I’m back, yay! :)

I have been gone so long, and I’m so sorry! 😦  Don’t ever get “old”, because everything takes longer to heal if you break it! 😦

I had 8 fractures in my broken arm and it was not fun or pretty!  But here I am, mostly recovered and ready to share more cards with you! 🙂  So let’s not waste another minute and get to some cards! 🙂

I still have two fingers on my right hand that will not work properly, but I’ve adapted 🙂  I’ve been making simple cards for about a month and have some to share with you 🙂

Today I’m showing you ways to use paper and images for Fall “themed” cards.  Here are two cards showing Fall “themed” cards for Birthdays.  On the right, I used a pumpkin embossing folder with some Fall paper and a digital image that I bought on Esty.  I added the words to the pumpkin digitally.  On the left, I used some Fall paper and an image that I also bought on Esty, plus a gold sentiment sticker.

Here I used two more digital images from Esty, Fall colored papers, and on the left a black Hello sentiment sticker, on the right, the image came with the Hello sentiment.

Here I used a 6×6 Fall paper pack from Carta Bella, called Fall Market.  I don’t like how the colors turned out in my photos 😦  The cards are actually very bright and colorful.

In case you forgot, or you’re new here, I send cards to Children’s Hospitals as a volunteer for Send A Smile 4 Kids.  I also, separately, send cards to a senior center in honor of my mother.  Please take a few minutes and check out the SAS4Kids blog and see how you can be a donor too! 🙂

Now I have some beautiful cards from one of my card donors, Lee Mae Elkins 🙂

I think all of Lee Mae’s cards “speak” for themselves, lots of sentiments, all with Fall themes.  Thank you so much Lee Mae for sharing your cards and talents with our kids! 🙂

You can do the same thing with Winter “themed” cards, I hope to show you some very soon! 🙂

Thank you for coming by, I am so thankful for your interest! 🙂  I hope you can come by again! 🙂  I am so happy and thankful to be back to my blog and sharing what I love! 🙂
