A Card and a Layout

This is Tuesday, not Monday!...I have to keep reminding myself of this fact because yesterday was our Canadian Thanksgiving day but it felt like a Sunday so today feels like Monday! Obviously I’m easily confused.

We didn’t have any family over….they all live too far away for a day trip and we didn’t visit them because I have total laryngitis again. I went from a soft voice on Friday to absolutely no voice at all within 5 minutes and it has not come back. No use visiting when you can't talk! I get the results of the thyroid biopsy next week so maybe I’ll get some answers then.

Seeing it was just the two of us we went to one of our favourite place, Point Pelee National Park. It was so crowded it was insane! Luckily we have a lot of patience and don’t let little things like waiting in line upset us. I took a few photos and immediately after downloading them, I added them to some scrapbook templates. Here they are:

 As you can see, not much colour in those leaves! Usually by our Thanksgiving the leaves are a riot of colours of red; green; yellow and orange….but not this year. That bird is a Golden-Crowned Kinglet and its the first time I got a photo of the crown showing.


Now I just have to add them to 12x12 layouts; add a title; journaling and embellishments and done!  Hopefully I’ll get that done and post the finished product in a few days.

The card I’m posting today was an experiment that I wasn’t sure I liked but, as usual when I don’t like something, a friend of mine saw it and loved it and wanted it for her father. I was happy to see it go!


This was made by masking off parts of the card and stamping an image in the centre and around the edge and continuing all around the card. The shore birds; lighthouse and flying birds are from the Stampin’ Up High Tide stamp set; the others are from others. I’ll make another one because it was fun to do but I’ll use smaller images maybe. We shall see.

Tomorrow is Wednesday….and as long as I remember it’s Wednesday, I’ll be posting a card to get back on the Monday, Wednesday, Friday posting schedule.

That’s all for a sunny Tuesday, October 10, 2017.

  1. Aaaawww you guys look great Violet! I like your card.. Something really different and i look forward to seeing another one if you do one.

    I thought you might like to know that the Canadian Geese have been flying overhead all day!!! I was so excited to see and hear them. I went out for a walk just so i could be a part of the great migration...lol silly i know.. But i remember them so well growing up in the PA/NJ area and really haven't seen these numbers since childhood.. It was so fabulous!

    It must be so frustrating to not be able to talk.. I'm a fairly quiet person myself but it would drive me crazy to not be able to talk when i want to... It will be good to get your results just to know and we put all our hope into hoping its nothing serious.. Hugs! deb
