SoSS challenge-leaves

Here is a card I'm entering at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers L is for Leaves challenge-

When I would rake leaves for my mom, it would be at the break of dawn. Here in Southern Oregon, September and October could feel like August! The leaves look like easter eggs to me, but they are leaves! One year we bagged over 200 bags of leaves off of 2 good sized silver maples. Hence the sentiment! Here is a material list-
  1. Stamp: fox with rake, sentiment (Taylored Expressions, Calendar Grumpling), colored with Copics.
  2. Stencil: sun rays (Tim Holtz).
  3. Dies: leaves, grass (Impression Obsession).
Have a good day looking forward to trees dropping leaves!

Black & White

The challenge at Dies R Us is Black & White-no color! This is my project-

The dies I used are Memory Box Stitched Rectangles for the gatefold piece, and Anna Griffin Flower Bramble for the card overlay. The paper is Neenah Solar white and Michaels black cardstock, and the flower is from my stash. I have not put a sentiment on it yet because this can be used for a lot of occasions-sympathy, birthday, thank you, etc.

Thanks for visiting!

J is for Junk!

This time, the challenge is J for Junk at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! Here is my project-

See that earring in front of the card? I took all the danglies and put them on my card!  I glued the rhinestone portion of the danglies to the cardstock, but hooked up the jump rings through the die cuts for some interest. The die plates are from Birch Press, and the sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. Great way to recycle this lonely earring!

Mental Hospital

Love the challenges at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! This time it's C for coloring, and I colored this image with my Prismacolor pencils!

I have so many friends I could send this too! We do have some weird conversations, and I've thought this exact same sentiment many times. The woman image is from She used to Care (Unity Stamp Co.) and the sentiment is from I'm Here I Love You (also Unity Stamp Co.). The card stock is all out of my stash-I'm still working on getting it down to a manageable level-hah!
