Pumpkins and Shortie Cakes

Let's start out with some awesomely yummy pictures of my friend Vyvy's Shortie Cakes.  They are over-the-top delicious....  Click on her name, and you'll arrive at her tasty blog.  Vyvy brought these Shortie Cakes to a work potluck today, and they were practically ripped out of her hands!!  They are delicious, I think she needs to get a Sweetie Food Truck and drive it around town!!

Don't you just want to take a bite??  I did, and it was heaven in a Shortie Cake.  Please read on for a cute Fall card.....

Thursday's Card is also from the WPlus9 Stamp Set Happy Harvest.

I used a little dark brown burlap on this card, a different embellishment for me!  And again, I love this stamp set....  The pumpkins in the bucket, I mean, it's just cute!!!  And you stamp the little handle onto the bucket, they just thought of everything!

The colors I used are Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla..

I also popped a little orange button on there.

Thank you for stopping by today!  You'll probably be seeing a bit more of this stamp set this season!
Have a great Thursday!  And check out Vyvy's blog, she has a Bacon Guacamole Dip on there today!

Happy Anniversary Honey!

Hi - YAY it's Wednesday!  It's also anniversary #15 for me and my honey!!  So here's the card I made him!

The stamp set used is Happy Trails from Taylored Expressions..  We always get each other cards with 2 animals on them.  One of the animals is me, and the other is my honey..  I'd say most of the time they are bears, but they have been dogs, skunks, moose(s?), bunnies, etc.....

The bears are holding hands because it's their anniversary.... The mountains are polka dots because we can make the mountains any color when we're papercrafting..  And there is some glitter sprinkled on the snow peaked mountains.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this beary sweet anniversary card!  Have a great
day today!!

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by today...   I have a graceful bicycle card for you today :-)  
I'm kind of collecting bicycle stamps (who? me?) and I have this cute one that belongs in the garden.  It has potted plants in the basket, etc...  Well, it looks like ivy to me, but I love the whimsy of the bicycle!

The "grace" stamp is from Verve Stamps, love the sentiment. 

The colors are easy, Very Vanilla and Basic Black, with a little bit of Old Olive for the ivy and ribbon..  I glittered the ivy a bit, just a little bit of sparkle.

The ribbon is the wrinkled seam binding, gives the card a vintage feel with the distressed paper, and I also distressed all over with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye.

I hope your Monday goes well for you, and I hope you enjoyed your stop by my blog today!

Bake Me a Cake!

I am addicted to this new cake die from Taylored Expressions!!  How fun is this!!!  So this is what I used, the Bake Me a Cake die.

The sentiments are from the You Take the Cake Stamp Set, which is also adorable!!

I looked through my Pinterest Board - Color Blends, for a good combination of colors...  The colors I used are Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Whisper White...  I really like this combination of colors!

The cake stand is a shimmery silver paper, and I added some dots of shimmery silver to the cake, for a little bit of sparkle!

I'm going to have some fun with this Bake Me a Cake Die, may have to open a paper bakery on Etsy!

Thank you for stopping by today, enjoy your Sunday!

Oh Carp!!!!

Hi, I hope your Saturday is going well!!  Today I have a card featuring "Carp" - yes it's a little bit fishy!!  :-)   It's a Belated Birthday Stamp Set called Oh Carp! from Taylored Expressions.

The colors used are Bashful Blue, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

How cute is that little orange carp with the bugged out googlie eyes?  He's the one looking at you right there!!  See him?  

The dark blue curly embellishment is made using the Taylored Expressions Curly Border Die.  I think it's going to be a great die for embellishing handmade paper crafts!!

I like how the googlie eyes are looking to the left here!  (I am easily amused!)

So what a cute way to say a Belated Happy Birthday!   Not that you really forgot probably, you (me) just didn't get the card made in time!!

Thank you for stopping by today, have a great Saturday!!  I'm going to have a cute cake card tomorrow, stay tuned......and stop on by!!

Friend to Friend

Hi!  The 10th of September, I tell ya, it's going way too fast!  The holidays will be here before we know it!!  I have another apple card today, love these little apples..

The colors used are Crumb Cake, Raspberry Ripple (a nice red!), Gumball Green and Whisper White.

I used the Chevron embossing folder from SU!, I love the look!

And the sentiment "friend to friend" was stamped on the a cotton Very  Vanilla ribbon.

I also popped up the Chevron piece...  It was a fast and simple card, again the stamp set is from WPlus9, I'm loving their stamps, and the quality is excellent!!  Thanks for checking out my blog today!  Have a great Monday!!

So Very Thankful..

Hello and a Happy Sunday to You!  My card today is a "So Very Thankful" card again.

This week I'm participating in The Shabby Team Room "Labor of Love"  Card Challenge using the colors in the photo and the project/card must have a "banner".

I really love the look of this "Sweets" table, kind of shabby Americana....So like I mentioned above, my card has to have these colors and a banner!!  Here's what I came up with!!

I think it turned out kind of shabby Americana too.

The Hexagon banner, and decoration on the card comes from Papertrey Ink.  There is a Hexagon Cover Plate die that cuts out all the hexagons.  You can cut them in solid colors, Designer Series Patterned Paper, OR you can stamp them using the Happy Hexagons Mini Stamp Set.  I did it all, stamped some, used some solid colors and some patterned paper.

The banner has ribbon tied between the hexagons (I love this little banner) and ribbon tied at the ends.

The colors used are Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla and Pool Party.

And I finished off the inside of the card with a few more hexagons!  This was a fun card to make, lots of little details!!  I added the teeny, tiny butterflies to the banner, just for a little extra embellishment!
I hope you enjoyed this card today, thank you for taking a look!  I hope to "see" you again tomorrow!!
Enjoy your Sunday!

It's Apple Pickin' Time

Hi and Happy Saturday to you!  Hope your week-end has gotten off to a good start!  Today's card is Apple Fresh!!  This stamp set is called Pretty Patches - Apple and they're from Wplus9.

There is an apple/leaf die that you can get to go with the stamp set.   It's similar to the pumpkin set I showed yesterday!

The colors used are Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals (for the heart), Gumball Green, Soft Suede and Whisper White.

The "So Very Thoughtful" sentiment comes with the stamp set, along with the sentiment shown below, which is stamped on the inside of the card.

I was thinking the green checkered pattern kind of gives the card an "on the farm" feel....

I hope you enjoyed these apples and please stop by again tomorrow!  Thank you for stopping  by today!

Another Sweet Pumpkin!

Hello and Happy Friday!  YAY!  The weekend is here!!  Here's a quick post of a cute little country farm pumpkin card!   On Pinterest I was seeing some cute cards from  Wplus9, a stamp company I wasn't familiar with (how can that be?)!!  So I checked out their website, and to my delight I found some adorable stamps, along with matching dies!

The colors used are Very Vanilla, Tangerine Tango, Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple.

The stamp set is called Pretty Patches - Pumpkin, it has a matching die, and the Pinking Squares are also from Wplus9.  This stuff is adorable!  I also purchased an apple set, which I will probably play with today!

I really like the "country, out on the farm" look!

Thank you for stopping by today, have a great Friday and an even better weekend!

Well, one more, I have it ready, so I have to post it, one more Cute Ghost card.....  And that's for THIS week, I'm sure there will be more...

Colors used are More Mustard, Very Vanilla and Basic Gray and the ink is the Stazon Black.

Again I used the Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.

Oooohhhh and a few buttons and some little flowers to embellish!

And here is the same Witchie - Witchie Halloween sentiment on the inside, with another happy ghost!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!  Have a great day!!
