Christmas in September

I started making Christmas Cards in late August.  I like to sit in the evening and make cards as my relaxation while I watch TV. And Christmas cards are my favorite type to make. I got started last year around this time with Card A Day Blog when the challenges were for Christmas cards and it's that time of year again :-D.  This is  Card A Day Blog's first Christmas Card challenge.  I made this card with scrap strips of Christmas paper.  I added a tree charm from ACharmingPlace, which I decorated with white mini brads.  Hope you like.

Happy BOOthday!

I made this Birthday Card for a friend's daughter whose birthday is October 31 :).  I'm using it for one of A Card a Day Blog's challenges.  I combined 3 KNK files to make it.  The Happy ghost is from Visual Designs by Chris (CD00592).   The "Happy" is I Scrap Designs Happy Halloween Web Card (IR00249) and the "BOO!" belongs to Sam and Hailey Design's Itty Bitty Halloween Creeps (JB00195) file. All these can be found at VisualDesignsbyChris.   I did the "thday" piece myself.   Thanks for looking!

Happy Thanksgiving

Here's another card for the Card a Day Blog challenge.  It's a Canadian Thanksgiving card.  I used a cuddlebug embossing folder for the background of pumpkin and vines.  I cut the leaves using Sam and Hailey Designs Itty Bitty Autumn Leaves file (JB00219) available at VisualDesignsbyChris. and SU!  "Happy Thanksgiving" stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes set.

I'm hoping to get back into the swing of particpating in A Card a Day Blog card challenges.  Last week was Autumn and I'm just getting around to it :).  I made these two cards Tuesday, photographed them yesterday and put them in the mail today - YAY.  I love it when I use them soon after making them.

The pumpkins on the cards have a story and here it is.  I took them off a page layout I got either in a swap or a class.  I had not used the layout yet.  In June 2005 we were having our roof replaced and a huge thunderstorm blew in ... can you guess what happened?  It rained inside our house - only part of it thankfully.  Unfortunately, my craft room was one of the rooms that had the worse damage.  The pumpkin layout got wet on top.  The pumpkins were along the bottom so I saved them and finally used them this week - LOL.  So I know they are at least 7 years old and probably older.  Yes, I am a confessed scrapbook supply hoarder - bbahahaha.  The butterfly Hi! is a 1997 Stampin Up! stamp.

Thanks for looking!
