I made this card for Pam.The flower holds down the card front. The thanks is a set of alphabet dies that I rarely use. Colors are eggplant, plum and marina mist. The flower is a die that came with the alphabet set.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all have a wonderful day and that you feel as blessed as I am feeling. Here is a birthday card I made for an Aux. member. The die is Memory box. I really like it!

I really like this thank you card. I stamped the fern stamp with crumb cake & then with Memento Rich Cocoa which is so close to Soft Suede. Love it when that happens. I still have one more thank you note to write. I hope to get that done today.

I'm sure you all have seen all the "piano" cards on the net. Well here is my version. I made this for a friend who made pies for the bake sale for the bazaar. She loves to sing and has a beautiful voice. I thought this card turned out cute.

Here is another thank you card I made for Gary who helped in the kitchen bazaar day. I finally got my swap card done and mailed.

We did this card @ shoe box. Very simple but elegant I thought. I ask Peg if I could post it here and she said she CASED it. I like it and used it as one of my swap cards. I just noticed that this did not post yesterday. I'm trying again!

Here's a masculine thank you card I made. Two grays & black. I love this old car. I lightly colored it wi
th gray.

Another thank you card. This did not photograph well. I embossed the pear with gold powder and the gold paper is a scrap. It looks better in real time. I did not accomplish much yesterday in my card making. I did get a couple of craft projects started. I have errands to do this morning and then shoe box this afternoon.

This thank you note was for an employee that did a lot of extras for us during the bazaar. The blue metallic paper is really a pretty color in real time. It's part pf the pack I got @ Tuesday Morning.
I only have one more thank you note to make but lots of birthdays for early Dec. and still need to do a swap card. Soooo guess what I will be doing today.

This is one of many thank you cards I have been working on. The die is a Spellbinders Labels 22. The metallic paper is a 12x12 pack that I got for $6 @ Tuesday Morning. I have not been in there in awhile. Sometimes you can get some pretty good stuff. It's hit and miss but always fun when you find something special. The sentiment is Hero Arts.
I like this font a lot.

I have been making thank you cards the last few days. I mentioned when I made the yellow and black card that I thought black and hot pink would be a nice color combo too. Here is the results.

I made this card for a Va Birthday. Navy and Tangerine Tango. I colored the "Candi" with a marker.

This is my other shoe box card. I like the yellow & black color combo. I made a thank you card yesterday using black and hot pink. I think I like that better.

Here's the pear stamp I like so much. I embossed it with gold embossing powder. I think it would make a very nice Anniversary card. The ribbon reminds me of some I had when I first started stamping it was DeNami. I bought this in Williamsburg Va. at a pottery place. They had three buildings with lots of Christmas stuff and general junk. It was only $3 so I snatched it up. I also bought it in white with silver. I made three thank you cards yesterday. Several more to go. It's laundry and jazzin up a pot for my shamrock plant on my to do list today.

I made this card for an Aux. birthday. I saw something similar and decided to give it a try. I stamped the background on patterned paper then stamped the Poppies and then stamped the Poppies again on blue figured paper cut them out and popped them up. I absolutely must get some stamping done today. I hope the sun comes out today. I'm tired of this gloomy weather.

I made this thank you card and it did not turnout like I thought it would. I bleached the parts that I thought looked like highlights. Apples remind me of fall so that is wh
y I got out this stamp. Next is my favorite pear stamp, another fall thing for me. I don't take good pictures of my dark cards. This one is much nicer than in the picture. I used clear embossing for the apple and it looks like black. I like the card in real time.

Today's birthday card was made for an Aux. member. I found a whole 12x12 sheet of this paper. The back side is plaid and good for a masculine card. I bought these brown pearls @ Mike's. I have never seen pearls in this color. There are 2 sizes and also a liter beige.

I made this card for an Aux. member who turned ninety on Nov. 4. You would never know she is that old. Still very active and pleasant to be around. I wrote her a not that said have some "hatitude" on your birthday. Wish I had a stamp like that. I thought I saw one once but a google search came up with nothing.

Here's another thank you card I made for a big contributor from our ask letter for the quilt raffle. I popped up the oval. It looks
better in real time.

This was my swap card. Black & white. The bazaar is over and I am ready for a break. We made more money this year than we have in several years over $9k. I was so delirious! We sold all the washer necklaces & of course tons of other stuff. We have to go pack up the leftovers this morning if any of us can move!

Friday, November 1, 2013

I am posting a pretty simple birthday card today. I had the card layered but never completed. I should make some up for times when I am in a pinch to get a card out. The room is ready for the the bazaar and it looks spectacular! I am ready also except for putting some cards in sleeves & finishing up the cheese balls, fondue and setting that up for tonight and going down and tidying up the Country Kitchen.
