This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Fall theme thank you....

I love the colors of fall! I find myself reaching for them a lot. This is a simple design that could be altered to fit a lot of thank you occasions by changing out the small leaf embellishment. I am going to try that and will post when I do. Feel free to copy my design and give it a try.

 Supplies: Stampin' Up! "So Many Thanks" (single) leaf from "Day of Gratitude" set. Crumb Cake mat, Pebble textured (CB embossing folder)  cut to 3  3/4  x  4  3/4 in. Very Vanilla for Image  cut to 2  1/2  x  3  1/4 inches. Cajun Craze mat  cut to 3 1/4  x  4 1/4 inches. Ink: Stampin' Up!  Early Espresso. Striped Ribbon from American Crafts. (Thank you, Susie!)

Sending hugs.....

I think the best kind of card is one that is totally unexpected, don't you? Such a nice thing to get something in the mail besides advertising or bills to pay. Here is one of those all occasion cards that we need for just those times. I really need to stamp some more of these.

Stampin' Up! products: Very Vanilla and Early Espresso card stock. Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes and Elements of Style set. SU rub-ons, Pretty In Pink button, Dotted pattern paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper pack. Inks: Early Espresso, Pretty In Pink and Crumb Cake. Medium Jewelry Tag punch. Other supplies: embroidery thread, brown satin ribbon and Spica Glitter pens.

Love this little cutie....

I love this little girl digital image! She is so much fun to color. She also reminds me of my youngest granddaughter, Olivia, so of course I had to get her. I think the background could use a little color and my chalking is so pale I don't even know if you can see it. I finally bought the Copic air brush starter set but I haven't had time to give it a try yet. If you know of any air brush tutorials, leave me a comment and thanks for visiting my blog!

Happy Birthday stamp from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. Other supplies: Emma and the Butterfly digital image from "Fred She Said",  Copic markers, Nestibilities dies. GP white card stock.
