Thoughtful Branches

This is a card I made for a very good friend and neighbor.  She has been leading our Bible Study group for quite some time, and recently turned it over to someone else.  We wanted to thank her for all she has done for us by giving so generously of her time and energy.

This card uses the Thoughtful Branches Bundle, which was available for a limited time only.  If you are interested in this bundle, it is currently still available, but once supplies are exhausted, it’s gone forever!

Instead of using a regular half-size sheet of cardstock for this card, I used a piece measuring 5 1/2 X 12.  I scored the 12″ length at 4 1/4, and again at 8 3/8.  This gave me an extra piece to fold inside the card.  Because this card was from a group, that extra piece gave us plenty of room to write our little notes.

Catching Fireflies

The nights are getting cooler, but we’re still seeing a few fireflies in our neck of the woods.  I remember catching them when I was much younger, and keeping them in a jar for a while before releasing them.

I just love the Jar of Love Bundle, and this card brings back memories of those days.  It’s so easy to add the light by just using a sponge dauber.

Seaside Shore

I love the Seaside Shore stamp set, and you’ll be seeing a lot of it here on my blog.  This is another card I made for the Mediterranean Achievers Card Swap.

I pulled my color scheme from the coordinating By The Shore Designer Series Paper pack, and the front layer is a stamped piece from this paper pack.
