Play time!

Hi everyone,
I hope you are having a great week.  I have been working on a couple of Haloween cards, but got side-tracked tonite. That's what happens when you  order a new toy & it comes in!  Memory Box has the most beautiful & intricate dies you have ever seen. They are irresistible!  I decided to play around with a simple sympathy card using the Cataline Wreath. I had ordered a gorgeous tree for that purpose, but the wreath was just too gorgeous once I saw it.

This is the fastest card I think I have ever made.  I used an EK Success corner punch for the corners & laid the wreath down around my sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly. Presto! A gorgeous card.  The possibilities are just endless. I'm already thinking of things I want to do with it.  I hope you like it too!  I promise to post a Halloween card next time.  I didn't have the energy to do more than a quick card tonite as I came home & did a little raking. Although my yard has no trees in front, the neighbor has a huge, ugly, ill-tempered monster that dumps a foot of leaves all over my parking & front yard every fall.  And the rest of the year it just dribbles nasty pods & seeds that have to be swept off the sidewalk.  Can you put a hit out on a tree?  ha ha

Have a great Wed.  Catch you all later!


  1. Beautiful card. How did you attach the wreath? I have a lot of trouble when I try to attach something that delicate. I tried to look up a solution to the comment problem. It told me to switch to a pop-up comment box, and that might help. I don't appear to have that option. Or I just can't find it.
