Blue Christmas

Hello friends!! Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you're here in the states.  It is always so comforting to have family, food and a fire going at Thanksgiving.  Just CAN'T understand why it takes around two days to prepare all the dishes, 20 minutes to eat, then a few hours of clean've gotta wonder about the absurdity of such a thing! LOL...Well, I finally got a card made and have started on Christmas.  This sweet card is done in my favorite color combo (blue and white).  I have always been a lover of anything that is just these two colors.  My wedding china is blue and white and I still love it after all these years.  Enjoy!

I used just a few supplies:  Cricut Cartridge 'Joys of the Season' I used the snowflake pg. 60 and the Tree pg 63.  Cuttlebug folder - Snowflakes, VersaMagic ink in Aegean blue, Paper by K & company and Cordinations, and one little Heidi Grace button.  Pretty simple, huh?  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Hope you all have a GREAT December and that the holiday spirit is in your heart and home! HUGS

Happy Thanksgiving Card

Autumn Blessings Everyone!  Such beautiful weather today, chilly but blue skies.  My Trees have finally all turned, and in fact, are getting a bit bare.  Ahh Christmas will be here before we can turn around, thus, this is the end of the Thanksgiving cards.  I found the prettiest, glittery pine cone from K & Co. so I just HAD to us it!  Enjoy!

The Cricut Cartridges I used were Elegant Edges and Flower Shoppe.  Love BOTH these wonderful carts!  Bling is from K & Company and Jolee's Boutique, Paper from MME and Coredinations, VersaMagic Ink in Pumpkin spice, Gingerbread and Brick Red, Zig Marker in Brown for dots and a digi Sentiment ( I borrowed this sentiment.)  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Have a wonderful rest of your week and hopefully I'll get another card on here.  There are just so many fabulous challenges to work on...The fun never ends in blogland! Hugs to you All!

Thanksgiving Card - Acorn

I guess I need to get a couple of Thanksgiving cards in the mail so have been feverishly working on that.  This card was inspired by one of my favorite Thanksgiving Hymns: For the Beauty of the Earth.  It is just a lovely song with a sweet thankful meaning.  I love the earth I live's beauty is breathtaking everyday.  I have two beautiful trees outside my bedroom window that are gorgeous no matter what the season, but especially lovely in the fall.  Hope you enjoy this season and this card!

I used papers from Kraft, Core'dinations, DCSV, and MME.  Cricut Cartridge: Give a Hoot for the leaves;  Twine in Honeydew, Mandarin, and Cappuccino; VersaMagic ink in Jumbo Java; Jolee's Boutique for the acorn (don't you love the stitching on it) and the bling inside.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
I realize that is quite a list, but everyone is in the Thanksgiving mood!  Thanks from dropping by.  I appreciate all the lovely comments. If you are not a follower...hey come follow my blog, I want to get to know each and everyone of you!  HUGS

60th Anniversary Card and Guest Designer

My wonderful parents are celebrating their 60th,  November 2nd.  That they are both here with us and in good health is truly a blessing.   Along with my parent's Anniversary , I am also a Guest Designer for TRY IT ON TUESDAYS, for the week starting November 1st. The Challenge is Unique Shaped Cards so be sure to stop by for a look see and experience this wonderful blog.  The sponser of this challenge is One Stop Card Crafts, so also go see their great products.  Here is my unique shaped card.  I made a Criss Cross fold card.

It is amazing how few products I used.  I used Cricut Cartridges Elegant Edges and Happily Ever After.  Paper is DCWV from their wonderful Glitter Stack and also from Coredinations.  Midnight Black Versamagic Ink, 3 ribbon roses, and 2 Jolee's Jewels.  The poem is my original creation and don't you just love the black and white photo of my folks on their wedding day?  My mom made the wedding gown herself.  It was so lovely and then she let my sisters and I play dress up in it when we were little...Mom, what were you thinking!!!   Thanks for viewing and visiting with me awhile! HUGS to you all.
