I Need Fall

Hi stampers!  I'm so ready for all things fall.  Too bad it's hot as heck here right now.  It rained Tuesday morning, well stormed actually, just when it was time to take Ian to school.  That was fun!  So then it was HOT and MUGGY all day. YUCK-Y!

At least I was channeling some fall over the weekend when I made this card!

I LOVE the Seasonal Lantern set but I have to say, it intimidates me a little bit.  There's just so many things you can do with it so I had to sit down and just play with it.  I decided to cut out the lantern here instead of stamp it.

I made my background by putting some ink from my pads (pumpkin and tangerine) on a clear block with my aqua painter then I just placed my paper on top. I've shown you this before.  After it was dry, I flicked some ink on it.

And can we talk about these colors for a second?  Tranquil tide, fresh fig, lemon lime twist, tangerine tango, and pumpkin pie are just fabulous together!

If I make enough fall cards maybe it will cool off!  I wish!

Happiness In A Cup

Hi stampers!  I like coffee.  I never used to although I always loved the smell...and I got to smell it a lot since my mom drank cups and cups of it (and does still) black (yuck).  I've always loved hot tea (it's my dad's thing) but coffee is a newer thing for me.  Starbucks is happy about that I suppose.  Anyway, I knew I had to have this set when I saw it but shame on me, I haven't used it!

I only wish I could actually have a cup of coffee with many of my good friends.  Hopefully I'll make a few in Oklahoma I can share a cup with!

I went pretty monochromatic here with just the green and a pop of black and tiny bit of crumb cake.  

Happy stamping!

Mailable Monday - Autumn Neighborhood

Hi stampers!  It doesn't feel much like fall here in Oklahoma, it's still in the 90's.  I'm assured that it day :-)  I really love fall and I'm excited to experience it here when ever that may be.  I'm also interested to see when the leaves change.  I'm sure it will be later than back home.  Hopefully I can time  a trip to see my mom with the changing of the leaves.  Until then, I'll just make my own like with this card.

I've been meaning to use this set with fall colors for the trees!  It's perfect!  The house is tranquil tide but I stamped off once.  I really like the combo of cajun craze, pumpkin pie, and tranquil tide!  I forget how much I like cajun craze and then fall comes around...

Today was a lovely, rainy day, so maybe it really is fall here.  It was perfect for hanging out at home after church and stamping!  I got quite a few things done but my pictures may be a little dark :-)

Fab Friday 121

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  Thank goodness it's Friday!  It's been the longest week ever it feels like.  Ian's been just "off" all week and then Wednesday while I was making my Fab Friday card, because he was napping SO WELL...I found him after his nap covered in barf.  UGH!  I should have known something was coming because he hasn't been napping well and that's usually his tell but I wasn't prepared for THAT!  Anyway, add that to a few other things this week and I'm just done!  Bring on the weekend!  And a new challenge at Fab Friday!

Big thanks to one of our fabulous team members, for making some of the logos for me while I try to get my program up and running again!

At least I kind of love the card I came up with!  Just don't look too close.  I had a really hard time getting things lined up straight, lol!  I must have been a little off with Ian!

I used the Merry Patterns host set which you can get FREE right now!  The sentiment is from Hearts Come Home.  It was a perfect sentiment for those candles!  Don't forget you can mix and match your sets.  I tend to forget that as well sometimes!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along with us!

Happy stamping!
