Fruits of My Labors--More Cards

I don't know about you, but I am sort of glad Halloween is over.  I think I have made more cards this year than I have ever made.  Although it is not my favorite holiday it is one I enjoy, especially when those cute little beggers come to the door begging treats!  They are just too adorable.  I found a little time to craft this weekend and these are the fruits of my labors.

This first card I cut out a tree, then overstamped it and added blue gems to pick up the color in the background.  Found this gorgeous green ribbon and an easel card was born!

Anything Goes.  Optional add a bit of bling.  I have added gems to my tree
and the background is sparkly but you can't see it in my photo.

Back to these adorable little critters.  They look like they are having tons of fun jumping in the leaves.  This certainly brings back some fond childhood memories.  My dad used to rake leaves and then we kids would spend hours jumping in them. 

Sew What.. I did faux stitching around my tag and the scallop border

Autumn Colors

I won this stamp some time ago and I never used it until the other day.  I was pretty pleased with the outcome.  I am sure it is a stamp that I will use again, now that I remember I have it.
No Girls Allowed

I started with one of those $1.00 sewing kits from Joanne Fabrics.  Thought they would make a nice item to keep in your desk drawer for those "little" emergencies.  However you know how we crafters are....Ya just gotta alter it.
Anything Goes - past or present.
