Merry and Bright.... about 3 months, Christmas will be hear...can you believe that?! Not sure I'm ready for Christmas, are you? Anyways, thought I would share some cards that were submitted for the holiday categories but weren't picked up...I'm almost sure this was for a 'snowman' category... :)  The problem with showing these reject cards is you can't remember what it was for because you made it about 7 months ago.

Merry and Bright snowmen

Isn't the snow guy cute? Everything is from October Afternoon except the pearls and cardstock.  Fun little card, very CAS!

Have a great weekend!

Thank You

A bright and cheery card I finished up this morning.  I am giving this to a lady at school.......and what makes me happy are the colors of these flower stickers:

Thank you

Another good way to use up your pile of stickers and knick knacks, throw several of them onto a card and make a vertical or horizontal pattern! Mix and match the colors for a streamlined look.

Enjoy, and hope your day is wonderful!

First of Autumn

Here in the states it's the first day of Autumn, marking the Fall weather, and the beginning of cooler temps....and brings us lots of warmer and soothing colors like auburns, mustards, oranges, forest greens, and teals.  This is one of my favorite 'leaf' stamps from Hero Arts called the Leaf Flourish:

Fall Blessings

I've used this leaf stamp in several ways, coloring/blending with markers, and my favorite is embossing with white embossing powder then blending my distress inks like these older cards below: 

Celebrate Leaf Flourish

happy Thanksgiving leaf flourish
Wonder how else I could play with this stamp?  Is it cooler where you are?  We are still drenched in heat, but we should be seeing the Fall weather around October.

See you!

Autumn Card

Is it fall yet? Not quite yet for us.....we are still enjoying hot summer days, but thought for those of you who would appreciate cooler are some fall colors:


I used mostly American Crafts supplies to include the patterned papers and dimensional stickers.  The turkey  is so fun!  And those paper leaves are from Amy Tangerine.  Fun little card.

Have a great one, everybody!

Smile and Hello Friend

Been making lots of cards today, some for pub calls, others for fun and just for me.....isn't this one cute....little masking tape stickers from Pebbles:

smile hello friend

I was going for a block look with the tape but decided to just go random, I added a dimensional sticker from  MME, and a fun flag from Bella Blvd.  Added a super large pearl from Teresa Collins.....gotta love those large ones!  Rounded only one corner of the card.  And I'm done.

Enjoy! Hope you are enjoying Labor Day weekend!
