Welcome blog readers! I have been busy celebrating my birthday! It was actually yesterday, but I have been celebrating all month, and continued today and will tomorrow too! What did we do for my birthday? We went to the eyeglass store and had our glasses adjusted, then went to Red Lobster for lunch, where we haven't been for ages! Then we brought leftovers home and had Red Lobster supper, too. I forgot any kind of camera or iPad. Sorry, and I don't have a phone to take photos with, either. I had calls from friend, and our kids; in fact I was on the phone a lot yesterday. The rest of the day I worked on a One Sheet Wonder rom 6x6 designer series paper. I made 6 cards and a folder for the cards. I had to get it done for this morning, as three of us friends celebrated two of our birthdays, a Panera.
Here is the gift I made. I just want to say, I remade the one card better after the photo. :)
This is the folder:
The cards were from a pattern from Deb Valder's Blog. I used SU! Country Lane 12x12 DSP. I cut it into 4 6x6 pieces, but just used one 6x6 piece. You could get a total of 24 cards from a 12x12.
I used Fresh Fig and Sage Shadow Cardstock, and 110 lb Recollections for the white base. The dotted paper is the other side of the harvest paper. I used assorted sets for the greetings. I stamped them in Blackberry Bliss, because I didn't have the matching ink for the Fresh Fig cardstock, but I think it matches pretty well. I used SU! Special Reason Stamp set for the flowers and leaves, and the coordinating dies. I also used dies from that set for the Thinking of you, Hello, and Best Wishes labels. The Thanks was fussy cut and layered on the oval. That by the way is the card I tried to redo after the photo, as glitter and I do not get along! On some cards I added, sequins and sticker dots, don't think they show up though. I used Lattice embossing folder on some panels and leaves embossing folders on some.
It is still Tuesday here. So for Elizabeth's TSFT where we all get together to celebrate Tuesdays, here is my entry:
And some cards from my crafty friends! and some not handmade, but just the same, aren't they all wonderful?
The pink one top right is all the way from Dublin!
Here is a close up of one from one of our TSFT gang, Jan. Can you believe how intricately made that is? I don't know how she did it!
And a friend at church knew I made cards, so she had a friend make a card for me! The balloons pop up when you open it. ;) Wasn't that nice of my friend to go to all that trouble?
And this card was colored so beautifully!
The sunflowers came all the way from Australia!!
Aren't these owls adorable!
And today, I received this gift, and bag, and love the saying on it, so will share it and leave it as my parting shot! Thank you for stopping by today!
