Hello and Welcome to my blog.
I'm a Mom, Daughter, Sister and friend and a Cat Keeper and an avid card maker and paper artist. I love the outside, gardening, visiting my friends and family and enjoy many other activities. My blog is about cards and so much more. I hope you enjoy visiting with me here.
Hello, Yes I know we have moved on to Christmas cards, I saw a banner on someone's blog counting down the days until Christmas - Yikes but I made this card for my niece and her husband. The newlyweds had their first 'in sickness and in health' this past weekend. He was in a serious car accident with injuries so although he was hurt it could have been alot worse and we are hoping for a full recovery. So with Thanksgiving coming and they having so much to be Thankful for I thought of them with this card. I also entered it in several challenges as well.
The first challenge is Basic Gray, Glitz and Bling, and to use a least one Basic Gray product, like that is a challenge, I love them. I used the pearls and the buttons from them and the Glitz is the shimmery die-cut leaves and the bling is the buttons, ribbon and pearls.
The second challenge is over at Elaine's Quixoticpaperie" and her requirement is stitching, I got that!!. I mentioned previously that my sewing machine was acting up so I had to bring her in and I got her back on Saturday and she is working like a charm now.
The third challenge is at Secret Crafter Saturday and their theme this challenge is Four Seasons and I picked Fall, I knew you knew that!! The Fourth challenge is at Color throwdown this week is the colors orange/dark neutral/red/curry. I used an orange sheet of paper as a back drop color, a dark neutral and for me a brown as the card base and leaves, the red as the red button, and curry as one of the leaf colors. My Fifth challenge is at Creativecardcrew and their theme for this weeks challenge is Doodles, yes that is right Doodles, so I picked this stamp because it has 'doodles' around the "Give Thanks' sentiment. My sixth and final challenge is at The Corrosive Challenge. The requirement for the current challenge is EMBOSS IT. I heat embossed the sentiment stamp "Give Thanks" in bronse EP. Okay, I am off to link this card up. Have a great night, Jane
