Hi All,

Happy that you are here with me today.  Seems like the weeks are just flying by.  I’m not ready to share Christmas/Holiday cards yet. Time is passing quickly enough without rushing on December!  So here, today, I’ll share more donation cards with you.  I made these in July and have already been delivered.  This set of cards is for Hallmark Health Hospice in my city.

Using my laminator and foil and adding floral stamping. These stamps are called ‘peg’ stamps which I got years ago while on a shopping field trip to PA.  I still love these stamps.

This card is a remake of a card I made several years ago.  It is always well received and such a classic style. A die cut for the swirls and a few punched flowers.

On this card I used a stamp called Simply Quilled by Clearly Besotted.  I also got to use my great $5 bargain sewing machine that I found at Savers over the summer.  The background is inked with Distress Oxide inks.

Here I combined Distress Oxide inks (new) with a very old and well-used fern stamp (old) and added a few punched butterflies.

More foiling on the diagonal with punched flowers and stamped sentiments.

Pretty paper and foiling, again, on the diagonal.  Very simple but classic.

Oval die cut, punched flower, vellum and flowers in a jar.  Simple water coloring.

This week is closing soon and I have no plans for the weekend.  How about you?  Getting out for some leaf keeping or taking in the beautiful New England autumn vistas?  Since I have faux synthetic lawn (basically some sort of plastic) the leaves just sort of blow off, out into the street and into some other lucky neighbor’s yard!!  LOVE IT!!!

Here is the front of my home with my little lawn area to the right.  Perfectly manicured and it stays a beautiful lawn green all year long!!!
