A Case from Mary Brown

This very pretty and again C&S card was cased from the very talented Stamper Camper, Mary Brown. She and I both love clean and simple cards and I often find inspiration from her. Check out her card here. You can see mine is very basically hers with a couple of minor changes.

Thinking of You

Again with the glitter paper! Look how lovely the copper is with the retired Bermuda Bay. I added the crimped Crumb Cake and some ribbon for a quick and easy clean and simple glittery card!

Catalog Case Thankful Card

I cased the card on pg 45 of the Fall Mini and made it into a mini card...4x4 version. I love the Mango Melody with the Merry Merlot. So pretty together.

Harvest of Thanks

This card was made using some of the Natures Poem DSP. The colors just say Autumn to me. I am loving the way the leaf jumps off the page with the Cajun Craze and Shaded Spruce.

Another Stampin' Up! Inspiration

This is a sample card in the Fall Mini Catalog. It is so pretty! I know I am obsessed with this bundle. I sure hope it stays around for the big catalog!

So Very Thankful

I think this card speaks for itself. It is so pretty and sparkly and I love the sentiment! Loving the golds and coppers of the glitter papers!

Only 2-1/2 weeks until Thanksgiving!

Yikes! I am looking at the calendar and we are only 2-1/2 weeks from Thanksgiving and after that the Christmas holidays! We are all so busy during this season that I work hard to get all my cards and blogging done up through Christmas. Oh sure, I might add a challenge here or there or I might not. My philosophy is that the holidays are NOT about rushing around and making ourselves crazy or broke $$$.

Yes, I believe in keeping the focus on others as Christ would have done and not worrying about all the fluff that makes us crazy. I like to make cards and little gifts and be ready for anyone to drop by or for any party to pops up.

But, until after Thanksgiving I refuse to post Christmas stuff. We get enough of that even before Halloween. So, for now, let's focus on things we are thankful creative outlets like Stampin' Up!

The Paper Players challenge: PP417

The Challenge: Give Thanks

I am working with my new stamp set bundle...Falling for Leaves and I really am loving it. I said I would be using it all this week or so and then this challenge popped up today. I also wore some fall looking clothes to church and decided to let my necklace be my color challenge.

Pretty Colors...

My clean and simple card...

Falling for Leaves

It is finally November and I am playing with my new stamp set, Falling for Leaves. It is a bundle in the new mini catalog  and it is such a pretty set! I love the leaves and will be showcasing this set for the next week or so. This first card was a quickie since I have been at Adventure Camp for the last 3 days with 297 5th graders. I let myself get a bit behind with stamping and blogging. This was a case from the mini catalog.

Happy Halloween card

One last card to post and I am moving on to Autumn and the holidays...Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I used some retired DSP and a new color...Mango Melody. I think that and the Blackberry Bliss look great!
