Autumn Froggy

Sorry about the blury picture--not sure what happened ? This is 2 challenges in 1. There were actually 3 challenges today for the Limited Supply Challenge, but you could combine them into 1 or 2 cards if you wanted to. I made an Autumn "scene" using 3 stamps (pumpkin from Fall Whimsy ; frog from Unfrogettable ; and the little lilac stamp from Watercolor Minis ). I used an animal stamp that doesn't usually go with a Halloween/Autumn theme to make an Autumn/Fall card. The one I didn't do is make it into a Tent Topper, which I plan to make a seperate Autumn Tent Topper card later this evening. Let's face it, some of us don't have all day to sit in our craft room and do challenges!! Life gets in the way. OK... gotta admit, I've spent almost the entire day with just one of my daughters and I've really enjoyed it. I may get to the 3rd challenge and I may not. My kids come first ;) Oh Ya, forgot to tell you.... I stamped this on watercolor pape

Pretty Polka Dotted Flowers

I love this set. Soo easy to make a pretty card. I stamped the Doodle This set in black Stazon ink, and then just filled in and outlined with SU! markers! That's it! The white dots around outside edge are done with the Signo white gel pen. I LOVE this card! Inspiration came from Ashley . Thanks for looking :)  Happy Crafting!


I made 10 of these monogram thank you notes, also for my niece, to go along with the 15 others from yesterday. I tried to do a leather look on the boot, but it's really hard to see it in this picture. I found this gorgeous blue paper (K & Co.) from my local scrapbook store. I used my paisley background stamp in Regal Rose on Pretty in Pink c.s. and faux stitched with Night of Navy. The circle saying is from Riveting set and the boot is from Yeehaw. I paper-pieced the brown part of the boot and added Dazzling Diamonds on the star. Here's a pic of the 10 all tied up and ready to go.  I also found this gorgeous vase in her wedding colors, so I just had to get it for her. Actually, my youngest daughter begged me to get it and let that be her present :) It's a small scrifice, Lol!!

I Cut up my Wedding Veil

Another Dirty Dare Challenge: to make an "Elegant" card. After seeing Dawn's blog with her CUTE bride card , I knew I just HAD to make one for my niece who's getting married in 3 weeks.  The skirt has tulle over it--actually it isn't that stiff tulle, it's the sheer stuff (what I had on my veil). For the bodice, after cutting it out, I ran it through my cuttlebug with the "Textiles" folder. Then I went over the puffy parts with a 2-way glue pen and added Dazzling Diamonds. Very sparkly. I also sewed a cute border all around the pink layer, and the prima flowers on bouquet have glitter white brads in centers. :) Oh yes...the necklace is made of beads that came off of my headpiece from when I got married! Just a little added sentimental tidbit. :) I just realized as I went to type in a label for this that it doesn't use any STAMPS!! What do I put it under?? LOL.
