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!
