    different and looks a bit faster and nice break
    just waiting for the kit to arrive – got more time then money
    God bless you Kathy – take care of yourself and don’t
    over do

    What a brilliant idea…I do think this will catch on very quickly….hope you are doing well and taking care of yourself…sending love and hugs with a lot of prayers your way…tfs

  4. What a wonderful idea!! I can’t wait to start making them.

  5. Kathy this is a lovely idea…I do this especially with my cards for no reason – the smile or hug in an envelope or words of encouragement type cards which really do lend themselves to the SIF idea . I have a rubber stamp with a few lines about why I have not written inside the card itself… I have included pockets and pull outs in my cards ( I took the idea from making some of your fabulous mini album projects – I am a card maker at heart and branched out into other things, largely thanks to you) but see- through pockets never occurred to me and are a brilliant idea.
    I am glad that the outpouring of support you received in difficult times has lead to inspire another creative opportunity for you….and that you are sharing it with us.
    Take care

    Kathy, Such a great card you came up with. I sometimes cut the front part of the card and put it on another piece of cardstock and resend that way but I like the acrylic inside this card to place a note and reuse. You are so smart! I pray for you all the time and only time can heal but things do get better eventually. You have been in 4 dreams of mine, I think of you and Robbie all the time. You’re the bestest girl.
    Love you so much!

    Kathy, awesome idea! I always wonder what happens to the cards I make and send. I know for example that my Nephew’s have every card for each BD on the their dresser’s. That is a great feeling to know that they love the cards and now have from year 1 to 12 & 14. At that age you wouldn’t think they would want them in sight! Anyway, very inspiring project, and to know the cards will be passed on is so wonderful. You have out done yourself once again!

  8. Have done this myself (without the pocket) hate to write in a card almost feel it is a gift that can be reused and sent on.
    Now I will use the pocket and feel good that I gave the recipient something they can enjoy and then send on. Thank you for putting into action things we just think about..

  9. Dear Kathy

    Amazing Idea!!!!!!! I love it.

    Love this idea! I can see that they are going to be quick and easy to make, but look like a million bucks! I get so tired of the store bought cards. This is going to make card making and giving fun again!

  11. Kathy, You never cease to amaze me. This is an absolutely fabulous idea! You have demonstrated to us how a difficult time can be transformed into an opportunity to bring creativity and inspiration into our lives. Again, You are amazing!
