Camper Card

 I have had a chemo angel assignment for a year now - he is a teen boy - and Make a Wish got him a camper so he could go hunting with his dad.  I made him a card to go with his package which was a pair of warm hunting socks and Butterfinger candy bars (his favorites).  This is the card I made to include in his box. 

All stamps/supplies from StampinUP.  I think he will like his goodie box.  Next week I will send a box  of goodies to make S/mores - .

Season of Thanks

 Where oh where does the time go - being retired I should have more time but that is not the way it works.  But I did get some time to work on a few fall cards over the weekend.  

Both of these cards used "retired" SU sets - but...I usually keep most of my stamps even if they are retired or non longer available.  I love the first card with the variety of colors on the plaid DP.  On my second card I used two different leaf dies - no stamping except for the sentiment.  I matched the leaf colors with the fill in under the leaves and then a small twine bow.  Easy easy.  

I send out a lot of fall/Thanksgiving cards so I think I finally have enough for this year.  I love making fall cards - and our leaves in the woods behind our house are turning such pretty colors. 

 We live on top of a hill - and coming up the road into our subdivision is so pretty right now.  Love what Mother Nature does this time of the year.  What a beautiful picture she paints.

New Die

 I have been seeing cards using this die Christmas Bubble Spotty Die all over Pinterest and FB.  Well I really "needed" to add this to my collection and what fun I have had playing with my new die.  

All three of these cards were 5 minute cards - using the die then a punch.  My favorite is the Snowflake Card - using an Amuse Die that I kept from long ago.  I love that you can use this die with both solid as well as pattern paper as in the Boo Cat.  I also made a fall one using a leaf die but I have already sent that one to a friend without taking a picture.  If you need a card in a hurry this is the die.
