More Cards In Fall Colors

Hi there everyone. How are your days going? It was a beautiful day here today....I love these fall days, wish they could last forever. Thought I would get a blog done this week, as I will be busy cleaning house the next few days. Family from Chicago are coming for a visit....so you know how that goes....lots of dusting and cleaning before they come. I have been so lax in my cleaning lately....oh well, what gets done will get done. Just hope I can get those dishes out of the sink and keep them out for at least a day or two...hahahaha!!
Been working on some more cards. Mostly for Hospice, as the next meeting will be 11/7, I need lots of Birthday and Thinking of you Fall and Thanksgiving cards. Sooooo, a few cards every night will build a good supply. I usually like to have at least 50-75 cards in the stash.

So the top card, Birthday Blessings will be one of the cards included in that stash. Bought some turquoise ribbon today, so I will use that instead of the white. I saw this idea on the Internet, on a blog, but can't remember where. Liked it so much, but did not have the stamp. Hunted high and low and finally found it at JoAnn's. This card does not look exactly like the card I saw, but it's pretty close.
In the above pic, this is one of my new embossing folders, I just dabbed ink on the leaves to give it that fall effect. I may use some orange ribbon instead of the white for the next few cards.
I invested in some "Stampin Up" stamps. Been having lots of fun working with them. In the above picture is one set. I have seen many, many ideas using these stamps, so I am looking forward to making lots of cards. I like the idea of drawing free-hand, the frame around the card, really adds to the card.
Now in this above picture is my own idea, just playing around with the stamps, this is what I came up with. Colorful and fun to do.  I will be adding these cards to my Etsy store in the next week or so. As soon as I get more cards made, I will add them to this blog.

Have a great rest of the week and keep looking up.
Cheers ~ Louise

Oh Louise, I love all of those cards. The orange and brown is really perfect for this season and I love what you did with the embossing folder! Have a wonderful time with your company.

I'm sure your company doesn't care a bit if there's dust. Just remember they are there to see you!!!

Thank you Brenda. I hope to have a good time. We usually go out to eat and then come to our house for dessert. They only come for a day....so there's not a lot of time to do anything special.

Thanks Patricia. I will try to remember that. But I always felt the house had to be clean and spotless with their visit. Hard to break that habit....:)
