Green and Gold Sympathy Card

Hey, how was your weekend? Can you believe it is MONDAY again??

My weekend was a mixed bag – I was invited to go see the Broadway Tour of CATS (#5 if you are counting!) by a cousin who had never seen it, which was great. But, I’m not feeling great (trying to figure out if it is a chiropractor visit or primary care visit!), and my desktop computer hard drive is ailing (I will be scrambling to move things the next few days).

Another card to add to the collection for my mother-in-law.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, My Favorite Things, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stardream Metallics Gold, inks – Gina K. Designs Jelly Bean Green, VersaMark, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Gold.

Birds and Florals Get Well Card

Last weekend, hubby went to visit his parents. He ran some errands for his mother, and she had requested that he purchase some greeting cards for her to have at the house. Hubby does not like shopping for cards, so he came back from the store without them. “Oh, Kathy can make them for you.” Which is fine and dandy, but I make cards that are blank inside. Now I have to come up with inside sentiments for the cards she requested (card sentiments are so personal to me – I dislike trying to pick for cards that other people will send). Not an insurmountable task, but one I dread. It will all work out…but I will procrastinate!

Supplies:  Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Crate Paper Good Vibes, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold, Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Gold Detail.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pear Pizzazz, inks – Gina K. Designs Jelly Bean Green, Red Hot, Lawn Fawn Deep Sea, Stampin’ Up!

Trio of Tall Money Holding Cards

These were very last minute!

I started out thinking I would make a different size, and create my own envelopes. Alas, I did not have time to do that, I found some A10 envelopes (that were not security interior envelopes!) in my stash, and made the cards 3.75 x 9.25 inches. I glued a 4 inch pocket to the bottom of the interior to keep the money in place.

I probably will not post between now and the new year. Just too much going on.

Happy Holidays!  Merry Christmas!  Happy New Year!  May 2020 be full of love & light!

Kathy
