A Birthday Card for my Sister

Good Morning,

I do this all the time!  I make birthday cards for my brothers and sisters and then I forget to mail them on time!  Ugh, so frustrating!  Of course I do have 13 brothers and sisters, can I use that as an excuse?

So here is the birthday card I made her:

I do believe that this is the most CAS card that I have ever made.

Here is a close-up of the stamp, it is from Penny Black.

Here is the inside of the card.  I used two seperate stamps and made it with my Mini Misti.

Autumn Paper Sculpture

Good Morning Friends,

Today I would like to show you a project that I worked on all weekend.  It is a paper sculpture.  It was very work intensive but so much fun!  

I am showing it to you in the only 12 x 12  shadow box that I had.  I didn't have time to make a shadow box, but I will put it in one that is more "autumny".  

Here is a close up of the sunflowers.  I chalked all of the flowers with my Powderpuff chalks from Quick Quotes.

I ran most of the leaves through my embosser using a variety of folders and I also chalked them with Powderpuff chalks.

The SVG's for this project is from Dreaming Tree.  I highly recommend this company.  Not only do they give you the written steps to each project, they also have a tutorial.  The guy that does the tutorial (I think his name is Ron) does an excellent job of guiding you through each project and he also gives little tips along the way.  They also have a lot of free projects, check it out.  I am not affiliated with this company, I just like their stuff. 

Are you excited for Thanksgiving?  I am so thankful that we don't have to cook the meal this year.  We are going to our friends house and all we have to make are some pies.

Thanks Bottle Tag/Card

Good Morning!

I hope you are having a good week!  We have been invited to share Thanksgiving with our wonderful neighbors.  I was taught never to go to a party/dinner at someone's house without bringing a hostess gift.  We are bringing wine (and some pies too).

Here is my tag/card I got it from the Silhouette Store.

Isn't it cute?  Surprise!  It opens as a card!

Here is a close-up.

I hope that my neighbors will enjoy the wine that we choose and this tag/card.

Funny Cornucopia

Good Morning,

Have you ever had a day where nothing you did went right?  That is how my day was yesterday.  My embossing machine didn't want to emboss, I looked at a pop box card that I made last week and decided it was crap...sigh...

Here is a digital stamp from The Paper Shelter that I purchased in 2013 and just now got around to coloring!  The stamp is called Funny Cornucopia.  We are going to our neighbors house for Thanksgiving, I think I will give this to my 10 yr. old neighbor Megan.

I was searching through my embellishments for something to put on this card and I found this cute knife and fork from Tim Holtz, I think they go very well!

Here is the inside of the card:
