Valentine card creations...

 Here are the cards I have just created for Valentine's Day. I do lots of card swaps with other crafters, so I thought I would post my latest creations. I used a key embossing folder and lots of distress inks. The tag is a rubber stamp by Tim Holtz. The bottom card is also done with an embossing folder-man I love those things. I wonder if I could even make a card without using one anymore. The folders are definatley my new go to thing.

Winter Tags

 Here's a couple of Yuletide tags I made this year. I love this little die cut house. The die is by Tim Holtz, and it's actually meant to be a haunted house, but I turned it into a winter themed house this time around. I was quite pleased with how they turned out.

Halloween card for this year!

I know I have been so far behind on this blog, and I promise to do better, but for now here is a cute little card I made for thr Halloween season this year.

Backing Up A Bit

  Halloween was all over the place this year as we were traveling a good bit. To start the weekend off we had tickets to a ballgame. After that we went down by the river park I love to visit. For dinner we went to a place that's sadly closing down now called Chilli Willi's-boo hoo. I'm so sad to see it go. We also had a drink from the special crystal skull set my boyfriend brought along. The pumpkin which isn't carved is one my boyfriend made for me when I was sick earlier in the week. He knows how much I look forward to pumpkin carving each year, but I honestly didn't feel up to it, so he created Jack for me wit a black sharpie marker. Yes, he gets lots of brownie points for that! haha Back to the weekend...we often visit the pumpkin house where they normally have over 3,000 carved pumkins. I like getting shots of a few of my favorites each year. This year my favorites were the north/south/east/west one as well as the greenman pumpkin! On the actual dayof Halloween I had to do some traveling for work and pretty much spent most of the night driving in the rain and fog, but all in all it was still nice.
