Some Thanksgiving Cards from Our last Class


Hello there : ) I’m just popping in to share a few of the cards we created in out last class.


This card has nice warm fall colors and ton’s of cut work.  Pretty patterned papers and vintage images. I added some beautiful Brown Gingham ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to accent as well as a tiny clip from Tim Holtz.

IMG_2143The mischievous little girl on this card looks like she is just about ready to sneak a taste of that pie on the shelf! This card had a very layered bow of Brown Sheer Stripe a hand sewn canvas flower, Olive Seam Binding, a crocheted flower and button.

IMG_2147This one is very traditionally styled. There are lot’s of patterns here…but they don’t look too busy since I bordered them in chocolaty brown card stock. Last but not least an inked sunflower and Brown Trim.

That’s it for now….I’ll share a few more tomorrow : ) The really big news is Bonnie is having a sale over at Really Reasonable Ribbon….so head on over and pick up your coupon code here.

I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative! : ) G

Fun vintage image…just right for a Birthday, Get Well, I Love you or an I’m thinking of you card. I did a very haphazzard stitch for a very handcrafted look. Load’s of inking too and a pretty little doily.
