I enjoyed making these cards last night. Card making is one of the monthly activities with our neighborhood association at the clubhouse.  The lady bug brad in this one is sooo cute!  I think it's bound to make someone who's under the weather feel better.

And, of course, who doesn't love St. Patrick's Day?

The best part of course, was the chatter and laughter, and getting to know the neighbors.  Following card making four of us stayed on to play Hand and Foot, a new-to-me card game.  It's quite popular here, and not too complicated.  However, it was nice of the gals who offered to play a game with me, open-handed when needed, for learning the game for the first time.

Very cute, Pat! And what a nice project for neighbors to work on together. We don't have a clubhouse in our neighborhood, but I have long thought a crafternoon would nice now and then!

Gorgeous cards, especially the ladybird - this is something I haven't done but I can see how much fun it would be... and a bit more instant than quilting!!

Darling cards. Sounds like a a great way to spend an afternoon... crafing, new friends, & cards. Golly, it hardly gets better.

Your creativity is shining through with card making now! Both cards are very cute. My cousin does this and it is very addictive. Some days it may be hard for you to choose between card making and quilting :)
