It's been since August since I lasted posted on my blog. A lot has been happening....gardening, sick hubby, and now getting ready for Christmas.
This card I made for Joan's Gardens challenge using Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3341 Church in the Wildwood precut set. I like the simple cards...not too much glitz. I gold embossed the sentiment on white cardstock, cut it out with decorative scissors. Used Hunter Green CS for my card base and to back the sentiment. Embossed gold cs with Cuttle bug's Holly ribbon folder. Added leaves punched with Martha Stewart punch and added green button. Now have got to get back to finishing my Christmas Cards! Am sooo far behind!

Happy Birthday

I made this card for a challenge Linda Payne is hosting on STV with my sister-in-law in mind. Her birthday is Sunday and she is a beautiful lady in her 80's. She comes to my home on Tuesdays and blesses our group with "fluffy stuff"...a pudding & cool whip dessert of one of her many recipes! She's a beautiful and very active lady!

This is my first "quilt" on paper with my $10.00 auction sewing machine! I gave my daughter my $1,000 machine last Christmas so she could use sits comfortably in her closet!! I can use it when I go down! I entered it in Linda's blast from the past challenge. Sure would like to have a new stamp set!! I used to quilt so I'm thinking of some of those designs that would look cute on a card. The first one that comes to mind is Cathaderal Window which is my favorite design....maybe in the future I'll try it on a card.
I've posted on fb about Pete, my husband and his new issue with his heart. He's now on Coumadin (generic form). We spent an hour with the VA pharmacist in Charlottesville, VA is am. She gave us so much info that our heads were swimming when we came out. They're trying everything they can to prevent him from having a stroke. From symptons he's had, he's already had a very close call.
Pray for us and have a wonderful rest of the day.

F Finally! I'm back to blogging again! I have had a busy summer which included the trip to the stamping show in NC last week! We had such a wonderful time!
I made this card using some of the dp I got while down there. I was out of everything I liked so I enjoyed shopping for dp! This card is for my brother in law's birthday today! Then I entered it in Linda Payn'es blast from the past challenge. The tree silhouettes is the first set I bought from GKD.
Today is another busy day...canning tomatoes, already did battle with ants that wanted my humming bird food....ain't happening now! Then fix an early dinner so can go to VBS tonight.
Have a wonderful day!

Color Challenge for GKD's Release party. Love the colors Lemon drop and tempting turquoise together. I "pieced" the quilt blocks onto lemon drop cs The images are from Nina Brackett's Nana's Needlework. The dp is from SU and also the tempting turquoise cs. The hinges on teh basket are brads from GKD Spring Mix Stamp TV Kit. I colored them with copics to match the basket. Stamped and cut out the shelf and fastened it to dp w/scor pal tape. Stamped basket on dp then stamped it on white and colored w/copics, cut it out and adhered to dp. I haven't put a sentiment on the inside yet..probably use as a note card. Haven't posted anything for a while...3 funerals !
