A Celebration of Cards With Graphic 45: Day 2!

Hello G45ers!

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another incredible day of the Graphic 45 card celebration! This week is all about gorgeous cards that are perfect for all occasions! With the change in the seasons comes a renewed enthusiasm for getting crafty! Let today's marvelous cards captivate your imagination and energize your creativity! We've got three stunning cards today by Gloria Stengel, Nancy Wethington and Sherry Cheever. All of these cards are just perfect for Spring! So get ready for some wonderful inspiration! First up is this beautiful Little Darlings card, altered photo album and coordinating close pin. These projects are so adorable and exquisitely crafted! Here is what Gloria had to say about them.

"I tend to give gift cards for pretty much every occasion, and always like to make small items to accompany the gift cards. I find that altered photo albums are a big hit with new moms (and new grandmothers). I also like to alter jumbo clothespins. They make a great photo holder for a desk or counter." -Gloria Stengel
