2 Cards, 2 challenges


Good Morning. I have 2 cards for 2 challenges today! First one is for Joan's Gardens.
1. Create a Thanks giving card
2. Use something Fallish such as Leaves, Pumpkins or Indian Corn (if you don't have a stamp use a leaf from your tree.
3. The color Green.

4. Some kind of swirl or vine.
Okie dokie. If anyone really wants to hurt me take away my punches and die cuts. I used Heartfelt Creations stamps HCPC 3330 Elegant Autumn Swirl, HCPC 3334 Open Falling Leaves and the matching diecut 707 Falling Leaves. The sentiment is one I got years ago with no name on it so sorry! Hope you can see the sparkle, it's really pretty in real life. sponged around the white to soften it with Tim
Holtz ink Peeled Paint.

The second card is for Peggy Cain's Create with Bubbe Verses challenge. I have had this stamp for ever! And I use it for so many occasions! It is made out of scrap paper and I punched around the edges and ran ribbon through it. I love how it turned out! Added a tiny Rose to finish it off.

Okay I gotta run, or I'm gonna be late for work! I'll catch up to you later!

Look at that crafty punch art! Love that border punch and you have outdone yourself with your cards using it! What a beautiful leaf on your first card, and the rose is a wonderful accent for the second. Thanks for sharing!

Me too, Patti! I kept stopping by, and wondering where you were! I want a lesson on how you made the large medallion, please. Do you start with a circle or a square? They are both gorgeous!
