I always try and make my own cards to send to people rather than buying them, and one favoured method is little calligraphed messages or quotes, hopefully inspirational. Here a photos of some I have finished recently. I have a lovely stash of gorgeous papers and also a lot of paper punches to produce the little leaf and flower shapes etc.

This is the top of an 18th birthday card I made recently for my niece. It continues inside with 'birthday' and her name, and I was really pleased that there were 18 letters for 18 hearts! Very fiddly but I do like playing with things like this. :)
