I know you think these are the cards I posted yesterday but in fact they are not! They are completely different images. Okay okay the layout is the same SHEESH!
I promise to try and post something good in the next few days but right now I am busy with Naomi again getting her settled in to the nursing home again for a few weeks. She looks pretty good and sounds good. Just hope she can get her strength up enough to come home soon.
Oh anyway back to these two cards....don't forget to click on the picture and make it bigger so you can read the sentiment.
I wanted to show you some close up shots of the leaves that I used to make a border and I actually meant to do that on yesterday's card but I guess I forgot *okie can hear her friend DCDoll saying "okie you are suffering from CRS again!*. I didn't go in any certain order, I just tried to mix up the colors. I do like the leaves being out of patterned paper as I think it adds a little more interest to them.
You can also see the twine better in this picture. I really love using this medium to add to a card or layout. It is different than ribbon and it gives a more informal look at times. And another reason I love using it is because IT WAS FREE! My friend Linda, aka LGuild, gave me a whole big spool of it, and she can't have it back!
On one of the images I added a few stray leaves on top of where there were leaves on the image. While I know I can cut leaves with my Cricut you guys know how I love my punches! I was totally against them at first but I think they are great for being able to use up even the most tiniest of scraps!
Linda posted her cards she made while at Stamp Club also. I think she cheated off me because I am almost positive I had started mine before she started hers! so be sure to check her Maxine cards ---> HERE <---.
