Happy Halloween

Its Halloween!  And like Target, Kohls, and Walmart I have already moved on!  I have moved on so far that I am done with Christmas and on to Valentine's day!   Hehe!  Not really my Christmas cards are barely even started.  I made nothing for Halloween this year.  My kid is off track and the other one is in jr. high.   Not even a token offering for the teachers at school.  Ah well.  Here's a love card for you though.  Just patterned paper circles, bling, and a WMS sentiment.  Hope you like!

Mitten Love

Hi there friends!  I have a Christmas card or Holiday card for you today.  I used stamps from The Cat's Pajamas.  Stamped in momento black and colored with copic marker.  I embossed using spellbinders rectangles.  Added some stickles in diamond and called it done. 

I hope all of you on the East Coast are staying safe and dry.  Its a beautiful day here in California.  Supposed to get up to 79 today.  My son is off track (year round school) so today (I have Mondays off) we will be having a little mommy and son time.  Going to finally go get some Halloween pumpkins, see if we can find our Halloween lights, look for some little stuffed pets he collects at the store, and then it will be time to pick up my jr. higher from school.    After that its off and running for the rest of the week.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sunflowers on Red

Good Morning friends!  Its another of those Papercrafts rejects.  I love this card.  I thought they would love it too- wrong!  Ah well.  Anyway here it is.  Papertrey Ink's supersized Autumn Abundance.  It has another name- something like sunflowers.... again too lazy to go look. Dark chocolate ink, copic coloring, patterned paper from some little company whose name escapes me but its not one of the big dogs.  Anyway there you have it- completely useless information!   Thanks for stopping in.  Those of you who left me comments yesterday- thank you they made my day.  I still don't know what I am doing with the blog- I have learned not make rash decisions- but I thank you for reading it, or at least looking at the pictures.  :)

Hello Birds

Have a little card for you today featuring Hero Arts stamps (sorry no clue of the set- too lazy to go look).  The Hello sentiment is from PTI Fillable frames.  Assorted patterned paper from stash.  White gel pen, black copic liner.  Thats about it!  Thanks for stopping in.  I know the updates have been sporadic.  I am toying with the idea of no longer blogging.  I hate that I can't keep it up like I used to but I have so much going on this always goes to the back burner.  Anyway... until next time.

Notebook Gift Ensemble

Card I made for my principal for Boss's Day.  I used PTI's Frame It and Acorn Abundance.  Inks are Limeade, Canyon Clay, Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate (old version), Kraft
Gift Set Wrapped in a glassine bag.  I added a tag and some twine to finish it off.  A little bling on the tag as well.

Notebook and tag detail.  I love the little stamp on the back.  That is from a Hero Arts set that I picked up on clearance at my LSS.  I have used it many times in the last few days!  Thanks for stopping in today!

Cute Little Rejects

Yeah, rejected again.  Paper Crafts better be careful or I might develop a complex!  LOL.  Today I have some adorable Lawn Fawn rejects.  I personally love them and will be putting them on my mantle this year. 
I used Lawn Fawn's Sweet Christmas set to whip up these little gingerbread houses and gingerbread men.  Everyone got the 3D treatment.  I made my own little template for the house.  It took a lot of futzing around but it was worth it.  The faces of the house, gingers, and tree are all colored with copics.

Papercrafts Rejects

I submitted 12 cards to the last round.  All rejected- boohoo.  The good news is I have some blog fodder now.  First up is a Thanksgiving card.  Seriously, do people really give Thanksgiving cards?  I know I don't.  I made it because I thought it might narrow my odds!  LOL!  Didn't work!  What will I do with it now?  Maybe I will send it to my mom.  Would love to her see her face when she opened it thinking, "What the heck, who sends their mom a Thanksgiving card?".  Anyway, here it is:
I used Echo Park papers, PTI cardstock, dark chocolate ink and some hero arts bling.  I love the script on the sentiment even if I do find the occasion kind of funny.  The stamp set is Falling Acorns from PTI.  They have dies but I don't have them.  My acorns are hand cut.  Thanks for coming by today!
