Friday wow already. Only 40 days left of 2008. Where has the time gone. The weather here is cold today. Not cold enough for snow of course but cold enough I had to carry all my plants in and cover up the big ones again outside. I am sitting here looking out the window and there are gray clouds ontop of the blue sky. You can see patches of pretty blue shining through. I think I am going to start some Christmas presents this morning. Until then I want to show you 2 cards I did this week. First I did my Thanksgiving Cards.
My Recipe was:
Stamp Set: Stampin Up Harvest Home
Paper: SU Cardstock Very Vanilla, Garden Green and Really Rust the yellow is from a pattern package from Michaels or Hobby Lobby
Ink: All SU Very Black Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip,Really Rust, Summer Sun, Real Red, Mellow Moss, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Always Artichoke
Embelishments: Orange Fibers and Black Eyelets.
Next I ran into a Friend yesterday and she asked if I had a Birthday card for a 5 year old made. I told her no but I would go make one for her.
So I thought what would catch the eye of a 5 year old. COLORS!!!! Lots of color..
But it is a boy so no flowers or pretty ribbons so what to do what to do...
Well the great mind ha ha this is what I came up with
CardStock: All SU Real Red, Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, Glorious Gren and Ballet Blue
Ink: SU Craft Ink Whisper White
Embelishments: varies buttons
Stamp Set: Happy Brithday from Favorite Teddy Bear
