Autumn Splendor

Wow it sure did get cold fast!  One day you have the air conditioning on and the next your cuddled up under the blankets.  That is Pennsylvania weather for you!  I Love my state and the seasons.  Even though we have times of weird weather.  Now that the cold weather seems to be here for now that is.  I was in the mood to make a fall card. 

I used the Doodlecharms Cricut cart.  I cut the basket at 2".  Apples at 1".  Acorns at .75".  The leaves I used a recollections punch I got at Michael's.  For the paper I used a DCWV Matstack "The Autumn Melody".  I believe I got it last year.  I honestly have so much paper I can't remember most of the time when I got what.  Yes I admit it I am a paper addict. 
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Happy Crafting!

Little Monsters

These Little Monster designs came from Kadoodlebugdesigns.   I made them to hang in the kitchen cafeteria at school for the little ones to look at while going through the lunch line.  Halloween will be here before you know it and I am trying to get ahead this year. 

  Happy Crafting!

Sept card swap!

Here we are in September all ready.  Where did the summer months go?  Time for the September card swap.  Do I ever have some great cards this month!  Millie and Kim did some really wonderful cards for this month.
Starting off with Kim's cards.
 Love this birthday card.  It has a charm and glitter.  Great birthday card.  The cupcakes look so yummy!
 This is a cool card.  The blue flowers have a orange center and the orange flowers have a blue center.  I know Kim did some stamping tricks with this one.  Very creative.
 This neat little card has a pull out tag.  So awesome!  I love the butterfly embellishment.  Very pretty card!
Beautiful card!  Love the flair!  Lots of color and the embellishments pop!

Here are the goodies Kim sent me.  I just love bling!! 
Thank you so much Kim for the wonderful cards & goodies!
Now onto Millie's cards.
 Very cool Halloween card!  She even made a envie to match.  Also some really spooky brads.  She also did some embossing along the side of the card.  I haven't figured out how she did that one yet.
 Gorgeous card!  I love the colors and the flowers. 
This is my favorite card!  I love how she placed 3 different types of ink across the card and the beautiful tree stamp.  This cards just says wow!

Here are the goodies Millie sent me with the swap.  I love the bird stickers.  The Halloween Authentique  paper pad is awesome.  Millie knows my taste.
Thanks so much Millie for the beautiful cards & goodies!
Now onto my cards.
While I was cleaning my craft room this summer I found a hot off the press card kit.  I got it from HSN back in Feb. 2012.  I decided to finally put it to use.  I only managed to get 2 cards each done for the ladies.  Millie surprised me in August when my son and her walked in the door.  My son is in the United States Air Force and is stationed in Alaska.  It had been over 8 months since I seen him.  Millie picked him up at the air port and brought him home to me.  I had him for 22 days.  Needless to say I sure didn't get much done in the crafting dept.  At least I did get a chance to use some of that kit I found....LOL.

 I sent these 2 cards to Millie.
This stamp I sent to Millie.

 I sent these 2 cards to Kim.
I sent this stamp to Kim.
Here are the goodies I sent both of them.

Well I know this post was picture heavy.  I hoped you enjoyed checking out this months swap.  Now summer is over and time to start on the fall cards.  Fall is my favorite time of year.  Not to hot and not to cold.  Have a great fall season, and as always Happy Crafting!
