Happy Hump Day everyone

I was thinking about a dear friend today who used to always say "another day of work another half dollar" as we would leave work. For some reason this card made me think of her.

I really need to give her a call!!

This is not a color combination I would normally put together but it looks really good IRL.

Stamps: Garden Silhouettes

Paper: Pumpkin Pie Not quite Navy Very Vanilla

Ink: Pumpkin Pie Not quite Navy Chocolate Chip

Other: Non SU ribbon and the scallop border punch from the Sal-e-bration catalog (which ends today)

Enjoy and have a blessed day :)

Another card with Garden Silhouettes

As I said earlier, I CASED this card from djahner from SCS. Love this color combination, not something I would normally pair together unless it was Halloween...

Stamps: Garden Silhouettes Sincere Salutations
Ink: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Pumkin Pie, Old Olive, Whisper White
Other: Big shot, top note, PP grossgrain ribbon, scallop circle punch

My new stamp set...well new to me!!

I recently saw a post on SCS where someone was selling Garden Silhouettes so I looked it up in the Gallery and fell in love with the set. I then saw where djahner cut a top note in half and decorated one half with Pocket Silhouettes. Well, I CASED her when I made this card except I used my Garden Silhouettes set. I am going to give this card with a few others to my mil for her bday next week. Hope she likes them.....hope I can part with this card....might have to make a few more before I part with 'em. Have a good day and thanks for looking.

Stamps: Garden Silhouettes
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, Perfect Plum
Ink: Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Chocolate Chip
Other: Ribbon (non SU) Big Shot (I don't think these plates were SU either, I think Sizzix) Top Note

Ink: Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede
Tools: Brayer, Scallop Trim Border Punch (Sal-e-bration)

Welcome to my blog

Do I know anything about creating a blog??? No. Do I know anything about uploading pictures to this blog?? No. I am going to learn how to do this one step at a time. Hopefully I will post some card pics soon!
