Thankful for autumn

I have an autumn card made with a freebie from Miss Rach, Autumn Leaf Bird, which can be found on her freebie page.  I attempted to color the bird as a black-capped chickadee because I have an aunt that just adores them.  The sentiment is also a freebie from TLC, Create.

Miss Rach has this new Wizard Owl image that I had a lot of fun coloring.  He has a lot of detail which I tried to show in the picture.  The patterned paper and sentiment are from TLC, Create.  He is perfect for Halloween with the adorable hat.

For You with Love

I have a new card that I made with a pre-colored tag from Imagine That Digistamp using the Woodland Tags.  I added some twine to the top of the tag.  I forgot to add that if you make purchases at the Imagine That store you can use my discount....I will include my code in this post and it will be in my side bar on my page so it can be re-used.  So have fun shopping!

Oh baby

I have had this image colored for so long, and finally got it put together!  It is a baby ladybug image from Miss Rach.  She also has one with a bow on it.  These images are so reasonable at $1.00 in her ETSY shop.  I heat embossed the sentiment from VERVE.  And then I dry embossed the white background.  I'm just tired of baby cards being pink and blue so I wanted something WILD.  Just like the life of a new parent will be, hehe.

TLC Hocus Pocus I need coffee to focus

I just had to make one more coffee card.  I spent the day with my parents at the "Warrens Cranberry Festival" which has a huge craft fair and naturally cranberries.  I got five different flavors of dried cranberries and some cranberry salsa.  The only problem is that it is 94 degrees and under the craft tents there was no air circulating so it was just too HOT and HUMID.  We went early in the morning and left by early afternoon.  So I came home and this is what I am putting out as a last minute card.  The image and sentiment are from TLC, Create.

Hocus Pocus I need coffee to focus!

I just love this image and sentiment from Jessica Lynn, and it is another freebie for the Fall Coffee Bloghop.  And, this is the last card that I have for right now.  I know that I am planning to go tomorrow to celebrate my daughter's birthday with her and her class and then on Thursday they are coming here to the capital so I will be spending time with her and her students so again I won't be able to craft.  It is worth it to see her as an adult doing her job, and I'm so proud of her.  I couldn't help it, but I had to buy her a pair of Mary Janes for for her birthday, hehe.

Here is a freebie image and sentiment from Limited Runs.  The patterned paper is a new release that will be coming out new week from Imagine That Digistamp, but I couldn't help using it because it was the perfect colors and had pumpkins on it which is great for a fall card.
