The Perfectly Preserved stamps, framelits and Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper, all found in the Holiday Catalog, remind me of Fall.  I have had fun playing but have so many ideas flooding my mind I am stamping in my sleep.  Imagine the possibilities for a scrapbook page!  This card is one we made at card club. We chose our colors, paper pattern and the fruit or vegatable we wanted to use for our embellishment. I love cards that move although sometimes it is hard for me to wrap my brain around exactly how to make them move. After one oopsie I made this swing card.



The front of the card looks crooked, it might be the way it is sitting.  I laid it flat and it is straight. must be my photography skills or lack of.

Just a reminder August 31st is the last day to take advantage of the Printer's Tray gift special when you sign up as a demonstrator for only $99.  You choose your starter kit and make it your way. Please contact me if you have any questions.

I hope you had a great weekend, it was raining here in NC which gave me a great reason to stay in and get some stamping done.  I made my first Christmas card of the season!,  but you will have to wait until closer to Christmas to see it.    

I found this stamp set, Cottage Window, when I was organizing my stamps.   I don't remember buying it but decided to see what I could create.  The set actually is very versatile as it has something for every season.  There are vines,  a bird, butterfly, bnow flakes and the stamps I used for this card.  I think it would look cute with a Christmas tree in the window.  I hope you enjoy my fall Cottage Window.

I used Pumpkin Pie card stock for the base and layered Chocolate Chip.  The image is stamped twice on Whisper White. The second image I cut out and popped up on dimensionals with the pumpkins.  The Orchard Harvest DSP and the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon add a nice finish don't you think? 

Hope you have a great week!

I have been MIA for months!  I  had 2 computer crashes, had to change my email due to issues with my AT&T e-mail, Then I had problems with the modem from my new service not talking to my wireless router, a new modem and re-configuration of the router solved that problem.  Last but not least my husband had knee replacement the week that staff and students came back to school.  Whew!  I think everything and everyone is up and running now, except my CD burner won't cooperate but in the scheme of things that is minor. lol  Oh, forgot, my principal resigned 3 weeks into the school year.  yikes!!  I am the bookkeeper and I need athletic checks signed.
