Friday Friend Share- Fall Hearts

Jeannie sent me this cute card that has fall colored hearts falling from the tree. Isn't it cute?

Throwback Thursday- Truly Grateful

I know a few people who make Thanksgiving cards and send them out, but it is too much work to do cards for Thanksgiving and Christmas (IMHO). But this set can be used for fall cards that say thank you to special people in your life. It is always good to be thankful and we need to incorporate it into our everyday lives, not just at Thanksgiving time.

I'm thankful for you...the people all around the world, who take time to look at my blog to see what I have crafted, and who occasionally leave a comment of encouragement or commendation. Thanks!


This set is called, Truly Grateful.

Have a blessed day,
Trude

Tuesday Tutorial #112 Basket of Wishes

I am having a hard time giving summer up and one of the things that I always love about summer is all the strawberries that I find at stands and supermarkets! 
This stamp set is quite versatile, it has fall stamps in the set, but I thought that I would go ahead and make one more strawberry card before I turn to all the fall and Holiday cards.


I will send you the Tuesday Tutorial by email if you will send me your email address requesting to be added to my Tuesday Tutorial list (please send it to me privately to the email listed in my contacts and put in the subject line "add me to TT list"). This list will ONLY be used to send out the TT each week, it will not be used for marketing in any manner whatsoever.
Or download it now!

Friday Friend Share- Snowmen

This Friday Friend Share card is from Cathy. It is interesting in that she used a mylar sheet for the front and embossed it with a snowflake pattern. Then she applied a snowman that was stamped on white paper and cut out.
The inside of the card is also stamped with the sentiment and snowmen. I've included photos of the outside layer, the inside of the card and the completed folded card.
Nice work Cathy. It's a unique one.




Have a blessed day,
Trude

Throwback Thursday- The Newborn King

I thought I would do something different with this card, so I made a tri-fold. The main image has a natural dividing line that made it easy to do. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the two parts, but it would have been easier to just cut the stamp at that point.

The folded card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/2". The flaps are both two and a half inches wide. It isn't real easy to tell from the photo that I heat embossed everything with silver embossing powder. It looks great on the Midnight Muse cardstock.
