I pick you

Hello Crafty Friends,

First of all, Happy Veteran's Day.  Thank you to all have served for my freedom.

Today I have a quick and easy card.

I first started by embossing the background with Barn Wall from Fun Stampers Journey.   I then cut up some pattern paper I had in my stash and added that.
I then stamped the image and the sentiment on a piece of Butter Cream cardstock.  I colored the apples with my Color Burst Pencils.
I added some Natural twine to the card, by criss crossing the twine a few times.

All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey except the pattern paper.

Love to Craft Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is the first of the month and you know what that means; we have a new challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.

Here is the card I created for this month.

I got the "Thankful" dies at the Scrapbook Expo, and I had to play with them right away.
I created the card using cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey and pattern paper from Reminisce.
I stamped the pumpkins from Cardstock and layered them on the card.
The sentiment stamps and dies are from Queen and Company.  I die cut the background from Gold Glitter Foam and White Cardstock.

I am very thankful this season and this card is a great way to show it.

Candy Corn Treat Box

Hello Crafty Friends,

It is almost Halloween and the thing I love the most about this season is Candy Corns.

We recently had a crop here at my house and the theme was candy corns.  I had to create this cute box from Dreaming Tree.

Here is a side view:

If you have not checked out Dreaming Tree, they have some of the cutest cut files.  This one was free and it was perfect for my treat swap.

The files were so easy to cut and everyone loved the little boxes.

Pumpkin Spice Everything

Hello Crafty Friends,

I have a Pumpkin Spice Card that I had a lot of fun to create.

I used the masking technique on this card. 

I colored the images with my colored pencils.
I used a plaid embossing folder and swiped it with ink to create the card background. 
I then added a strip of burlap ribbon and tied with with some twine.
