Thanksgiving cards

These are a couple of cards I made for my card lady. She wanted some Thanksgiving cards. The first one uses two of my all-time favorite SU sets (both retired of course), Lovely Leaves and French Script. I used More Mustard, Elegant Eggplant, and Ruby Red ink, Confetti Cream and Elegant Eggplant CS. Ribbon is Cherry Cobbler seam binding, and the brad is SU. Sent. is from PTI's Fall Elegance set.
This next card I just decided to let the DP do the talking. It's old SU. The sent. is from PTI's Fall Elegance set and is embossed in copper. The label is PTI's new Christmas Label die. I really like it.
I don't usually make Thanksgiving cards, although I do like the idea. How about you? For the month of October I am challenging myself to post a Halloween project every day! And that will be quite a challenge for ME! Wish me luck!

Baby cards for the shelter

Some of y'all may know my friend Chris (you can visit her awesome blog HERE). She sells cards that she makes and donates the money to her local animal shelter. Recently she was in need of some baby cards, so I decided to make a few. Here they are: Stamps (Bitty Baby Blessings), buttons and ribbon are by PTI; CS, ink, and DP are Stampin' Up!
This second card uses a Mojo Monday sketch.

I forget where this sketch is from--it may be Mojo Monday. Oh, and the DP and CS on this one are PTI. Three measly cards--sorry Chris, the kids' schedules are kicking my behind this year! Anyway, I hope they help a wee bit. Thanks for stopping by today!
