Thank You Card Using CTMH October Stamp of the Month (with or without thin cuts)

Hello friends!  Another day is gone.  I hope you are doing well.  There is not much going on here at my place; which is a good thing.  Lol!  I ate some bad food from a restaurant and was sick all day Wednesday; but better now.  It is supposed to be 94 today; but cooling down to 85 tomorrow.  I sure hope so.  I hope you are not constantly fighting mosquitos like we are inside our home.  I can't get much done when they are swarming around me.  I was covered with over 13 bites on each leg for several weeks now.  I have been covering myself from head to toe with sweats and trying to keep from overheating.  Lol!

I created 2 cards with these adorable owls and this is the second one.  I wanted to use this particular owl flying; so I thought our CTMH Cloud Background would be great for that.  I kept with the fall theme for the leaves.  I do love the leaves and the gorgeous rainbow of colors in the fall.  The Owls and branch are part of the October Stamp of the Month "From Owl of Us" and comes with or without thin cuts (dies).  This is the first time we have had an option for thin cuts with our SOTM.  It is very exciting to have this option.

Thank you visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy my creations.  I appreciate all of you.  Be sure to check out my tabs at the top of the page for my videos, tutorials, clubs, specials and  more. Call, text, Facebook message or email me with any questions you might have.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!


  1. This card is adorable. I love how you've played with the blue cardstock to create the sky and that little owl is super cute. Thanks for joining us at My Time To Craft. Hugs, María.

  2. Sweet little owl and lovely card Gloria! I've been plagued with what we call "noseeums"...tiny gnats and I think it's because of all the rain we've had. I use Zevo Insect Spray, it's good stuff. Thanks for joining in at The Paper Funday Challenge. We appreciate your support.
