FALL COLORS

For some reason, I love making cards with the maroons, burnt orange and mustard yellow colors. Some of the artwork for these cards came from a scrapbook page-a-day calendar which I have enjoyed for years. 


I bet you did not notice that one of the brads in the corners is a different color?

I gave the above card to SK when her son died. Does anyone recognize the Creative Memories patterned paper? 

I gave the above card to SM when her mother-in-law died.

My husband mailed me the above card when I was in Pittsburgh.  I was surprised and pleased to receive it!  The flowers are from an outdated calendar I bought at Hobby Lobby for less than a dollar…. I love a bargain!

Mardi Gras thank you….

I made 9 Mardi Gras thank you cards, because different people hosted us for different balls and parades and some gave us shoes, Mardi Gras shirts, and someone even gave me a ball gown.

Here are the cards:

Here are some birthday cards I made in January,  2015, mostly at the direction of my son to give to birthday parties.   I tried to remember who I sent them to as well!
