Rushing in this morning to share a card set that I made, and since two are destined for Reverse Confetti’s November Sketch for You to try, I’m under the wire!
Last July, on our way to Bend OR (love X love Bend…), we spent the night in Kennewick, WA, where, the following morning, I went for the first time to Hobby Lobby. WOW! During my ‘*15 minutes only* of assigned shopping time (which I had to impose, because left to my own devices, I’d likely still be there, wandering the aisles, shopping, wandering...!), I found a stamp that I knew would make my mom smile because it captures the essence of Christmas. I’m all about making my mom smile…
In an effort to create a bunch o’ cards for my mom to send out or take to her neighbourhood Senior Care centre craft fare, I’ve decided to make at least two, maybe three of each card. In this case, I made three ‘different’ cards, each featuring the same stamp.
Without further ado:
I’m loving the colours at Merry Monday #83,
Oh, to have cupboards filled with these delights...
and used that combination for two of my cards, pairing one with the wonderfully versatile sketch over at Reverse Confetti.and the other with Deconstructed Sketch #126
Merry Monday + Reverse Confetti:
Merry Monday + Deconstructed #126
My third card uses the colour combination from Festive Friday (red + white + aqua = pretty+++) and a repeat of the Reverse Confetti sketch
All three cards use Hero Arts Grenadine Note Cards - such a pretty deep red shade, in real life...)
I’m also sharing over at Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge #98, which I visited, finally yesterday (emerged from under the rock!!) Special thank you to Darnell, who's a loyal Pixie fan, for tthe 'connection' incentive. What a wonderfully inspiring site! I commented on Di’s amazing W-O-W card (white-on-white and it is WOW, WOW, WOW) asking if I could join in the fun. Moments later, she responded with a most warm, welcoming YES. Request made; invitation accepted, with delight and gratitude! (Be sure to checkout the "rules"...you'll love them!!).
Three cards heading to mom; sure hope she likes them! I may make a few more for her, too, with this stamp and a similarly themed sentiment from Verve. Joy, rejoicing and family: for me, that's *Christmas*.
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
