Thank You Fall Color Card



Hiya Everyone!! Just a quicky card I made. . .I have butt loads of Fall designer papers and I really need to start using them. I sometimes wonder what is wrong with me. I have a paper fetish it seems. . . .I can't resist buying designer papers whether I need them or not.

I don't know. . .they just look so pretty. I can't help myself. Unfortunately, I have a lifetime worth of papers and I probably will never use them all.

Okay. . .this is going to sound a bit lame but I had told my husband and kids . . .jokingly. . .that if something ever happens to me, I need them to sell all my craft stuff on Ebay so they can get some money to pay for their college tuition or down payment on their cars. LOL!!


I told them that in no uncertain terms that they sell them at a garage sale or throw them away; otherwise, I'll come and haunt them if they do. Too funny.


Anyway, nothing much to this card so I won't talk about it.


Card Details:


Paper: SU Tangerie Tango, Deja View designer paper, Bazzil cardstock, DCWV designer paper
Accessories: Pebbles Inc. Ribbon, Prima Flowers, JoAnn brads

Georgeous card! I am just like you when it comes to paper! I'm not kidding when I say I have over 4,000 sheets! I'm addicted to paper. I laughed at your "if something ever happens to me" comment! Very funny! Best, Curt

I, too, am a paper-a-holic. I am *trying* to be better about it but man there's just so many pretty ones out there.
Great card. I especially like how you added the flowers to the scallops!

Thanks Maria.. You're lucky you're already an RN, I myself have to go through that then become a NP. I wish I had thought about it earlier rather than going through the whole levels.. So LVN is what I am right now and I really want to go for my RN but finance in Cali is too hard to keep up...
You're short story is too funny. I wish I had a lifetime supply of paper or even everything craft supply. How do I make those beautiful ribbons? I don't quite know how to make a nice ribbon so I always just do the tie. hahah.
Happy Wednesday...
Hugs,
Jackielou

Very pretty fall card. I too am trying to use my stash of papers before I buy more.

I hafta know....how did you make the big scallops to put the flowers on? That is just a stroke of genius! I hear you about the selling of the stuff. (We have small fortunes invested...throw it away!????! Can you imagine? I'm cringing over here! :o) P.S. Has anyone told you lately that you make THE cutest bows? You DO! heehee
