Sweet Pumpkin Card

Happy November, friends!  And what a beautiful start to the month it is!  Love the chill in the air along with the sunny skies.  I spent some time today helping my Dad trim the bushes in his yard and do some raking.  Love this time of year!  I have a couple of doctor appointments this week and am hoping to get some things resolved and praying that all will be well.

My card that I'm sharing today uses a stamp and sentiment set called "November Girl" by Unity Stamp Co.  She is colored with Copic markers and given some sparkle with Wink of Stella on the pumpkins and Stickles elsewhere.  The pattern paper is from Authentique's Pleasant Collection.  The brown shimmer cardstock is from DCWV.  The sequins are an autumn mix from Studio Katia.  If you click on the photo, you can see the details a bit better.

I've used this stamp set before and love it.  It is so perfect for this time of the year.  I am using it with a Thanksgiving sentiment inside.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.  I appreciate the sweet comments that have been left.  Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!  Enjoy every moment!

Birdhouse Card

Hello all!  It's a rainy, windy day here, but I love these kind of days.  To me, it makes me just want to snuggle under a blanket with a hot cup of tea or cocoa and enjoy a good book or movie.

Today, I am sharing a card made with beautiful papers from Lemoncraft.  The sweet birdhouse is a Magnolia DooHickey die.  All other items are from my stash.

I know this card isn't seasonal, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by.  I really appreciate the kind comments left.  I hope you have a wonderful day and all good things coming your way in the future.

Heart of Gratitude Card

Hi there, everyone.  It's been awhile since I posted and I have some things I made months ago to share.  Activity on this blog hasn't been good.  I'm wondering if my posts need to be more interesting.  I don't know how to do that! 

Here is a card I made awhile back using a stamps from Unity Stamp Company.  I know a lot of people do not care for stamps without a face but I like them as they are different.

The image was colored with Copic markers with Stickles added for sparkle.  I layered a piece of pink ribbon on top of a lace border die cut from Tim Holtz.  A few sequins were scattered about for additional sparkle.  Unfortunately, I do not remember what paper I used for the background but I think it may be from Prima.

A little update regarding my health issues post surgery is that some issues still remain.  I'm hoping that all will resolve in due time as God sees fit.  It does no good to worry.  Things could be worse!

Thank you to those who left comments on my last post.  I appreciate each and every one of them.  I also appreciate anyone who takes the time to visit this blog.  Have a wonderful week ahead!

Shabby Happy Birthday Tag

Hello there!  Just a quick update on my surgery.  It's been almost three weeks.  My neck is healing well.  I have just been dealing with some strange side effects; namely, numbness in toes and odd muscle spasms.  The surgeon said it has nothing to do with my calcium levels but that maybe it is a side effect from the anesthesia.  I somehow do not think it would last this long.  I'm trying not to stress about it but would like to have an answer.  We will see.

On a lighter note, I have a tag that I made quite awhile ago that I do not believe I have shared yet.  Here it is.

The papers I used are from Pion Design's "Life is Peachy" collection.  I love the soft shades and sweet images that make up these papers.  The flowers and lace are from my stash.  Some of the flowers are Prima.  The beautiful butterfly and chipboard are from Reneabouquets.  I used a vintage button to attach the birthday ticket.  To finish things off, a bit of lace trim and pearls were tied at the top. 

If you click on each image, you can see the details better.  Since Fall is almost here, I'm glad I posted this springlike tag now!

Thank you so much for taking time to stop by and visit as well as for the sweet comments that were left on my previous post.  I hope things are going well for you wherever you are on this planet.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a wonderful new week ahead!

Birdhouse Tag

Hi friends!  I do not believe I've ever shared this tag I made several months ago, so here it is.

The papers for the background are from Lemoncraft "Forget-Me-Not."  All the flowers, embellishments and lace are from my stash.  The sweet 3-D birdhouse is a Magnolia DooHickey die.

Here, you can see the dimension from the side view.  If you click on each photo, you can see a larger view of the details.

That's about all for me today.  I do have one favor to ask of you and that is to keep me in your prayers as I undergo parathyroid gland surgery on Tuesday.  I do appreciate it!  As the time grows closer, my anxiety mounts.  I am doing my best to stay positive but those nagging thoughts do get in my way!   I am a big baby!

Thank you so much for taking time to stop by.  Here in my neck of the woods, we are having a break from the heat and humidity finally.  It is most enjoyable!  Have a most wonderful week ahead!

Today is Your Day

Hello friends!  Just thought I'd pop in with a quick post.  Today is my birthday.  I am so grateful to have reached this point in life.  I do have surgery coming up in the near future but am hopeful for good results.  In the meantime, I am enjoying spending time with my sweet little grandson.  What a blessing!

Today's card was made a few months ago for a sister-in-law's birthday.  I am just getting around to sharing it!

The beautiful stamp and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Company and was colored with Copic markers.  I used some Wink of Stella and Diamond Stickles to add sparkle here and there.  I don't remember was paper I used but I am thinking it is from Prima.  I added a few sequins for extra sparkle.  If you click on the photo, you may be able to see the sparkle better.

Thank you so much for taking time to stop by and for your kind comments.  Enjoy the weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!

Butterfly Tag

Hi there!  It's been very hot and humid here these days and I am so thankful for air conditioning!  Summer is not my favorite season, so I'm just biding my time until the Fall! 

Today, I have a tag to share that I had not gotten around to post.  This is one of my all-time favorite tags, so I hope you like it.

The base is a heavy chipboard tag by Tim Holtz and is covered in paper from Prima's "Lavender" collection.  Then the layering began using various pieces of lace and flowers.  The resin angels are from Melissa Frances and the beautiful butterflies are from Reneabouquets

This tag was a joy to put together.  Plus, it is about time to use up all the pretty trims and embellishments I have been hoarding! 

Thank you so much for taking time to stop by and visit.  I am always happy to see when someone comments.  Have a wonderful week ahead!
