I’ve had several stars cut with this fun dangled stars die.  Finally used them!

Love this sentiment, and it seemed so perfect for this starry night card.

The large rhinestone star sticker was adhered to a paper die cut star before popping it up on the card.  The sentiment is also popped up on dimensionals.

Used some Copics to color up this great image.


The fabulous plaid patterned paper helped give the card a masculine feel which was wanted since it will be for hubby’s birthday.


The inside sentiment was printed from my computer.  Thought it was super cute.

I have had this image for some time and was so happy to color it and create this happy fall card.


I love this time of year.. now, but it hasn’t always been this way.  When I had my four rambunctious little boys that loved playing outside, fall was a sad time for me.  It meant all that energy was going to be confined inside!  We lived in a Chicago suburb and had a large unfinished basement.  So my hubby screwed swings into the joists and we laid down gym mats on the floor.  We would bring in their hotwheels and let them ride circles around the central staircase.  It helped, but was still no substitute for the great outdoors.

But now all four are grown and married and have lots of little rugrat rambunctious-ness of their own to deal with!  And my feelings of the season have changed, too! 

Used several of my favorite elements like a button and linen thread and a doily and scalloped circle and of course my Copics. Popped up some of the layers just for fun.


Lots of autumn based challenges this week/month for inspiration.
