More Fall Cards

Here is another Fall card we made at the SU party I had. All the products are from SU and we used the glossy white paper. First we stamped the leaves with VersaMark and then we used embossing powder and embossed it. We then dabbed the tri color ink on and here we ended up with a really pretty card. The picture really doesn't do it justice. I have been slowing down
on my cards lately because I have been sooooooo busy with life. Tonight will be the only night I'll be home this week. Thursday is parent conferences at my school and they last until 9:00 at night but the good thing is that we are off school on Friday. Yipee!! The weekend of Nov. 9th can't come soon enough. My wonderful scrapping group will be going up to Michigan to Michele's (Thoughts of a CardMaking Scrapbooker) father's summer home. We scrap, stamp and eat and drink until our hearts content. We have an awesome time. Most of us stay in pjs most of the time and if the
weather is nice we manage to take a walk along the lake. It really is a great time. Anyway, what is everyone going to be for Halloween? I spent a good part of this weekend painting black dots on 8 white long sleeve t-shirts. The teachers at school and myself are going to be dalmations. By the last dot I painted I was seeing spots when I went to bed. I'll try to get a good pictures and post it. Well, have a great Halloween week!!

It's Pumpkin Time

Last Friday night I hosted a SU party at my friend Lynda's house. This was my favorite card
we made. The pumpkin is popped up with popdots. All the supplies are from SU but I can't remember the names of the colors. This picture doesn't do the card justice. This Saturday several of us are going to an all day crop so I really need to get back to my scrapping. I will
try to squeeze in a card or two but now I have some scrapping to catch up on.
Have a great week end and thanks for looking.

How Sweet It Is!

This stamp set just came and I got busy right away. It is the How Sweet It Is from MFT. The pink paper is regal rose from SU and the brown paper is also from SU. The blue is tempting turquoise and the brown is chocolate chip. I used the flower cuttlebug folder. The saying is popped up with a popup and the ribbon came from M.
Now I feel like eating some chocolate (but of course I always do). Hope everyone has a great week and hopefully they weather will stay this way (70's and no rain).

Calling all Girlz!

Another card from my TAC stamp set. I just
love this set. The kids are so cute and you can
do so much with it. The red paper is from SU and the striped paper is from DCWV and the
ribbon is from the dollar bin at Target. I used
the heart cuttlebug folder. I use this stamp set quite a bit on my school papers also. Just let me know when you get tired of seeing cards from this set. Tomorrow I am hosting an SU party at my friend's house. It should be a ton of fun because all we ever do when we get together is laugh. I'll
try to get some pictures to post. Anyway, have a great weekend and thanks for looking!

Casey and the girls were on their way to the Homecoming dance. Casey is the one with the green on her dress. She said many of the dresses this year looked like this. They look much older than 15, don't they?! Everyone had a great time!

Baseball Kidz

This card was made for my nephew, Callahan. He is a big Milwaukee Brewers fan so I had to use this stamp. This is from TAC set I just got. The striped paper is from Basic Grey and the green is gable green from SU. The ribbon is from Target's $ bin. He is colored in with my Prisma pencils. Like I said, this card was for my nephew. I even stamped the back of it from Aunt Sharon. Well, when I came home last night the card was gone. Danny ended up using it when he went to his friend's birthday party. I'm sure he will wonder why it is stamped like that on the back. OH WELL! On to make a replica.

Happy Birthday!

Yipee! The weekend is finally here! It's wierd, every time we have off school on a Monday the rest of the week seems to drag on. One would think it would go faster but it doesn't. We have a very busy weekend coming up. Between band competitions and homecoming dances and football games and working concession stands I'm not sure I'll get any stamping in. So here is a card I made last week for a friend of mine. Once again the paper is from DCWV packet and the image is from MFT. The flower is a Prima and the ribbon came from Target in their dollar bin. This card looks much better in person. So have a great weekend and happy stamping!!

It's Finally Fall!!

FALL is finally here! Yipee!! Fall is my favorite time of the year, just warm enough to wear a sweatshirt and cool enough to leave the a.c. off . The best part are the leaves. Because it has been so warm the leaves really haven't changed much but here it comes. I just love the fall colors. My son Danny is already talking about raking leaves for other people and making a few bucks.
Anyway, here is another card we made on WCMD. You can hardly tell but I used glitter on the leaves. Now, glitter is not my favorite thing to use (I don't even let the kids at school use it), it always seems to linger on forever and I manage to find it weeks later stuck to the strangest places. Ugh!! All the products used on this card are from SU (of course). Well, thanks for visiting and ENJOY the FALL!

World Card Making Day

Yesterday I went to a card class for world card making day. It was a blast. I met some really
sweet ladies and we made 12 awesome cards. Two of the cards we each made will be sent to a
family in Michigan who had twin girls. At 3 months old they were both diagnosed with cancer.
So we are sending them some cards and lots of prayers. All products are SU products for these cards. I'm not too sure of the names of the papers we used. I will be posting the rest of the cards throughout the week. Have a great rest of the weekend and to some of you, a great day off tomorrow (for Columbus Day).
I have been tagged a few times and I promise I will get to those.

Cute Little Kids

Well, here is my first TAC card. My order came
last week and I was so anxious to get moving on it. I made this card for my lunch mom at school for her birthday. I thought it was appropriate coming from my class. Anyway, I love how it turned out!! I also love the stamps from TAC because
they are so easy to use on the acrylic blocks. I'm
sure I'll have to get some more soon. The paper is
from DCWV and the peach paper is from SU but
I don't know what it is called. I used my cuttlebug
folder and the ribbon is from the dollar bin a M.
I colored the kids in with my Prisma watercolors.
The weekend is just about here so have a great one and GO CUBS!!!

Trick or Treat

After seeing everyones Halloween cards I thought I better get busy making mine. So here is 3 versions of basically the same card. The purple paper is Lavender Lace from SU and the polka dot paper is from Designs by Reminisce and the the swirly paper is from Doodlebug Design. The purple ribbon I found at Target in their dollar bins. I used my cuttlebug folder and square punches. The stamps, I think, are from SU ( stamped a bunch of them at the last party I was at). Now I'm off to create some great cards using my new TAC stamps. The stamps are so cute and easy to use. Thanks for visiting and Ta Ta for now!!
