1st Card of Fall

I am supposed to be getting my craft stuff ready to pack up to take with me when I go out of town Saturday. But,,, what do I do, I spend valuable time surfing the internet. The inspiration for this card came from on of my favorite spots the creative corner of Thank you so much. i just love your work. I love finding new ideas and techniques to put into my cards. I try to put that WOW factor in all of my cards. Problem with that is I get attached to them and don't want to give them up. I am going to donate this one to a good cause. We are collecting cards to send overseas to our troops. They are in need of all kinds of greeting cards to send to their families back home. We all have that box of cards that are just sitting there, This is a great way to help them find loving homes. If you don't know anyone in your area that has a military collection going let me know and I will find you one. Have a great day. and Happy Scrappin.

My Haunted House

I just can't say enough about this stamp set except I'm having a blast with it. I embossed the house with clear and then sponged white craft ink over the top of it and rubbed it until the image came through. I used sun yellow on the moon and then I highlighted it with Rich Razzleberry.
I've been really busy this month with all of my swaps, and clubs. I'm going out of town for a few weeks to stay with my parents, (mom has to have some surgery, and I'm going just for support). I will have my lap top so it will be business as usual. But I just don't know how much of my stampin stuff I can take with me. So my goal for this week is to work out a game plan on what projects I want to do. I need to design cards for card club, and do all of my September swaps... I need a bigger case (LOL) Oh the heck with it I'm just gonna take it all.

Halloween - That time of year

Wow , Can you believe it summer is almost over and Halloween is just around the corner.
I'm really having a lot of fun with our Stamp sets, This is one of my favorite holidays and my birthday is also in October. I just love this time of year. I can not take credit for this card, I totally scrap lifted it from my mentor and SU Upline Mandy. The stamp set is 'From the Crypt' and the paper pack is 'Cast-a-Spell'. I just changed a few of the details to accommodate my supplies. You would have to see this in real life to really appreciate the intricate detail of the spider webs and flourishes. Isn't this stamp wicked? I just love it. I'm sitting here patiently waiting for the UPS dude, he has another stamps set I'm dying to use. And thinking about it I have come up with all kinds of Ideas.

It's card club time again and this month we are making birthday cards for boys. Here is a sneak peek of 2 of them we are going to make, The 3rd one is a surprise so I will show it to you later. I used our new stamp set 'Animal Stories' and the paper is from the 'Tall Tales' pack. I also scrap lifted the card with the Elephant. (Thank you Mandy, you keep me going).
I have lots of swaps to complete so I had better run. Happy Scrappin.

Sunday Afternoon

Well here I am again. It's the end of another uneventful weekend. I did some scrapping, read a book and basically just veg'd out.
I did this lay out at scrapbook club on Thursday night. We did 6 pages all about Boys. This is the only one I have put pictures in. I definately need more pictures.
Last week I decided to change the name of my Yahoo group. We are no longer a local group and needed a name that would appeal to anyone looking for a group that loves scrapbooking and doing swaps. I left it up to the members to come up with names and then we voted on it. Congratulations Amber on the winning name, we are now known as . If your in the neighborhood look us up we would love to have you join us.
Hope everyone had a nice weekend, see ya soon. Happy Scrappin.
