Love, Joy and Peace.....PPA320

Still trying to make a few Christmas cards now and then because this is how I feel knowing that the holidays are just around the corner......

I love how my friend Dawn's great sketch this week gave me a chance to showcase some pretty holiday paper called This Christmas!  I tucked a few sprigs from Pretty Pines behind the sentiment - which I cut from Merry Medley!  Hope you join us at Pals Paper Arts!

Let's Fly Away.....FMS256


My first trick or treating partner growing up was my cousin who lived next door.  We are long past the trick or treating days but I still send her a Halloween card every year.  At our age there is only one way to fly......

My talented friend Jen Timko has a wide open sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I inked up the banner with distress inks and stamped bats from Halloween Scares. A sentiment from Delightful Doxies by Newton's Nook works perfectly!

Pumpkin Season.....PP314

Friday morning was still warm and summery here.  Then just like that we were wearing sweatshirts by suppertime.  Pretty typical how fall arrives around here.  But no complaints from's pumpkin season!  This delightful farm is just a few miles from my house - beautiful!

Laurie has a great sketch challenge for us this week at the Paper Players. I made a fall coffee card to enter into the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Always a fun event!  My images are from Coffee Talk by Lil' Inkers and Jar of Love by SU!

Birthday Celebrations - Fusion

Emma and her uncle Mikey both celebrated their birthdays while we were at the beach.  She celebrated with a trip to the aquarium to view all sorts of sea creatures......

He celebrated by having some sea creatures over for dinner........

Use the sketch - or the photo - or both!  Come play at Fusion! The colorful dots in the picture caught my eye and the Stylized Birthday Sentiment Stamp worked perfectly with dots on my card!
