Happy Fall (TSC0928)

It's been a while since I've posted anything because I've had a lot of pain in my left hand. It's made it tough for me to create anything. I've been pretty busy with my foster child, my mom and my son lately as well. I will have to have surgery on my hand in a few weeks. It will take some time to recover from that, so I will be MIA for a while. I made a card for the Twisted Sistahs Challenge though. It's to make a fall themed card with fall colors (Halloween, Thanksgiving or just a fall theme). I CASEd the scarecrow from Lauri Randolph's blog. Hers was done a little over a year ago. Mine is Pumpkin Pie with a layer of dp. To make the scarecrow, I used Lauri's instructions and description except that I used raffia instead of Linen Thread, and my dp's are different. Thanks for stopping by!!

Santa Wishes

I haven't been making as many cards as I used to because I've been so busy with life. My foster child has lots of appointments, so I'm on the run a lot. This week, we have appointments every day except Friday. Anyway, I've been cooking a lot, too. I've been trying out some new recipes just to make things more interesting for everyone. I'm having a Stamp-a-Stack this month, so I need to get busy designing those cards! We will make ten cards; two each of five designs. I don't have much mojo, but I think it will come back as I go along. I love this hostess set from the Holiday Catalog. It's called "Christmas Wishes". I stamped Santa with Cherry Cobbler onto a piece of backing paper from some Framelits and then cut him out. The base card is Cherry Cobbler, and the dp is unknown. I just found it in my Christmas papers. The die cut piece was done with the Apothecary Accents large die out of Garden Green. Santa was popped up, and Dazzling Details was added to the eyebrows and mustache. I will add the other cards as I design them. Thanks for stopping by!!

The Magical Monday challenge over at "There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes" is called "Things with Wings." I used the Paper Cupcakes image called, "Aloha". It's such a cute image and works so well for a friendship type card. I made mine an easel card. I used Pretty In Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White card stocks and some Pretty In Pink polka dot DSP. The sentiment ("Friend") is from "Mixed Medley" which is a hostess set, and I punched it out with the new 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch. I used MS punches for the flowers. We hope you will join in on this challenge. You don't have to use a Paper Cupcakes image, but we hope you do. Thanks for stopping by!!
