A New Puppy & Christmas Tag

Create Along With Us: September 2017
I wanted to share our new puppy with you here on my blog, for those of you who don't do Instagram. 
This is Lucy, she is as sweet as she looks! Its like having a newborn and I am so tired
but worth every bit of tired.

I was inspired by Dawn's beautiful tags.

 My tag turned out a little busier than I would have liked but decided to post it anyway. 

Thanks for the visit today! 
Keeping all of you that were in the path of the storm in my contained prayers.

All Those Golden Leaves

Hello and Happy September to you! 
My goodness time is going by so quickly!

 Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Hop !

 I turned the stamp over and colored it in with zig brush pens then spritzed with water, using a MISTI I was able to sections at a time, grass , trunks and upper tree!. It looked beautiful but I kept adding a bit more leaves once the image was stamped. I would spritz with water and blend with a water-pen.
After stamping and embossing the sentiment I decided to make a few embossed leaves, with a versa mark pen. I maybe, should have stoped because my leaves look a bit like teardrops. I wish I would have taken pictures in stages but it was already dark. 

One of my favorite tv shows is Little House On the Prairie, one of the reasons I love this quote by
 Laura Ingalls Wilder. 

What a fun stamp image with so many possibilities! Link below.

Butterflies in Flight

Hello again! Another quick post with the card I made , totally inspired by Laura Bassen!

I loved Laura's card with leaves and knew right away I wanted to use this  Bitty Butterfly Die.
1st Anniversary Tradition, Paper

5th Anniversary Tradition, Wood
- with Lizzie Jones
If you look closely you can see I use the woodgrain plate.

I am on the fence if this is just a bit too busy or not!
Maybe I should have used just a bit less butterflies?

God bless Texas and all in the path of the storm.

Hi there! Still praying for all those suffering from the results of the hurricane! I am so sorry!

I was all set to have time to myself then the kids called and asked if we wanted to spend the day with them at the beach....of course we said yes! It's very rare that my DH and I would ever turn down a chance to be with our kids and grandchildren! 
I have been under the weather but a day at the beach with family is just what I needed.

Pumpkin Weather is Almost Here

 Ashley shows how to make an easy fold card in her video for this weeks
 Papertrey Ink Make it Monday.

I knew right away I was going to use this sweet pumpkin set (Spooky Smiles) 
designed by Kay last year.

Last year I made this card: Here and sorta redesigned for the Z Card. I created my own gingham 
using the stencil that came with the Market Street Kit. All the pumpkins were blended with ink after 
I cut them out then stamped. 

word Art Wednesday

I just love this little mouse set from, Christmas Critters Papertrey Ink ! This one took a bit of time 
because I had to do it over when I messed up the lower front. I added some Crystal Nuvo Drops
 to the eyes and nose of the mouse and pumpkins.

Take Care!
