Another birthday card

It's Aunt Ginnie's Birthday! So I had to make her a card. Here's what I did:

I used Spice Cake DSP, Early espresso cardstock, Pool Party cardstock, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Fabulous Florets stamp set, Clearly for you stamp set,  Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set, blender pens, markers, boho blossom punch, pearl accents.

I hope you like it. Aunt Ginnie did! Now I have to make a birthday card for Aunt Patty who is turning 80! Wow!

Have a blessed day!

It's in the mail

Not a check but a card! LOL. How many times do you realize a family members birthday is coming up and you start thinking about the card to make for them. You already have cards made but of course you need to make a special one for them. So you finally make the card but then the birthday was yesterday. No problem. Put it on your mantle and enjoy it yourself. LOL.

I actually did send my sister her birthday card yesterday. I hope she gets it in time for her birthday which is always around Thanksgiving. I just remember we'd always put a few candles in the pumpkin pie and sing happy birthday to her. (Pretty sad huh?) But really who could eat birthday cake after eating a Thanksgiving feast and pie?

Here's the card I made:

Totally cased from Lyssa. (Visit her website here).  I love the colors in this card. Early Espresso, Pool Party, Cajun Craze, Peach Parfait. The saying is from the stamp set Word Play. I still don't know how I got this stamp set since I never ordered it. LOL. But after delivering all my customers orders there was an extra one. Maybe I did order it and forgot.

The splatters are made with the spritzing tool. It's a fun tool to use and you can even tickle your kids ears with it or torment your dog. LOL.

I had to put a little bit of fabric on this card too. I love the Spice Cake Fabric. I even made a cute skirt for my daughter using it. I'll post pictures of it soon.

Well gotta run. Lots to do before Thanksgiving.

God Bless.

Giving Thanks

Today I want to show you the card I made for my neighbor. I'm so thankful for good neighbors and she's one of the best!

I used the Newsprint Designer Series Paper, Peach Parfait Cardstock, Basic Black Cardstock, More Mustard Cardstock, Early Espresso Cardstock, Clear Embossing powder, versamark ink pad, Lucky Limeade Ink Pad, Peach Parfait Ink Pad, Cajun Craze Ink Pad, Sponges, Pear Pizazz Seam Binding Ribbon, Twine, Tiny Tag punch, Tiny Tags stamp set, Gently Falling Stamp set, Leaves #2 die.

What are you thankful for? Who has made a difference in your life? One of the best ways to show someone you care is to make them a card. There are so many ideas out there. I have another card I will show you tomorrow that I made for my sister. Actually it's a wonderful card to send to anyone for any occasion. So come back tomorrow to see what it is.

Only a couple more days til Thanksgiving! Here's my tree I started at the beginning of the month. I had Steve find me some branches and then I die cut the leaves out of fall colored cardstock. I punched a hole in each leaf and then tied some twine on it. There's a bowl of the leaves next to my tree branch and everyone that comes over writes on a leaf and hangs it on the tree. Look how many leaves are on the tree!

After my Girl Scout meeting tonight you won't be able to see the branches! LOL. My girls have really enjoyed writing on the leaves. One of the funniest ones I've read was for Bison. Not sure why. LOL. Today I wrote I was thankful for warm weather. One guest wrote they were thankful for God. Amen to that.

I hope you have many things to be thankful for this year.

No it's not a recipe for some strange cajun dish. It's actually a project I did last month while learning to sew. I found the pattern online at this website: Fabric Turtles

Here's the cutie I made:

Here's our material and the pattern laid out.

I'm off to Biloxi today so I gotta go get dressed but wanted to post a quickie here for you.

Have a blessed day!
