Happy Saturday Oct. 12th!

Pretty morning! Burrr... Yes, we are in 'burr' mode for us. Its 71 in the house. This morning I will just stay wrapped up and share some the Christmas cards that I did this summer. Below is a die from Lawn Fawn called 'string of lights'. I did show this last year. The first three are copic colored and finished with glossy accents.


                  The next ones are with glitter card stock. Like that best.


                               Next are my 'go to ' scrap cards. Then collage cards
                                  

         Next is a Spellbinders 'wreath 'die that I almost gave away. Turns out it is really nice, prettier in person than in the photo!

                     Paper from older Couture Creations package. Enjoyed the different color combinations.
         

This one is from Ali, thus that explains why I actually did the card upside down! I didn't have a reference to what it was supposed to look like. I found it, and the stars were on the bottom and someone made a baby card. Pretty cute that way!


                       Stamperia paper  pack. Love these images.
Thanks for looking!
Have a great Saturday,
Mary

Oct. 8th Tues

Good morning! Today I  want to share a couple cards. The set is by Altenew and the flowers are called 'Wallpaper Flower'. Doesn't take much introduction as the stamp is beautiful!
                               I usually have extras cut and ready to use
  
Wallpaper Flower stamp with Altenew gold stripe washi. I have shown this when we featured the washi tape.

            I used copic markers on the above, then the next card below was my first try at 'no line watercolor' . Love the pink!!




                    I felt over confident because the pink card was so nice, but then, the blue one was awful. Finished it up with copics.
                          
Another pink card, loved this one. Lydia, (from Altenews) inspiration. She shows a way to stamp the leaves/vines in the right place, then add the flowers.  Check out  her videos.
 Thanks for looking today!
Mary

Saturday in the fall...pretty

It is a pretty day. We walked later this morning & it was perfect at 61degrees.That was after we came home and picked up another leash. We got to the park  (3 minutes from the house), and found our little psycho Lucy had chewed right through her extension leash. She did that while sitting in the backseat of the car for that 3 minute ride. Lucy Lou.
That said, it is a pretty day, so I came home and took these pictures. This is the  'Flippin' Awesome die from Lawn Fawn. So much fun. I found I don't have a lot of small scale stamps. For the fall themed one, I used the 'Flyin' By set from Hello Bluebird stamps.




Yes, I need words or image on this 'pull out' piece. On the Christmas card, I used Snow Play from Hello Bluebird



            Next one is a mix of images. Waffle flower and Paper Rose.



                                         


                                      Yes, I had fun making these.

                                          Thanks for looking!

Sunday Afternoon

Beautiful Sunday .... Went to an Orchard today. Had some yummy doughnuts, pear cider, kettle corn & caramel apples with sprinkles!
We were there by 8:30am this morning and half of Las Vegas was already there! Very well organized with three lots to park in and clear directions to either picking or eating areas! 
\




       They provide the carts for (pumpkins, squash and more.

                     Almost forgot about the hayride! Bad pic, but  
                    you get the idea! Nice family day.

Thanks to Gilcrease Orchards for a nice morning.

 Happy Sunday,
Mary
