Autumn

Here's a project that I enjoyed working on.  It started with her turquoise hair which was inspired by Marika!  Then I decided to take this stamp, Autumn from Little Darlings, with an autumn theme, and convert it to something more generic.  So I skipped on stamping the leaves and colored the rake to resemble a broom instead.

The card also features the Happy Days Tab Sentiments, with accompanied chipboard embellishment, and the Cutters Baggie 'n Tag, tag only, which was a left over from another project that I refurbished. The many ribbons on the tag was also inspired by Marika - thanks Marika for the ideas!  Finally I added some faux stitching with my marker and a few pink acrylic dots.

Hope you're having a great weekend and thank for stopping by my blog today!



Updated to include a detailed picture of the little button nose per Zoe's request.  :)

Celeste Amberglow Celebrate

The next challenge is starting at LMMS and this time it's all about circles!  We want to see you create with circles - whether that's a circle shapes card, using circles or making circles.  You can probably stretch it but as long as you have plenty of circles then we'll let it slide.  LOL

I pulled out a project that I made last week that seemed to fit.  The balloons are circles, right?  Then the polka dots on the paper, the circles on the diecut flower and circle embellishments.  (I know it's a stretch but hay, it's a card to share and that's the main point.  He he he)  The glowing yellow circle in the background is a technique I learned from my friend Zoe.

This project uses these mentionable products:

Swings 'n Slides Coconut Shy

It's been one of those days where I finally get everything done that I "needed" to get done but nothing that I really "wanted" to get done.  Sigh.  So this will be a short post but I wanted to share the project I created with the Swings 'n Slides images that everyone helped me with.  I have saved the color combos on this one too but have since lost it.  Boo.  :(  However, if I ever find them then I'll come back in and update this post to add them.  In the mean time... enjoy!

For this project I used these stamps:
