More Autumn Greetings~ Crafted by Hand.

Another set.

Sunny Sunflower Blessings ~ just a simple silk sunflower. For

some reason I was not able to crop this here at WP.

(note to self; replace with cropped image)

Hope ~

Geoform as the focal piece. This is a die from a little known about small company called G.  Included on the front panel are a pair of Silver Dollar Pods from my yard, & a skeletonized leaf.

Just Boo! ~

A simple layered mix of punched and die cut flower shapes. I’ve been a fan of adding shadowing around the edges. Here I even included this on the flower petals.

Framed Boo ~

I said I am awful adding titles cards.

Hedgehogs in a Pile ~ Thought it was an eye catching title,.. at least.

This front panel is an image that came with a new product I tried for the first time called “Flower Soft”. Pretty cool stuff. These little critter’s fur is actually soft to the touch. And it was so easy, no mess. The directions advised to use their wet adhesive which I did not have, so I used my quick dry tacky glue. Worked fine. I’ll be buying more colors.

A Hoot Hootin Hello ~

This was just silly fun.

Thanks for stopping by.  Keep coming back….I’m far from done.

Creating Autumn Abundance

Another set of cards created for Autumn. (and others not related to Autumn)

 I like to create cards that are more seasonal than for a particular holiday. A few holiday specific sneak in any way. Autumn is my favorite season, so much so that I greatly dislike using the term “Fall” except for when it’s time for me to recall whether it’s turn (fall ) the clock back, or spring (it) forward. The word Autun invites memories of the deep rich hues and tones that develop when the temperature starts changing. The smell of decaying damp leaves reminds me I’m alive and part of the ever-changing cycle.                        I really do have a thing for Autumn. 

Country Pumpkin ~ what silly fun making up names just to separate my cards with a title. Such power!

Shoe Tie Ribbon ~ What else? Any ideas? I used a paper doily cut in half, then used the doilies natural holes to ‘shoe tie’ the two halves together.

Shoe Tied Ribbon.~

I know, I really am stretching.

A better idea is welcome.

I created this for a friend

who is fighting for her life with

stage four Breast Cancer. The center piece with the pink

ribbon is a magnet she has

the option of removing.

Wicked Creepy Spider~

I love this image and

could hardly wait to use it.

Trick or Treat… or not ~

My first experience with

Geoforms. Pretty cool.
