I have CASE'd two cards recently.  One is by Susan Itell at https://simplestampin.com/. She said she saw it in Houston and CASE'd it. I loved the clean, simple look of it. The blooms are Botanical Builders Framelits and this is so easy. I added some red bling to the centers and that was it. I can't find the other person I CASE'd from so I will try to find her today and post that card when I do. Be kind to one another.

I wanted to make a tag for the tagyoureit challenge. This was another perfect stamping day with heavy rain and a wind advisory for high winds. The only problem is the darkness. It was hard to get a good picture because it's so overcast and dark.

I used a black tag, Lawn Fawn wreath die cut from silver glitter paper DCWV and added red Stickles to the wreath. Silver ribbon is from my stash. 

The second tag is a snowman and banner along the bottom from Scrapping For Less Kit. I added a Lawn Fawn hill with Stickles for snow. The tree is Impression Obesstion tree cut from DCWV green glitter paper. 

The third tag is stamped with Memento ink and a Stampin Up stamp and sentiment. The star is gold embossing powder on white cardstock and die cut with Memory Box Star of Wonder small die. 



I don't ususally make tags but I am pleased with these. Be kind to one another.

Isn't it funny how our minds work? I saw the word Sharp this week for the casology challenge. I thought of all things that are sharp and knew I didn't have anything that would work for that.  I woke up night before last and thought knitting needles are sharp! It took me a while to find that stamp but I knew I had it so I made a card for the challenge. For some reason my Copic ink ran a bit when I was coloring. That doesn't usually happen. The knitting stamp is Lockhart and the sentiment is The Cats Pajamas.  Be kind to one another.

I've got one more fall card to share. This is a Lawn Fawn stamp and papers. It seems to the first hint that fall is here when the pumpkin spice products come out! I just layered the papers and colored with Copics. I hope you are enjoying your pumpkin lattes too. Be kind to one another.

We have a grungy, gray and to be rainy day here. In other words, a perfect stamping day. I have finally started my Christmas cards. This may be the earliest I have ever started them. I sometimes struggle with challenges trying to decide what to make. This last week has surprised me by having a stamp pop into my mind when I see a word or sketch. That is so NOT me that I have to enter when it slaps me in the face like that. Today I am sharing a card for http://casology.blogspot.com/ with Tiny as the word. I had gotten out all my Christmas stamps and here is this cute little stamp from Your Next Stamp that I wanted to use. I colored him with Copics and added Distress Ink over the sentiment.  He has Glossy Accents on his nose and black Enamel Accents on his eyes. Be kind to one another.

Semper Fi. Always Faithful. Today is the Marine Corp. birthday and my hubby was a Marine so we always knew what today was.  Thank you to all who served in our Armed Forces for today and Veteran's Day tomorrow.

I found another challenge I would like to enter. It is http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/ and the theme is Grateful. My stamp says Thankful but that is the same to me as being grateful. I followed the sketch for the challenge. Be kind to one another.

I would like to welcome a new follower to my blog this morning. She is Judy of http://judyscardcorner.blogspot.com and I hope you can visit her blog and say hi.  She is a design team member for CASology and on her blog Tuesday she had stunning pictures of the Northern Lights and the Milky Way seen from Iceland!

I'm sharing a card today made from a stamp I borrowed. I have returned it but I think it was a Stampendous cling stamp and I don't know it's name. I embossed it in white e/p and brayered on Distress Ink in three fall colors. The leaf is a die from Poppy Stamps called Majestic Maple and is also sponged with DI and the greeting is Lawn Fawn. I used a sponge brayer on the background and I love it. It is small so it's much easier to use for me than a larger rubber one. It gets into small places and it so lightweight. I love it when I find a new product that is so easy to work with, does the job well and is inexpensive. Be kind to one another.
