Feel Better and Get well, I have two cards going out in the mail to cheer on my Dad who has a cold, and my best scrapping bud who injured herself while on vacation. I went for a fallish feeling on both cards.  

You know those MAN cards are so darned tough to make, but I am sure my Dad will appreciate the fall leaves.

I am sure my friend will love the sunflowers.  

My Dad's card is up first. While in California I stopped by Stamp Fever and ordered a few Lawn Fawn stamps, I had hoped to pick them up, but the store was out of stock. Linda kindly offered to mail them to me in Maryland, and they arrived last week.  I took them out for a spin!

Supplies for this card are: Stamps-Paper Smooches, Lawn Fawn (x2); Ink-Versafine, Memento; Markers-Copic Y17,yr04. yr23.yg63, g 24, yg03, yr24, yr07, r24, Memento-Rich Cocoa; Papers-Neenah, Recollections; Unknown twine bit

My second card is also made from Lawn Fawn stamps, with matching dies. I die cut the flowers after coloring them.  The pot and leaves are stamped on the panel. Since this is going in the mail, I put strips of yellow cardstock framing the image panel in stead of matting it. I have one sunflower popped on a thin 1/16 inch foam square. This should easily mail without extra postage or padding. Supplies used are Stamps- Lawn Fawn; Ink-Versafine, Memento; Markers-Copic Y17, y08, y13, yr23, yr27, e33, e57, Zig- Wink of Stella Clear; Papers-Neenah, Recollections; Embossing folder Sizzix.

Thanks for stopping by!
