just a few more

Ok, these are the last cards with this stamp set or this fun baja breeze dsp {for a while}. It's time to move on to some other things.
My best friend minnz is coming over today and I am so excited to stamp with her. It's been toooo long:) On the agenda: grandparents day cards, recipe cards, and maybe some Christmas cards. It's a nice, cool day here...perfect for friends, tea, good conversation and lots of stamping! Have a good one,

I made this card the last time I got together with my friends Hillary and Steph and I figured I better get to posting it since we are getting together again today! I used Steph's greenhouse garden stamps for the flowers and the sentiment was one I got from wish-rak. I need to take this patterned paper out of the bag I'm bringing today because I can't stop using it and I {need} to move on to something else:) Thanks for stopping by, friends. Have a wonderful day!

ever grateful

Another cool, crisp morning. This card is made with one of my favorite fall colors: rusty red. Gotta love it, especially paired with cream and tan. What a great combo. I would have never thought of it, but let the patterned paper do all the work:)

chill out:)

I've been meaning to try one of kerin's sketch challenges for quite a while now and today I finally got to it. I love this Anne LaPoint image. Wouldn't a polka dot bathtub be quite fun? I colored the image with colored pencils and oms. I can't seem to stop using this baja breeze dsp. I love the bright colors!

There is definitely a chill in the air today! Have I mentioned that I love fall? I got lots of new products at the Scrapbooking Expo and I'm hoping to get to them today. Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day.

sweet pastels

These cards came about because I found a stack of light pink and purple envelopes that were an odd size. I decided to make some cards specifically for them so I could put them to use. This paper, Tea Party, jumpstarted these cards. The colors were perfect to match the envelopes. This one says "So Sweet of You" in the middle. I added 3 eyelets to the middle of the flower. Still working on using up that stash:) This one uses the same layout, but says Happy Birthday. I used some certainly celery ribbon to add a final touch to the bottom panel.
Thanks for stopping by today friends!

Here is my card for last weekend's sketch challenge. My dear friend stephanie gave me this stamp set and I wanted to make her a thank you card. I used the top note die that I recieved from wish-rak and colored the image with watercolor pencils. I love this stamp set and Stephanie was so sweet to give it to me. Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday.

flower thanks

A simple thank you card that I made with some of my favorite paper. I love the colors in this paper, a combo I would not have thought of on my own. I used the all holidays set for the sentiment and the bodacious boquet set for the flower images. It came together pretty quickly. Thanks for stopping by. Have a good one!
