More Fall stuff....

I've been working on some new designs for my webstore and since I'm in such a Fallish (did I just totally use a made up word?) kind of mood these days, here's a set of premade scrapbook that seemed just right for this time of year!

It feels kind of funny being all "Yay Fall!" and what not right now because the weather just isn't agreeing with the calendar AT ALL. It's the end of September and we've had 80+ degree weather for the past few days. Now don't get me wrong, I really love warmer weather; It's just that it's been so warm that the caramel apples (a delicious treat for when you're feeling "Fallish") we made with the kids yesterday evening, got too warm overnight and melted all over the my kitchen counters! Oh well, I guess that's just an excuse to make up another batch sometime soon!

Say cheese!

My mom just got her braces taken off last Wednesday...after having had them for 4 YEARS! Ah, yes patience is indeed a virtue ;0) Anyway, I thought this was definitely cause for celebration and made her this little card to remind her to smile big, because she's definitely earned it!

The little mouse is one of my original paper pieced creations. It's kind of hard to tell from the photo but his cheeks and tummy were chalked to make them look rosey.

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Sunflower card

Fall is officially here as of Monday and I'm loving it! All the beautiful colors outside inspired me to create this cute little thank you card. I paper pieced the sunflower and the sentiment is actually cut out from this adorable Fall Festival paper by Bo Bunny.

Just out of curiousity, which term do you use for this time of year? I tend to call it fall, but autumn looks and sounds so much more colorful, don't you think?

Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday!

Trick or Treat card

Using up some more of my paper scraps today and I came up with this cute little card. I so wish that I had more of this paper! I think this card turned out way cute! The little bear in the pumpkin costume is one of my favorite paper pieced critters from a set of scrapbook pages I designed last Fall and I thought he'd look great on the front of a card.

I'm really digging this card making stuff today! I think I'll try and see what else I can cook up in my little noggin, lol! Maybe one day I'll even be as good at cards as my buddies Sparkle & Nona! One can always dream, right?
