Miss You

My son is in the Army Reserves.  Before he left, he told me not to send him cards because he knows that I tend to make cards that have embellishments and he said he would not have room in his trunk to store such items.  He also said he didn't want to be embarrassed by my homemade items.  So I did just that....I have only mailed him letters on standard notebook paper.  I received a letter from him yesterday asking for me to please send him a card since he misses "items of the civilian life".  So I had to quickly whip up a card for my boy.  I didn't want to make anything frilly.  So this is what I came up with.  I used an adorable image from Mo Manning and a wonderful sentiment from TLC

Peace on earth ornament card

I wanted to use this wonderful ornament set which is from Imagine That which is a black and white set that I printed on a sparkly looking digital piece of cardstock.  That is why this set is so wonderful because you can make it any color you want.  I added some bling on the bow and ornament to give a little sparkle.  The beautiful sentiment is from TLC, Create.

Happy Autumn to you

I can't believe how fast November is going.  Maybe it's just that I have too many things to do this year and feel overwhelmed.  Since both of my kids are gone there isn't anyone around to help....I actually hired someone to do my yardwork because I have so many trees and leaves.  I had quite a few of them cut down last week because they were over hanging the house and I was worried a storm would break a branch on the roof, and I couldn't climb up there to get it off.  Also, I have problems with the rain gutters being full of leaves.  For this card the twist was leaves and pumpkins.  I used an image from Doodle Pantry, and embossed leaves and well as had leaves on the die cut Spellbinder.  The image has curves/swirls in the vine as well as the pearls I added to the bottom.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create

Happy Birthday Deer

On Monday, it was my Uncle Dennis' Birthday so this is the card that I made for him.  I actually used a stamp that I had!!!  The sentiment is from TLC, Create from a wonderful birthday set.  I usually don't have male birthday cards pre-made so I had to get this together for him.
