Pleasant Pheasants For John

John and I celebrated our 23rd Anniversary on September 15th! We went out for supper at Texas Roadhouse, but otherwise didn't do anything special. He bought me roses, though!

And I made him a card:

Generated by SUDSOL, Free Trial at

Colors: Basic Black, Bronze, Cajun Craze, Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White

To layer my greeting, I punched it out with the Duet Banner Punch, then punched two with Basic Black. I trimmed the bottom flags for the top one and the top flags for the bottom one, then layered them so just a border of the black shows around the Call Me Clover piece.

Paper Pumpkin August 2017 Giftable Greetings Part 2

After making the eight cards in the August 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit "Giftable Greetings", I made nine more cards with the leftover pieces! 

I made four sympathy cards, two peach (I didn't have any Peekaboo Peach card stock left so I used the new In Color Grapefruit Grove) and 2 Old Olive:

Then I made four thanks cards with Pool Party as the base. I had one white oval left, so I used a greeting from All Things Thanks and a Calypso Coral card base. 

Here's all nine cards together:

This was a fun kit! Why did I wait so long to make it?

My individual cards- I did two of each greeting. The Thanks and Congrats were printed on the ovals:

The Sympathy greeting was a stamp included with the kit:

This Thinking of You greeting is from the new Rooted In Nature Stamp Set (Annual Catalog p. 143):

I shared the September 2017 Kit "Layered Leaves" last November (click HERE and HERE to both posts). I had a lot of fun with that kit and made a lot of cards!
