A Something Old and Something New Card


This has been a wonderful warm, almost hot, week here in Ontario. Joe said he thinks he’s covered up the A/C unit a few days too soon but it cools off nicely at night so we’ve done fine with it off. Cold temperatures coming overnight with rain though and temperatures likely in the high 60’s for the next week or so.



This is the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend….and we have so much to be thankful for too. My thoughts are with those in Haiti, Florida, Georgia and up the coast that are battling the hurricane. We quite often get the tail end of these hurricanes but nothing like what they are getting.  



Joe and I both love birds and we have five different feeders in the back yard. We have a small beaded cup that hangs on one of the feeders that I fill with whole peanuts for the blue jays. I sometimes just barely make it back into the house when the jays are there getting a peanut. Here are a few shots I took of them last week.

 
He dropped one and immediately went down to get it.

Only one left?

The same blue jay took all the peanuts. He kept flying just a short way away, different direction each time, hid it somewhere and then returned for another one. I have no idea how he knows where he hides them.




Today’s card was made with something old and something new.

 


The tag was made as a make-and-take at our local scrapbooking store, The Paper Pickle, probably a couple or three years ago. I pulled it out and decided I just had to use it up. So I took a piece of yellow cardstock and ran it through an embossing folder and then just gently rubbed a brown ink pad over the embossed bits to hi-lite them. Then it was glued to a kraft card base which happens to match the tag. The tag was adhered with dimensional foam and then small red gems were added to some of the flowers. This would be a quick and easy card to make even if the tag wasn’t already made. In fact, I may make some more as thinking of you or birthday cards.



That’s all for a lovely Friday, October 7, 2016. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.


Cheers

Violet
