The snow has finally melted and it seems as if Fall is now making it's presence here in Bend, Oregon. The trees around our town were badly damaged from the snow, it was sad :( Due to the leaves still on the trees, the snow simply weighed down the branches and broke their limbs. Driving around town it looked as if a windy-storm had came through. It was so sad.
The day before the snow storm hit, I picked up some pumpkins and decorated outside our door. I am really looking forward to pulling out the Christmas decorations :)
I have really missed being a part of a scrappy-design team lately. I know I don't have tons of time to commit with my busy little button shop, but I truly miss it. When I saw a call for new designers at Card-A-Licious, I knew I had to apply. I LOVE making cards. To me, they are like little mini scrapbooking pages, without the photos! I was very excited when I was accepted to be a part of this fun gig! Every other week, we are given a challenge. For my first round it was: Create a birthday card that uses Red, Blue and Yellow. Here is the card I came up with!
I have not purchased any NEW supplies in a long time so this card was made using goodies from my old stash. The scalloped paper is by October Afternoon, the blue paper is Karen Russell, the polka dot paper is (I think) Jenni Bowlin. The Scalloped tag is by Jenni Bowlin. The yellow flower is by Urban Lily (are they still even around?) and a rub on by Fontwerks. Oh, and of course that is one of my handmade red buttons :)
Oh, I almost forgot! I've set up a page on Facebook for my Button shop! I will share new designs, as well as give special offers and discounts to fans periodically! Come say hi!
Have a wonderful day, friends!
