Painted Harvest Swap Card

Sharing another swap card today.  Last night hubby and I went to the movies for a special showing of "The Music Man".  From time to time the theaters, in conjunction with Turner Classic Movies, will have $5.00 showings of old movies.  The first one we went to a couple of years ago was "Casa Blanca".  We've also seen "Some Like It Hot" and "Willy Wonka".  The tickets were cheap but we spent more on food tonight that we did at Outback Steakhouse!  Of course, we had $25 off with Outback, but still!

Today I'm sharing Patti Galegher's card made with Painted Harvest.  She also used Hold on to Hope from the 2018 Occasions catalog.

Crumb Cake - 9 1/2" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 4"
Garden Green - 4" x 3 3/4" (outside mat)
Whisper White - 3 3/4" x 3 1/2" (outside)
Garden Green - 5 1/4" x 4" (inside mat)
Whisper White - 5" x 3 3/4"

Garden Green Strip - 4" x 1 1/4", scored and folded at 3"

Attach the strip behind the inside Garden Green mat so you won't have to figure out where to attach it later when it is too late.

I'm going to guess at the colors here.  To me it looks like Powder Pink and Fresh Fig for the flowers, Garden Green for the leaves and side band and mats.

Stamp as shown and fussy cut one of the flowers to put on the strip.

Thank you for looking in today and thank you to Patti for such a fun and beautiful card for our swaps.

Happy Hump Day!

  1. Wonderful card! Another set I just had to get and only used it once I think. But, I will keep it and use it periodically. It is a fun flower and can take on all kinds of color combinations like this one! Maybe I am just saving my flower stamps and just had to haves for end of the year as saving the best for last! Thanks for sharing Patti's swap card. It is really pretty and love that she used a different color combination.

  2. Oh and I forgot to ask how you liked the movie. It is all about Iowa. It is supposed to be the Quad Cities as in Davenport, I think, I am from the "Other River City" south of there in Burlington. When I was younger and for Steamboat Days the townsmen would wear the striped jackets and there was so much red, white, and blue and buntings in the gazebos. Straw hats, you betcha though mine was plastic made to look like basketweave with a red/white/blue ribbon down the back!
    Anyway, that was our version of the Music Man!


    1. Thank you Chris. I thought of you FIRST thing when they mentioned Iowa. I had completely forgotten that about the movie. How fun that the town would do fun things like that. I've missed that coming from Phoenix. When we visited Mark's family in Wadsworth, Ohio, the home of the Blue Tip Matches and we were there in time for the Blue Tip Parade. It was filled with Red, White and Blue banners and buntings and candidates in cars - it must have been an election year! I loved it and the parade was just down the road about 3 or 4 houses. It was awesome.

      About the card - I loved her color choices too. I need to ask her if my guesses were right. It sure came out nice.


Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog and leave a comment. I always love hearing from you and I promise to comment back, so come back again!
