Welcome my crafty friends! Just a quick post of a couple of cards I did last month for a couple special ladies in my life.  October as you know is breast Cancer Awareness Month.  These 2 ladies are survivors and I wanted to recognize that so I made them each a card.  I used Susan's Garden Notes, French Pumpkin, Feverfew, Dahlia 2 Hosta and Berry Spray all from Elizabeth Craft Designs .  The stamp set was one that I purchased with part of the proceeds going to Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Hope all you ladies make sure you get those mammograms it is so important. Thanks for stopping by! Christine

Wheelbarrow of Boughs & Berries

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog! Susan's Garden Notes has a mini release consisting of 4 different dies.  Today I have chosen to use the wheelbarrow die to make a Christmas card.  Here is how I created my card. Step 1   Cut 4 Garden Notes Berry Sprays from brown cardstock.  Using Kids Choice Glue adhere 2 together to make them stronger.  Using red Nuvo Crystal Drops (autumn red used here) add berries to branches set aside to dry.  When dry add berries to back side allow to dry. Step 2   Cut 2 Garden Notes Wheelbarrow from light brown cardstock 1 with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back - adhere them together.  Using Distress Inks sponge on color all over.  Color wheel with black alcohol marker. Step 3 from green cardstock cut a bunch of Garden Notes Pine Boughs (I cut a lot as extras will always be used).  Sponge on shading using Distress Ink.  Using tweezers up stem line to hold bough pull up on needles using fingers to give dimension. Step 4   Form 6" X 6&
