Thankful - or not :-)

Hello, the card shows one of the duties i dislike the most :-) and this time of the year is aaalmost here. Picking up twigs and sticks all over the yard. :-( not so thankful about that job :-)

I have stamped and cut out the wagon and popped it up so i was able to glue some paper leaves and tiny roses in that i have just received yesterday in the mail from my super talented friend Annita! (thank you sweetie) However i love the color combination.. that's the first time i have made a orange / blue card and it came all together from that Martha Stewart tag i had

If you like, please join us over on the Friday Sketcher this week. Verve Stamps has given us a gift certificate to shop at the store and the sketch is not bad either :-)

What a pretty Fall card Claudia!! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!! xx

Linda S. said...

Hi Claudia, I was just enjoying your post about not enjoying the Fall yard clean-up. I just had an idea...after Lucas see's the Dr. and gets the O.K., maybe you could send the two boys out into the back yard and tell them about a contest you are having to see who can pick up the most sticks and leaves from the yard. Whoops, Oh, WAIT,.....two little boys with sticks in their hands,......Nope, I don't think so...CONTEST HAS BEEN CANCELLED!!
Love your card, and those Hangler-Stangler Stamps. Do you think you could talk Diana into carrying them at Magnolia-licious?? Hugs, Linda S. in NE lsfouratwindstreamdotnet
