Happy Fall Ya All!

Good Morning!
Can you feel fall in the air where you are? We
even have leaves turning... it's way early for this
kinda stuff! It's Tuesday and that means I have
an Artful INKables creation to share with you!

I used three Artful INKable sets on this card... Plant Prints,
On the Farm and In My Garden. All three sets can be found
in the Artful INKables store. If you've never visited the store
you should go take a look see! Not only are the stamps great
quality they are very reasonably priced! I love the leaves on this
card! I stamped my leaves from Plant Prints, tone on tone, I then
cut them out and wrinkled them up... What do you think? Are they
cool or what? Pop over the Artful INKables blog there is a new
Think INK challenge starting today!
I am entering in these challenges:
Our Daily Bread texture it
CES anything goes
Totally Stampalicious texture
There are 3 spots left in the Artful INKables swap on SCS!
Don't miss out on your chance to swap with some of the best stampers
out there, and to get a Design Team members card!
Our DT member and host, Tanya, has even offered up 
something a little extra for the swapper who takes the last spot!

Anybody need Chocolate?

Good Evening!
It's the weekend YAY! Well almost for me! I have
a half day of work tomorrow! I created a CASE card
using another wheel! Check out the card Heather made
here... is that not the coolest card evvvvvv-er? I have 
several wheels that need to see some lovin so I had to 

I rolled my wheel in versa mark and then in early espresso.
I then used clear EP and heat embossed the image. So
fun! Have a great weekend... have to go do my night job =)

Good Morning!
I am really late posting today! At least I have a card...
didn't know if I would be able to squeeze one in! I did 
this card for OLW17! I used one of my SU wheels to 
create the border!Can't remember it's name.... I'm at 
work and can't go check :) We are to keep embellies
to a minimum... I only have 3 but they are pretty big!

My picture doesn't do this card justice! The color is way more
vibrant! My flowers have sparkles!
That's it for today! Quick and simple!
See you tomorrow!
