She Believed

Hey Ya'll! I hope you are enjoying the Fall weather where ever you are. The temps have been lower here and I feel a touch of Fall in the air! Love it! My Favorite season! Today I have a card for you  for encouragement. I made this card with a cast on my hand, and thought the sentiment was perfect! This also has turned out to be my "end of Summer" card. I used several items that I had purchased and never used, like the stamp and dies. Sorry if this picture looks a little fuzzy, lol. I also took the pic with the cast on my hand. I hope you enjoy and have a crafty weekend! Thanks for looking!

Fishy Wishes

Hello everyone! Today I have a quick card for you using bits and pieces of leftovers from my table. I stamped the fish and weeds at a Hostess Club with Stampin" Up a few months back. I used a piece of bakers twine that was laying around and some netting from a "candy coins" bag at Christmas that I had saved. It all came together pretty quick once I decided to make it into a birthday card. Thanks for peeking!

Supplies- Stampin' Up: "By the Tide" stamp set, cardstock and seam binding. McGill : Label punch, sentiment on label: hand lettered. CTMH: Epoxy Bubbles

Jeanette's Archive

Hey Ya'll! Good news! I no longer have a cast on my hand, Yay!!  I went back to the doctor last week and he removed the cast and gave me a removable splint to wear. I only wear it when I am doing any heavy lifting and such as that. I am now able to make cards without too much trouble, and cook , and clean, and... My Hubby is ecstatic! He has hung in there for too long, and I am so grateful for it!
I have a card for you today that I played around with a bit. I intentionally double stamped and off set the image to produce a calligraphy look with negative space. Does that make sense? This is a new stamp from CTMH that came out of Jeanette's archives( the Founder and CEO of Close To My Heart). I also punched some small flowers and used some Vintage stationary as my background mat. Found it in the drawer when I was rummaging around looking for something. I decided I would use it on a card because who really sends handwritten letters anymore? I know I haven't for years, obviously! Just thought I would share and let you know that I'm back in business for the time being! Thanks for looking!

Supplies- Vintage stationary and seam binding for the bow from my stash, Outside sentiment: CTMH "Flowering Thanks" Jeanette's Archives, Small flowers: EKSuccess punch "Mini Flowers", Inside sentiment: Studio G, Border punch: Martha Stewart "Leafy Vine".
