A Fall Card.....


Good morning bloggers!  I have a Fall/Halloween card I want to share this morning.  This little Magnolia image was sent to me by a wonderful blogger friend and I colored her using Ranger distress Inks.  I used a Spellbinders Oval to cut out the image and mounted onto a 6 X 6 card base that is layered with purple and white.  The corners are also from Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Accents Dies.  The die cuts behind the flowers are Marianne dies, sorry I don't have the name of them.  The flowers are from wild Orchid Crafts and they were white to begin with and I sponged inks on the tips of them to make them match my image.  I also made a little tag to slide into the side for a little gift to go along with the card.  This card would make a really cute Halloween card or even a Fall card.  This one will be going into my stash for just the right occasion. 

I have several cards I need to get to my sister, the enabler, so she can take them to the nursing home patients.  I just love that my cards bring some joy for these patients who need a card to give to someone who has done them a kindness.  I have never sold any of my cards .... never tried.  I just like giving them.   Who am I kidding...I just love making them.  That is where my "Joy" comes into play.  This is what makes me happy!  Many years ago when I first started my Journey, I would have never thought I would wind up making cards...but I truly have a passion for this and I hope by posting these I bring you some joy!

Have a wonderful Monday and wherever you are and whatever you are doing, remember to "Breathe"
While I was pulling weeds and Not Breathing a couple of days ago, I did something to my hip and so I've been babying it for a few days.  No more pulling weeds for awhile.  Looks like I can play, as long as I can sit for a little while at a time.  And I will have some quiet time to "Breathe"!  Nothing like getting old.  It sort of snuck up on me!

Heat - Ice - Rest,,,, for the hip, that's what works for me. My brother made me a tube sock filled with rice that I put in the microwave to heat up. Then you can lay it and move it around and it feels so Good!!!

Glenda, this is so, so cute! The little girl is darling, and I love your design with the tag/bookmark in the secret pocket. Sorry about your hip. I have to do everything a little slower these days.

What a sweet card. I love the idea of taking them to a nursing home. I have a bunch I will do so tomorrow. It is nice to think my cards might bring a little joy to someone. Hope your back/hip is better...how did we get old so fast?
