Today as I took my girls for a walk around the neighborhood, I noticed the effects the cooler weather has had on the trees - they are starting to turn colors and drop their leaves. While I do love the autumn season, I'm not quite ready for it. I'm hoping for a warm September - not overly hot - but 70's would be great! I know I'm not alone in this! This guy from LAD Happy Harvest is so fun to color. He is happy just to be there - at least that is what the smile on his face says to me. I love this paper, I wish I would have bought more of it or could remember where I bought it or the brand. I cut that strip off first and didn't save it. It's been my favorite paper lately and I'm using every little scrap of it. The knots are tied with moss and chocolate taffeta ribbon from SU - I love the softness they add.

It's feels like fall, it isn't supposed to feel like this yet. Yes I complained about the 90+ weather, but August is supposed to be the best weather in the northwest. Not constant rain. I'm looking for the sunbreaks today. This set from LAD is so fun to play with, I tried to give my pumpkin "stripes" like real pumpkins do, but well, you can't tell from the picture.

I am really loving this Happy Harvest Set. Especially the basket of apples. It gets me in the mood for fall. I am also enjoying making 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 cards - just a little different in size, but I can still get what I need on the card. I'm off to start checking off my "to-do" list today. Have a good one!

I have always liked this set and wanted to get it from LAD, but do I really *need* it? After playing with it yesterday for an assignment, yes, I do *need* it. I have so many ideas floating around in my head for it and can't wait to get started. I especially love this bushel of apples.

so it's been a while... we were gone an extended family vacation and got to visit with lots and lots of family. It was fun, but alas, no stamping. Hopefully between the piles of laundry and unpacking, I'll get some time in to stamp soon. Here is a page that I made before I left using Garden Isle from Lizzie Anne. I just adore this little hula girl! She is absolutely adorable.

Another fun set from Lizzie Anne - great for backgrounds, but also fun to use a focal point - I'll share that card later. The Happy Birthday is from Sketched Sentiments, but everything else was stamped using shapes and stitches. I tried making a masculine card, but well, it didn't end up that way. Mayeb next time.
