More Cardmaking on Saturday


New Cards

I slept in on Saturday morning, then, spent the rest of the morning and part of the afternoon catching up on blogs, etc.  Later, I did a bit of gardening, mopped the kitchen floor, practiced the piano, chatted with friend R, and cooked frozen gyoza (pot stickers) for an easy dinner.

In the evening, daughter suggested making some cards together.  She made several cards; I made two and started on a third one.  The hearts are cut free hand with small scraps of the handmade paper.  It was fun to sit at the dining table and craft with my daughter.

Today, I am grateful for:

- Cardmaking with my daughter
- Chatting with friends
- Oranges from the garden
- Sunny days
- Hot water on tap!  

Today's joyful activity was cardmaking with my daughter.

How was your Saturday?  What are your plans for Sunday?


  1. Oh, I like the cards - a great use of the handmade paper.

    1. Thank you, Eileen. I'm pleased with how these cards turned out. :)

  2. I like the idea of cutting the hearts out of the handmade paper.
    Potstickers are delicious for an easy meal. I haven't bought any for ages. How do you cook them, I've forgotten!

    1. Thank you, Bushlady.

      I saute the potstickers in a little oil and then, add about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of water to the pan and cover the pan with a lid to finish cooking them (takes about 5-7 minutes). There are microwaving instructions printed on the bag (as well as the stove top cooking instructions). :)

  3. Lovely cards. The handmade paper works really well. X

    1. Thank you, Jules. I like how the cards turned out. :)

  4. Well done with the cards! Great design concept - and colour scheme!
