All Occassion Card

Hi There,
Just getting ready to head out. I've got a 15 hours plane ride, 8 hour layover and then another 7 hour flight. I-pad charged for reading and a spare paperback! Don't know if I'll get to post while I'm away.

Image is Stampin' UP and colored with copics. Added some triangular cuts to break up the solid look of the background paper.
If I get a chance to I'll post some photos of vacation.

Halloween Cards

Good Morning,
I seem to be having a hard time these days posting regularly.  Even though I haven't posted I have been busy.
I've met a new group of ladies who stamp and was invited to stamp with them each Wednesday. Sometimes one of us teach the class and other times we work on our own projects. They also do cards for a Veteran's hospital when there is a special holiday in the month. So this month we were doing Halloween cards. All the cards are 4 x 4. I did four or five cards of each design. Most of the pattern paper was purchased from a package at Target for $1.00. It held 5 or 6 sheets.
The pumpkin face and pumpkin pattern paper were printed and cut with the Imagine. The skull head is a cricut die too but I clear embossed it to make it glossy. I couldn't get my crop tool to work properly this morning to make the pictures bigger. Just click on the image and you should be able to get a close up.

I have my Halloween decorations out but won't be making any more this year as I'm heading off on vacation next week. I'm going to accompany my DH to Malaysia. He's working and I'm touring. Not looking forward to the flight. It's 30 hours. Nine of that is a layover in Dubai. Better have a couple of good books with me.
The rest of my plans for today include getting out for a bike ride and going to the post office. I have a couple things I need to send to Xavier and Korben. I better hurry before Korben outgrows the outfit. Maybe I'll get Steph to take pictures of the boys in their new duds and then I can post them. All I'll say for now is they will make interesting scrapbooking pages. (I know Steph reads this...she will be so wondering what I've found this time!). he he
Have a good week-end!

Corn Fed

Good Morning,

Here's Xavier a little more than a year ago having his first go at a cob of corn. Initially he didn't realize picking it up with your hands was okay!
I crimped the long strip of cardstock and used a Stampin' UP punch to place the words on.
Inked the die cut pieces.
Love the look of his little mouth.
Supplies Used:
Cartridges: Word of Mouth - pattern paper
                   Smiley Cards - Cob of Corn
                   Old West - Font
                   Paper Doll Dress Up - Corn Stock
Have a great week-end and to all my Canadian friends and family...
Happy Thanksgiving!
