PTI October Blog Hop



Yes, it is that time of the month again.... time for the PTI October Blog Hop! 
Creating from a photo inspiration is always a challenge for me, but I love the beautiful fabrics and the cute, soft little pumpkins. Can you believe that I do not have one pumpkin image in my entire stampin' arsenal? So, just using my textures, papers and other stamps to finesse a bit of Fall flavor.

I'm off to sew my oldest son's adult-sized kangaroo costume...... wish me luck! Happy Halloween!

PTI Make It Monday #37: Layered Mats and Frames


I love to create for the PTI Make It Monday challenges! Here's a birthday card with a lovely turquoise, aqua and yellow combo. All of the dies, stamps and ribbon are PTI, in addition to some miscellaneous patterned paper from my stash. It's a bit difficult to see the layering in this photo..... but it's there!
Enjoy your Sunday afternoon...... it's a beautiful Fall day here in upstate NY!

CAS-ual Fridays CFC#22- Feeling Loopy

Ever the procrastinator........ here is my contribution to CAS-ual Fridays Feeling Loopy challenge!
The little flowers are made from a 7/8 inch wide grosgrain ribbon using the method that I've seen demonstrated on many crafty blogs.....sometimes called a "fringed flower" and usually made with felt, (which is most certainly a bit more sturdy and doesn't fray like ribbon does/might). 
Thanks for taking a peek!
