Happy Halloween

This is the first time I've used rub ons for cards
and the first time I didn't do much coloring on
my was fast and easy.

All stamps and images are from CTMH

Hope you all have a safe Halloween.
See you tomorrow.

Christmas card challenge #47

Happy Friday!!
I am finally playing along in my favorite
Christmas card's been a while
and I really need to finish up my Christmas
cards! So, I will be playing catch up. Isn't this
the reason we do a card or two a week so we don't have
to scramble when it gets close to the holidays?!
(I made four of these cards)
This weeks challenge was to use
two designer papers, ribbon and a bird.
You can play along here.

I am loving the brightness of this paper.
(I think I may have to order more)
All paper is from CTMH, sentiment is from A Muse
and the image is a digi (don't remember from where. Sorry)
I will be finishing up my Halloween cards today
and few layouts.
Have a crafty weekend!

Kohler Village

Happy hump day!!
It's rainy and cold here (love the rain...don't like to drive in it)
Here is a layout that took me a LONG time to complete.
The paper is from MME I cut each flower out from the a sheet
of paper. Love the look but, it took FOREVER!!!
I am loving how it turned out.

We were in Kohler, Id a couple of months ago...I went for a
run and took a few pictures. The scenery was beautiful
lots of beautiful wild flowers.

Running thru this tree lined trail was AWESOME!!

I used Martha Stewart punche for the boarder and for
the butterfly.
This layout is really beautiful in person and I am so
glad I took the time to work on this and all the small
Have a crafty day and stay dry!

Bridal Shower for Sophie

Happy Tuesday!
I have lots to post this week...I have been busy
scrapping with my friends. But, I have been a bad blogger!
Thanks for all the emails and phone calls
insisting I update my blog.
These pictures are from Sophia's Bridal Shower back
in August. I have had this layout done for a few weeks.
I think this paper is MME (sorry not sure).
Her wedding colors are black and white with a hint of pink
so, I thought this paper was perfect.

I used lots of tools on this layout. I used my cricut, ek punches
and Tim Holtz die to make the flowers.

I am so addicted to these flowers...I think I've used them
a lot this month...trying to move on and use other flowers.
(do you ever get hooked on something and use it over
and over and over?)

It is supposed to rain here for the next two days...
I love when it rains! that means comfy clothes, hot chocolate
and the fireplace!!
Have a scrappy day!
