A Bushel and A Peck

     Hello again!  I hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving weekend!  We had a good time at my brother's.  We live in the same city so no traveling involved.  Of course this does cut into leftovers.
     I realize I should be showing Christmas cards but I haven't started them yet.  I have for you today another Harvest Mouse from MFT.
Linda Carson, MFT

        I used MFT's Blueprints dies number 27 .  This afternoon I took advantage of MFT's Black Friday sale!  It was 30% off.  They just don't have discounts like that during the year. 
     I'm on Black Friday sale overload with all these stamp companies!!  They're giving me a headache trying to keep them all straight!
     Hope you grabbed some bargains.  Remember tomorrow is Cyber Monday.......just saving Santa the trouble!!
     Have a great week!

I Pick You

     Hello again!  I hope your preparations for Thanksgiving are going well!  Hard to believe it's only a couple days away. 
     Today's card features the Harvest Mouse from MFT.  I think this set is cute.  You'll be seeing it again!
Linda Carson, MFT

      All of the dies used are from MFT.  I airbrushed the sky. 
     That's it for me today!  Very short and sweet!  Have a wonderful day!

With Sympathy

    Hi friends!  I've been stamping but haven't been blogging!  Shame on me!  So let's try again.  This card was made for a friend who recently lost her husband. 
     All of the dies are from My Favorite Things.  I won the Stitched Flowers die and love their versatility!   Here is the link to the with sympathy die. 
     Thanks for coming by!  Have a beautiful week!

Bear Hugs

     Hello friends!  Looks like it's been awhile!  Today's card is Hugs from Concord and 9th.  I think it's a hoot!
Linda Carson
     The bear was colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers on water colored paper.  It's the first time I've used them.  I think I'm hooked.  I may need a different brand of paper though. 
     The hills are dies from MFT.  As you can see I ran them through an embossing folder.  I'm not sure who made the clouds.  The sky was airbrushed. 
      Thanks for stopping by!  Considered yourself hugged!!

I've Become My Mother

     Welcome!  I may have shown this image before but I can't locate it.  I may have forgotten to label it at the time.   
     It's such a hoot though and who doesn't need a smile these days!
Linda Carson, ARt Impressions
     This card has been my most requested to make!  I bet I've sold over 20 of these!  Just last month I had a request for 8!  It wasn't that bad.  I made other cards in-between.  I also had all the measurements written down and it went fast.
Linda Carson, Art Impressions
      You have to admit it's a great way to use up some scraps!  The image is Art Impressions.  Sentiment is my own.  I'm becoming more like my Mother day by day!!  Just ask my husband!!
     Enjoy your weekend!

Home Sweet Home

     Hi friends!  Today's card features not a bit of stamping.  It's all die cutting except for the brick stencil. 
Linda Carson, ODBD
     The majority of this well built home is thanks to Our Daily Bread Designs.  The exception is the black cat which is Memory Box and the grass die from Taylored Expressions.
     I sponged the brick stencil from MFT with Fire Brick Distressed ink.  Maybe next time I should add some textured paste.
     Thanks for visiting my make believe home.  Come back again soon....I'll leave the light on for you!!

A Friend Loves

     Welcome all!  If this card looks a bit familiar it's because I made one similar just two posts down.  I updated that photo by the way.  The card looks better.
     Moving on.  I really wanted to see what it would look like with a red/white color combo.
Linda Carson, ODBD


     This time I used every petal in the Pretty Posies die set for one main flower.  I think this makes the scroll work on the Majestic Medallion shine.  Once again I used the Stick It adhesive on the medallion die.  Great stuff!!
     The verse is from the Zinnia set.  Papers are Bazzill Basics.
     Sure do appreciate your visits and comments!  Until next time have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!
