So yesterday, I showed you my card using just the boy pilgrim. Of course, my girl pilgrim was colored and ready to use. So, I went with a similar card, but still a different layout and used just the girl. I love how this one came out! Enjoy!

Hello! One of the stamp sets I purchased new for Thanksgiving, was the Hero Arts set with the pilgrims. I first showed you a card where I used them on my October 7th post. A couple of weekends ago, when I was set up at the flea market, I stamped out several more of these pilgrims and colored them. i wanted to have more than one card to show you, so, I made cards with different layouts. Of course, this totally changes the look! Today I have for you the first of four looks! Enjoy!

Hello! I started thinking about all the fall papers that I purchased this year that I had not made cards with yet, and decided I had better get to it. Today, feeling creative, I made several cards. And hope to get back to my room tomorrow to make a few more. So, the good news about that is I will have a card a day to show you for the next several days! On today's card, I used a couple of those unused papers. Here is my card ...enjoy!

Hello! Another day, another oval fall stamp from one Just Rite set. The sketch I used for today's card, was actually shown in a vertical format, but I decided it could be easily changed to be horizontal so that is what I did! You can see it here in it's original format. Let me get to my card ... enjoy!

Hello! Today I have another card using the Autumn stamp set from Just Rite. Like the stamp I used on yesterday's card, it is an oval. So, I went to look for a sketch that I would like to use. There are so many sketches out there to pick from. But, I don't think I have ever noticed, that most sketches that has an oval in the sketch, the oval is almost always vertical on the card. But, with these stamps that I stamped off from a friend and colored the images to make into cards, all need the oval to be horizontal. So, yesterday's post had one idea, today is another, and tomorrow I will have one more idea. So obviously there are some, but not that many! Today's sketch is one I have done before and I like it. Here is my card ... enjoy!
So, I just got a pack of cardstock from Stampin' Up, some that was clearanced. Anyway, I can't believe how close the brown in the pack matches this scrapbook paper. I have a happy mistake to tell you about on this one. When I was die-cutting the oval, I didn't really line it up all that well. So, the result was there was a lot of white showing on the outside of the oval on the right side. Now, you can't tell this, because I covered my little boo boo up with the button and leaf. I love this added element and it really makes the card, but the point is, I probably would not have added this if I wasn't trying to cover up the boo boo. I also used linen thread to gather the ribbon on the right side. It makes the button appear to be tied to the ribbon. I love this card. How about you?

Hello! Did you miss me? I definitely have missed you. I spent last week getting together all the boxes of inventory from my store, taking them to the local flea market and then spent the whole weekend there wishing more than two ladies came to shop my sale! Oh, I guess I sold to a couple more people, but the only true stamper/scrapbookers that came were the two ladies. And I do want to say I am grateful for them! I will be there this next weekend too, so we'll see if it gets any better. I do have to say though, it was not a total loss, because I got a lot of images colored to make into some fall cards for you to see! It is usually difficult to color images ahead of time, unless you know what paper you are planning to use, but this time of the year with fall images, it is a lot easier to do. On Friday night, I got together with some stamping friends, and I stamped off the Just Rite Apple Basket. This is one of the images that I colored this weekend and then tonight I spent time in my room making them into cards. For some reason, one of the images came out more orange so that is how I ended up using two different sets of papers. It is good because it gives you more ideas. Let's get to them ... enjoy!

Hello! Welcome to another Texas Tues - Step card. For today's Texas creation, I used one of my favorite sketches and layered a couple of stamps to create my rectangle shape. I knew I wanted to add either a punched out or stamped Texas shape as an accent piece, but I went around and around with trying to find just the right look. I ended up with a stamped Texas shape with a stamped Texas word on the inside. I like the way it came out. Let me show you ... enjoy!
Ink - Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink, Tombow Markers
Tools - Labels 8 Nestibilities
Other - Pearls by Queen & Co.

I have one more pic to show you. Here is a close-up of Gary's Texas Rangers shirt. He ordered it online the day they won the American League play-offs and knew they would be going to the World Series, but of course, they didn't make enough and so he had to wait! Got it in the mail today, so I made him put it on for his pics!
Yes, I know the Rangers are behind 3 games to 2 which means it might be unlikely that we will win the World Series. But, in this household we are very proud of our team, win or lose! And we are glad that, for the first time ever, we can say we are a team that has been to the World Series! GO RANGERS!
Texas Tues- Step is tomorrow, so I will see you then!
