburghe hospice
Army in Afganistan Naffi
Cats protection
Aberdeen cat and dog home
Barnardoes
and now i have been asked by the hospice to help CHAS (children's hospice of Scotland).

I used to knit, crochet and bake, now i cant but i can sit and make cards its very easy.

Hi guys,

I too make cards, however I must confess that I sell mine :oops: . I find that it gives me a sense of achievement although my shaking hands do make accuracy very ddifficult...
