Howdy everyone!

It's been a few days and I'm sorry! I've been busy at putting together my daughter & her friends brag books from their Florida trip. I made 2 brag books for them. I made the mistake of getting the 6 x 6 albums and not the 8 x 8. I find it harder to do the smaller albums. Each were 20 layouts long. Not too bad, but the pictures were 4 x 6 so I had some "creative" cropping to do.

If you scroll down to the bottom you can see it....

I wanted to first say that The Angel Company has another contest going on. This is a good one too! I will leave it at the top of my blog for you all to see and join in on. Nothing to buy, just enter the contest. Hey, you just might win!!

Here is a card that I made the other day. Like I said, I've been a little too busy to show you.

I am in a swap and the theme is multi stamps. You've got to use more than one stamp on a card. Well, this one I used 3. They are all from the same set from the Angel Company called "Pick of the Patch". I don't know about you, but with the kids going back to school it brings autumn memories. Well, at least I am wishing for autumn ~ I'm tired of the heat of summer!

Anyway, the card base is Close to Cocoa layered with Chocolate Chip and a creamy shimmer paper that I don't know where it came from!

I basically stamped all the images on white paper and colored them with my pencils and gamsol. I then layered the image panel on to the creamy shimmer paper and Chocolate Chip. I used my paper peircer around the shimmer panel, added a photo corner with some orange ribbon, added the arrow with the saying and that was it. Even with all the coloring it was a quick card.

And like I said before, ahhhh. Thoughts of autumn. It is my favorite holiday for sure! And halloween, I just love halloween! I love to make cards for it, I love to decorate for it.... Everything about it is just a fun holiday!! So here is the start of my halloween card collection this year.

I stamped the image from TAC's "spooktacular" set and colored it with pencils. It's kinda hard to tell in this picture. I cut around the image and placed it on to a peice of Basic Black that I punched out with my Mega Scallop circle punch. I layered that on to a piece of Punpkin Pie that was punched with my Giga Scallop circle punch and layered that on to a piece of orange cs that I sponged with black ink. All of that was layered on to a piece of Heidi Grace Jeepers Creepers dots paper. I love Heidi Grace!!

I added a photo corner with ribbon and the sentiment panel, added some dots with my gel pens and I was done. 2 down, lots more to go!!

I hope that you all have a wonderful day! I've got some more school shopping to do with a very picky 16 year old girl (who starts school this friday - woo hoo!!) so I might not be around for a couple of days!!

Have a good one!
Hugs ~ Joani
