Anniversary Card...

I adore the shabby, vintage style handmade cards.  I made this card for my Mother.
She and my Dad would've been married 49 years tomorrow.  


I purchased the paper and tag used on this card as a downloadable printable file 
from Iralamijashop on Etsy.  I love her style and she creates the most beautiful papers
and embellishments.  I also love that I can print them over and over and over, sigh.
The bird sticker is from Hobby Lobby.

Flying Dachshunds & Kittens...

I just love these cards! I was browsing cards at Barnes and Noble, like,
a year ago, and came across a similar card. I thought it was neat because
the kitten was dangling on a string attached to a balloon. I also love the
idea of a card with motion, the kitten and dachshund swinging from
the balloon.  I finally got around to making my version since we've got three 
little girls with birthdays coming up. 
I'm sure my grandgirls will love these cards!



And while I was having so much FUN making these cards, I made a special card for my
daughter.  She's away at college and won't be home for Thankgiving :(. The dachshund 
on these cards is actually inspired by our little dog, Rexy. My daughter misses her so much.
I think she will be thrilled to get this card featuring her. It's like she's making a balloon
trip just to see her, lol.

I love to decorate my topiary tree for all of the holidays, which you've probably noticed, hee hee. I try to add a new ornament every year. This year it's a hedgehog. He's really a Christmas ornament from Pier1 but I think he fits into my Thanksgiving tree pretty well. I will probably carry him over to Christmas as well.
