EDIT:  I guess I cannot guarantee a pre-post on Blogger.  This post was scheduled for Saturday morning and I just realized today (WEDNESDAY!!) that it had never been published.  So Sorry.  I will have to keep a closer eye on my pre-posts.

Delightful Inspiration's Saturday Challenge

It's my week to take a turn being the host and coming up with the challenge theme.

Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere...We are almost finished with Halloween and getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving and pumpkins are still quite popular through the month of November. Make a card or project that includes at least one pumpkin.

I am inviting you to play along with us at Delightful Inspiration this week.  Go ahead and get a head start on your Thanksgiving cards or maybe a fall card just to let someone know that you are thankful for them.  I used the "Stitched Pumpkin" digi from D2D, but as I was looking through the store, there are quite a few different pumpkin images that would have worked.  It was a tough decision, but this one won out. 
Stamps: Stitched Pumpkin (D2D), Sentiment (Hampton Arts)
Paper: Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holiday Collection (DCWV)
Coloring: Copics
Misc: Oval die (Spellbinders), Ticket Corner punch (SU!), button, floss.
Just a personal note to let you know that I ended up taking more time off from my blog and creating than I had planned.  I married my best friend, Rob in The Smoky Mountains on October 11th and we spent a wonderful week exploring the wonderful sites that the Gatlinburg area has to offer.  The Fall foliage was outstanding and I was able to get some breath-taking photos.

The Smoky Mountains were as smoky as ever!

A wonderful weekend to you!

New Home


A simple little new home card.  I kept the design pretty simple since it will most likely go to a couple.  I absolutely love this house design by Whimsy & Stars Studio.  A cute little house on a hill surrounded by lots of that is my kind of home! I added Glossy Accents to the heart.

Stamps - Home (Whimsy & Stars Studio), Sentiment (Heidi Grace)
Paper - Black & White Collection (Making Memories)
Coloring - Copics
Misc - Brads, Glossy Accents, Square dies (Spellbinders), Blue ink (sponging)

A quick post today...lots to do this week and not enough hours!

Bubble Fun

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a fun, relaxing weekend and if you are a card maker, I hope you had time to make lots of cards in honor of World Cardmaking Day.  I did get a few done and this is one of them.  I have been looking for a cute bubble bath image and this one, "Bubble Leah" from Whimsie Doodles was the final choice.  I colored it all pink and cute with my Copics.  I added Glossy Accents to the bubbles and the glass.  The bubbles on the sentiment are clear dew drops and I have had them forever and that is no exaggeration.  I had to have them years ago when they were so popular and never, ever used one of them.  I was looking for an accent for the sentiment and they made perfect bubbles.  Two sentiments are included with this digi.  Nothing better than a nice, relaxing bubble bath :)
