Banner Birthday

The holiday season may be upon us, but we can't forget those who have birthdays in November and December!

My wonderful mother-in-law turned 70 last week, and wow, she looks amazing for 70. I don't think I've met anyone quite like her - her zest for life and positive outlook is so refreshing.

Here's the card I created for her; she just loves handmade cards, and well I just love crafting them. I found the sketch here and adapted it with our Georgie paper collection. Being a sucker for banners, I have a Pinterest board created just for them, haha! The sentiment tag was cut at 4" with our Cricut Artiste cartridge. Love me some Cricut!

Autumn floral cards

Love me some gorgeous autumn cards! I'm especially a sucker for cards that have a floral theme to them, because they are so versatile and can be used for so much.

So, even though we are October now with a new Stamp of the Month, I am still in love with September's Paper Garden. I came across Denise's lovely card here using this stamp, and thought I would give it a whirl with these 5x5 sized cards.

Super happy with how it turned out, and I am LOVING our new colors: Eggplant, Fern, Poppy and Pomegranate. Yum. Good enough to eat!
