Something a Little Different

I just love this set--Kimono Kids! I made two cards with bright colors, which I will share later. But then I decided to take a little different approach. This one was so much quicker to make and I just love the way it turned out.
The base is Crumb Cake sponged with Early Espresso. The DP is from the Woodland Walk pack. I added some ribbon and a vintage brad and presto--we are done!
Thanks for looking!

Christmas Goodie Bag

It is hard to believe that October will be here this week! With the change in the weather, I have found myself reaching for my Thanksgiving and Christmas stamp sets. I love to give baked goods to my friends at Christmas and this little bag will be great for giving six of my homemade cookies! Mmmm.....think I need to get to the kitchen and mix up a batch right now!
I used the fancy favor bag die to cut out the bag. I added a strip of black at the top so the bag could be a little taller. The bottom of the bag uses the Newsprint DP. The red rickrack is from a spool that I bought over 20 years ago. I do believe that I will NEVER use all of it! The tag was made with the Tags til Christmas set. That is a set that I plan to use many times for the holidays.
Hope you like this little treat bag. Now off to work so I can go home and do some baking!

Christmas is Coming!

Don't you just love this little guy! After the long hot summer we have experienced, flying down a snow covered hill sounds so refreshing. The weather has finally broken and we are enjoying some fall weather--nice even though it is rainy!
This card uses a base of Baja Breeze that has been embossed with the new Northern Flurry embossing folder. The designer paper is from the Candy Cane Christmas pack and that luscious ribbon is the Blushing Bride Stitched Poly Ribbon. Last but not least, don't you just love this little sledding bunny from the Merry Crittermas set! I will be pulling this set out many times this Christmas season!
Hope you have enjoyed this little flurry of winter. Happy Tuesday!

I Love Vintage!

Okay, so I love the vintage look and I think the folks at SU do too. This is another of the wonderful Christmas sets in the Holiday Mini this year. I can't wait to make more cards using this set call Welcome Christmas.

Here I used a Crumb Cake base, Basic Black and Very Vanilla layers with the music print from the Newsprint DP. A splash of Cherry Cobbler and there you have it!

Happy Monday everyone! We are finally getting some rain here in NC! Thanks you LORD!

Greeting Card Kids

Today I have two takes on the Greeting Card Kids set. I just love this set because the vintage look appeals to me so much. The first card is done in Melon Mambo, Black and Garden Green. The second one uses Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green. One is a little more shabby chic and the other more classic vintage. But, I love them both!

I'm Back

Actually, I haven't gone anywhere. But it has been way too long since I posted here. The summer just kind of got away with me. Here it is the end of September--where has this year gone? Of course you wouldn't know it was September by looking at our temperatures here in NC. Today is supposed to be in the high 90's! I am so ready for cooler weather!

Today I am posting a card that I made for a lady in my church who wanted a "Fall" card for her secret pal. I thought of rust colored chyrsanthemums and put this little beauty together.

Stamps: Watercolor Trio, Perfect Punches
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Night of Navy, Very Vanilla
Ink: Cajun Craze, Wild Wasabi, Night of Navy
Extras: Curly Label Punch and Die, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, 1 1/4 inch striped grosgrain ribbon in Night of Navy

I like how this turned out and may have to make another one for my stash!

Have a great Friday and week-end!
