~The Frost is on the Pumpkins~

I am sooo excited to share this card with you! Jeannie Phillips, a very talented woman that I met on the Cricut Message Board , gives away a Free Card each Wednesday and each month she has a guest designer and she has asked me to be her guest designer for the month of September!!!! Y'all need to go over to her blog and check out the cards that we will be giving away this month, you just might win both cards !!
I'm sure most of you have figured out that Fall is my favorite season! And we had some chilly mornings in Alabama last week...yippeeee!!! Pumpkins rank right up there with crows, sunflowers and scarecrows,with me, so I had to make another card with them featured.This paper screamed my name ( paper can whisper my name and I will buy it, who am I kiddin?!? )
PDDU was used for the pumpkins, cut at 51/2" and 31/2", 3 times.Inside pumpkin was cut at 21/2".
SYI was used for the swirls, cut 2 times at 31/2".
Jasmine was used for the corners, cut at 31/2", 2 times.
LOTS of popping and inking.I used 2 different sizes of Nestabilities scalloped ovals, and added some Recollections pearls to the swirls. I added a touch of glitter spray to the tops of the pumpkins,to make it look like frost! Thanks so much for taking a peek at my art!!!!



Joy, I absolutely love this card. The colors are fantastic, and your pumpkins are fantastic.


This card is adorable, I too love the Autumn, misty mornings and the lovely colours of the trees changing. This card sums it up for me. I should be an honorary American as I could really "do" Halloween :-)


Joy, this is just wonderful! Love pumpkins!

Joy--I was lucky enough to win the cards on Jeannie's blog and I received your card this morning. I want to tell you, the picture doesn't do it justice! It is absolutely beautiful!!! I will have a hard time using it; but when I do, I will be giving it to someone who will truly appreciate it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I hope someday to be able to make cards like this.

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
