Painted Harvest Birthday Card

A Painted Harvest Birthday conjures up ideas of falling leaves, hot apple cider and cooler weather.

The Thursday Challenge this week is a color challenge.

This week I was inspired by the color combination and if I had the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper it would have been a snap!

But…

that is the one pack of Designer Series Paper that I didn’t buy for some odd reason.

So…

I decided to find a way to combine the colors without the assistance of the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper and that super cutie patootie little witch and kitten.

Painted Harvest Birthday Card created by Dawn Thomas featuring Painted Harvest Stamp Set and Tufted Dynamic TIEF in rich autumn colors

Halloween Swap Cards

Halloween Swap Cards…no tricks just treats!

Do you remember trading baseball cards as a kid?

My brothers traded baseball cards but I traded Charlie’s Angels cards and Garbage Pail Kids cards.

And yes, it was the original Charlie’s Angels – Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith.

What does that have to do with Swap Cards?

I see Card Swaps as being similar to trading baseball cards.

I love everything about Card Swaps…

  • making the cards
  • sending them off to the coordinator
  • but mostly, getting the package back in the mail!

I recently participated in a Holiday Catalog Swap featuring Halloween and Fall themed cards. As always, the cards I received were FABULOUS! I will be sharing them over the next several weeks. Ready to see some cards?
