Happy Fall!

Whether you call it Fall or Autumn, this season brings cooler weather and pumpkins! The Fall colors are some of my favorites.

I also love this cute scarecrow and wanted to share him with you today! He is so versatile as he can say Hello, Happy Birthday, Thank You, or any other greeting!

Paper Trip to Paris!

The opportunity to visit Paris has not crossed my path. Yet. I have been fortunate to have visited other places — Japan, Singapore, England and Australia, to name a few. I hope to travel to more places in the future, but for now I will stay near my zip code.

I have visited the sale aisles of several craft stores in my area though! On one such visit, I came across a selection of craft paper books that normally sell for $20 that were on special for only $5. Well, every crafty person knows you can’t pass on a deal like that! Especially when they have several selections of themed craft paper books!

These papers were purchased a few years ago and I have used many of them. Today I would like to share some handcrafted cards I designed using the Paris collection of “My Favorite Things.”

Several papers in this collection have larger images on them that can be used for scrapbook pages. Since I need smaller images on my cards, I cut out portions of these images. I also use them as backgrounds on my cards.

It feels good to use older papers that have been in my paper stash. When I see new papers I always want to get them, but then remember that I already have so many. A true case of ‘too many papers, not enough time to use them!’

Since these papers are probably out of stock, I will only be able to create one or two of these. If you know someone who loves all things ‘Paris’, I would like to create a card for them! Contact me at horsemarkcards@gmail.com for more information.

Time for Thank You Cards!

School days are coming to a close soon, so there will be more activities planned around kids and their families. Perhaps a vacation is in the horizon, or just getting together with family and friends for a BBQ or event.

Everyone usually shares in providing food and supplies to family events or gatherings with friends. It is a team effort to make the event come together, especially when you are the host!

Whatever your plans are, remember to thank everyone for their help. A couple of days after, it will be nice for someone to receive a thank you card in their street mailbox. It will show them how they are appreciated, and remind them of the good time they shared with friends or family.

Do you keep thank you cards on hand? There is always a reason to give one, and having them available makes it easier to jot a personal note inside and put it in the mail! (Remember to keep some postage stamps around too! There are so many different images on them to add variety!)

I would love to create a card for you! Contact me at horsemarkcards@gmail.com for special requests or more information.

Thank you for visiting, and remember to give a card today!

Seashells by the Sea!

The ocean waves can be so tranquil. I can stare at the ocean and listen to the waves for hours; it is so peaceful. Maybe that is why I love to create cards that remind me of the ocean seashore.

I thought I would share a couple of cards that I created that remind me of sitting by the ocean.

These cards are perfect to send a note to a friend to say hi, or even say ‘thank you’ to someone. I can see these cards being displayed in a beach house!

I would love to create a seashell card for you! Who doesn’t love the ocean and seashells?

(Most of the cards I feature on my blogs can be created for you! Just leave a note in the comments section or contact me at horsemarkcards@gmail.com for special requests or more information.
