Indian Corn

Fall is my favorite season and it is coming VERY soon. Here in southwestern PA it is feeling more like early fall than summer.

The stamp is from It is colored with copics and then the some yellow Nuvo drops and copper Perlen-Pen added to the corn. The bow has diamond glaze on it. There are two pieces of scalloped paper around the image. The ribbon is actually two different ones. The plaid and then two pieces of silk ribbon on each side. A few pieces of yellow and gold sequins are around. The circle at the bottom is from a piece of jewelry that broke off. I got it in Germany when I was living there years and years ago. 

What's your favorite season?

Merry and Bright

Christmas is coming soon. Way past time to make some Christmas cards so I can be ready.

The stamps are from Darcie. The poinsettia is stamped with white chalk ink on black paper and then colored with Prisma colored pencils. The center is done with yellow Nuvo drops. The leaves and holly are stamped on decorative paper. The little berries are red glitter glue. The saying is stamped with black and cut out with a sizzix die.  The white and red layer are cut out with sizzix nestabilities. (One of which is now behind my storage cabinet. Sigh!). The poinsettia paper and other red are bobunny two-sided paper.  The red burlap ribbon is from Target. They have such neat things in their dollar section. The poinsettia is popped up with a layer of foam tape and the "Merry & Bright" has two layers of foam tape.
Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

This Elephant is on the Ball

This elephant is having a ball and so am I - rolling along with another post.  I love elephants so here is an elephant card.

This is another Darcie stamp and button. The elephant is colored with copics. The head is cut out and popped up. The glitter tape is from Close to My Heart. The little brads I have had forever and I don't remember where they are from. The dp is from BoBunny, I think. My cat would not appreciate it if I got up and looked.

Have a ball today!

Wonder Woman

Two weekends ago I went to a stamp convention and spent way too much money. lol This is one of the stamps I bought.
The stamp is from Darcie. Almost all the stamps sets had these little buttons to cover the face or some other appropriate spot. Wonder Woman it is the face. The image is colored with copics. I tied red twine around the yellow card stock and added some star brads. 
I bought several other stamps and buttons from this company that I will share later.
Remember...You are wonderful!

Monkeyin' Around

Wow it has been forever since I posted anything. I've been creating just not posting. I'll try to remedy that. Life just gets too busy with three jobs. So here is my first card in a long time...

The monkey is from Art Gone Wild and is colored with copics. The circle is a die cut from CreekBanks. The words are my own handwriting. I took one strand from a piece of jute and tied it in the button. I thought the monkey was perfect to go sliding and twirling around the slider circle. I used two layers of foam tape to make it high enough to accommodate the pennies a
on the back of the monkey. I used two pennies and a small piece of foam tape in between so the monkey could go round and round.
Hope your day is full of monkey business.
