Ready for Fall?


Can you believe it's Labor Day weekend and the summer is "unofficially" over? I can't. It's amazing how time flies. This weekend we are going out for your 8 year anniversary even though it's Sept 9. And of course we will have a BBQ on Monday with some friends. So are you ready for fall?

When I saw Lauren's sketch for this week I thought of these butterflies instantly! I got the Cuttlebug step step butterfly set. I forget what it is called exactly and I think its fairly new. It comes with a die to cut the butterfly shape and 4 embossing folders so that you can can emboss the butterfly using 4 different patterns. I picked this up in July at a stamp convention and now I'm finally using it. But I love how it worked out. The large butterfly in the middle is the Cuttlebugged one and the two smaller ones were created using a Martha Stewart punch. I just got all punchy this week! LOLOL!! NO STAMPS!!! I know it's crazy! I started with Vanilla (SU) as my base. The cool background paper I found in my stash of stuff and I'm not sure who it is by. The brown is Choclate Chip (SU) and green is Mellow Moss (SU). I punched the butterfly from a glitter paper pack by DCWV. And the cool little embellishments are "The Robin's Eggs" "crystals".

Here is yet another fall card for you. Every Thursday is HIP HOP Thursday at Unity in the SCS forums. It's super rockin, if you haven't checked it out it's a must! This past Thursday the girls had a challenge for fun to make a card with buttons! Are you button challenged? I used to love using buttons but haven't as much lately. Here is my button card using the Unity Kit Giggle Groove. If you love challenges and love Unity Stamps then also be sure to check out the SCS forum each Wednesday for a new fun challenge. This week's challenge was to case one of the DT members, here was my card.

Well that's if for today. Off I go to look at twin beds for my babies!! OH MY! I can't believe they are 2 1/2.

Till later.....
