My Monthly Card Making Day

Hi there everyone. Hope your day went well and you are enjoying the evening, that seems to go much too fast. It's already 7:20pm. Made a couple of pumpkin pies tonight had such a taste for it, just like I thought, mmmm tastes good. They won't last long, once the husband gets wind of them walking into the kitchen tonight. Not one piece will he have, but probably 2 pieces, well, at least they won't go to waste and end up in the garbage.
Yesterday was my monthly card making day. In the above picture are two of the cards. The card on the left was colored in with copic markers and the cardinal colored in and cut out and layered on the cardinal to pop up. The card on the right, little sweet magnolia girl sitting on a frame. The frame and two trees were first sanded down, the trees were embellished with speckles and the frame was left plain. Then the trees were layered on top of each other, one being popped up and the frame popped up also. The sweet magnolia girl is layered on top of the frame.
This card was stamped in blue ink, the trees smeared with glue and sprinkled with glitter. It looks like in this picture the glitter is hard to see. The picture then placed on a lovely border, blue ribbon glued on the card and the saying stamped in blue at the bottom. A blue bow added to embellish the card.
In this Santa Claus card, he is stamped on glossy card that was die cut as an ornament. We dabbed pink ink on the rosy his face up, colored in his glasses and blue eyes. He was then layered on a fancy frame and little tree branches, gems and ornament holder added. Then everything is layered on the card with ribbons and bows.
In this picture is a lovely voltive that we will be making next month. Betty designed this herself. So I will be looking forward to making this next month.
In this picture are two of the voltives one in white and one in beige. I think I will make the one in beige. Soooo in my next card making blog next month you will see the beige voltive I made along with the cards we'll be making too.

So next week on the 21st is my birthday.....wow, never thought I would get this old. I am looking forward to getting my Birthday cake at Festival. Cake Boss's "chocolate gonache cake" can hardly wait to take my first bite of that delicious cake....mmmm!!!! I think along with that cake I will make a steak and fries also. Yeah....looking forward to another year of blessings!!!!

Well, time to close here and get downstairs and work on some cards for Hospice. So you all take care and keep looking up for your redemption draws nigh. Cheers ~ Louise
