Twofer Challenge



Wow, we went from 85 degrees Tuesday to mid 30's yesterday and today. I'm not exactly where or when we will get fall. I think it might have been Wednesday. Fall was here before but left to become summer.

These are my cards for the Twofer Challenge Harvest. On the first card I used my new Stampin Up goodies. The milk can is from the Country Home stamp set and cut with Galvanized Metallic Paper layered with pop dots. The background is a Tin Tile embossing folder cut from the same paper. The wheat in white is a die from Concord & 9th and the kraft wheat is Impression Obession.  The second card has reversed colors of wheat on small polka dot paper and a PTI twine bow. The hello is kraft layered on white Poppy Stamp die. I wish the picture had come out better.  This is for the

Happy Columbus Day

The card today has been sent and received so I can post it. I used re-inkers on a baby wipe and used that as my ink pad. I masked off the bottom and stamped my leaves, then masked off the top and stamped again. I love fall colors so this was a nice way to get them incorporated on a card.

My little poem

I can't believe today
I'm seventy five
I thank God every day
I'm still alive!
I've got some health issues,
that's true
When you live this long
You'll have a few
Exercise and eat veggies
And do your part
Fruit helps too
To take care of your heart
So that's my story
I'm working hard
To take care of myself
And make another card!

Thank you so much for all the beautiful birthday cards you sent to help me celebrate the day. I would also like to introduce a new follower. She is Maria of http://mariasmerrymakings.blogspot.com/. She has the cutest planner on her blog and a sweet Halloween card posted. Welcome, Maria, I'm happy you're here.

Fall card

I am all over the place with making cards. I have my tub of fall and Thanksgiving supplies out along with the tub of Halloween and I keep switching back and forth. This is another fall card and I think my last one as I only send those to family. This one went to my son and his family. I used pattern paper and a tag from Craft n Craftin' that was in my stash. I cut some copper leaves with a Lawn Fawn die and added those. Very easy to do. I love the tags in that set and have hoarded them for a long time as I don't know if that company is still in business. It's not one I've heard of. The left top corner has a glare on it but it is copper too! I've already sent the card so I can't retake the picture.

I love this card

It's not like me to pick the right colors, so when I blended these colors together for a background I was stunned. I used Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Black Soot DOX's and this is what I got. It just looks spooky to me with that Stampendous stamp of the house. The only other thing I added was a die cut cat from Impression Obsession covered in Glossy Accents. Simple but it is one of my favorite cards I've made. The inside says "Something wicked this way comes" from Tim Holtz. Finally got a Halloween card made.

Another sticker!

Can you stand another sticker card? This pumpkin sticker came from a set I got recently made by Jolee's. I put this on my autumn card because the paper had the gold and copper on it and they wanted to be together! Very simple card with just a strip of card stock along the bottom,  the sticker and a bit of twine. Happy Autumn everyone. I love the leaves, the colors and the cooler weather. Woke up to temps in the high 50's yesterday! It was just in the 90's the other day. It's hard to keep up.

My son's birthday

It's almost time for my younger son's birthday and he is a avid golfer. This is another pop up card from Jennifer McGuire. These are so easy and a fun surprise when opened. There are stickers on the front and I used an old Stampin Up stamp for the inside. I stamped and colored the inside back panel with Copics, along with the golfer. Then I cut him out and mounted him to the inside of the circle so he was away from the green making the shot.

We are still having a lot of heat with temps of 92 today. Good indoor crafting weather and this was my last birthday card so I'm ready to start on Halloween. I am not buying anything new for Halloween crafting this year and shouldn't forever. Well, wait, I did buy a package of stickers. I have sooo much Halloween that I would be nuts to get more. I don't know why I can't resist new products. I also don't know why I've suddenly started using stickers but I guess I'm trying to make stickers great again.
