Thinking of You


I needed a thinking of you card so instead of only making one, I decided to make two. It is so easy just to cut enough for two rather than sitting down to make another card entirely.  I am trying to talk my husband into moving all of my stamping stuff today, but we will see. He already told me he doesn't "really" want to do that, but I think we could be quick. Especially since Rhys is taking his morning nap and the older kids can watch Rowan.
  With summer on its way out and fall on its way in, I decided to use some early autumn colors.  I really love light blue and orange paired together.  I used this "Trendy Trees" set from PTI for my focal image. I have only used it once, but I really like using it.  I also used Jen's August SFYTT. Isn't it great? She always does such a good job. One of the things I miss the most is being part of her sketch team. Maybe someday.........
I had a package of cork that was handy and I thought it would work well with the theme of the card. I liked it as the background for the tree. I used a sentiment from the PTI set "Autumn Abundance" which is another one of my favorites.
I have actually been quite busy the last month or so working on some fun sewing projects. They have been for baby showers, but I didn't have enough time to get everything photographed. That is always such a bummer when you work so hard on something but then don't get a chance to get a good picture of it. I didn't really think the mother's to be would be keen on me asking if i could come over and take pictures of their stuff! LOL! Anyway, I had fun and I have been trying to be creative. Thanks for fluttering by!

Hi Kelly
It was so nice to see a post from you as I have missed your lovely cards so much. Tell your hubby there is a Nanna in Australia who needs your paper things moved to where you can work more often. Lol. You have such a good eye for matching colours.
