Vintage Birthday



Happy Friday Friends with Flair!  

Today, I've got a design team post up over at Cut@Home, but it uses new-to-me Unity Stamp {Consider Yourself Vintage}, so I'm posting it here.

I also used Heartfelt Creations Antiquity Paper, a Spellbinders Cascading Hearts Card Front Die, some UmWow Studio Chipboard and some Timeless Twine.  I used this card for my hubby's birthday recently.  I think he liked it. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Craftily yours,

Have a Spooktacular Halloween

Today's my design team day over at 3 Girl JAM!  I've recently acquired the Lawn Fawn {Happy Haunting} stamp-set and am having so much fun with it and some Graphic 45 {An Eerie Tale} paper.  These products fit perfectly with the NEW 3 Girl JAM diagonal stripe ribbon and the NEW 3 Girl JAM white lace.


I hope you will join us in the 3 Girl JAM Challenge!  Need some 3 Girl JAM goodies, be sure to use code KN10 at the 3 Girl JAM store!

Craftily yours,

Hello Fall

I'm up on the Timeless Twine blog today with a happy Fall card!  I'm definitely NOT a summer girl, too blasted hot!  We are still having 85 deg days, but it's WAY better than those that are over 100!!

Here's my card today...

In celebration of Fall, I created this card using the Timeless Twine in Autumn Splendor and the NEW Solid Orange.   The paper is from Basic Grey {Life of the Party} and the stamp is from Unity Stamp Company.  And, of course....the owl had to have googly eyes!

Craftily yours,

Sorta Snowglobe?

Christmas Card Challenges has an optional challenge this week to be inspired by a beautiful picture of a snowman in a snowglobe.  I need a snowglobe stamp!  haha  I went ahead and "sorta" created a globe with an adorable snowman from There She Goes and some Bo Bunny Powder Mountain paper.



I added a button, some Timeless Twine, and some 3 Girl JAM lace ribbon.  Hope you'll link up with us :)

3 Girl JAM and Craftin' Desert Diva's Blog Hop


Welcome to the Craftin' Desert Divas and 3 Girl JAM Fall Blog Hop!

I love Fall!  Pretty leaves, cooler weather.....and hopefully, here in No California this year, some RAIN!   Fall hasn't hit here yet.  As I write this, it's over 95 degrees.....but I'm hoping it's coming!

If you have arrived from Tara's blog, you are in the right place.  I'm your second stop on this fabulous hop!

For my card, I used gold and white card stock with a leaf embossing folder to create this fun Fall card.  The stamp is SO cute.  I seriously love this sweet lil bear!  It's from the Craftin' Desert Diva's Hey Pumpkin Set!  I also used some 3 Girl JAM Diagonal Striped ribbon to embellish the card.  The bear is colored with Copic markers.  Then I used a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock and inked it up with all of the Fall colors in Distress Ink.  I stamped the leaf part of the bear stamp over and over and fussy cut the leaves.  I love how they turned out!



We have some fabulous prizes available to random commenters.
Prize One - 3 Girl JAM $20 Gift Certificate.  (Special note:  to celebrate this hop, 3 Girl JAM is offering 25% off in their store!  WoW!  Use HOP25 from October 11-25 for some GrEaT deals!)

Boo!

I'm up at the 3 Girl JAM blog today with a card that fits into this month's challenge.  3 Girl JAM is asking YOU to create something for Halloween!  Get your boo on!  As always, you have to include ribbon!

I got my boo on with some 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon in Iris (from the Spring Bundle) and Witch's Brew (from the Spooky Bundle).  The stamp is from Unity Stamp Company {A Tiny Witch} and the paper is from We R Memory Keepers {BeWitched}.


She is the cutest witch ever!

I'm up on the Timeless Twine blog today with a FUN door hanger (my nod at Halloween decor for my office!) made with the Halloween Mini-Embellishment Kit from Bella Creationz!  This spooky, cute kit includes some Timeless Twine in  Solid BlackSolid Orange and our popular Orange Licorice!


I used all three colors of Timeless Twine that are featured in the kit.  The stamp is from Unity Stamp Company.  I love that quirky cool Happy Halloween button! (It's ALSO in this super fun filled kit!!)  I added some of the fun new Halloween Sequins!

Look at all the goodies!
