Here's another stamp set that I just HAD TO HAVE which my hubby bought me a few Christmases ago. Now I have to say I couldn't decide how to color the leaf pile. I mean leaf piles aren't all one color. So I tried a few different ways, and I think I like this way the best. These are for my Addicted to Cardmaking swap on my favorite MB, the theme being Fall colors. This is the first time I used a big circle/scallop on my card and I do really like it! The background is embossed with a Sizzix folder ran through my BigShot. The twill I colored by pulling it across my (I believe) Soft Suede Classic Ink stamp pad. The PopTop (from a Diet Coke Can) was dyed using alcohol markers. But you could always use alcohol inks. The image I colored with my Stampin' Write markers (Marvelous Markers). The patterned paper is just stuff I had on hand. I love how this turned out!
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
