Fall Card Class!! Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012

Hello all!

I have a card class coming up on Saturday and I wanted to share the cards with you. These cards are made using Creative Memories stickers as the influence for the design.
 These are fall cards. There are thank yous and birthdays and all ocassion. There are different techniques used on each and then there will be 2 cards that will teach
new techniques that I think will be new for you, but that I'm saving for a surprise! lol ?What did someone say I don't have them done yet? Hmmmm.
I hope you'll join us if you can. If you can't be there, I hope you enjoyed looking at what I've been working on recently.
We had rain today, pretty soon a fire in the wood stove, leaves covering the ground, someone making soup (oh yeah, that would be me) ahhhh, sounds great doesn't it?
Stay warm, my friends.

You're the Best... No Really!!

Today I'm entering a challenge on the Hero Arts blog.  If you go to the web-site and click on the Blog you can see the sketches that I had to choose from. Part of the challenge is to use Hero Arts stamps (I definitely need more hehe).  Here's my submission!

The paper is from Basic Grey It's an older paper from my stash, which makes me very happy! I embossed one side with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and used Stickles on the pumpkin and the leaves.

I'm having a super great day on this 10-11-12!! The GIANTS just won the game and they're going on!!!

It's been hard to get anything done *-* I hope you're having a happy day too!

Can I Hear a "Hoot?" How About a "HOOT HOOT"

I am entering a new sort of challenge today with Dynamic Duos. There are lots of ideas on their site and anything is acceptable, with the challenge being to stick to the two colors for the week.

I was excited to join in and I thought I'd combine it with the Mojo Monday (MOJO262), which is a sketch challenge.  Mojo Monday has beautiful sketches which are wonderfully inspiring.  Go onto the website and see the archives of great sketches.

I made my card from a stamp I got at Joanne's to give it the seasonal touch.

It was actually fun to be limited to the Tangerine and Old Olive. (The neutral colors are free to use). I made the leaves with a Creative Memories punch that was seasonal a few years back. I added stickles to the leaves to match the glittery tangerine paper. I'm sorry it's hard to see in the picture. I went from not knowing what to do with the glitter paper to having a lot of fun with them (at least orange).

I hope you'll give challenges a try, they are so much fun and did I mention that you can win prizes for the creations you make? Lots of the challenges have sponsors that donate great stamps and papers, etc.

It's a beautiful day to be creative.

Sweet Little Autumn Card

This is a fun little birthday card that was so easy to make with My Minds Eye.  I love the colors in this paper and the happy butterflies. The sentiment is from Penny Black.

Don't you just LOVE fall. My only complaint is that it's not long enough. I think it should go 'til February and then a month of winter and then spring! Perfect huh?

I'll be entering a card or two into some challenges this week.  One card is done. I'll share it in a later post, maybe even today!

I have lots to be thankful for everyday, but the Lord has heeped blessings on me and my family lately.

I hope you're having a blessed day too.
