Thank You Card

It's Tuesday so that means it is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday.  The theme is always anything goes for participants but the DT is always given a theme for some extra fun.  this week the DT was challenged to make Thank You cards.

 I always try to keep a stash of thank you cards because you just never know when you will need one.
 I love this adorable little guy, Flower bunch, from the Winnie Special Moments collection. He makes a perfect thank you card. The papers are from Eden Paper Heaven 1 bundle.

Trick or Treat

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps.  The theme is Autumn Colors.
I have discovered I like digital scrapbook papers for my crafting.  They don't take up tons of room in my craft room and when you find a pattern you like, you can use it over and over again without a trip to the store or the fear the line will be discontinued. I found this great paper pack called Choose Joy from Ooh La La Scraps.

Card Details:
Stamp: Magnolia Stamps
Gina Marie Designs square and circle dies
Corner leaf cut from Storybook Cricut cartridge
Papers: Choose Joy from Ooh La La Scraps

Happy World Card Making Day!! Almost everyday is card making day for me.  LOL!  But seriously, It's nice to have a day for all of us card makers.  What are you working on today?  I have been busy with Halloween cards and of course a few Christmas cards too.
I took a break from making square cards and made a more tradional 4.25x5.5 card.

We go Together Like...

I made this card for my husband for our 27th anniversary.  It's simple and silly but sometimes a little silliness is what you need.

Here is the inside:

To go along with the card, I made him a batch of chocolate chip cookies and picked up some milk from a local dairy.  Our anniversary was last week but he is just now getting his milk and cookies.  Last week was his chemo week and he is unable to tolerate cold beverages so I waited until his side effects were gone.

Card Details:
Gina marie design dies
Spellbinders dies
Magnolia stamps for heart corner
Tag: Tags, bags, boxes and more Cricut cartridge
