Another Vintage Santa

I posted some cards with this vintage Santa a few months ago.  I am so glad that I found him at Hobby Lobby because I have been looking for him for awhile.  Only 25 days until Christmas and that counts today and Christmas Day.

Happy Thanksgiving

This card has some unusual Thanksgiving colors.  You may not be able to tell from the picture but the dotted designer paper is Wisteria Wonder which is a shade of purple.  I know, that sounds so yucky and  Halloweenish.  The purple is muted and really has a gray look to it so it is toned down quite a bit.  Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Comfort Cafe Designer Paper

This is one of the Thanksgiving cards I had my group make this month.  I have a lot of designer paper and they are helping me use it.  I am not buying anymore until I put a large dent in the rack that holds all of it that I have.  There still is quite a bit to use.

Happy Birthday Dad

Today would have been my dad's birthday.  He and I were both born on the 22nd of a month, just different months and years of course.  It is hard to believe that he has been gone 11 years.  I miss him and my mom and think of them all the time.

Tropical Glass Creation

This picture does not do this piece justice.  I wanted a picture of it but didn't have my camera.  So I took the picture with my phone.  It is hard to get a good picture of glass and using the phone didn't make it any easier.  The diameter of this piece is probably close to 3 feet. I need to measure it sometime and see how close my guess is.

Give Thanks

The name of this Stampin' Up! set is For All Things.  It has several stamps and is very versatile.  I plan to use the splotch stamp and the smaller leaves for other occasions not just fall cards.

A Second Piece of Pie

Here is another punch art pumpkin that I made.  If you don't know why the title of the post is pie, look back to Nov 7  where I explain.  I do miss my mom and her cooking.  I never was too interested in learning how to cook like she did.  She did give her recipes to my DH and he is a good cook.

Veteran's Day

One of the things I am thankful for is our military.  Thank you to all of the veterans past and present for serving our country.  Our lives would be much different if we did not have them to preserve our freedom.

Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

When my brothers and I were young, the thing they liked the best about Thanksgiving was my mom made pies, crust too.  She only made pumpkin ice cream pie once a year, Thanksgiving.  She used vanilla ice cream and added canned pumpkin and spices.  Me I preferred cherry or coconut cream pie.

Fireman's Hat

Try to focus on the center clear glass on this piece to see the fire hat.  The hat is all beveled glass.  The background glass is red, white, and blue  spirit glass.  To be honest, I do not like spirit glass and it is more expensive than what he usually uses.  Having said that, this sheet of glass was perfect for the fire hat.  I just wish it showed up better in the picture.

Falling Leaves

It is hard to believe it is November already and time to post Thanksgiving cards.  I use a lot of leaves on my cards this time of year even though most of our trees keep their leaves until February.  To make this card I carefully placed the white paper on the die and used the negative of what was cut.  I then cut a leaf using Cajun Craze cardstock and put some dotted texture on it.
