Gather Around

Today I’m catching up and sharing several Thanksgiving cards I made with the Polka Dot Orchard Thankful For All Things Good Pooh digitail set. It’s an adorable table full of sweet friends enjoying a meal together. This set is on sale for $6 right now!

This if the full Thankful For All Things Good set,


Veterans Day Gratitude

Today I’m thankful for our veterans and their service and sacrifices. I love that our schools have programs that include our community veterans. It brings so much awareness to our children.

I made this card with America, My Hero from Polka Dot Orchard.

You Are Never Too Old

Welcome to our October Anything Goes challenge for Jan’s Digital Images.

Check out her site for new Halloween fun and sales.

Ha! You are never too old to beg for candy….but my add on is you MUST be dressed up! I need to check in with my two littles and see what they are thinking for costumes this year!

I love this spunky image and fun sentiment! So fun, Halloween is SOOO fun. I used the Candy Corn Witch set. I fussy cut the candy corner for a border. I would love such a fun costume like hers!

But First COFFEE

Helloooo! Welcome back for another coffee card, this time with my first Design Team work for 613 Avenue Create!! The gnomes totally got me and then I saw their announcement for additional Design Team members and I couldn’t resist! 🙂

For October we are using images from Mirtillamente. The theme for October is Anything Goes with an optional twist of your favorite beverage! Bring on the coffee! 😉 My card uses the Margaret Coffee image.

Thank Goodness For October

Yes indeed, thank goodness for October! It’s truly my favorite month and I aim to savor every bit of it. It’s finally cool enough for me to not be hot all the time! I could go for a year of October days!

Today I’m showcasing a new digi set from Polka Dot Orchard. I love this fabulous background. I spotlighted a few of the pumpkins by coloring them with a Copic marker. The sentiment is just perfect for me.

All Polka Dot Orchard’s new sets are on sale now! I used the Thank Goodness For October set. Check out our fun and soon to be very interactive FB group, Friends of Polka Dot Orchard. We’ve got new daily design team member posts, challenges and an IG hop coming up soon!

Life happens, Coffee helps

Hello, and welcome back to the Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge. This week we are using some fun and spunky images from Mirtillamente. Of course, coffee always makes a fun card for me. I’m using the Margaret Coffee image, along with a sentiment from Picket Fence Studios.

Thankful, Grateful, Blessed

Checking in for our mid-month challenge over at Jan’s Digital Images. I’m using one of her new sets, Fresh From the Farm. The leaf and acorn branch is one of Jan’s pre-colored images and the sentiment is part of another new set, Autumn Leaves. I fussy cut the leaf and acorn branch and popped it up with popdots. I embossed a background layer and added several gems. Have I mentioned I love fall? I’m so happy to be making fall cards. Come join Jan’s challenge, always Anything Goes.

Fresh From the Farm (3555J)

Autumn Leaves (4010J)

Happy Halloween

Ooo, I had so much fun with this cutie Witches Hat image from alldressedupstamps on Etsy. I added a Happy Halloween sentiment from a Tim Holtz set.

Come join us for our Outlawz Monday Greetings challenge the next two weeks. The greeting theme is Halloween with the option of black and white with a pop of color.

Autumn Road Trip

Autumn is my FAVORITE time of year by far! I’m so excited for all things pumpkin and cozy! I just love this new set of Jan’s Digital Stamp Shop, Fresh From The Farm. I love visiting the pumpkin patch and apple orchard. Apple Cider Donuts? MMMmmmm!

For this card, I used Jan’s pre-colored set. I fussy cut the two pumpkins out and popped one up on pop dots. A few gems and a banner sentiment. An autumn Cuttlebug embossing folder and we’re good to go!
