Thanksgiving cards for family

Here are a few cards I made for my hubbys family for Thanksgiving. We head there tomorrow, so thought I would make the 'married' couples a card. I think my fav is the acorn card...i like acorns, they are so cute! The tree card was made by embossing the trees and then i chalked the background and watercolor penciled the shadow at the base of the tree. The mouse card was colored with watercolored pencils as well and blended and embossing the water and the features of the mouse. The acorn card was colored with watercolor pencils and blended. and I embossed the acorns at the base.
I think they will like them....!Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Be back on Friday night! then I will have to get busy busy on a listing or two! I HOPE!

My Hero Album!

sold!!!!! I received this paper from a good friend of mine and I decided that I would make a vintage MY HERO album with it....I love the old ads etc in this album. My son did a report a few years back on Propaganda, (hope I spelled that right) and we had fun looking at the vintage ads from that era!
I used vellum in this album to give it even more of an aged feel. There are lots of places to put pictures and big tags for journaling, pockets for added pictures and treasures! The first inside page has a vellum pocket to add what ever you feel you want in there!
I will be listing this album on Sunday as well!! Thanks for stopping by!

File Folder Album

Here is a file folder album I made for my mother and father in law for Thanksgiving! I am going to have everyone in the family write in it, on what Mom and Dad mean to them. I thought it would be a nice gift to them. They are a very loving giving couple. Mom is taking on a houseful for Thanksgiving, My hubbys sister and husband have 5 is married. Shane and I have 4 kids, but only 3 of them will make it this time...and Then there is Shane's brother Tim. Plus I believe that Shane's sisters family is bringing and extra guest. So that is alot of work for my mother in law! She also is taking care of dad who has parkinsons. She is totally devoted to her family and dad. I being taken away from my birth mother at age 5 never really got to experience what its like to have a mother like that. To be that devoted and loving, is something I can only strive to be! She is amazing. And dad is a kind and gentle soul, totally loved by all who knew him. So it was an honor to make this for them!

Tuesday Listing

SOLD!!!! Well I had 5 albums listed the past week and i was thinking I would have a little leeway on some albums to run over into this week...BUT what a Blessing! They all sold!! whooo hooo! SO I holed up in my craft room today, made the family eat leftovers and forgot about the ironing...and made this album to list on tuesday!
This is a Friends album, with lots of places for pictures! I love the color combo with a varity of different brands of paper . I also relisted my album/tin combo.

Get Well Card....

I made this card or my sweet Friend Vicky's daughter who will be having surgery. I will get it off in the mail in the next few days. This is one of the stamped images I recieved from another sweet friend that I colored with watercolor pencils and then I used a versa mark pen to go around the balloons and then I added clear embossing powder to them to make them more 3d. I also added clear to the bunnys eye! All my paper is usually scraps from my paper bag albums! So it is a good way to make good use of all my scraps! I started out making one card and hated it so then moved on to this one! I like how it turned out, I hope Brittany will be pleased with it!
