I know I've posted a card or two...maybe three this week. But, my one of my sweet daughters-in-law is having a birthday early next week and I just had to get a card made. I wanted to make her a hinged filigree card. If it appears some of the holes aren't punch from the die, they are. It just seems that way on a few because of the back section.
This may be my last card this week as hubby is off work tomorrow and we are going to be very busy.I hate to tell you what we are going to be doing. We are putting up the Christmas tree. Please don't think I'm crazy. I put it up the week before Halloween last year because of all the house remodeling and knew that was the only time to get it done. Well, we are very busy this year between going to weekend college football games and visiting children and little munchkins...so up it goes. We don't want to get into a bind and kill ourselves getting it up. It won't get turned on until after Thanksgiving because that is a very important holiday for us. We have so much to be thankful for so I try not to make those holiday clash. Well, the munchkins will be here next weekend so we'll probably have to turn it on for them But, no one else will see it. And, no other Christmas decorations will go up.
On to my card...about time, huh? :-) My ribbon was made using the tutorial by my blogging friend, Colleen Dietrich. She has a wonderful tutorial at Inspired by Stamping. It is for the WHW #122 challenge. It is to make a Colleen Bow. I tried but really didn't have the seam binding she recommended in the right color. I went with more of a twill which made it more difficult. I do love her bows.
I'm also uploading my card to the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery Contest for November.
I'll enter my card into the Twisted Tuesday challenges which are free this week....anything goes!
My stamp is Inspired by Stamping/Graceful Hydrangea and I colored it to look like my hydrangeas look now in the Fall season. I do love a bouquet from them for the season, though, after they turn. The sentiment is also Inspired by Stamping/Flowers Bloom. I stamped the hydrangea, colored, cut out, and popped on. I stamped off some of the hydrangea on the top layer.
Sorry about the long post. If I'm not back anymore this week, have a great weekend.
