Thanksgiving cards to share

Just wanted to share a couple of Thanksgiving cards. I made them kind of last minute, so I'm hoping they make it to my family members in time. (I'm such a terrible procrastinator and didn't get them finished until today, just threes days before Thanksgiving! I do hate that about myself. But alas, it's the thought that counts right?)

I just picked up a fabulous fall/Thanksgiving 6x6 paper pad that I fell in love with at Fond Memories in Walnut Grove, MN. LOVE that designer paper in both 12x12 sheets and a 6x6 pad size! It's called Fall Blessings by Carta Bella. I paired it with some cute Fawn Lawn Stitched Leaves die cuts. Aren't those stitched leaves so cute? Lately they have become a favorite die set for me. I switched things up a bit and made half the cards with a kraft card stock base, and half with cream linen cardstock.

I hope you and your family have a safe, blessed, and wonderful Thanksgiving. 

Supplies used:  Cream Linen card stock / Kraft card stock from Paper Trey Ink / Designer Paper: Fall Blessings by Carta Bella / Lost Lagoon ink and card stock, more mustard card stock, pumpkin pie card stock from Stampin Up! / Gratitude sentiment from "Day of Gratitude" stamp set (retired) from Stampin Up! / brown and red ink drops from Studio Calico (Mr. Huey's Mists) / Vintage Photo Distress Ink and distress ink tool from Tim Holtz/Ranger / Stitched Leaves (dies) from Fawn Lawn.

A happy birthday card for a special golden birthday girl!

Today is my granddaughter's golden 12th birthday, so I made her this pretty, girly, birthday card. Since she likes butterflies, I had to add a couple butterflies using a spellbinder die and a stamping up punch for the smaller one.

A few sympathy cards to share

Last week I made a few sympathy cards for my sister. Thought I'd share them with you. 

This last one I found on Pnterest, and just had to try and re-create.. I just love the large Hero Arts flourishes stamp. You can make any kind of card with it,  so elegant. Thanks for stopping by.
