Fall is barreling down on us. Before you know is, we’ll be knee deep in Christmas cards and Crafts. I had before starting planning!

~Grunge meets Fall

I am not sure if it’s still Autumn or Indian Summer. Either way, lots of Halloween papers are already on my desk. I’ve not made Halloween cards too often, but now I have a daughter in law who is all about Halloween.

*~*~*

However, I do love the papers. The Craft Consortium papers (Grunge) has all the right colors/textures.. You can find these type papers in most of their paper pads.

~*~*~

This type card brings to mind Steampunk. It’s dark and brooding. The elements are simple and flat for mailing.

~Welcome Fall~

The colors of Fall bring much joy to this Fall baby. The crunch of the leaves, the crisp morning air, and the aroma of apple cider, pumpkin everything…

This fall card is made me feel that crispness. It’s actually starting to cool off in the mornings so I can feel

the oncoming Fall. But don’t blink! It will be Winter before we blink!

The last two months have been a whirlwind of activity. Three hospitalizations, our annual family picnic, several birthdays and now more medical issues than I care to discuss.

~Bundle of Joy~

Did you hear me squeal when I saw this set?  I did!  In the last 3 years we’ve been blessed 4 new babies added to our family.  We also added a step-granddaughter.  Something tells me that there are more to come.  This set will get lots of use!

I had to go non-traditional with the colors as somehow I am without pastel baby patterns.  It was good to stretch my imagination.

~*~*~

I have 2 cousins who are expecting their first grandchildren.  I’m so excited for them.  At one time a 2nd cousin told me that in doing a family tree, she found that my great-grandparents had over 250 descendants.

~*~*~

Super simple sketch and this baby (pun) will fit in an invitation envelope.

~Twin Beauties~

We have another NEW release….. Poppies and Dahlias!

One can never have too many flower stamps, am I right?  I love to color, so these new floral stamps are just my style!

There was a time that I steered away from flowers because I didn’t know enough to color them realistically.  Then one day I declared that the flowers can be ANY color I want!

 

~*~*~

I used the same basic sketch for each card.  I switched minor details.  So, even though they are “Twins”, they have their own personality.

As kids, the 4th of July started vacation time.  There was camping, road trips, and lots of family time!

Nowadays, we make one big picnic/party and have lots of friend and family celebrating with us.  As we grow as a family, we have to keep evolving so that more people attend.  Our 4th in 2019, we had a guest/cousin come in from N. Ireland!
