papertrey ink blog hop

So it's been awhile since I have actually crafted a card.  The holidays, the vacations, and life with three kids under 6 has kept me away from my craft desk (that and the looming pile of junk treasures that need to be put away).  I was on Cristina's blog and loved her card and the Papertrey inspiration photo.  I noticed that I had precisely 37 minutes to make a card, photograph it, and blog about it.  Nothing like procrastinating to get me in gear.  I was drawn to the woods and the bright read and came up with this.  Plus I have always loved this Maile Belles card. (ugh, my card so needs a button!)

stamp: Papertrey wreath pieces, "happy", & "holidays"

ink: A Muse cranberry & french roast
other: twine, Papertrey Ink die cut

happy turkey day

Another old card found with the Halloween stash.  A fun little table setting.

In my stash of pictures of Halloween cards, I found a few Thanksgiving cards as well.  They are a few years old so forgive the design and photography.

{blank fall}

I made this card at Carol's when we "free reign" over her stamps, paper, and extras.  I can't decide if it's a "fall" card or a "Halloween" card.  What do you think?
stamp: Memory Box tree
ink: VersaFine onyx black
other: rhinestones

Margaret and Kelly also made this card with dry embossing and chalk.  Such a fun look and easy enough for your kids to do it too.

{blank fall}

Margaret and Kelly designed this fall/back to school card.  They die cut the apple twice (once in red and once in brown).  We just cut off the red stem and placed the whole brown apple behind the red.  Too cute!
