Hope your weekend has been AMAZING!! We have had GREAT weather this weekend and its supposed to be nice (55-65 degrees) all WEEK!!
So putting up our Christmas lights and decorations will be a FUN family event instead of just a daddy event!! =)
We also have a 30 week check-up and Ultra sound tomorrow and I am looking forward to seeing how much our little guy has changed in 10 weeks!! =)
I will be sharing pic's later this week!!
So how about seeing some FUN Fall/Thanksgiving cards!!
I had fun last weekend with my 10 year old niece Meghan who was here for the weekend to celebrate her 10th birthday and so her dad could go deer hunting!! We spent the WHOLE weekend creating!! Even her little sister Anna who is 5 decided to create after seeing how much FUN we were having!! I was SO impressed with her coloring skills and I wish I would have gotten some pictures, but the boys had the camera so they could document the Big Hunt!! Everyone ended up getting a deer this year so Beckett was having a BLAST!! =) I will share pictures of that later too!!
Anyway, I wanted to share my cards and I used Inspiration from the Moxie Fab World Blog Tuesday Trigger Challenge Fantasy in Fall!!
I wanted to make a wreath and thought I had a stamp set, but couldn't find it so after looking through my supplies I decided to use the Tim Holtz Branch Tree Die
and a scalloped 3 inch scalloped circle punch that I punched the center out of using a 21/2 inch scalloped circle punch for the base!! I cut out two trees and cut the branches off in individual pieces and then layered them all together onto the scalloped circle base to form my wreath!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! I then cut some small circles out of felt and did a spiral cut so I could make the rolled flowers that I added to the bottom of my wreath!! The background was made by running my cardstock through my sizzix machine using the Tim Holtz Thankful Backgrounds embossing folder!!
I then added some May Arts burlap Twine and some gems to finish it off!!
My next card was created using a FUN technique that I came up with using the Tim Holtz BluePrint mini stamps!! I LOVE the way it looks and decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple so that the Acorn would be the main focal point!! I added some Rock Candy Dry Distress Stickles glitter to the top of the acorn and then using a glue pen I went around the edges of my card and added some more to make a boarder!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!
My last card is a card I made using a Stamp set from the Craft's Meow!! I took the Holiday Card class with Jennifer Mcquire and Kristina Werner a couple weeks ago and Jennifer shared a really neat idea on how to use a WHOLE Holiday Stamp set to make some holiday cards!! I decided to give it a try and I LOVE the results!! Plus, I got to use all of the stamps except for two and on card!! How AWESOME!! I then added a EK Sucess label punch for the Turkey stamp base and then a couple leaves and some May Arts Burlap twine bow with a gem to finish it off!! LOVE the way they turned out!! I made a video to share and walk through the process of making them!! You can watch it here!!
