Happy Wednesday! Hope you're having a great week so far! We've started out our week with a fair bit of rain and cloud. I'm looking forward to a few days of sunshine again! The leaves have been so beautiful but we need some sunshine to enjoy the last few days of them staying on the trees!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! This week our fabulous hostess is Jen Mitchell! Jen makes the most amazing cards and you need to head over to her blog to check out those beauties!
I decided to use a word bubble instead of a circle and the Just Sayin' stamp set worked just perfectly! I needed a little texture on that small square panel and I couldn't help but use the polka dot textured embossing folder!
The card needed a little something else so I decided to emboss some of the flowers from the Pictogram Punches stamp set!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Pictogram Punches, Just Sayin'
Other: Word Bubbles Framelits, Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder, Itty Bitty Accents Punches (Flower Punch), Silver Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

I hope my fellow Canadian readers had a great Thanksgiving weekend. We had such a nice day today. It was so nice to relax together! I actually uploaded photos to be printed and am excited to start working on my Project Life albums again!
I have another card today! Shocking - I know! I loved the sketch at Retro Sketches this weekend! I don't usually know what to do with tags but I kinda had an idea of what I wanted to do with this one!
I'm still filling a customer order of nature themed cards. My customer has requested some of the cards be blank! It's actually hard for me to do that! I sometimes find that my cards look naked! However - this is what she requested and this is what I'll do!
I love French Foliage and was so sad when SU retired it. It is so perfect for cards at any time of the year. I love how many different patterns you can create with this set!
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer
Stamps: French Foliage
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze
Other: Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Lattice Textured Embossing Folder, Fun Fall Framelits, Natural Twine, Natural Chevron Ribbon, Dimensionals

I had a few minutes this weekend to play in my craft room! The boys enjoyed one of the last flying days of the season on Saturday so I took advantage of hanging out with my paper, stamps and ink!
I'm still working on filling an order of nature inspired cards and what doesn't scream nature more than butterflies?! I could make dozens of cards with butterflies!
I started with the Fusion card challenge sketch! It fit my butterflies perfectly! I decided to pair it with the colours from the Card Concept challenge (using the Clean and Simple style). I don't really use Halloween cards so I knew that instead of halloween I could do monarchs!
Papillon Potpourri is one of my favourite stamp sets! Those butterflies totally make me smile! I used my Score Board to create the lines on the bottom of the front white panel! I chose a sentiment from a PTI stamp set. I tried colouring the butterflies to start with but ended up having to just stamp them on some Pumpkin Pie cardstock! My colouring skills need some work!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, PTI (Sentiment)
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Elegant Butterfly Punch, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a fabulous day!

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week! We are having a busy week here. Somehow I thought once both boys were in school full time I would have oodles and oodles of spare time to do all sorts of crafty things! I was sadly mistaken! I am enjoying the things I have been doing though!
