I think this doodlebug design "Halloween Parade" is one of the cutest collections of Halloween papers I have seen. The colors are bright but not gaudy. I think will be my last Halloween card this season and will be in the mail tomorrow. I used MFT pierced stax circles and squares and blueprints 1 for this card. The background was embossed with new Stampin Up embossing folder.

I love the Vintage Christmas from MME. The patterned paper really lent itself to this sketch. I used Blueprints 5 & 6, flower medley and leafy flourish die-namics. I used whipped cream felt and sponged the edges to give it the vintage look.

I needed a birthday card for a male friend who is a golfer. The stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle fit perfectly and was colored with copics. I used border die from MFT as well as the pierced rectangle stax. The paper is from Webster's Pages. I think he liked it.

Here is another of my "thank you" cards. I have almost finished with them, but have enjoyed trying out different sketches. This was my first time coloring the chalkboard and since it turned out so well, my mind is racing with other ideas. I used the new pierced tags from MFT as backgrounds, the PI stamp from last month and papers from Webster's Pages "recorded" collection. Her dress was paper pieced with scraps from my stash.

I have so many blessings in my life recently, that I need many thank you cards. I loved this sketch for one of them. The sentiment is from MFT and the papers are Webster's pages "Recorded" collection. It has some fun papers but you know how I love dots, stripes and plaids, so this one was my first choice.

This card is for my daughter-in-law's birthday this week. I used the We R memory keepers chalkboard collection again.  This color combination has become one of my favorites. I had to take a sample to Sparkle n Sprinkle to get a matching embossing powder, Arctic from the cosmic line. I also used the "Polka Dot" greetings stamp from MFT which comes with the coordinating die. The rest of the card was cut using the Blueprints 5 also from MFT. I hope she likes it!

Good morning! I am late getting this posted. We are doing some major remodeling and craft time has been hard to find. I did start early, but had a hard time getting finished to my liking. I love the background paper from We R memory keepers collection "Happy Campers".  There are some very cute camping and travel selections but also plaids, dots, stripes, etc.  I found the burlap in my stash which matched the blue just beautifully. The tag die-namics was perfect for the sentiment from MFT "Clearly Sentimental about Art". The circle was cut with my favorite pierced circle stax also from MFT. The wildflowers die is from TE. It made my heart happy when it all finally came together!
