Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!!!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend - and is enjoying this beautiful time of year.

Michelle at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge has another great sketch for us this week.  I have been wanting to get some poinsettias onto a card and this week was the perfect opportunity.

 I have been trying to use some of my "stash" along with new treasures.  It is always such fun to discover long lost favourites and put them to use.

For my card I used two poinsettias from a very old embellishment package, offsetting them and inking the edges with cranberry.  I then used leaves from another retired embellishment collection to add some additional colour.

The wreath is from the Flower Market cricut collection using pewter cardstock.  Patterned paper is the lovely Silver & Gold paper collection.  To finish off a bit of silver glitter paper and sparkle gems.

Cats & Bats

Welcome to Fall!!!

Have you noticed what's in the stores - no not the winter snow suits - the other costumes!!!  Halloween is around the corner and the scary costumes, decorations and yummy treats are out in full force. 

I have been working with a new paper collection from Close to My Heart - Cats & Bats.  I have decided to show a different take on this spooky paper - still involves a costume & is still kinda scary.


The patterned paper and complements highlight my goofy son at his brother's wedding rehearsal dressed in a blue man suit (yes I know it's green).   Practical jokes and a sense of humor are common between these two brothers.


Take another look at the patterned papers in the Cats & Bats collection,  with a fresh eye for non-Halloween layouts.


Now, of course, I'll use the collection for Halloween layouts and can't wait to see Gaius celebrate his first Halloween.  No natter what he wears he won't be spooky at all.


Enjoy,

Jennifer
