More cards for the nursing home. We are going to pass them out on the 16th, so just a few more days to add to the total. The die is  'horizontal stitched cover up' from My Favorite things. What a versatile die! As you can see, I used the die with both the larger or smaller window at the top. I don't think it matters. The top card is a shaker card with sequins at the bottom and stars at the top!
 
This one is patterned paper and a Penny Black Peony stamp that I colored with copics and fussy cut. Those are hearts in the lower part of the card.  
Thanks for looking!

First of all since it is December 7th, let me just take a moment to say 'Thank You' to all of our Armed forces. Thanks to the coast guard and law enforcement, all of you who work everyday trying to keep the American people safe.
 I won't ruin this 'thank you" with what I am really thinking. Oh, there I let it out of my mouth.... I am sorry that you have to work with a corrupt administration. All we can do is pray. And oh, here I go again... Some people won't let us do that!

Let's play with some pink! Just a nice change. These are cards for the churches. I liked some of the ideas and re-made them. I will put up the original source. Hope it feels like spring!
