More of that Orange & brown. And more of the Side steps to decorate.

Two posts in one day. I used the Spellbinders side step, and I think the leaves are a Sizziz die. I had them cut out. Nice! I will leave this short and sweet & go take more pictures!
Thanks for looking,
OH OH, just 248 pieces of orange paper to use. Since it is fall, halloween, thanksgiving & we do about 12-15  cards  at this time of year, it should only take me about 16 years to finish it up. That doesn't count the brown or lime. I need help! Ohhhhh. Here are my side- step cards for this year.
The side- step is a Spellbinders die, the Cupcakes, ghosts, witches legs, are from a Cottage Cutz die that I got last year. The big spider web is from Cherry Lynn .  The spooky & boo are stickers!
Add  one Center Step. The die is Cherry Lynn, the rest is pretty much stickers.

Good Morning! Suprise, it is raining here. I did have more pictures to photograph, but that will wait until tomorrow. Maybe I should look at the forecast. It never rains here enough! So, for today I will show you some cards for the nursing home.

The large opening or 'ornament' is cut on the front of the card. I used either Spellbinder nestabilities Heirloom Ornament 2010 & 2011. It depends on the shape. I used the Holiday Heirloom Reflections for the next 3 cuts. The silver, then the teal and last the silver filigree. I used the small corners from the Marvelous Squares set. The inside is another ornament and a Christmas Verse. Almost forgot the card base is 51/2 x 51/2. That large ornament is really close!
Thanks for looking,

Another of my many loves & blessings is Photoshop. Yes I love to manipulate, move and maybe mutilate some photos! PS. I scan absolutely everything too. So this technique is from Shadowhouse Creations. His website is absolutely awesome. Here is the link
This is the WHITE WALK,  the step by step way. Always good to know how to manualy do something. Certainly gives you an appreciation for an ACTION.  
Original print.
Love the effect, yes it is different, but a good different. Took me 20 minutes ... 8 steps.

Shadowhouse creations offered an Action for the White Walk. This last picture took all of 3 seconds! Take a look and Enjoy!

It has been an exciting month! It will be a month tomorrow since we moved into our house. We have unpacked & bought alot of things.The refrigerator and stove is sort of a necessity! That was fun for me, as we had never picked one.  We bought other things like a wall mount for the TV, a couch (that was completely unplanned), but I loved the 12 pillows and the orange and prussian blue colors! Gave the leather couches to Diana. She has MS and she desperately needed a loveseat with a place for her pepsi. Hopefully, it will be easier for her. Al is working on the garage now. What else?? Just want to mention that we had the best realtor! If you are in Las Vegas, or Henderson Nv. consider Joanie Bunker. She is with Realty one. She is so personable, and efficient.

We used the same company to move us 3 times in the last 4 years, and we had issues this time. When we tried to resolve the issues, the office person was extremely rude. Warrens homework. One of the google comments was that the lady in the office was rude. So true. I am glad we won't be moving any time soon, but then we won't recommend them. With all this out of the way, let me include some of the cards I made while unpacking! Al did put up my the shelves in the 'stamp room' pretty quickly!

All these cards are made with the set 'Abby' Spring or something like that. It is from Simon Says stamps. And yes, it is too cute!
