Morning Maja lovelies! It’s Andrea here with you today…here in the United States we’re gearing up for our Thanksgiving holiday…which usually translates into a four day weekend for some of us lucky ones…(yes, I’m one of them!). This year is a special one for me and my daughter, our birthdays happen to fall on the Thanksgiving holiday. I had her on my 29th birthday so we share something very special…being born on the same day! I can tell you, I will never get another birthday present as wonderful as that one! Getting back to why you’re here…I’ve got a few cards to share with you, the first one from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection:AndreaEwenCSC167MajaThis card features No. XIX, No. XIII, No. XXIII and No. XX papers. I made a bird’s nest out of burlap and glue…and added a few pearl ‘eggs’ to it. The leaves are cut out of a strip of burlap and I also added some fabric leaves and a row of paper flowers over some vintage lace. The crystal flourish is from Zva Creative. In addition, to the top and bottom, I added a zig-zag of hand stitching. Here are a couple of other cards I’ve made over the last two weeks featuring Maja Design papers:AndreaEwenCSC166MajaCThis tag also features the Vintage Autumn Basics papers, loaded up with Zva Creative pearls, fabric flowers, chipboard, daisy-chain lace, tulle accents, twine and lots of shabby edges.The sentiment was cut out from No. IV-bs at the bottom of the page…Marie always includes sweet sentiments and strips of heavenly shabby designs at the bottoms of the pages. Lastly, here’s a Christmas card in celebration of the next big holiday:DivaDareNovember2013MA few jingle bells, some distressed gingham ribbon, fabric flowers, ephemera and some burlap added to the It’s Christmas time collection make this quite a cozy card!

Thanks so much for joining me today…hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to my  American friends!Andrea-sign
