Goodies, layout and card!

Hi there, it's me!!! Yes, got the afternoon off, that's great, I really enjoy it!

Last week I ordered some goodies at my LSS's...... hardly ever do that cause I like to shop and see and touch before I buy, but, as my LSS's aren't as local as I would like them to be, this was a lot cheaper than spending 30 bucks on gas!

This I ordered at The Scrapping Bug, a store in Kitchener, about 1,5 hours from here! Love the mini-alphas, I couldn't find them in a store close by!

My Mind's Eye Snowed In..... aren't those papers gorgeous? Don't like them as much as Be Merry,but they were all sold out, guess more people liked those better ha, ha.! This, and what you see under here is ordered at the Memory Keeper in Hamilton, about 1 hour from here!

Some Basic Grey Granola and Archaic

And more BG, Boxer this is, love that line and since I'm into Vintage, I thought these papers were perfect! Got some Distress ink too, and got to play with it yesterday, because I was enjoying a COMPLETE day off!!!!!

A small detail of the folded corner


This picture was taken on October 13th, Thanksgiving in Canada. We spent the afternoon at friends who have a pumpkin farm, and a gorgeous cornfield. I just took some pictures, and loved this one, altered it a bit in PhotoFiltre, distressed the edges of the paper with the distresser, and with Tea Dye distress ink, used leaves and more stuff of the cornstalk at my frontdoor, some flowers, bling, and spent 45 minutes cutting out the title!

Another detail of some........whatever it may be, it's from the cornstalk!!

And I told you, I'm off this afternoon so decided to make a Christmas card, saw something like this in a magazine, only the Santa and text was done with a stamp. As I don't have a stamp like that, I used a Christmas font on my computer, and I really like how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
