So many Trees.....

A Muse has two (!) new clear sets called Trees 1 and Trees 2 and they are so cool! These trees are just two of the many different designs. I gave them an autumnal look, but they work for any season. This card is one of the designs from my Give Thanks class.

Here's a fun trick. If you want your embellishments to match your card colors, you can color them with Copics. This works particulary well on ribbon or the flowers on this card.

A Little Something...

...for the first day of Fall. I just got this scarecrow image and he is so perfect for fall cards! The foliage (from the Nature clear set) reminds me of cornstalks. What do you think?

Am I pushing it?

Summer isn't even over and I'm wishing for Fall. I just can't help it. Fall is my favorite time of year. The air is crisp and clear and I feel invigorated after the heat of summer. Even though I'm a looong way from my school years, I still think of Fall as a time of beginnings.
This card, featuring the new pumpkin stack stamp, reminds me of special times when I was young. I would always look forward to getting that one "perfect" pumpkin for Halloween!
This card is also featured in my upcoming "Fall" ing for A Muse classes at Create It Crafts (Sept. 14) and Angela's Happy Stamper (Oct. 4).
I hope I'll see you there!

Birds of a feather....

I was browsing the A Muse Blog and saw Becky's card using the naked tree, solid bird and dot. Here's mine. I think we must have been on the same wavelength when we created our cards. I love being on the same wavelength as Becky. I'm not so sure how she feels about it ; ).

This card is part of my "FAll" ing for A Muse class that I'm teaching at Create It Crafts this Sunday. Check out some of the others on their website. It's not quite fall yet, but I love these colors. There just so warm and cozy looking.

BTW... We had a blast yesterday at Angela's. I'd like to say a big thank you to all the the ladies in my Halloween and Sweet classes. I hope you had as much fun as I did and I'm looking forward to seeing you soon. Maybe in my classes on Saturday, October 4?
