Sending You Blessings

This will be my last fall card of the year. This is extremely sad as fall is one of my favorite times of the year.

I used one of the dot papers to resize and adhere to the tree for a fun effect.  The sentiment was printed onto the paper.  Everything was then cut with my silhouette and put together.  These hybrid cards are so easy peasy!  I love and am adicted to making them.

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #19

Well, I don't usually do challenges. But for some reason, I have fallen head over heels for a designer and card maker - Dawn McVey. I adore so much of what she does and am inspired by her work almost on a daily basis. I can always pop on to her blog and get some inspiration. So, I was compelled to join in her fun. :)

This was the challenge colors:

So here is what I came up with. Enjoy!

{ETA: I took the first picture with my iPhone, but I was not satisfied. So, we went to dinner and I retook a picture that I think looks a little better. Enjoy!}

Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Signature Greetings (PTI)

Paper: Lavender Moon (PTI)

Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate (PTI)

Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You!!

It was my Father-in-Law's birthday this past weekend. Of course my share for the day is the card I made for him. I am just LOVING my Silhouette. I have not abandoned my Cricut. :) I have a Gypsy on its way to me as I type!!! EEEeeeek! But, I must say that I am really getting into using my Silhouette. There is a print and cut technique that BLOWS IT OUT of the water! In my opinion, if you are going to do any type of hybrid crafting, you must have this little machine. Anyway, I digress . . . I will post more on my little wonder that is my Silhouette at a later time. :) Until then, here is my share today.

Filled with Blessings

We are going to a Marriage Conference at our church this weekend.  Yeah!  My husband is off so I will most likely not be around AT ALL!  Today's share is a set of cards I made for our guest speakers at the conference.  The couple coming to talk is a husband and wife missionary team.  She is just adorable, so I wanted to make her something unique that she probably doesn't get everywhere.

It is November!!!!

It always amazes me how quickly time can fly sometimes. This year has been full of so many highs and lows. Nothing can bring a smile to my face like a cup of hot chocolate on a chilly autumn day!

Today I am going to share a friend card.  I love the color combo on this one.  And the sentiment "for a special friend" could be used for so many things.

Do you like the little duck?  You will find this little duck in several photos.  It has a history and a long story!
