TSOT #482 Happy Fall/Autumn

 Hello and happy fall/Autumn . This is the time of year in Ohio when we have cooler weather, that means leaves changing, bonfires, and jackets to ward off the colder temperatures, I enjoy this time of year.  

I decided to get out my art impressions stamps. Made this scene, it was the first time I had done one like it. I should have tried to get some colored leaves on the ground under the trees guess they haven't started loosing their leaves yet.  I was using a bigger tree and only inking up part of it to stamp, that made it a little bit more difficult, I need to do more like this to practice. Thought it would work for the sketch and theme of Autumn this week, what do you think?

thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll join us in this theme/sketch have a wonderful day.

TSOT # 479 Oct.12 Foxy Friend

I decided to make a shaped insert for a regular card base---

Not sure I finished my posting in time for Tuesdays page launch.  I had a bit of time to work on my Foxy itty ball pop up earlier in the day then finished the blog post after 11pm.  I used products from a few different company's so if your interested just let me know what your interested in in the comments below.  I didn't get a belly band made for the card, that's how I'm having it stay closed until the recipient receives it.   Thanks for stopping by lots of the others made really great rocking cards.

                                                Foxy popped up

                                                      here foxy is flattened

well I thought I'd try to add a video of the foxy pop up in action.  I've tried to add video's before and it never worked so this may not either. If not I'm sorry I may need some guidance  :0

Joy of Sets Blog Hop - Harvest

 I was so glad to be able to Eek out some time to take part in this months Blog Hop with the theme Harvest.  That is exactly what I have been doing with my garden for the last few months, Canning and Freezing all that is in the garden.

  My husband and I were able to go on a mini vacation last month  to Holmes County, while there  we saw a few corn shocks in the Amish fields.  It was a nice time and we enjoyed the time away from all our responsibilities.  I had good help staying with my mother-in-law and just left all the chores that didn't get done before we left -at home, You know for some reason  they were waiting for us when we got home 3 days later!! 

I made a "note pad" holder for someone.  There is a post it note pad inside and I used to have pens that fit in these mini tins, but I couldn't find any so must have used them all.  I sold these at a craft fair years ago, they were well liked.

There are 16 of us participating, a good number. Jumping around won't take you to long so go grab a cup of coffee or tea or soda.... and enjoy!!!
