Fall Card For Drew

by Myrna Irwin

I’ve had all the images stamped for over a year. I changed my mind last year on his Fall card. This year I thought it was perfect. I am getting more patient than other years. I waited until he received the card. Actually, he received it Monday. Mailed it Saturday! WOW! Yesterday we were gone all day as hubby had a job interview.

I will digress here for a moment. I got my hair cut the other day. It had been the longest ever in my life. Probably a good 8-10″ below my shoulders. I have to say I really miss it! I feel strange. It’s now maybe an inch or two below my shoulders. Hmm, with all that’s going on in our lives and I’m upset about missing hair. 😦

For Drew’s card I used mini Magnolia’s. Cool Edwin is a favorite of mine and LOVED the wheelbarrow with spring tulips in it. I masked the tulips when I stamped the wheelbarrow and then masked the wheelbarrow and added some adorable pumpkins! Bet you didn’t know there were adorable pumpkins out there! LOL Oh yes, the card is only 4 1/2 x 4 1/2″.

  • Stamps:  Cool Edwin, Wheelbarrow, Fall is in the Air – Magnolia/Pumpkins – Stampin Up

I have 5 cards sitting here ready to go to special people. Annette your birthday card is ready for Friday. Then 5 Halloween cards. Mady and Sydney’s are done. I made 3 Halloween cards for my two sisters and myself. It’s the Saturated Canary Witchkeys one. I thought it was PERFECT!!! I REALLY went outside the box for me! I hope to finish them tomorrow. I’m to the embellie part. The hardest part for me. 

Thanks for looking and always appreciate the love you leave me.

  1. Great job on the card, Myrna. The coloring was up to your usual awesome standards. Loved the layout, too. It’s great to be in the season of orange, too, isn’t it?

  5. This is darling, Myrna. Edwin and his wheelbarrow of pumpkins are adorable. Love the distressing on your card and cute die cuts. Great card.
    BTW…hair cuts can be stressful if they are drastic but remember, hair always grows back. 🙂

  6. Awesome card! Love the pumpkins in the wheel barrow and how you layered each square. I didn’t notice it until now that you sprayed that glimmer mist on the white background with the clouds sponged on. Very cool love it all!!! 🙂

    Love Andrew
