Pumpkin Wishes

Again wishing for cooler weather! I love the look of pumpkins and gourds adorning front porches.

Use your different ink pads to create a faux wood look for your background. I stamped some leaves on the die cut behind the pumpkin. I hope this inspires you to create some fall decor or cards for loved ones.

Enjoy!

Fall Leaves Thinking of you

Since it has been so hot, I thought maybe some imagery of cooler weather would help! HaHa!!!

For those who love Fall, this week will have you wishing for a mug of soup, hot chocolate and a crackling fire.

I created a faux wood background by swiping different ink pads across my paper. Stamp any focal image and sentiment you like.

Enjoy!

Butterfly Easel Sympathy Card

I dedicate this card to all of those with genetic illnesses awaiting a medical break through to ease their daily struggles. This week we lost someone to Cystic Fibrosis. She was a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend and teacher. Words can never be enough to fill the void left by someone you love.

Hug those you love every day and be thankful you have the day with them!
