Gem's Cottage Blog » Blog Archive » Week 2: Cards for a Cause, a “Quote” Card and Mini-guessing Game Winners

It’s week 2 of Cards for a Cause: the Inmates Project…and the pile of cards keeps on growing! First package that I opened for this week is from Elayne (elayne on the PCCrafter message board) – 12 gorgeous, marvelous cards! And the second package came from Linners (Linda Ohio now in GA also on the PCCrafter message board), and she donated a whopping 54 cards!  Thank you so much, Elayne and Linda! I know, I know, I’ve been behind in posting these beautiful creations on the gallery – and I promise to have them up within this week, otherwise, you can take all my paper punches (that’s equivalent to taking away chocolate from a chocoholic, okay!).  Also,  my DD’s made another 50 cards this week, bringing the total to… (*** drum roll   ***)… 178 cards! Yay!

The feature card this week is a “quote” card – break out google, bing, yahoo and all other search engines you can think of (well, you might say one is enough, LOL!), and find quotations that inspire and uplift.  Make it the focal point of the card then add appropriate digital graphics or stamped images. Here is a sample:


This is a simple card with no layering, just some glossy accents on the flowers. The images all came from Window Reflections.  I used a quote from  Rabindranath Tagore: “Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.” Another quotation that I considered to use is from Maya Angelou (love her work!): “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”  Of course, one of the best sources of inspiration is the Bible, use bible verses like this one from Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  I am sure that whoever receives a “quote” card will feel blessed!

By the way, if you read the most recent  Gem’s Cottage newsletter, we ran a mini-guessing game there – and here are the winners:





All of them guessed that Jenine, my 14 yo daughter, created the elements and designed the Christmas Treet box with the silhouette of Santa and his reindeers. Congratulations!!! Thank you to all who participated, and Jenine thanks everyone who complimented her work…(*sniff, sniff*) yes, my baby is growing up and creating graphics and designing…and I am proud! To all the winners, check your inbox tomorrow for a treat from Jenine!

I love the Window Reflections set (btw, when is the fall/winter version coming?) and the layout with quote on this is absolutely perfect. Great job.
