I really truly believe that..
fall is finally on its way. It is crisp in the mornings now and Patrick even wore a sweatshirt this morning..Of course we do have to leave the house at 7 in order for him to get to his school on time! It will be a long year with all this commuting but well worth it! We just love our charter school. Oh well, this is his last year there! The first card I have posted is one I made for my older son to give to an 80 year old lady he plays Mahjonn with. If you don't know what this is, it is an old Chinese game that uses tiles and lots of patience and memory! Perfect for him! My mom plays and he wanted to learn so she taught him.. The only problem is, there aren't that many people that play it around her. She plays with a group of ladies and she is the youngest at 72! No matter, he has played with them all summer and his friends think it is a hoot! All the old ladies love him and loved the card. I hate to tell you the inside sentiment (his choice) "It is so Awesome you aren't dead yet" He assured me that she would love it.they all thought it was hilarious!!
The second card is for a challenge I posted over on another site. The challenge was to use felt in some way. I have been using felt now for quite awhile and love the softness it gives a card. It also adds dimension and texture. Love to pink the edges and sew on it too! I used an image from the net and printed it onto the felt then just sewed around the edges. Hope you can find some felt and make a felt card today!
