Perfect day at the patch!
Although fall is my fav time of year, it felt more like an indian summer!   Nice and 68 degrees today.  A bit warmer than usual.
But, hey,  we'll take it with winter in the wings.  
Fun time stompin around in the mug searching for just the right round bundle of orange to take home.  Success!

Paper Pumpkin October

Did you receive your October paper pumpkin?
You NEED to sign up!  Look at this month's beautiful cards!

I always love to recreate my paper pumpkin kits.  Sometimes I do exactly what it looks like, but this time I wanted a more muted natural look to my Thanksgiving cards.

Laurel Wreaths hand drawn


Thought it would be fun for you to try a hand at adding some laurel wreaths to your already stamped cards.  I used the Suite Seasons stamp set and stamped Give Thanks in Soft Suede ink.  Then using the Soft Suede stampin write marker drew the laurels.  
       Give it a try and have fun trying something new today!
                                  Here are the samples

Ronald McDonald House

Scary clowns no,  Ronald McDonald YES!  especially when it means you get to go and create memories and laughter with families children who are battling cancer.  This is an activity that I have participated in for years, every third thursday of the month and it never gets old.

We made these cute blow pops covered with two pieces of tissue paper and tied with orange ribbon and googlie eyes.
These were a hit!  the kids were running around with them making booooooo booooo noises.  I'm sure the parents loved me once they went home.  :)

Kirstin created this cute treat bag that they filled with goodies.
(Highlight of the night- CANDY!!)

Acorn Kisses

Blessing your feed this morning with these small cauuute acorn kisses.  I found a tutorial on youtube for these fall cuties.
Start by cutting cardstock color of your choice, measurement is
4 x 3/4", then score at 1", 2" and 3" then fold up and glue together to create a triangle.  Fill the triangle with one hershey's kiss. 
The acorn's are stamped and punched out with a coordinating punch.  (look below)

Use these cute acorns as table favors for Thanksgiving or a luncheon or kids class treats.  They are super quick and easy to make.

Acorny builder punch - #139681 for $18.00

Give Thanks

Wouldn't you like to give water coloring another try?
This card was made by using the Woodland embossing folder.  
The embossing folders are used by running them through the Big Shot machine, which then in turns embosses the image right into the cardstock.   I used the aqua painter and some crumb cake ink to water color the background of the paper.   I cut out the center with the oval framelit and stamped the give thanks stamp on the left over oval piece cut in half and placed at the bottom.
