New cards

Hello, this is a short and sweet post.   I just updated my other blog, and a new facebook page for my Longaberger business, and I am busy making cards and other things.   OK, on with business.

My first card

This is the first thank you card in a series of thank you cards I made for my father to give to the trustee women at the church I beling to and attend.   it is really simple.  no Cricut was used. general cardstock paper made into a blank card, single matted.  the wooden hearts I purchased at a thrift store for only .50.  Well, whoever gave to the thrift store, their lost, my gain.   I sponged Memento black ink on the grey cardstock.   1/4 red ribbon by offray.   One of the hearts, I colored with a copic marker, R59-Cardinal.  

Second card

I love this card, and I will have to make another one (which is one of the reasons why I take photos of my projects).
the ingredients for this card are generic blank cardstock (standard size) in a teal.   The darker blue was embossed in swirls (cuttlebug).   The red circle was cut with the plantin Schoolbook cart, and sponged in Mementos black ink.    The ribbons are bazill and a fabric lace I purchased from the thrift store, again for .50.   I am finding out that the thrift store is your friend, but you do have to watch it.   I do not know where I got the black letters from.  

Third Card..

This card is also 50% Cricut.   The pattern paper is from a discontinued Daisy D's paper exclusively made for Archiver's (I purchased it 3 years ago).  It is the Moda Collection.   The circle is cut out from the Plantin Schoolbook, the pattern paper is also discontinued, but it is by Heidi Grace.    The thanks is cut out of the wild card cartridge.    Generic cardstock for both the blank card and the mat.

Well, I have typed long enough.   so I will show you the rest tomorrow.   God bless you, and see you later.
