myasperations 11-8-22

Sorry, I’m posting this card late due to health issues.
It’s the 1st of the month, so I'm sharing my DT card for the challenge at QKR Stampede. Stop by the challenge, which is always “Anything Goes” and several prizes are awarded. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter a card or two yourself?
I needed a quick card for a friend who has been a blessing in my life. And I love how so many of the wonderful sentiments from Eureka Stamps help me to create cards super quick. For this one, I printed the sentiment to fill most of an A2 sized card. A portion from an upcycled card creates a lovely card base. Easy Peasy… yet dramatic and heartfelt!

·   Digi- Eureka Digital Stamp (Loving Ways ) Also available in unmounted or cling-mounted

·   Upcycled greeting card

·   Pioneer Black Photo corners- available from several sources

·   All other items from my stash.

An article about the 2022 Ginormous Pumpkin Festivain Central Wisconsin inspired this card.  This year’s winner weighed a little over 2000 pounds, so you might just need a dump truck to transport this big ‘ol punkin!  This great digi from Scribbles Designs is perfect for the job. I wasn’t sure what to use as a background until I found this photo in my stash. I took it many years ago when we lived in South Dakota. Farmsteads, weathered by time and the consistently windy prairie, were a common scene back then. So fun!

I made a few cards for the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers {BYSHC) October Sketch Challenge, but my hectic schedule didn’t allow me time to get either of them posted until now. I really like that this sketch encourages me to use scraps of my patterned papers, so will be saving it in my “sketches folder” for future use. I used am adorable freebie from artist Angie Blom and had fun adding a Santa hat created with a scrap of red cardstock plus a strip of slightly curly fur (wool?!) from my mom’s stash of treasures that I inherited many years ago.
