Cards Designer of the Month November, a Card and More!

Hello!  Hope your having a great week!  The end of October is here already!  I've been kept busy with making wreaths for etsy sales and an upcoming artisan sale this Saturday!  I am excited and also nervous since it will be my first sale with my wreaths! I am also bringing headbands and pacifier clips!  So I am busy creating!

I wanted to stop by and share a card but also some exciting news!  I am Cards Designer of the Month for November!  I've known and did share back in January but it's finally here!  I can't share any of the cards yet but I would be thrilled if you did check it out, you can purchase the issue here on there website.  I have an ipad mini so it's easy to look at it!  Here is a little snap from the article:

I can't share any of the cards from the issue but I can share a card I created a bit back using one of my favorite Mama Elephant Stamps along with some Hero Arts:

I started off by stamping the Looped Flower Background by Hero Arts with wet cement by HA.  Than I stamped the Mama Elephant Lovely Mum flowers in orange soda and bubble gum pink by HA.  I heat embossed the sentiment from Mama Elephant's Smitten set onto grey cardstock and finished this card off with sequins by Avery Elle!

In case you didn't see I wanted to share that I am collecting cards on behalf of Canadians for the Caring Hearts Card Drive, there are a lot of prizes!  You can see more info here  I would love it if you sent cards in!

I also wanted to share some new wreaths in my shop!

This one has been quite popular already. you can find it here



A Christmas Burlap Bubble Wreath that you can find here


And a Snowflake Wreath in cool winter colors, you can find it here


That's it for me!  I hope to be back soon!  I apologize for the quietness on my blog.  You can find me on instagram as AnitaReck and on facebook Anita Recksiedler I post there a lot!  Until next time!
