Thankful Thursday #35




 

Thankful Thursdays are my opportunity to "Up My Gratitude." The goal is to make at least one card a week to thank someone. I LOVE when you play along by linking up below. 



Can you believe that we are at the 35th Thursday of the year? Just a simple card this week. I think the colors in this are perfect for a masculine card.


Have some fun this weekend! ~Rhonda

supplies used:
stamps: PTI Thanks All Ways

Make it Monday #80 - Making Garland



Make It Monday #80. Making a garland with Ashley Cannon Newell. Loved this challenge. It's the 1st day of classes for the kids in our area and I will start mentoring my 1st grader again soon. Don't you love the smell of a freshly sharpened #2 pencil?


My card used that #2 pencil for my garland. I just had to stamp a "2" from Fresh Alphabet on my pencil. The alpha strip is so stinking cute! I remember those across all the bulletin boards. Have a wonderful day. ~Rhonda

supplies:
stamps: PTI Teach and Inspire, Fruit Fusion: Apple, Tag-its #6, Fresh Alphabet
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, PTI Pure Poppy, New Leaf
paper: Cosmo Cricket Circe 1934 Mini deck; PTI Vintage Cream, Summer Sunrise
other: PTI Fruit Fusion: Apple die, tiny tags die; brad and red string - stash

Grateful for YOU - August PTI Blog Hop


 


 
This month's inspiration is all about autumn patterns, textures & textiles. I took my inspiration from the blue, mustard, and burlap.  I started working with a shipping tag and then the ideas started flowing for a Thanksgiving tabletop. I hope you like what you see. I had a great time making everything.


I re-purposed the photo cube I made for Stamp-a-faire as a place card holder. There are 3 elements - a place card, journal card to jot what you are grateful for and a little turkey for cute! A felt leaf is tied to the bottom.


The napkin ring is burlap and jute wrapped around the napkin with the grateful tag tied on. I added a couple of felt die cut leaves to complete the ring. Did you notice the herringbone impression plate on the fabulous frame die cut? I also swiped a little acrylic paint on the shipping tag. I placed it in the tea glass for another look.


I made several cards using the new Counting my Blessings word dies. They are so fabulous. I love the pattern paper packs.



A green and blue one.

 

A couple of my favorite elements are the Doily Detail die cut with fabric and cheesecloth used under the Heart-2-Heart #7 die.

 








Happy Hopping Friends! ~Rhonda

I'm thinking of you . . . always!



I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's MIM #79 again! I had put spray adhesive on a lot of fabric so I am having a great time cutting it with my dies. I decided to create a little gift bag and card that I can use for a friend or teacher when I need just a small something. I'm thinking chocolate bar!

Did you happen to pick up the washi tape from Target that everyone was talking about earlier in the summer? I DID! It is so easy to cover clothespins, bags, etc. 


I stamped the Think Big sentiment with Stazon ink.

My card base is kraft. I used Mister Huey spray and a chicken wire stencil.




I love these little flowers and leaves cut from fabric. Notice the herringbone impression plate swiped with a little Simple Chartreuse ink.




I thought it would be fun to add a little twine with the red ribbon. Kinda girly I think.

This card makes me smile and I can't wait to give it to someone special. Maybe I need to make a banner too.


Enjoy your weekend friends! ~Rhonda



Thankful Thursday #34








Thankful Thursdays are my opportunity to "Up My Gratitude." The goal is to make at least one card a week to thank someone. I LOVE when you play along by linking up below. 



I'm playing along with this week's MIM challenge - using fabric with die cuts. I had to go to the quilt store for some other fabrics so I picked up a charm pack and got the spray adhesive out for a little sticky fun.


I used the Floral Foliage die for my little tree and then added a couple of Pure Poppy buttons. 


The tab die is stapled to the graph paper. I used my Crop a Dile to punch a hole in my wooden veneer bird from Studio Calico.


I love the sentiment in this set. Perfect place to use some fabric cut with the zig zag die.




I had this cute bird tape that I used on the inside along with a Think Big sentiment.



Hope you are having a great week!!! ~Rhonda



Zooming by ...



I am working on my stash of little boy appropriate cards! A little map paper and an airplane means you can go wherever you want! I would like to cross the ocean. It felt great to pull out Fly Away. The matching die is wonderful. It would have been wonderful when I made ALL those birth annoucements.

 

The sentiment is from Little Hot Rod. A zig zag stitch keeps it in place. 



Have a great week friends! ~Rhonda

Lunch and Lingerie



The Adventures of Robin and Rhonda continue with a beautiful table scape. Biggest {HUGS} to Robin for always being up for another crazy time. Lunch and Lingerie was the bridal luncheon theme for a dear friend's daughter. We choose to mix a vintage 1930's feel with a dash of modern silver. 


The food table was covered in a lace tablecloth. Wooden boxes covered with lace gave needed height for a antique crystal candle holder and beautiful Crepe Myrtle blooms. Karla, the foodie friend co-hosted. Chicken salad, pasta salad, fruit, mini muffins, and chocolate truffles were on pedestals.


Can't be in Texas without tea. Gotta have the sweet too.


Miss Matilda came to her first ladies event. She was wearing her finest jewels. I'm green with envy of her hairstyle!


Miss Matilda anchored the decorations in the dining room. A tall birdcage, a canvas with all the important dates of the couple, silver vases draped with lace and jewelry completed the sideboard.



Each place setting started with a silver charge followed by a vintage plate collected on various outings. A white dessert plate held a burlap wrapped potted flower that were the gifts for each guest. Sterling silver tied with a lacy napkin finished the look.



Crepe Myrtle blooms cut from my backyard along with Purple Phlox and Zinnias made for wonderful floral elements placed on an aged mirror. 



The gifts were placed around these vintage suitcases outfitted with a silver brush and comb. Some lacy slips and strings of pearls complemented the simple wedding dress.


Did you spot the perfume bottles?


"E" is for Erin. A letter from Hobby Lobby spray painted silver.

We had a wonderful time! Lots of sweet memories were shared and made. ~Rhonda

Thankful Thursday #33




 

Thankful Thursdays are my opportunity to "Up My Gratitude." The goal is to make at least one card a week to thank someone. I LOVE when you play along by linking up below. 



My sentiment was inspired by Studio Calico's Abroad paper pack. All the different countries left my thinking that I needed to speak another language. I found that I had 2 Merci stamps to choose from. I love when I ink up a stamp I've never used before.


The papers matched up beautifully with Ocean Tide ribbon. My bow was a little bit of a happy accident. 


I am thankful that we are not supposed to reach the 100's today. Have a great day friends and play along if you can. ~Rhonda

Thankful Thursday #32


 

Thankful Thursdays are my opportunity to "Up My Gratitude." The goal is to make at least one card a week to thank someone. I LOVE when you play along by linking up below. 



My card today was inspired by Danielle Flander's use of card Base-ics #2. I trimmed a little from each side so you could see my purple background. 


The pattern paper is Pixie-Licious from Cosmo Cricket.




The sentiment stamps are from MFT. Just a note and Hello, my friend (selective stamping going on) are from the Just My Type set. Grateful for you is from My Favorite Sentiments 6th Birthday Celebration set. 

Enjoy your day! ~Rhonda

Thankful Thursday #31



 
“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say “thank you?”  ~William A. Ward

Another quick card today. I am using the pattern paper that I made recently for the blog hop. 


I need to watch the ribbon tying videos again. I re-tied this particular bow way too many times. I was trying NOT to cover the sentiment but alas this is as good as it gets.



The sentiment is from PTI's Iconic Images. Have a great week friends! ~Rhonda
