I LOVE this week every year. Fall has set in and yet it’s not too cold yet. Skies are often dark and cloudy and yet it feels comforting. Please note that I am not at all ready for Halloween. I just barely put up some decorations a week ago and I have yet to make any progress in the costume department, but I somehow feel OK with all of it, although I’ll be honest and tell you that am hoping for a productive day! Our weekends are sometimes non-stop crazy?! We even have good friends coming to eat dinner and carve pumpkins tonight (I wonder what we’ll eat?!) I must do some grocery shopping and Addie is home sick and I’ve promised to watch Tangled with her at some point — so I’m off to exercise, shower and dive in. Wish me luck!
I am so enjoying my Sunday evening card-making.
This batch is a nice mix of super-simple and simply altered …
Tip: It’s so easy to pull out an ink pad and give cards the added dimension of ink. I inked the edges, the embellishment and even the tiny letters and then I stamped three hearts on top!
Tip: I love the look of coordinating ribbon wrapped around this long skinny card. Ribbon is Close To My Heart and rub-on is an old one from Heidi!
Tip: I am loving my Knock Outs Border Punch Kit from American Crafts. Click HERE to learn more!
Speaking of American Crafts, did you hear the very exciting news about their partnership with Becky Higgins and Project Life?
I’m thrilled to see this happen as it supports retailers and they do so much to keep our industry alive and well!
Congrats to Becky and AC and everyone involved!
And btw … if you are doing Project Life, I hope you’re registered in the Project Life community at Big Picture Classes. There are over 10,200 people there, asking questions, sharing ideas and posting their work … cool!
