Tomatoes are done, windows are washed, and I'm ready to stamp again! Yeah! I've added some new Holiday card sets to my shop, which I might post here later, but today, I want to share a new card.

We have 2 weddings to go to this month. I made the cards for the couples yesterday, and then made a slighter different version for my Etsy shop. This one has a swirled embossed pattern on the vanilla background paper. I hand cut the butterflies, and then wanted to make them look like they were flying right off the card.

I glued the body down and raised the wings. I love the end effect!

Is anyone else sick of their garden? The tomatoes just keep coming. I guess that's what happend when you plant 18 of them :) I'm ready to be done, but know I'll love it this winter.

I made loads of salsa this week, and it's very yummy! Next week will be more sauce.

Then it's window washing time. Something I've been trying to get done since the beginning of September.

After that I am offically declaring a craft day for me! I keep saying it, but I should be back to regular posts soon (I hope). Please don't abandon me :) I will return!

Back Into The Swing of Things

The kids are back in school, and I have a short list of projects I put off this summer. Once I finish those, I'll be ready to create! I am really looking forward to getting back into regular card making, and posting. I'm thinking that by the end of next week.....until then, enjoy this gorgeous fall weather!

Thinking Fall

It doesn't exactly look like fall yet. Nor, feel like it... well, maybe it's felt like fall most of the summer. It's been a cool summer here in Wisconsin. With school a little more than a week away, I'm starting to "think fall."

One of my most favorite things about fall is pumkins! Lots and lots of pumpkins. I usually have the front steps to the house full of them. This year, we planted pumpkins and gourds in the garden, and they are coming along very nicely!

So, while the garden bench isn't exactly a fall scene, the pumpkins most certainly are.

All the images were watercolored (is there any other way to make a beautiful pumpkin). :)
The pumpkins are raised with foam dots.

Have a great day!
