Winter Is Coming Wednesday - #8 - Thanksgiving Cards Walk Through, Finishing up Last Week's Card Fronts

Winter Is Coming Wednesday - #8 | Tracy Marie Lewis |

I cannot believe that we are already into September! Sheesh, winter is just around the corner and we leave from our home area to stay at the ocean this winter. We are hoping to ride out some storms while there.

We have so much to finish up before we leave. Today in fact we finally took our old truck to a local consignment dealer to sell it for us. We'd hoped to have my mom sell it after the Covid pandemic passed, but it appears to be here to stay for awhile longer.

We spent the last month slowly working on it to sell. Finally last friday it was so close to ready that we set our target date - today. I am so glad to have that task marked as done!

Alas, it meant less crafting time. This week was one of those instances where as much as I wanted to craft, I just didn't get the time in that was needed to finish last week's AND start this weeks planned craft projects.

As a result, I decided to film the progress I made on the card fronts I demonstrated last week. Three of the cards are finished to the point that I feel good about them while two are half done. I will put them away until inspiration strikes.

This is my creative process and is why I dislike creating a card at the last minute. 

I am sure you will see the final two make another appearance closer to winter. I am waffling with the idea of chopping them up into smaller chunks.

Which is your favorite of the five? Did you agree with hub and I on the background to use for the one with the vellum doily edge?
