  • Giving cards to my best friends and seeing their reactions/gratitude is what keeps me creating new cards.

  • I enjoy the part of giving the card and seeing the reactions of the ones receiving them. The one I remember the most was the one I made for my best friend who had lost her precious mother and my friend said the card meant everything to her.

  • I have a lovely collection of cards that one of my grandmother’s used to send to me on special occasions. It is so nice to look at them again and especially to see her handwritten wishes for me.

  • When I was 21 years old and 7 months pregnant with first child and flying for the first time ever on a 27 hour trip to meet up with my husband and move overseas for 5 years. Wouldn’t be seeing my parents for years. The card was from my dad who instructed me not to open until I was on plane. Dad isn’t open with his emotions and after reading the card, I understood why I couldn’t open until I couldn’t see him. Very sweet card stating how much I was loved and would be missed. 30 years later, I still have the card and think of how loved I felt by my daddy. ?

  • Born in 1921 in a small town in southeastern Ohio, my mother, Margaret Keels, did not have the option to create her own cards. Throughout her life she was a prolific card sender. She always “doctored up” (her words) her Hallmark cards by cutting out pictures from magazines and adding those pictures to the cards, editing the printed messages to personalize them for the recipient, or adding her own little doodles\drawings. She decorated our family’s dining table with her own cheerful creations. She would decorate our front door with large colorful cutouts she would buy from G.C. Murphy’s 5 and Dime store – in a sense like a big card to those walking \ driving by our house. At that time, I did not know the term “paper arts”, I just know she put a smile on many people’s faces. My first venture into paper crafting was when I began making cards in 2013. I made cards to send to Sister McDonald, a lady who I knew from a church I used to attend. She had a major stroke and lives in a care facility. During one visit with her, Sister McDonald told me that my cards “made her day” and she looked forward to my cards. Maymay, my card making skill level has increased because of blog posts and You Tube videos like yours. I thank you. Like my Mother and spurred on by Sister McDonald’s comments, I send cards to express comfort, congratulations, thanks, well wishes and often times spontaneous “just because”. Today’s World Card Making Day question prompted comforting loving memories about my Mother and has prompted me to see how cards making has made a difference in my life. I am grateful to post these comments in celebration of my Mother, Sister McDonald, and all those involved in card making!
