Hello all! Today I have a quick share for you. I had this small piece of Glimmer card sitting on my table since Spring, so I decided to make a little note card with it for Fall. I thought the turquoise and the oranges and browns of the paper went together well, and I just happened to have a sunflower charm left over from a previous Work Shop on the Go by CTMH that matched perfectly. Love it when everything just falls into place, don't you?! The card dimensions are 41/4 x 41/4 so I also made an envelope to match out of some kraft. Have a beautiful day and thanks for peeking!

Supplies- CTMH: "Harvest Charms" WOTG: Dreamin', Glitter paper in Dark Brown, Sentiment: "Lots of Love", a new stamp set found in the Holiday Mini. Spellbinders: Shapeabilities label "Grommet Tags"

Show Your Colors

Hey Ya'll!  Just poppin' in to show you some cards that I made a few weeks ago at a playdate with Shirley, my upline with CTMH. She brought all kinds of shapes and colors for the two most recognized football teams here in Alabama and we just used our imagination and came up with some birthday cards. The first one I made for my hubby. He's an Alabama fan and his birthday is on Halloween. This is the off year for me to make his non- Halloween card. I used three different stamp sets and several different rectangles and just played around with them till I got it the way I liked it. The second most recognized team here is Auburn which my Father used to be a Professor at, so this one is for his birthday. I finished it up at home by making a small pom pom and adding the typewriter letters at the bottom. I must admit that I prefer the orange and blue to the crimson and grey myself, but I route for them both unless they are playing each other. Oh, I did add some white stitching with my gel pen to the sentiment on the Auburn card after the picture was taken. I just decided it needed something extra. It looked too plain.  Show Your Colors!! Thanks for looking!

Supplies- CTMH: All cardstock, Shimmer Trim in silver and black, Tiny Type Epoxy Alphabet, Stamps: "You Are My Happy", "A Little Gift", "Perfect Fit Birthday", Pom pom made with Paper Ribbon from World Market.

Autumn Blessings

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. We are finally experiencing a touch of Fall her, and I couldn't be more happy! I love the Fall season!  This is my first official card of the season! I was still playing with the core'dinations cardstock and  found some that was already embossed by jillibean soup (the red leaf in the center). The background was done with the Black Magic collection with a pale orange core. I used some jute from my stash along with some small pieces of corrugated cardboard that where laying on my table. I wish where ever you are that you are enjoying this wonderful Fall weather, and thanks for looking!

Supplies- Leaves: Tim Holtz Alterations die "Tattered Leaves", Stamp: S.U. "Take Care" Label: S.U. "modern Label(trimmed), Embossing folder: Paper Studio "Leaves".

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing my last Halloween card with you. I've moved on to some Fall cards, and Hubby's b'day is on Halloween so I needed to start planning for that as well. This one was easy to make and I like the way it turned out. I used two of the new stamps from CTMH plus an old one from last year. I added some Distress Stickles, some punched webs and bats, and some bling and tulle from my stash and Wah-Lah, done in a flash! Hope you like, and I'll be back next week to share one of those Fall cards with you. Thanks for peeking!
Supplies- CTMH: Stamps "Backdrop-Charmed"(old), "Perfect Fit-Halloween" and "Eek and Shriek"(new), Punches: Martha Stewart "Web Lace?" (cut in half) and "Bat".

 Hey all!  Here's another card using core'dinations paper where the core is yellow. I used a paper studio folder and just slightly sanded it down. Everything, except for the moon and the "grass", is made from a Tim Holtz strip die. I needed something behind the trick or treaters and my daughter suggested the green. I'm still not real sure about the green though. Maybe it's the polka dots, I don't know! Tell me what you think?! I love to read your comments. Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies-  core'dinations :"Black Magic" paper, Paper Studio: Embossing folder "Mesh Texture", Tim Holtz Alterations strip die " Halloween Shadows", Inside sentiment: CTMH " Eek and Shriek", and the bats are from the strip die.

Hey everyone! This card was made on the spur of the moment at a playdate a couple of weeks ago It is CAS, quick and easy. My friend Gale had this stamp set and I fell in love with the cute little owl. Some CTMH papers, a border punch and some bakers twine finished it off. Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful fall weather! It is in the upper 70's to low 80's here this past week and mostly blue skies. Love it!!  Enjoy the card and I hope you are being crafty for Halloween! Thanks for looking!

Don't Croak

Hello everyone!
 So sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, but I've been busy making cards for birthdays and thank you's and Halloween and Harvest! Then about a week ago my Dad ended up in the hospital for a very brief visit, and this week Hubby and I have been getting ready for some out of town relatives! So, looking at the calendar I decided I needed to share the Halloween cards first since it is just right around the corner. I got on a kick using core'dinaions papers, embossing them, and sanding them to use as my background. This one had a green core which morphed into frogs and little green spiders. Then I wanted to use a stamp set that I purchased last year ,and that led to the jar full of pickled toad (which every good witch knows is a staple on the pantry shelf), hehe! Anyway, I hope you enjoy and thanks for peeking!

Supplies-  Pickled toad stamp: CTMH "Magic Potions", Front frog and inside sentiment: Cricut "Mini Monsters", Inside frog: Cricut "Four Legged Friends", Toad jar: S.U. Framelits " Cannery Set", Embossing folder: Paper Studio "Spider Webs", Spiders: Studio G punch.
