Autumn Blessings

Hello friends, I have a sweet little Autumn card for you today.   I just love this season and we just don't get much change here in the desert! I so miss the smell of Autumn, the crunch of the leaves as you walk and most of all apple picking!  I can't wait to move back east so we have the seasons again.  I am using 2 awesome sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Autumn Leaves and Grateful Greetings both of which are 20% off right now.  I stamped with distress inks onto watercolor paper, added the sentiments with memento ink and heat embossed to make them stand out  and just layered away.

Beauty By The Sea

Hi friends,  I made a quick set of cards using Beauty  By The Sea from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps.   I am a lover of the beach and a very big fan of collecting sea shells.  I especially love spending time on Sanibel Island which is on the Gulf side of Florida, it is the number one destination in the world to collect shells.  I just did some simple stamping with some distress inks and paired the images with this awesome paper from The Paper Studios.  This Set is 20% off right now so make sure you check it out along with the other great sets that are discounted.
