Happy Thanksgiving

Hello and welcome.

Today’s card is my first Thanksgiving card for this year. This is a CASE of one I saw on Pinterest here https://www.pinterest.com/pin/342555115419557712/. The pp was found online. Leaf is a new (no name) die set I bought on Amazon, wheat is from the Silhouette, sentiment was printed on the computer. I was kind of stumped as to how to adhere the very narrow wheat stems, so I dropped some liquid glue on a piece of paper and lightly dipped the lower stems and put them together. Gold cord is from my stash and the leaf is popped up.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate your visits. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.

Hello and welcome. Hope you’re having a good day.

When I found this quote “What did the teacher ghost say to her class? … “Watch the board and I’ll go through it again.” I immediately thought of my daughter who teaches fifth grade. Since my Silhouette wasn’t working when I made this card, I used a clip art ghost and fussy cut it. I think my daughter will get a kick out it. I’m entering this in Make the Cards Challenge

Please Hold

Hello and welcome. Wow, this is the first day we have not had the AC on, what a wonderful feeling.

Today’s card is dear-old-sister’s chuckle of the month. Sentiment “…Please continue to hold. Your call is important to us.” Inside “But your time is not.” This is from a Frank & Ernest cartoon strip. Image was found online, circle frame is Stitched Circles by Die-namics. EF used is from Michael’s. D-o-s could relate to one of those calls.

Hello and welcome. Hope you have had good weekend.

Today’s card is for our 1 1/2 year old great-granddaughter. Now all our great-grandkids are taken care of for Halloween. This is a CASE of one I saw on Pinterest you can see here https://www.pinterest.com/pin/342555115412370170/. Pumpkin head is from an online coloring page colored with Copic’s. Since I didn’t have any orange or yellow ribbon, I Googled Halloween bow clip art and thought this bow would work quite well so I printed and fussy cut it. What did I ever do before Google??? I ran the yellow and orange panels through the Fancy Fan ef from SU. I used a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake stamp pad to edge around all the panels.

don’t worry

Hello and welcome. Hope you’ve had a good week.

Today’s card is for my sister-in-law. The sentiment “Don’t worry about getting old… Worry about thinking old.” was found somewhere online. Before printing the image, another online find, I used a cotton ball and Bashful Blue stamp pad to create a light sky, then I used Smokey Slate to create kind of a lane. Hubby & I both can see his sister riding a scooter. This was indeed a very quick and easy card.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

https://twooldbatshalloweenchallenge.blogspot.com/2022/10/october-anything-halloween.html

While going through my Halloween stash the embossed spider web panel fell on my desk then the two die cut spider webs fell on top of that and I said to myself ‘self, this could make a cool card.’ To my surprise this Halloween washi tape also fell out. Trying to think of what to add I Googled Halloween clip art and found these little monster cuties. Monsters are fussy cut. I think this one will go to our 5 year old great-grandson. I’m entering this is Two Old Bats and Make the Card Challenge.

Hello and welcome. Already Oct., where does the time go??

Today’s card is for our 3-year-old great-granddaughter. I think she’ll like watching the pumpkin spin. Again, I found the pp online, pumpkin is from an online coloring page. When printing the two images I reversed one so they would match up back-to-back. Pumpkins are colored with Copic’s and fussy cut. I used Gold Stickles on the hatband buckle. Circle frame is Stitched Circles from Die-namics. I am entering this in Two Old Bats October challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate you taking the time. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.

paw print birthday

Hello and welcome. Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s been 10 days since my last post. Guess life just got in the way.

Today’s card is for one of our favorite servers who loves her dog. When our daughter was here, I helped her make 2 graduation cards with this fold and I thought it would be fun to do again. You can find Dawn Griffiths video here https://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/2013/03/box-card-video-.html.

The pp and dog image were found online. Circles are Die-namics Stitched Circles.

Pug AND A mug

Hello and welcome.

Today’s card is for my niece who loves her pug and likes having some beer. During the night this sentiment popped into my head then I knew what kind of card to make. It is all computer generated which makes this a very short post and feels like I cheated. Whatever would I do without Google??

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.
