My heart is a flutter!

Hey! Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of Autumn. Today was a sweet taste of that with a high of 60 degrees at our house. Just a bit nippy, but a nice change from the 80s and 90s. I have to say I'm finally getting in the mood for the beauty that can only be fall!
This little card was one I created using Unity stamps...both the sentiment and image. They're unmounted red rubber images that have cling foam on the back and they adhere to my clear blocks and I have to say I LOVE THEM! They stamp such a clean, clear image and are so easy to clean up and store. Uh oh...this has trouble written all over it :)
Well, off to have some spaghetti that my sweet husband cooked up for us - yum! Have a great evening! Brenda

My Wish

Happy Wednesday (hump day)! I got the idea for these flowers from someone's blog and can't remember whose, I apologize. I had all these decorative bingo cards lying around and when I saw this idea, I was all over it. I could never quite figure out how to incorporate them into my pages and/or cards, and thought this was ingenious. Just freehanded the flowers and then cut them out, placing fun little flowers or brads in the middle for added flair. I love how the page turned out AND a bonus is I used old pictures from when the kids were so little *sigh* Hope you are having a great week so far...already the middle of September, and I've noticed the trees are beginning their change to fall colors. One of my favorite times of year! Have a great afternoon and evening! Brenda

Friends...are a wonderful thing!

Hey! How was your weekend? We ended up having a pretty good day yesterday, even though it was cloudy for much of the day. The sun finally came out and I personally was much happier :) We took the kids bowling in Thermop and boy, have I gotten bad at that game!'s been too long since I've bowled - ha!
Here's a little clipboard I created featuring one of my sweet friends. Isn't it just the cutest? I used some papers I've had for awhile (yea!) and just had a blast creating this little project. It really took no time at all, but I'm loving the way it turned out. Way cute... I think these would be great Christmas gifts for family and friends.
Hope your week is off to a great start. Hugs! Brenda

Happy Wednesday!

Hi there! Wow - already the middle of the week and still hot as ever here in Wyoming. No complaints...not ready for the snow just yet :) The grasshoppers, however, are about to carry everything away and I joke not. Just standing in the kitchen window and looking out at the front yard, it looks as if it's "alive", there's so much movement. Yuck! Hopefully they'll all die soon and not be so terrible next year. So, onto more pleasant topics. How bout this card? I am so happy with how it turned out. I've really been on a kick lately to use up some of the awesome scraps I have left over from scrappin projects. This card is made from Bazill Basics c/s and the beautiful blue and green scraps are SU. I added a little bling and buttons, and the "so much" is a rub on. Leave me your comments to let me know what you think...I love to read what everyone has to say. Have a fabulous Wednesday and rest of your week! Hugs - Brenda
