Enjoy the Seasons - Give Thanks

Happy Monday everybody.  I made a card using Enjoy the Seasons cartridge for Thanksgiving.   Sometimes I envision the way I want to make a card, and when I start putting it together it doesn't look so hot.  I wanted to use the fall tree for the background on this, but it was all too wild.  So here's what I ended up with:

I used stardust Stickles to outline the stems and lines of the squash and pumpkins, and a little red pearl for the hedgehog's eye!  Thanks for stopping by :)

Lori's Garden - Swinging Bird

Hello, I made a little card using Lori's Garden.  I used the little bird on a swing along with a branch and some flowers I had left over.  I used glue dots to raise the layers just a little (there are 3 or 4 layers) 

The background paper had glittery flowers,  I used some Bliss Mist on the bird for a little bling, clear gem for the birds eye and red pearl beads for the centers of the flowers.  It doesn't have a sentiment, yet.  Thanks, have a marvelous day!

Lori's Garden - Flowers and Bird

I guess we're going fishing tomorrow, so I have time to post another inspirational card I made using Lori's Garden.  I''m loving that cartridge!

I blinged it up with a clear gem for the birds eye, some glitter around the bird and the flowers along with pearls in the centers.  The flowers have 3 layers (they would have 5 or 6 if I used them all), I used glue dots to add a little dimension.  I also used glue dots and doubled them under the birds head and wing to make it look like it was flying.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed day!

Lori's Garden - Butterfly and Rose

We're supposed to go fishing tomorrow, so I wanted to post my next card today.  It's made from Lori's Garden, a beautiful cart full of flowers, birds and butterflies.  You're probably going to see a lot more of it.  I also wanted to make some inspirational cards, so here is the first of hopefully many more:

It says " .. the earth is filled with the lovingkindness of the Lord Psalm 33:5.  I really wanted to bling it up, so I sprayed the flower and butterfly with Bliss Mist, added glitter to the butterfly, and put pearls in the center of the rose and the little flowers around it.  It is this time of the year I do feel the lovingkindness of our Lord.  He must really have an eye for beauty, just look at all the colors!  Have a great day!

Enjoy the Seasons - Fall Squirrel

Hello, and Happy Friday.  It seems like it's been forever since I've made anything, or blogged.  I've been working on cleaning all my card mess out of the dining room and putting them in my unused craft room.  I've cleaned out stuff I didn't think I would use, and found a small kitchen table (my sons) I could put in the room.  After all that, I don't like it.  It feels too isolated and the table is too small :(  .  Crafting sure takes a lot of room.  But I have my dining room back :)

I thought it would be nice to combine the fall leaves and the squirrel stump on the Enjoy the Seasons cartridge.  However, after printing and cutting, the fall leaves looked kind of faded.  So I used these leaves I bought on sale some time ago.  I also added a googlie eye to the squirrel! Thanks for looking.
