Scallop Spider

Now this little guy is an oldie, he first made his appearance either in 2009 or 2010, I don't remember which and he was used to cover the old-style of York Peppermint Patties before they changed their packaging.  I bet they wonder why their sales fell for the next year!  I used the retired Spider Web embossing folder, which was perfect for this card, so glad I held onto it.

Card stock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Blackberry Bliss.
Retired Corner punch, Scallop and Ticket punch.
Whisper White Craft ink

I hope you have all enjoyed my Halloween cards this year, it is the most I have ever made.  Mary

Out On A Limb

Here is my one of my Halloween cards that I'm making for my daughter to give to some of her co-workers where she works at part-time.

I used sponges to do the background shading with, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant.  I used the Blendabilities to color parts of the witch with.  The stamp set is retired, Out On A Limb.  The green ribbon is also retired, trying to use up old supplies right now.  The punched fence is a Martha Stewart punch, which is about 4 or 5 years old, I thought it would look good with this stamp set.  All in all a pretty easy card to make.

Enjoy!  Mary

Love & Sympathy

Well I've fallen behind on my Christmas card making.  I needed another birthday card for one of my client who's 90th birthday was Tuesday.  This lady loves to be out in the yard working and still mows her own lawn!  She inspires me to exercise and stay healthy!  So I made another card using the Corner Garden background stamp like the one HERE.  I did use different colors for this latest one.  I hope she liked it.

Well sometimes in life we need sympathy cards and that was the case for me earlier in the week.  My deceased cousins' husband passed away, so I needed to send a card to his daughter.  Bill was a great guy and we always enjoyed visiting with him and my cousin when we could, they lived in Omaha.  After my cousin passed away, Bill took really good care of my aunt and did a lot of things for her, I'm sure she will really miss him too.

Here is the card that I sent.  It is simple but I think elegant and I think the deep blue is a good color for a masculine sympathy card.

Here is what I used:
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Midnight Muse (retired), Very Vanilla
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso and Night of Navy
Honeycomb Embossing Folder
Linen Thread

Well, this is all for today, I hope to be back soon to see you all.  Mary
