Harvest Blessings!

Hello, Friends!

Happy Saturday to you!  I hope all is well your way and that you are enjoying the weekend.  I got my housework out of the way and decided to make a couple fall cards, but right now I'm sharing with you a couple cards I made while we went camping with my sis and her hubby.  Just a couple of quick easy cards to show today.  I don't remember the company the sentiment is from, but the chipboard pumpkins are from Echo Park.

Another card using an Echo Park tag.  Tags are easy to make cards, right?!  

The weather turned much cooler today.  We did enjoy a nice day in Berlin, Ohio(Amish Country) yesterday.  I was able to get some Christmas gifts and a couple birthday gifts for my sister.  We bought some kettle corn, pumpkin cookies, and a raspberry pie.  We waited in line awhile to eat at Der Dutchman, but it's always worth it for the food is so delicious!  Not sure if we will have many more sunny warm days before winter sets in, so I'm glad that we made the trip.

Ok, well that's all for now.  Take care and thanks so much for dropping by today!

Season's Tweetings!

Hi, Friends!

Happy Saturday to you!  I'm up in my craft room looking at some Christmas cards that I have made recently.  I thought I could enter this one over at the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge.  I spotted the cardinals in the second photo image.  

For my card, I started with a red card base and used Altenew wash tape for the background.  The birdhouse is from SSS.  The cardinal is from Newton's Nook.  The sentiment is from Honey Bee.  I added a bow, gold dots, and white spray ink for the final touch.  I do love cardinals and get so excited when I see them around here.  I haven't seen one in awhile except when we went camping a few weeks ago.  Just this morning I saw a blue jay.  It's so fun watching the birds especially at the bird feeders and bird bath.

Well, that's all for today.  We are watching the Ohio State v. Penn State football game right now.  It looks like it's going to be a good game!  Go Bucks!!

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and have a great weekend!

Merry Christmas and Pumpkin Patch...

Hi, Friends!

How are you on this Friday afternoon?  I hope you all are doing well!  It's going to be a busy weekend here with the Apple Festival going on in town.  Good food and fun will be on the agenda for the next couple of days.  I just hope the forecast, which is calling for rain will hold off for awhile.  

I made Christmas cards a couple weeks ago, so I thought I'd share a couple with you.  They were quite easy as you will see.  The above card is with a Christmas tree die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The sentiment is from the same company.  A bow added to finish the card.

Next up,  a simple card using a card panel.  This one is vintage with the sweet angel singing a Christmas carol.

  Gems, star, and a bow to complete the card.  A couple more Christmas cards for my stash.  This one will take a couple stamps.  And, I hear that stamp prices are going up again.  Not what I want to hear when I create layers on my cards, oh well!

We've been wanted to get to the pumpkin patch to decorate outside, so that is what we did this morning.  Here are a few photos of our fun time.

Ok, that's all for now.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by, take care!

Happy Fall!

Hi, Friends!

It's a hot one again today.  And, what a time for the air conditioning not to work!  But, hubby did order a part a few days ago and got it repaired today with the help of our son.  The days have been beautiful, but just a bit warm for me.  For the weekend, it will turn much cooler into the 50's and 60's.  Oh, well, Mother Nature rules, lol!

I'd like to share with you a quick card I made today.  I'll be seeing a friend over the weekend and wanted to give her a fall card.  This one was very easy peasy with Echo Park paper and chipboard pieces.  I added a little white bow on the vase of flowers for the finishing touch.  

Well, that's all for now.  I hope all is well in your world.  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by, take care!
