Thankful with Sentimental Sundays

I am going to keep this post short and sweet. It is the Memorial Day holiday weekend here in the United States and I am sure you have fun things planned

This week's theme on the Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog is "Thankful". I decided to make a card for my daughter's teacher. I broke out my brand new pad of Thrift Shop paper from October Afternoon. I LOVE this paper. (I was excited to hear that Archivers is going to start carrying October Afternoon! Woohoo!)

I was inspired to pair up the sunny yellow paper with the black & white polka dot paper after seeing this photo for the EtsyInspired Challenge.

I also prettied up the inside.

Please join us and share your "Thankful" cards for a chance to win some wonderful digital sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs. Stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the DT and to download this week's free sentiments.

Take a moment to remember our fallen heroes this weekend. If you would like to make a card thanking our men and women in the armed forces, Ann from Raindrop Echo Designs offered these fabulous freebies, For Our Troops, for your use.

Thank you for looking! Have a happy and safe holiday week end.

gorgeous inside and out! Been 'hearing' a lot about this October Afternoon paper. I can certainly see why you like, no LOVE it!! We really can't appreciate our teachers enough!!
Oh, this is fabulous. It's so sunny! I love that yellow patterned paper. And you made the inside pretty too. I am always wondering if I should add something to the inside of my cards.

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
