Ah… back at last. Late, like normal. I really can’t be the only one who consistently runs behind, right? As much as I love creating, sharing my cards with you on my blog and more – working the day job comes first. One of these days, when I grow up, I will be able to manage it all…… Not! I have taken liberty and used quite a few retired items.
This card is one that did not photograph particularly well. I made it too light for some reason. In any case, it’s really pretty in person.
Stamps – Thankful Forest Friends (ret)
Ink – Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Markers
Paper – Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Island Indigo and Cherry Cobbler card stock
Tools – Layering Circles Framelits, Woodland Embossing folder
Extras – Gold Metallic Thread, Basic Jewels Pearls
I would like to go on record that I don’t particularly care for this years In-Colors. Dapper Denim is great and Emerald Envy is fine, but the rest remind me of the mumus that the Golden Girls used to wear. I have seen some beautiful things made with the colors but for some reason I just don’t get it. That being said … others DO like the colors so I am using them. This card had a lot of fussy cutting. My class attendees were surely cursing me under their breath! 🙂
Stamps – Swallowtail (ret) and Floral Phrases
Ink – Sweet Sugarplum
Paper – Very Vanilla and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, Typeset DSP (ret)
Tools – Fluttering embossing folder
Ah … Halloween! I like Halloween, but I don’t love it. Maybe because we don’t have kids, I don’t fully grasp the simple joy of it all. I do however like seeing kids in their costumes and handing out candy. (I am not a total scrooge!) I guess I don’t know who to send my cards to – so I don’t make a lot of them. Still, I hope you like this one!
