Thank You Thank You Thank You

Happy Fall!

The leaves are changing and the cool air is upon us.
Sure makes sleeping at night nice!

Here is a card I created for two challenges:

Paper Players Create a Fall Scene #263
Freshly Made Sketch #204
I chose to use a MFT stamp set called Out on a Limb. I love that I could colour each of the leaves with my SU markers.

All Is Calm, All Is Bright

Gosh some days I wish life would SLOW down....just a little ;)

I miss the days that I had energy to get crafty after work.
Maybe I'm working too

My SU! card below was created for the Freshly Made Sketch #204 which I flipped so I could use these cool new trees from the Wonderland Stamp Set.

I'm busy playing catch up on my cards.
I often sit down and create a couple at a time but then by time I edit and upload to Splitcoast I've run out of time.

So here is a card from about two weeks ago using the Freshly Made Sketch #203
I stamped the Hardwood background from SU in Crumb Cake onto Crumb Cake cardstock.
The leaves are from MFT and I used a variety of SU inks.

Good day!

Things are still fairly busy around here and not a lot of happening on my blog.
I apologize!
I have gotten a few emails saying that even though I don't post daily that they enjoy reading my posts through their feeds :)

Here is a card I created using a Freshly Made Sketch #202
The background was made a long time ago and had been collecting dust on my desk.

You Are So Kind

Hello :)

I've been such a bad blogger again.
It's back to school which means that it's one of my crazy busy times at work.

I have created cards I just haven't had much online time.

Here is a card I created a week or so ago for the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge and the Freshly Made Sketch.
I'm happy to say that it was chosen as one of the favourites for the Paper Players Challenge.

This is a SU only card using a colour I don't think I often reach for but really like.
Stamps: Watercolor WingsPaper: White, Mint MacaronInk: Black, Mint MacaronAccessories: SU embossing Folder, Butterfly Thinlits, Paper Piercer, Dimensionals

Hello :)

Holy cow!
Where did the summer go?! 
It's like a switch was flipped this week and suddenly the trees are starting to change and before I know it, we'll be raking leaves.
I actually enjoy fall and welcome it :)

Here is another card I created using the Freshly Made Sketch #200.
Flower dies are from Taylored Expressions and the Hello die is from AveryElle.
