I was going to post this yesterday but we were without cable for most of the day and until sometime in the middle of the night. That meant no phones, no TV, and no computer for hours and hours!
In the spirit of the situation, I went up to the attic and got into the old cedar chest from wagon train days lovingly packed by generations of great and grand mothers. I never tire of that amazing smell as I knelt down and creaked open the lid. I gingerly removed the old shawl, the candles, and the boars hair slippers lined in flannel. Finally, I reached down for the infamous and steamy memoirs of my cousin Elsbeth Mattigrew.
Okay, I didn't do any of those things, but without the usual self-inflicted bombardment of all things cable, I did get creative. I made a FOURfer, for cryin' out loud!
One of my favorite autumn stamp sets is "Fall" by Technique Tuesday, most notably the very word AUTUMN, which germinated a lot of these cards.
Next, I wanted to use the very last two sheets of cousin Elsbeth's ancient sunflower printed vellum.
With the second sheet of vellum, I made this autumn birthday card:
Last, but not least, I made a simple one-layer card specifically intended for a few challenges.
- Less Is More (Colour Challenge): Fire.
- One-Layer Simplicity Challenge: A Multitude of Gratitude.
- Share Handmade Kindness: Create a project and give it to family or friends.
- Share Joy Challenge: Autumn Inspiration Photo. This is going to a couple we have been friends with for almost forty years.
Oh, my gosh, stop it! I can hear you laughing all the way over here! Okay, okay, it has ended up costing me lots more money, but you can't put a price on the satisfaction of sending out a card that you made with your own two hands. Well, and maybe a couple of paws.
He wants me to thank you again for all your prayers, cards, and well wishes!
