Oh dear no card from me..😲 I’ve been busy rearranging rooms upstairs so I didn’t get a card done before Tuesday.. may try to add one later though. If you’ve stopped by this is the card sketch and theme challenge, give it ac try!
Here is the fall colors card. Did you know you could make a card out of tag punches? I started with an 11 x 4 1/4 piece of card stock. I punched the edge with the tag lining up so that the two points would meet when it was folded. The one edge is folded in this makes the back of the card. With it folded in measure to 5 1/2 for the center fold. The front is not even with the back and you then used ribbon or twine to hold the card closed.
I had card class with my retired apartment complex ladies last week. They always make two cards and enjoy it so much. I like the challenge of putting something together for them that will be lovely yet easy to do in the 2 hours we are together. Sunflowers have been on my mind and fall in general.
Oh my, I almost forgot to put this on!! Every Saturday is my baking day. Ask anyone in my family and they will tell you that on Saturday I bake cookies. Our family consisted of four boys so we went through plenty of cookies. As they grew I would put cookies in baggies in the freezer that were only to be used for lunch boxes when they went to work. I am still doing that to this day!
My children all know when they come home there will most likely be cookies in the cookie Tupperware container for them to eat. Most often there is something chocolate in this house, I did not make a chocolate batter in my picture.... maybe vanilla pudding😲😄. We raise chickens and our eggs are brown so I had to make the eggs brown, some have speckles on them.
I hope you’ll join us this is a cute theme, and the sketch is pretty easy also.
I have a ton of male birthday cards that I need for the last quarter of the year. So here’s the one going to brother in law that lives out west. He’s a horse man so this should be good, hope he likes it.
I made it with some Stampscapes and Stamp a Scene stamps that I’ve had for a little while and not used yet.
Since I last posted there have been three deaths in our family. My sister-in-law who used to help me quite a bit with my wheelchair-bound mother-in-law suffered a stroke four months ago and she passed away. She will be missed so much not only because of her help but because of her smile and the sweet friendship that we shared. Her husband and my husband farm together so this is been the hardest one for me. Some extended cousins that live in Tennessee have passed away also one from COVID and the last one from a car accident.
Seems I’ve been using a lot of sympathy cards lately so I decided that was what I needed to make. I’m not sure what this card is called but it follows the multiple folds theme. Thanks for stopping.
Oh my goodness, I just about missed putting a card up. I’ve been so busy visiting family out of town and getting everything from the garden...
