Seasons are Changing

Seems like yesterday we were celebrating the 4th of July!  Wow, how time does fly....  now it's time to pull out the winter snuggies!  Judy (my Twin) sent me the link to this cute card from Brandy Cox, she is just adorable.  Check out her video and blog. 

Just love all the Fall/Autumn Colors.  Used Soft Suede CS, Very Vanilla CS.  The ink colors are Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, So Saffron and Baked Brown Sugar.  Stamps were Tags 4 You and Truly Grateful sets.  Punched the Thanksgiving saying with the Label Bracket Punch.  Just love the new Burlap Ribbon.  Also added a piece of Natural Trim and adhered the bow to the burlap using one of the Vintage Safety Pins.  Just love Brandy's site, adding it to my list of favorites to visit every (well almost every) day!

Happy Fall - Autumn....I can almost smell the turkey!

Thank You box

I found the video instructions for this box on Beth Beard's Blog; My Little Craft Blog.  She has all the materials and instructions listed.  I love the vintage look and this box is made with the Milk Carton Die (I haven't used that in a while...). 

It uses Modern Medley DSP (one of my current favorites), Black CS, Baked Brown Sugar CS & Ink.  The little Thank You is from Hello, Lovely Stamp Set.  Also used Early Espresso to sponge the edges and make them darker.  There is a large Basic Pearl in the center.

The box is actually pretty good sized, I'm going to use it as a gift box.  Thanks Beth for the great idea!

Jeri's Birthday Card

This is the care I created for my great work friend Jeri this week.  Sorry there are shadows in the pic' ~ but you get the idea???

I used Summer Starfruit CS for the base.  The Happy Birthday to You! is from Cycle Celebration Stamp Set and the birthday cake slice is from Sketched Birthday Stamp Set.  I used Summer Starfruit ink.  The DSP layer on the front of the card and on the inside of the card flap is from Witches' Brew collection.  I used the Envelope Liners Framelit for the liner and Deco Labels Framelits for the front and inside.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Happy Birthday my friend!
