Well Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend and Halloween is Saturday so I guess that means Fall is officially here.  I have posted 3 cards this time using fall and Thanksgiving themes.

The first is Fall Foilage.  Using SU colors Mellow Moss, Soft Suede, Really Rust, More Mustard, and Very Vanilla.  Two stamp sets Branch Out (which is on the Dormant List #113200) and Hostess Set Holiday Best, 1/4" Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Word Punch, and Small Oval Punch.

Second is Happy Thanksgiving.  Using SU colors Whisper White, More Mustard, Old Olive cardstock, Classic Ink Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango, More Mustard, Old Olive, and Rich Razzleberry.  Falling Leaves Stamp Set, 1/16" and 1" Circle Punches, 1/2" Dusty Durango Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Linen Thread, and Stampin' Dimensions.  It is to have the acron stamp punched out once with the 1" and the 1/16" just acron cut out and with Stampin' Dimensions put over the larger one and tied with the Linen Thread but my punches have not come in but it looks just fine as it is.

Third is Autumn Harvest.  Using SU colors Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal.  The Autumn Harvest Stamp Set used, 1/2" Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, and Ticket Punch.  Stamp your pumpkin once on the Whisper White then on Apricot Appeal cut it out and glue over top the one white for effect.  Have a Happy Halloween and happy stamping, Lynette!!!

Coughing, Sneezing , Fever That Time of Year Is Here

Well this did not turn out as I envisioned it.  It was to be a bed with a bed tray holding tissues, book, and reading glasses.  An old teddy bear on the bed.  Not much stamping except on the picture above with SU Flight of the Butterfly Stamp Kit.  It says, Sneezing, Coughing, Fever, Runny Nose.  Rest & relax, get well soon.  At least you have an idea of what I was trying to do, I hope.  Happy Stamping, Lynette

Top Dog

I know that Summer has come and gone (much to my dismay) so why the hot dog card you ask?  This idea came about because of my pastor, Pastor Wayne.  Huh?  This past Sunday was Pastor Appreciation  Day so my Sunday School Class gave him a roast.  Well, he just loves hot dogs so this was my appreciation card I gave to him after my roast, what a fitting card for a roast! I used SU cardstock Soft Suede, More Mustard, and Real Red.  Just using a hole punch for the onions glued on with SU Mini Glue Dots and then ran over that using SU Classic Ink More Mustard and Soft Suede to try to give a mustard and chili effect. Now go fix you a hot dog and happy stamping, Lynette
