Hello Dahlias

Hey Everyone.. I know..! I am back with another card today..! Yeah me :) I have been stalking the set Regarding Dahlias since the set came out in the new catty, and I finally broke down and got it my last order..I have spied SO many Uber gorgeous creations with this set, I  hope I can do it justice. Here is my go at it -
I kept it real simple considering this gorgeous bloom needs no help at all. I layered the two Elegant eggplant blooms once, and the Primrose Petals one three times to help it stand out a little more. Hello Dahlia.,. I think this is going to a beautiful friendship. :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Riding by..

Hello Everyone... I had time to get another sample yesterday.. SQUEE! I broke out this months Paper Pumpkin kit, made some cards from the kit, and felt inspired to make a card from the scraps on my desk. To me that is the one reason I really love Paper can make the cards in the kit, but you get to keep the Exclusive stamps, .. I have yet to be disappointed with any of the kits.. really! Here is my inspired card -  
Cute Right? I used up some of the Crisp Cantaloupe DSP scraps, and love the outcome. :) SU is offering a Paper Pumpkin Promo that ends this month if you would like to get your hands on these exclusive stamps.. your first 2 months of the Paper Pumpkin subscription is 1/2 off,  just $10 a month. So if you have had it on your list, this is the time..:) OK, off to get the day finished so I can play some more later.. it is a long weekend right! Whoop! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Cantaloupe Love

Hey Everyone.. :) It's been awhile, and I have missed you, so I hunkered down today and decided I need to play with some stuff from the holiday catalog. I also haven't really touched any of the new in colors for this year... Got my work cut out for me right? Well here is my creation for today -
I used the new Expressions thinlits dies, and some new papers, Smokey Slate, and Crisp Cantaloupe.
If you look close, I used the Oh, Goodie! too, just hard to see in this picture. I wanted the Smokey Slate "Love" to stand out a little more than the white ones, so I die cut three of them and glued them together.. Really made a difference.. OK, I am going to try to get another sample done, so I can come back tomorrow... :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
