I don't know about you, but I am really ready for cooler weather and Autumn to arrive.  It's my favorite time of year.  Next week I will be traveling to Oregon for a visit with my daughter and son-in-law, and I can't wait!  Leaves changing colors, wood smoke in the air, some rain and hiking in the woods!  AHHHH yes, I am ready!  

So in honor of my favorite season I have been busy with my Thanksgiving cards.  This one was done with a Cuttlebug folder for the embossing, then some leaves stamped on a lighter shade of paper, a bit of ribbon and a rhinestone sentiment from Micheal's.  It came together pretty well for such a simple design.

Entered in the following challenges:

It's time for another FAB sketch for our Card Sketch Tuesday!  This week we have a wonderful sketch designed by of our Tutorial Coordinator, Diana Gonzalez, and it's a really FUN one!

 AND, please welcome our sponsor for this challenge, SQUIGGLEFLY!  What GREAT DIGIS they offer!  Be sure to take a look at what they have, there is something for every occasion.  I just love the digi I selected!  It's called "Beehive", too adorable!

 Here is the result of combining this super sketch with the adorable digi!  My faithful Copic's did all the coloring, the left edge under the image was done with a Martha Stewart border punch and I added a touch of distressed ink on the edges. Then I added some ribbons, sunflowers and little stick on bees.

So hop on over to Frosted Designs and join us for a fun card sketch and a chance to win some great digis by Squigglefly!  I can't wait to see your creations with this great sketch!

Happy weekend all, hope you are having a fun and relaxing one.  I have been busy making projects for the church sale in December.  Today I really accomplished a lot!  I made three trinket boxes and a half dozen cards, whew!  I like this first box so much I want to make another one for myself!  It matches my colors and goodies in my bedroom.  I used some distress inks to give it a bit of a vintage look, especially on the lace trim and roses.

I call this one the "Cupid Box".

I didn't take pictures of the third box, but will try to soon!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Aloha.

I'M PRAYING FOR YOU (Yes Dan, I am!)

Coincidence is a funny thing!  This digi stamp at Robyn Fetish really was one for me.  I was wandering around out in "blog land" looking at all your fabulous creations, and I came across a FAB blog of a very talented gal named Tammy who used this ADORABLE digi.  I followed her link to Robyn Fetish and bought it!  I made this card and not five minutes after I finished it I got an e-mail from Ann, my head DT for our Card Sketch Tuesday at Frosted Designs.  She was sending us digis to choose from for an upcoming challenge.  And much to my surprise there was THIS digi!  (I decided not to use it for the challenge because I scrap lifted the design layout from where I saw it, and it was not original by me.)  ANYHOW, I thought it was a funny coincidence none the less!

All coloring was done with my Copics, the ovals with the sentiment were cut with my Cuttlebug, the square behind the digi was an SVG file cut with my Cricut.  Then I added the buttons with the thread and called it done.  Be sure to check out the digis at Robyn Fetish, they are GREAT!  I saw several that I am going to HAVE to HAVE!!!  AND visit Tammy's blog, her work is amazing!

I just adore the character Stella from Bugaboo Stamps.  Well, here is her counterpart, Gus!  I have an elderly uncle who has a birthday soon, and being an avid golfer with a great sense of humor, I know he will love this.  He's probably heard every golf joke ever, but I couldn't resist this when I saw it.  I laughed out loud, I hope he does too!

The background paper is from a book of paper I recently found in an old bookstore.  It's called "Papers Papers Papers" by Crafthouse Press.  I colored the digi with my Copic's, mounted it on some Bazzil card stock then put in the eyelets.  The sentiment is accented with a small golf ball on tee charm.

Aloha all!  So glad you stopped by.  I am SO excited!  Today is the posting of my 1st card as a DT for Frosted Designs!  Come join in on all the fun for our Sketch Along Tuesday Card Challenge!  If you need some inspiration you are sure to be inspired by our amazing Design Team, what a wonderful and creative group they are!  I am so happy to be in this group!  This is the lovely sketch we are working with this week designed by our great Layout Sketch Coordinator, Debbie Burns:

Its beauty is its simplicity that has endless possibilities!  Here is what I did with the sketch:

I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder then added the ribbon, circle with the flowers and LOTS of pearls.  I tried to keep it simple, but a bit glamorous.  I hope I succeeded!

So get your creative juices flowing and come join us at Frosted Designs for our Sketch Along Tuesday Card Challenge.  See you there!

I made this card for my daughter a while back and forgot to post it.  Her job gets pretty stressful and I wanted to cheer her up during an especially hectic time.  The computer parts are from my old laptop that I "murdered!"  (never mind! - long story)  The stamp is Crabby Cathy from Bugaboo Stamps, she is too cute!  It was colored with Copic's and mounted on a scallop circle cut out with my Cuttlebug.

Another birthday card for a friend.  Seems like I am making a lot of them lately!  This one was fun because it was the first time I used this set of stamps.  They are from a set of six stamps by Stampin Up, and I found them in a second hand store in their original box for $6.00!!!  Sure been finding some good bargains lately too!  I embossed the background paper with my Cuttlebug, colored the images with my Copic's, used a bit of pink paper behind them, then added the bow, pearls and yellow Stickles on the candles for some sparkle!  It's simple and tailored.
