Flap Overlap Card
For this card I used the "Flap Overlap" design from Jeanette Lynton's cardmaking book, Originals, page 21.
When I look for creative ideas, I turn to Jeanette's cardmaking and scrapbooking books. You can find them here. They make paper crafting so fun & easy! These books make wonderful gifts for any scrapbooking/cardmaking friends.
This card will be for a special couple's silver anniversary -- I may use Versamark ink and silver glitter to make the flourishes pop.

We've had a flurry of a new four-year-old's activities including a dance recital AND a swim party birthday celebration this weekend. A child's JOY in simple things such as a Polly Pocket or a pool "noodle" is so refreshing! After church today, I'm heading back to the pool for more fun. Today is our Strawberry Shortcake's actual birth day -- that just means more cake & ice cream!
Here's a peek at the cake complete with its "crumb coat", recycled candles, & four little mini friends:
Have a super Sunday -- happy Pentecost! God's force--the Holy Spirit--is with us as our Friend, Comforter, and Motivator!
