Shop for Handmade Greeting Cards

One of the vendors at my craft show last weekend makes great cards! I stock up on Ellen's cards every year. I've asked her to make special cards and journals for friends, and she is very quick with custom orders. Her etsy shop Cards by Carlos offers cards for birthdays, babies, holidays, best wishes, thinking of you, congratulations, graduation, thank you, weddings, anniversaries, get well, sympathy and more, as well as journals.

Each card is one of a kind. Here are a few samples with links to the listings for sale:

Favorite pictures of the week

"Bah humbug"

My friend at work entered this photo of her dog Buddy in an online costume contest at work. This face cracks me up.

Here are some of my grandkids' Halloween costumes.

Everett was a "cheeseburger."

Jocie was an Autumn Tree.

Scott and family were the Avengers. Meg made her own shield out of a pizza box, paint and duct tape. Paige made her hammer out of floral foam, duct tape and a stick from the yard! My son Scott is unrecognizable with a green face. :)
