Enjoy the Little Things...

I played with the November Girl by Unity the other day and challenged myself to color.... today I went with what really  makes me happy... paper piecing.  Must say... I want her sweater ;)

I had fun paper piecing her with the Warm & Cozy collection by Pebbles... I even used the sweater paper for her hat, gloves and scarf :)

I kept it simple but did add a die cut frame (Simon Says) and stitching for some interest.  She is mounted on foam squares.

Playing along with a few challenges.... First the Simon Says - Thinking of You

Once again, also playing along with the Unity challenge...

Fall is in the Air

I'm making the most of my fall supplies before I jump right into Christmas stuff...

Today I am once again using my Happy Harvest stamp and die from Reverse Confetti.  I created a simple card to go along with a couple of challenges.... one of which I am too late for :)  The colors were inspired by last week's Paper Players color challenge.

Not much to say as this is a pretty simple card.  I did pop the acorn up on foam squares.

The sketch is from:

And of course the supplies (click on picture to go to link)

Thankful, Grateful, Blessed

Whew, away last weekend and a busy week thus far left me no crafting time.... I was missing it so I decided to skip Zumba to play in my craft room! LOL

I challenged myself to not use pattern paper and to color rather than paper piece.  That is hard for me... I love my paper piecing and am not the best at coloring... but I do try once in awhile.  Anyways I used the November Girl and the Fall to Go stamp sets from Unity along with the Tag Duo from Reverse Confetti.

Whisking you a Sweet Birthday

I decided to step away from Fall and Winter and create a birthday card.  I used the Happiness is Homemade collection by Echo Park and thought that it paired nicely with an Echo Park cupcake die and the Whisky Business set by SugarPea stamps.

I paper pieced the image then mounted it on foam squares.

Hi everyone, my second card for WCMD... I decided to use some of the newest goodies that I received from Simon Says... some MME papers.

I popped the die cut Santa and one of the gifts on foam squares.  Added some stitching to the die cut tree for some interest.

I am playing along with a couple of challenges:

First the Simon Says Challenge:  Christmas

Hello Winter

Happy World Cardmaking day!  Who decides to go away to camp and do a run this weekend?!  Uhm yes me that's who.  When I asked hubby to do the run (me 8K him the half marathon) and that we could camp I had no idea I would be doing it on WCMD.... or I may not have suggested it ;)

Anyways this is my first card.  I will have 2 for today.  I used the A Perfect Winter paper pack from Echo Park. I paired it up with the winter die set from Echo Park.

As always... my winter cards always have to have some vellum snowflakes and I love the clear gems.

I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers... there are a few good ones over there just for today... if only I had more time to craft!

Thankful for Fall

I decided to use yesterday's card as inspiration, but went more clean and simple.  I used the Lawn Fawn set (Into the Woods) along with the Birch Tree die.

The 'thankful for' sentiment is from Studio L2E (Fall in Love set)
