I love the quote by President Thomas S. Monson “To live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heaven.” I think it is true. Life is sweeter when we look through the challenges and experiences of our lives with gratitude. What better time of year to count our blessings than in the fall, which is why I used fall leaves for embellishments.
I like it so much that I made it again adding a die cut “Thank You” from Karen Burniston.
I saw this great post on Pinterest ( 473229873344337455 ) and thought I would give it a try for a masculine birthday card. All you need is some balloon dies, a pretty birthday die cut, and a way to add rainbow colors to your cardstock. Love the way it turned out. So bright and colorful.
This is the last card I made with the Frantic Stamper Woven Ribbons Card Panel die. I love the plaid paper in the pattern. I used Copic Markers to make a ombre look to the birthday die cut, paired it with some Lawn Fawn Party Balloons and really liked the way it turned out.

I recently purchased Lawn Fawns’ Stitched Palm Tree Border and thought I would create a beach scene for this cute musical critters from My Favorite Things. I used my VersaMark Pen to add specs of sand to the beach with Hero Arts Sand Embossing Powder.
For this card I used all the leftover flowers I had from the previous cards I had make. The pink and yellow make a cheerful card. I like the jagged edges created from Penny Black’s Antique Frame Rectangle.

My brother has a birthday coming up and his favorite colors are red and blue. I decided to use the Concord & 9th Birthday Basic Turnabout with two colors of red and two of blue. Added an Altenew Layered Cupcake and some small balloons and was happy with the results.

I’ve used this stamp several times in the past, but this time I decided to use actual tissue paper and loved the way it looked. At the last minute I added the confetti exploding from the box and it was the perfect touch.
I love how bright and colorful this turnabout background is, but it was a little too busy for the candles I wanted to add, so I die cut a circle from white cardstock and it really them really pop on the page.
