I was hired to create these cards for twins. I was given several photos of the two and picked things that I wanted to include in the card. I was told that one was more of a tomboy than the other. So, I created her with pants on the right. Her pose and outfit was based on her picture. The color was that twin's favorite. The card on the left was a mixture of two pictures that I saw. Her original dress was a bit longer and was white & purple. Her hair was in a ponytail. My customer wanted lime green (her friend's favorite color) to be incorporated in the card. So, that's what I did. I also added the jewelery, which is metallic, into the cards. They measure 8 1/2 in by 10 1/2 in ( a little smaller than a standard sheet of paper) and were included with gift bags.
If you are a part of sorority or fraternity, you may be familiar with the challenging process of pledging.
When it is all said and done, you feel like you have accomplished something great. The 4 cards above
were created for 4 new members of the Zeta Phi Beta sorority. Their actual names are hidden for privacy.
I designed each girl based on the member. Their sorority names and numbers are listed at the bottom of
the signs that they are holding. I had a lot of fun creating these.

So, I've brought back the Ruthie's Greetings Bible Verse bookmarks :-) They are laminated to protect them from smudges. The following handmade bookmarks are now available on the Ruthie's Greetings website for purchase:
It's funny to see the hustle and bustle of everyday life, here in the U.S. We have become a society that is always on the go. We check our cellphones, our clocks, and our pace. But,Thanksgiving is a time where we stop and check our blessings :-) I like to thank God for mine everyday.
I am thankful for each and everyday that I was allowed the chance to wake up. I am thankful for growth. I'm thankful for those Thanksgiving Eves that my grandmother "Ruth" stayed up making pies and cakes for the feast the next day. I am thankful for God providing me with creative outlets (Ruthie's Greetings & writing) to express myself. I am thankful for the smiles that I receive. I am thankful for my "failures" because they were blessings in disguises :-) I am thankful for God's love and blessings over my life. I'm thankful for his protection. I'm thankful for my friends, family, and associates. Most of all, I'm thankful for the life that He has give…
