Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Whew...My Last 2 Thanksgiving Cards---

Good Morning everyone. What an exciting weekend. First the Cutting Cafe Give Away then the posting for my Blog Candy and most important...I am DONE with my Thanksgiving cards! They are all signed and sealed just waiting to be taken to the post office! Since I don't finish the cards inside until I'm ready to send them, this was quite a chore. I really ought to take a lesson from my good blogger friend Lillie, when she makes a card, she completes it, inside and out! I'll probably never be that disciplined or organized though. This 1st one is for my middle granddaughter, Chloe. It is just like the card I made for my oldest granddaughter last week. I usually do them the same, so there are no hurt feelings and they can't say that I have a favorite. You know how little girls are! The only difference is the colors and instead of the female turkey, I used the male turkey image for this one---
Here is the recipe in case you missed it---
Card Size: A2
Stamps/Image: Pilgrim Clip Art
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots, Babyface Alphabet Die (tag)
Nestabilities: Oval/Scallop, Circle
Punches: EK Arrow Border
Font: Computer Generated-Peggy Font
Accessories: Ribbon, Foam Pop Dots (lots and lots of pop dots)

This next one is for my Father in law. We always send him 2, one serious one and one just for fun--- Here is the recipe---
Card Size: A2
Stamps/Image: Pilgrim Clip Art
Nestibilities: Oval/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Distressed Spripe Embossing Folder
Font: Computer Generated-Cocktail
Accessories: Ribbon, Brads, Eyelet, Craft Yarn, Foam Pop Dots

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by...Enjoy your day!

How pretty! Love the sentiment on that second one, Kelly! Your colors are so vibrant; very pleasing to the eye. I'm right there with ya on the inside of the cards. That's an issue I've been working on. I'd love to know how you make those pretty bows!

Hi both of the cards. As always your attention to detail is fantastic. Your background paper on the card for your fil is so interesting, really looks great.

Kelly, my friend these are just the cutest(is that a word?)LOL, I just love those adorable images you find, and they are so well put together and coordinated. I know your DGD is going to love them. Thanks for the mention on finishing the cards inside. I find it easier to complete it when creating it. Tip, I don't always put the sentiment in, only if I am sure what it will be used for.
Love, love your creations my friend!

Hugz, xx
