I made this card to honor Carolyn King's grandmother and to participate in the "Heart to Heart" card drive. I used Theresa's Farm Life set, colored with Copics. I am sending this card to the nursing home that took care of my Dad. Although my father was a stroke victim, he was on the same floor as the Alzheimer unit. There were so many people that were so patient with my Dad, and I wanted to thank them.

After I completed my other card, another memory just kept coming to mind. I decided to make a card using that memory as my inspiration. For many years, Fall just wasn't Fall unless we took my son and daughter to the Apple Orchard. It always seemed to be a sunny, crisp day with hours to spare. They loved eating all they could, as we filled our bushel baskets. Trying to keep them off the ladders in the orchard was an exercise in futility.
We bought lots and lots of apples. I used to bake a… Continue

Gina's challenge this time around is to make a card that reflects our favorite Autumn memory. When my children were young, there was a really awesome Pumpkin Farm to visit.
This place is called Goebbert's and it has been there for years. Their lovely property is a destination field trip for almost all of the surrounding schools. There is a rather unique feature, which I decided to try and duplicate on my card. I can't wait to send this card to my daughter and hope that she remembers the… Continue

Here is my card for the Lean on Me blog hop. Using a base of chocolate PL card stock, I made the dp using a piece of Asparagus cs and randomly bleached using a piece of bleach soaked paper toweling. I then sponged with Distress inks, after the bleach dried. After cutting out my ovals with my Cuttlebug, I stamped my Lean on Me Flower on the bleach paper towel, and then onto the cranberry tart cs. I added a brown ribbon and bow, with a little copper bling in the middle.… Continue
