just for you card
for a special lady friend

This is a Just For You card I specially created for an online friend using a small silver charm, a mini rubber stamp image, and a tiny stick on gem.

As you can see from the picture below, the online friend is none other than Valerie Smith, my co-moderator for the MakingGreetingCards Yahoo group.

Valerie is one lovely lady whom I got to know a few years back and she has been a great help to me especially in moderating the group while I was absent from there.

Here's the yellow background just for you card I'm talking about followed by step-by-step instructions so you can duplicate or modify for your own cardmaking if you like. Since I don't have the card with me, I will have to estimate the measurement in my instructions below.
