Thanks A Bunch

Playing along with two challenges today: Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and Lawn Fawnatics Challenge - Mood Board.








Here's my card:


I was inspired by all of the orange, yellow, and brown leaves in the inspiration photos and also by Jen Mitchell's super CAS sample card over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I pulled out some older Lawn Fawn sets (Harvest Season and Harold's ABCs) for these 4x4 square card creations. I think it's awesome that I still love these stamp sets after all of these years :)


Hope you're having a fun weekend! We're heading to Timberfest in a little bit. It's a fundraiser for our local fire department. They've been VERY busy during this extremely dry summer (and several groups have been deployed on various occasions to help fight fires in CA and WY). We're so lucky to have such a dedicated and awesome group of volunteers giving their all to our community :)

Thanks for visiting!!!

Healing Wishes

I just learned that one of my friends is in the hospital :(  So, I spent some time in the studio today to make a card to send off to her.

I used this sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge 287:


And here's my take:


These Stuck On You Stamps and coordinating dies are super fun for creating get well cards. And who wouldn't love a rainbow assortment of bandages?!?!!! Hoping this will make my friend smile while she's recovering :)

Sending The Biggest Hug Your Way

Bird season kicked off on September 1st, so the hubster and the pupster went hunting Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning :) They had a successful start to their hunting season and I got to spend some time in my craft studio :) YAY!

Today I'm sharing two cards I created featuring Altenew's Hug Me Stamp Set and coordinating dies.


I absolutely adore the darling little foxes in this set and the sweet sentiments!

Hug Me

My card for today combines two challenges: the sketch from Paper Craft Crew Challenge 305 and the color combo from Global Design Project Challenge 153.



And here's my card:


My grandma (who's 87) injured her knee and has been in a lot of pain recently. So, I thought I'd send her a card to cheer her up :)

I absolutely ADORE this sweet Hug Me Stamp Set from Altenew! So perfect for this occasion!

(Note: The inside says "sending the biggest hug your way")
