Fall Card

No, this is not the Fall card. My husband Steve and I went to LA this past weekend to celebrate his birthday. This was taken at the La Brea Tar Pits facility. If you ever get a chance to come to CA, put this on your places to visit. A very interesting and educational.

Now on to the card. I did get home mid afternoon and had a chance to play along with the new MOJO361 sketch. I did very little stamping on this. Just the sentiment. The leaves are a non-SU product. Although, I did emboss them in the SU Woodgrain EF before adding them to the card.

 That's it for today. I hope you get to do something CRAFTY  today, my friends!

Wondrous Wreath Fall Card

Stamped inside using For All Things stamp
Today I am posting a card I created using the beautiful Wonderous Wreath stamp with coordinating framelits. (15% off if you buy the bundle) and an older Sweet Sketch Sunday Sketch (#206) This stamp set is a showcased as a Christmas stamp in the New Holiday 2014-2015 Catalog, but who doesn't love wreaths for any season of the year?

I chose to use it for a fall inspired card using Pistachio Pudding as my main color. I really love the softness of this color and combining it with Mossy Meadow and Tangelo Twist gave it some Fall brightness.

Make it a great Holiday Monday and try to get into your craft room and do something CRAFTY my friends.

Paper Pumpkin - My take

Just a quick post this Friday morning. We are going to Los Angeles this weekend for my hubby's birthday. I have wash to do, a dog to shampoo, packing and a few projects sitting on my desk to finish up. I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday weekend, the Summers last Hooray.

I played around with the August Paper Pumpkin kit and this is the card I created. I certainly see more possibilities in using the provided supplies, but this it for today. 

I'm not all that sure if I like how it came together. I even went to bed trying to decide if I would even post it, but I said I would put a project up today, SO here it is.

I think I went a little overboard with the DOTS. I just got carried away. I was having so much fun stamping that little round dot stamp on paper. I know, it takes very little to amuse me.

I would like some honest feedback on this card. So if you get a chance during this busy holiday weekend, drop me a comment and tell me what you think. I promise not to go into my bedroom and boo woo. :)

 That's about it for today. Have a wonderful weekend with family and friends and take time to do something CRAFTY my friends!
