New Fall card

Hello stampng friends,

   Most of the kids went back to school this morning here in Fitchburg,so it was quiet around the neighborhood. My son K.J doesn't go back until Sept 7th so he gets an extra week.
   I figured now that school has started and some of the leaves are already changing here, that I would start shifting into a Fall mode for cards and plus I got the new stamp set French Foliage. I had many birthday cards I had to send out the month of September. World Card making day is coming up too, I think we'll make this card in October.
    This card was cased from Cynthia Ann Doyon. I changed the colors up and added words behind the images. sponged all edges. I got the ribbon really cheap at a craft store and had for about two years and thought this would be a great way to use it up. I really liked the way it turned out. 
  Recipe for card
  Stamps: French Foliage, Sincere Salutations
   Inks: More Mustard, Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze
  Card Stock: Cajun Craze base,Confetti Creme, Rich Razzleberry,
  Accessories: Ribbon from local craft store, lg Decorative label punch,Lg Oval punch, sponges. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by and have a good evening. Til next time.
Happy stamping

The next card I'm going to make is for my will be 17.Masculine cards are hard enough but teen masculine is going to be tougher. He's not quite an adult but not a young teen either.He loves to play rock band and guitar hero so I'm thinking maybe the extreme guitar stamp set single from Stampin' up! But what colors? Hmmm. Wish me luck.  Here is the recipe for the card below.

Inks: Crumb Cake,Marina Mist, Early Espresso,Basic Black
Card Stock: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Confetti Cream

Another design for the SAS this weekend

Hi all,
  Here is another one of the designs we will be making in our Christmas SAS this weekend coming. I know it should have been posted sooner but I had that bad case of poison ivy and it was on my arm and near my hand and I didn't want to make cards in fear that it would get all over the card stock and sets, I was pretty oozy there for a few days, but now it's all dried up and looking and feeling better. I'm much more comfortable. Also a quick note that MA is having a tax free weekend this weekend the 14th and 15th of this month. Now is a good time if your from Ma to place an order either with me or online on my DBWS if you need supplies or product you'll get SU merchandise tax free this weekend. I can't wait I know I have an order that I will be putting in. Just a quick up date. Thanks for stopping by Til next time ,have a good day.
Happy Stamping!
