Hi Everyone!
Welcome everyone to “Fall in love with Autumn” blog hop.
Featuring a fall wreath collection:
Let me just start with how much I heart fall {sigh}.  Leave’s turning gorgeous shades of orange, red and brown.  The crisp air, aroma’s of hot cocoa and apple cider from the apple orchards where we pick apples. Making apple butter & my most yummy apple cake! Oh, I can go on and on!  Well with that being said I have a treat for all of you today I have a group of talented ladies that can’t wait to share with you their fall wreath that they created for this gorgeous season.  We hope to inspire you and “fall in love with autumn”!  Enjoy! J
Ok, so a walking we will go...if you came from Tayna's then you're in right place, if not then you may want to start from the beginning at Misses Crafty's . The complete line up is listed at the bottom in case you get lost along the way.

I've seen these yarn wreaths & t-shirt flowers all over Pinterest, so I thought I would give it a try. This will be an indoor wreath since our front door is exposed to the elements. Sorry, for the bad pictures.

Next up is Janea, but before you go wandering off, you'll probably want to read about the Blog Candy aka "Doggie Treats"

I had a lot of fun making this & will definitely make another one after my slight little learning curve. To make the wreath I used a styrofoam wreath which I bought w/a 50% off coupon, otherwise they are too expensive. Yarn of course, an old t-shirt I got from the thrift store a while back (for this purpose), some canvas from an old apron, which I sprayed green w/a mixture of green fabric paint & water then heat set it with an iron, some buttons I was going to use for another project (still have more), an old belt for the hanger part & glue gun. I was so thrilled with myself when I came across this belt, it's perfect because you can adjust the wreath to has as low or as high as you want. Found an old one of my son's that I can totally use for another wreath. Think belts are going to be added to my list of thrift store wants. Hope this inspires you to make one!

Lluvia aka Misses Crafty, who put this hop together has some yummy "Doggie Treats" up for grabs. She is offering up a $20.00 gift card to Michaels or Joanns! You choose! The rules are as follows; you must become a follower of each blog and leave a comment on every stop.  Winner will be selected on 9-17-12.
Gilby & I have a little something too, we can't do a blog hop "Doggie Walk" without giving away a surprise Doggie Bag! We will pick our winner on 9-17-12 as well!

Hi Everyone!
Have been making several Get Better Soon cards, so I thought I would share another one with you. I'm not going to share who I made this card for or the reason, as she could see it from following my blog. Let's just say it's someone whom I love very much & who has been through a lot this year! It was a great excuse for me to play with this OCL stamp set that love, but have never used before. You have never tried OCL "Our Craft Lounge" stamps you should, they have some of the cutest stamp sets, they stamp really well & the packaging is one of the best. There is a button to the left on my blog that will take you to their site. No, I'm not saying all of this because I'm finally entering one of their challenges, it's truly how I feel!

It's a Big card, don't remember the measurements, but I had to make a special envelope for it.
Inside of card-clever how I used paper to hide the ribbon, huh? :-)

I'm entering it into the following Challenges-
OCL-Anything Goes w/an OCL Stamp
I Heart 2 Stamp-Sketch
Make it Monday-Anything Goes
Marker Pop-Yellow
Twisted Tuesday-Thinking of you

OCL "Sunshine Cheer"
Pattern Paper-Cosmo Cricket "Garden Variety"
Copic Markers
Glitter-MS "Lemon Drop" For the Sun
Sparkly Fluff-OCL "Baby Boy Blue" For the Cloud

As always, Gilby & I love your comments...his tail just wags away when he sees me smile!

Back In The Card Making Saddle Again!

Hi Everyone!
Have kind of had mixed feeling about card making & paper crafting lately. I had this whole thing typed out explaining why, but I thought what was the point? It just brings up more hurt feelings & what's done is done & I need to move on. Let's just say that the 2 people in my family (hubby's side) will now be getting cards that my hubby picks out for them, just as they want. I had decided to sell a bunch of my stamps & stop making cards completely, I have so many hobbies as it is, but that didn't last long though, I'm not going to let this get me down anymore. I enjoy making cards, I just may not make as many as I've made before.
Enough of all that, today I'm sharing a card I made for a friends boyfriend who is extremely lucky to be alive, it is a true miracle that he is still with us. It's going to be a long hard road for him, but, I know he can do it, he has so many people praying for him. I actually witnessed the power of prayer & how amazing God is! 
Instead of a somber get well card, I thought I would make a fun light hearted card that would hopefully make him smile a bit, plus he's a big Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan.

I'm entering it for the following challenges-
Creative Craft Challenges 2 "All About The Boys"
Hooked On Crafts "For Men"
Make It Monday "Anything Goes"
Fetch A Sketch "Sketch"

Digi Stamp-Dude Time Doodle
Sentiment Stamps-MCT 

As always Gilby & I love your comments...his tails just wags away when he sees me smile!

Thanks for stopping by!
