With Sympathy

Hello, friends!

A final "bird" card and then I'm off to butterflies!  Ha ha  I seem to have a thing right now for flying critters! The dies I used were Joy Crafts Vintage Flourishes Birds and Precious Marieke Winter Wonderland.



I love the oval on this card & it really sets off the birds.  I don't know about you, but I am THRILLED to be getting away from bird cards tomorrow!  As much as I love them, I'm tired of looking at them. Tomorrow is our QKR Stampede weekly challenge!

With Sympathy

Happy Hump Day!

Hope your week is going well!  To continue with the bird theme I have had going for several days, I have a beautiful and simple sympathy card to share today.  The oval is a Spellbinders Elegant Oval die and the bird is an Impression Obsession Bird on Branch die.


This is another of my favorite dies I don't use nearly enough.  I love it for a sympathy card!

I'll be back tomorrow with the final "Bird" themed card......I'm cheering too!

Birthday Wishes!

Hello, friends!

Another bird inspired die from my stash.  I had forgotten how many I actually had so it's a good thing I was looking for a bird several days ago.  Lol!

This die really makes a pretty birthday card all by itself. This bird die is a Tutti Designs Bird Branch Chorus & the scallop behind it is from a Lifestyles Nesting Scallop Circle die.


I went with a square card on this one because of the size of the die.  I'll be back tomorrow with a beautiful sympathy card (also with a bird theme).

Birdhouse Birthday!

Happy Monday!

I hope your week is off to a great start!  Do you have your turkey yet?  Hopefully, he is thawing out in your refrigerator!

As I mentioned yesterday, I found some great dies I had forgotten all about and here is another one. This is Tutti Designs Birdhouse Garden.


I adore this die & will certainly remember to pull it out more often as it makes a gorgeous birthday card!  And I love the shade of green I found to go under it.

I'll see you tomorrow with another bird themed card.

Pink Birthdays!

Hello, everyone!

I have so many dies I sometimes forget to pull them out & use them.  I happened to be looking for a bird die the other day & came across this beauty.It is a Tutti Design Bird Tapestry die. It makes a beautiful card all by itself, but I added some flower corners from an old punch and perked it up even further.


I love this die and it makes a gorgeous card all by itself.  I'll be back tomorrow with another bird themed card I also "discovered" while looking through my dies.

Hugs,

With Sympathy

Howdy!

I have a lot of embossing folders and even have this one that also cuts out some areas.  I forget to use them a lot but came across this one the other day & dragged it out. Unfortunately, wherever I found it, I have lost it again so can't tell you the exact name.  The die, however, is Elizabeth Craft "With Sympathy" and I will look further for the embossing folder.


What a pretty card it made.  I'll have to grab it more often!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Give Thanks

Hello, again!

Since Thanksgiving is next week, it's a good time to remember all our blessings and to give thanks for them.  The QKR Stampede challenge theme for today is "Give Thanks" and I'm sure you have lots of ideas for a card to do just that.  I chose digi # 14515 - Hunting Turkey.  I'm guessing he may be thankful he has a musket on his shoulder which should prevent him from becoming Thanksgiving dinner!  The die is a Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Borders.


I've always loved this cute turkey and he makes a perfect Thanksgiving card.  Pull out your favorite stamps & see what you can come up with!   What are YOU thankful for?  I'm thankful for my family, first of all.  And all of the many, many blessings I have been given.  God has been VERY good to me, and I thank Him every single day!

Hugs,
Sherri
