Hello Friend!!

Snuck a little stamping in and made a card using last week's sketch by Diva Moe on SCS. You can find the challenge here. Participate in each of the monthly/weekly sketches to win some Verve!! Can't get any better than that. Used the colors from the CR84FN40, brown, kraft and red, gorgeous!!

My card...

Used some MME Lost & Found dp {have bunches from this line and have been limited on stamping time so, starting to enjoy it!!} Cut our several floral circles from Verve's Floral Circles, A Cut Above Dies, and layered on a corrugate Jillibean flower. Added crinkled ribbon and twine. Sentiment, from Verve's Hope Blooms, is stamped in early espresso onto a circle nestie and layered on another circle nestie. Border was made with MFT's doily border die.

The colors....

Moe's sketch....

Today's Monday and all is well so far!! Hope this week is a good one for you. If you stop by, leave a comment, I enjoy reading them and appreciate all the kind words!!

Scary Sweets

This week the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge is a tag. Some new goodies came in the mail the other day and in celebration of Halloween.... I made a little treat bag and tag.

Close-up of the tag....

Cut a large circle nestie out of chipboard and layered in black cardstock and Mischievous dp by MME. Added some zigzag stitching. Stamped the witch from WMS Halloween Party in black and heat embossed with clear. Layers of pleated ribbon, black lace gathered, and crochet trim to the bottom. Sentiment on the tag is from Halloween Party, too. Added a button/twine combo. Attached to the bag with a clothespin with a glittered black star. 

Pics done in the dark this early Friday am so not the greatest, sorry!!

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend, too!! I'll be painting {hopefully a little stampin too!!}

TFL!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

With Gratitude...

Had a moment to make a card and I've been missing my MFT sketch challenges ( one of my fav weekly's) and I had this little girl inked, colored, and pieced so I flipped the sketch and finished!!

Used some Authentique Glowing (love this stuff) for the patterned papers. PI is from MFT Lil' Pumpkin and she is colored with copics and paper pieced and layered on a MFT die-namic. Pumpkin and shoes are shiny with crystal effects. Added some rhinestones to her Mary Janes while the CE was wet. A big ole' twill bow finishes it off!!

Yes, I even flipped the sketch for you, LOL!!

Hope you had a great weekend... I'm still in the "throes" of wedding and renovations!! Found fabric and an upholstery shop for dining room chairs and a couple victorian chairs that need a little love!! Painting...painting...painting!! Honestly, nothing like a wedding to motivate!!

I'm looking forward to everything being done so, I can squirrel myself in my "room"!!

TFL!! Appreciate all the kind words!!
