Welcome to Debbie, Kelly and My’s ;) Mini Blog Hop!

What a happy day this is - with all of us ladies having super busy lifestyles at this time it’s a minor miracle we can all meet up here to bring YOU some Autumn and (American) Thanksgiving fun for your Silhouette cutting machines (or I’ve included my files in .svg format so you can convert them for other machines if you wish!) 

I’ll give you a sneak peek of Debbie’s use of my Leaves FREEBIE:


Well how cool is THAT?  I’d never have imagined up such a wonderful idea.  I give thanks for friends like Debbie who come up with brilliant ways to use my files! 

And here is how Kelly created something beautiful with the same file:


Wonderful and unique, Kelly - I’m sure your and Debbie’s crafts are sure to gather compliments.  I won’t give away any more ‘sneaks’ - everyone will have to come visit you to see your takes on your own files - and until then, here’s what I thunk up the designs you sent my way:


I couldn’t help but make an entire basket for my porch to show off all of our efforts together. 


I decided to print and modge podge Debbie’s fun Thanksgiving files onto a squash (did not have a pumpkin or it would have wound up on that.  It was super easy to do.


Now isn’t Tom the Turkey just too cute for words? 


I outlined each graphic using a black Sharpie and added some swirls as well. 


I used Kelly’s delicate Pumpkin cut to embellish this greeting card.  I added it to Kay’s Pumpkin pen sketch file which was posted HERE a while ago.



I am still in love with my Niji Pearlescent paints and used them to bring shimmer to the pumpkin and I also used foam tape to raise Kelly’s pumpkin out from the card - its the center of interest!

And now that I’ve shown off my friend’s mirificent FREEBIES I’ll show my effort. 


I snuggled my Leaves Border under the ribbon on my greeting card. I have included several variations on these leaves, from full page size (aprox 11 - 12 inches) size or the standard quarter fold size (aprox 5.5 x 4.25 inches) - two sets, one the entire chain of leaves on one layer, the others are broken down into four sections with each strand a different leaf, so you can stack em!  I put all my files into a “zipped” folder - leave me a comment if you need a tutorial on “unzipping” folders.
