Handmade Greeting Cards
Do you remember what the nicest thing once was about going to the mailbox? A greeting card!
In our younger days those birthday cards sometimes held a little bit of cash from Grandmom and Grandpop or an aunt from out of town. I still have many of those store bought cards that have been sent through the years. The money enclosed many years ago has long been spent...on junk I probably didn't need. Cards were always something all of us looked forward to.
But those are the days that seem to be almost gone having been left behind because of modern technology and email making it more "convenient". An emailed card never put a smile on my face like getting a card in the mail did.
If you send cards quite often or if you are bored with the cards sold in the stores today take a look at this website www.handmadecardsbykaren.com
The cards you see on the website are ALL handmade by Karen Rees Freiberg. Name sound familiar? That's because it is. Karen, known as Karen Rees grew up in Pocomoke and graduated with many of us in the class of '71 from the Pocomoke High School.
Karen makes each and every card by hand. There's a card for every occasion and most times 2 or 3 designs for any occasion you can think of. And if you have an occasion she hasn't thought of and you need a special card send her an email with your idea. She will be more than glad to hand craft a card that will put a smile that special someones face.
All the information you may need is on the website. Karen is also available for fundraisers. Handmade Cards by Karen
