Notably Ornate

I guess I'm on a roll today, two posts in one day, lol. I'm watching the Vikings and Lion's game while patiently waiting for the Packer game to start. The craft fair yesterday was not so good. It started raining at 6:30 AM while we were setting up and did not stop until 2 PM which was one hour before the craft fair ended. I did appreciate all those who came out in the rain anyway, especially my friends and daughter. It made the rain tolerable. Thank you all.

Now, to the 2nd card of the day. I bought this stamp set (Notably Ornate) with a scrapbook page in mind but thought I would try some cards with it. For some reason the scanner did some funny things with the black outline, trust me it is prettier in person.


I saw a Halloween card similar to this on the SU demonstrator's Web Site. I just had to try my hand at it. It was fast and easy to make with the "Spider Web" embossing folder and punches by Stampin' Up. It will make a great Halloween card for one of my Grandson's.

Well, with the weather changing from warm to cold then back to warm and now cold again, I got a head cold. Hate, hate being sick! Just feeling sorry for myself, cause I know nobody else likes being sick either, lol.

Soooo, let's get back to the reason for this post. I was playing around with my large Sunflower stamp and thought I would share with you the card I made. The photo doesn't do justice to this card. I used Basic Black, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

Guess I will go to bed now and get some sleep. Hopefully, I can get rid of this cold fast. I have a craft show next Saturday that I need to get ready for.

Batty For you

Where has the summer gone? The start of Fall is in 2 weeks. Kids are back to school and I am planning which craft fairs I will be participating in. I do love the fall weather, shorts and a sweatshirt is my favorite attire. With fall, comes Halloween so you need to start planning which cards you are going to create. I love to send my grandchildren cards for every occasion. I created a folder on my computer a couple of years ago of all the cards I make for family. Don't want to repeat a card, lol.

For this card, I wanted to use up some of my retired designer series paper. I like how each piece of Stampin' Up's Designer Series Paper coordinates with each other. Makes it so easy to create a card or scrapbook page.

The stamp set Batty For You has been around for a while and I hope it doesn't retire next year. For now I am going to keep using is as much as possible, just in case. I used Basic Black, Old Olive, Whisper White and retired DSP to create this card. The wiggly eyes I think is a cute addition. Hope you like it.

2nd Brewer's layout

I did a second layout to complete my grandson's memory of his first Brewer's game.

The card stock used to complete these pages was More Mustard, Real Red, Whisper White and Night of Navy.

Go Brewers Go

With the Milwaukee Brewers in the

pennant race and doing well, I thought

I would share the scrapbook layout we

did at one of our scrapbook classes. This was my Grandson's first Brewer's game. I picked up the Brewer's logo at a rummage sale. I was so excited when I found them.
