Once Upon a Time

The current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge calls for a color scheme that includes Coral, Aqua & Grey. I had fun making a wedding card that I’ll need in a few weeks. The young couple will appreciate the humorous sentiment.
(A little history about this interior sentiment- A few years ago, on our 35th Anniversary, I sweetly noted that my hubby and I had celebrated 35 years of wedded bliss. Without skipping a beat, my hubby quickly noted, "Well, it's really been more like 25 years of wedded bliss, 7 years of pretty good, and only 3 years of WHAT were we thinking?!" Our friends and family burst into laughter and applause. As we grow old together and start slowly losing our sight, hearing, teeth, agility and memory... his quick wit just grows more refined with age!)

This week’s Monday challenge at wecraftcards Forum is to make a criss cross card. Tutorials for making this simple, but impressive, card can be found on Pinterest and youtube. The gorgeous free digi is from Beccy’s Place.

Another Christmas card that featured a house or cottage. I’ve always liked D. Morgan stamps, but didn’t like all the coloring required. For this one, I stamped the image twice, on gray and white cardstock. Colored the image on white, tore a heart shape around the cottage, adhered to card, colored and added glitter.

  2. Beautiful Christmas card Kathy. Thank you for playing along with our Challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round. We would love to see you again ... Anet DTx

  3. Great cards as always Kathy, well done!
    I love the sentiment on the first card... that gave me quite a chuckle, and it's far more accurate than "happily ever after".
    Your strawberry card is wonderful and bright, I love the happy colours you chose for the papers, they work great with the image.
    I really like the way you've highlighted a small part of the image for your third card, it stands out beautifully. The glitter is a nice touch too.
    Great work Kathy!
