My Sheri Crafts - Ch 147 Oh Christmas Tree

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for a fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts. Sue has chosen the theme "Oh Christmas Tree". She asked us to make a card/project for Christmas which must include a tree. I must say it has been over a year since I have participated in any challenges. I am happy to be playing again! Many thanks to Sheri and the design team for bearing with me during this difficult time.

Recently I received the Cricut Anna Griffin Christmas Kitsch cartridge. I enjoyed working with the pretty card features on this cartridge to make these cards.

The shaped tree card image 15 is found on page 29. Using pretty double sided paper allows for the look above. Oh Christmas Tree sentiment is from Cricut Winter Frolic.

Above card is the image 28 found on page 55.The word peace is found on Winter Wonderland cartridge.

I used image 29 for the deer/tree card which is found on page 57. Tis the Season is found on the Winter Frolic cartridge.
All cards were cut 5.5 inches. I used Christmas papers that were purchased a couple of years ago.

Visit the design team's blogs to see all their creative tree projects. Remember you must make a Christmas card/project which includes a tree. We look forward to seeing your pretty cards!

Thanks for visiting today!

Happy Thanksgiving

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hello Blogging Friends! It has been such a long time since I have posted on my blog. I am not sure if everything on blogger remains the same so I thought maybe I should do a trial post! I remember some talks about changes to Blogger but I have not done anything different. I hope some of my friends will see this and will comment if you do.

My family really went through a lot last year and this year. My husband passed away in February this year after a lengthy but courageous battle with cancer. My mother-in-law had been sick most of this year and she died in October. It has been hard to deal with loss and changes. But through friendships, prayers, and strength from God, I am doing ok. Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support!

I have been crafting some and wanted to share a couple of projects that I completed. Above photo is the results of my first try with burlap. I like the way it looks! The flower on the the B is also made from burlap. Below is a pin using one of my red burlap flowers and a Battenburg doily. Just perfect for a Red Hat Lady!

My next project is a scarecrow wreath made using a straw wreath which I cut into at the bottom to make arms. The sleeves and collar are from an old flannel shirt. Gloves are stuffed with poly-fil for the hands. He looks quite handsome on my patio!

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving! Hope to be back soon sharing some Christmas cards!
