The next 3 cards are using Papertrey Inks Autumn Abundance paper. It’s a nice fall paper that I fell in love with as well. Ok are you getting the hint yet that I just love fall papers?? I know it’s crazy but I do so love the fall colors and I have been eyeing these papers so you guys get to play too!  On these cards is an adorable wreath from a set called Remarkable Wreath sold by Close to my Heart it is another adorable set I just got for the fall cards. Loving the versatility of this set. I added in the Country Blessings leaves and quote and wow the person you send this too will really feel special. The last in this set is a cornucopia card it just isn’t fall without one and I found this digital stamp on Sweet & Sassy that fit the papers perfectly. Hope you are loving these cards and looking forward to the last 3……

Ok now for the last 3 cards were using the Sonoma paper now from Close to my Heart. I was looking for a fall paper that wasn’t too “fall” but gave us some sweetness.
I think this fulfills our needs.
The first card is a circle card using Sonoma paper and the 5 petal flowers. So sweet. We then move onto the Treasure Life stamp set and oh my I have to say I am really happy with the stamp off technique on this one it gave us 2 ink colors and really made this card plus add some shimmer. ooh la la! And the last little beauty was the one I actually ordered the paper for, interesting it is the one I used the least on… But the Field Flowers stamp set and I decided to add in some of that amazing First Edition specialty paper instead of more Sonoma. It just worked better. But those flowers are just so pretty and realistic. (they speak to me!)

Monday! Sneak Peek of November Card Class

 It’s Monday! I am a Monday lover anymore….
It’s the day I get to give the house a once over or a thorough cleaning like today.
Today was a nice treat for me though as they, Jason and Miranda left for work and school I felt the relief of the mess… Since they both have been sick and the house has had this overwhelming feeling of ill in it I just had to get out the bucket of cleaners and purge the sick out of the house. So I started at the top level and just disinfected the whole house from top to bottom. I must say It is only 11 am and the house is clean the laundry is well on its way to finished and I feel great! Even the fish tank is cleaned and looking shiny. Oh how I love Mondays and a nice clean slate..
I wanted to post a little sneak peek of the cards I have been working on for the card class coming up in November.
 I have been using the Spice cake paper from SU and the Autumn Abundance paper form PaperTrey INK. Just loving the fall papers this year so nice to play with and easy to use. I also am planning to use the Sonoma paper from Close to my Heart to finish off the class.  So here are some sneak peeks- I’ll post the full pictures when I finish the set of cards.
