Autumn Days

This is one of those stamp sets that I have mixed feelings about. Birds are not really my style but I really like the elements of this stamp set - more specifically the pine cones :) So I bought this set use for a specific Christmas Card. Didn't think I would ever use the pheasant. So I have not made the Christmas Card yet and used the pheasant stamp :)

We went to a stamping event this weekend and made 24 cards on Friday night. Well I should say there were 24 cards to make but most of mine came home unassembled. Will be working on that over the next little while. Here are two of the cards designed for that night using the Wandering Words set.

Wild About You Note Cards

Okay - I am currently out of town - surprise - surprise :) Anyway I was looking at what I had scheduled to post and I had nothing posting after October 1st so I started searching to see if I had anything on my computer that I could post until I get home to take pictures of some other projects. So I found these cute little Wild About You note cards. I did not make them. I think I took pictures of them when I was visiting my friend Stacy in Idaho. We are celebrating my mom's birthday on Sunday and Angie and I made 50 of the previously posted Wild About You cards and now I think - we can make a bunch of these real quick and add it to the others. Then my mom should be set for the year :)

Big on Christmas

I saw this card that Gretchen made and I just loved it. I bought this set a couple of years ago and thought this would be a good time to mount it :) I made two of these cards. The first one was using the 2 way glue pen and Dazzling Diamond. I must admit I have glitter everywhere. I will be wearing it for weeks. And I am sure that anyone who comes within 50 yards of me is sure to be glittered as well :) So on the second card I inked up the snow piece in versamark and then covered it with Irridescent Ice. I like that much better as it is not as messy. If I imake this card again I would use the Shimmery White paper for the snowflake and use the Irridescent Ice for the snow piece.
