It is the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hopand I am excited to have had some time to make a card to play along! I got some watercolour tips from my Aunt this summer and am excited to put them to use with this card. I managed to find some burlap in my stash to make these bright colours have a more fall-ish feel. Happy hopping!

Woo-hoo! I am excited to say I am a guest designer over at Inspired by...All The Little Things this week! My talented Auntie Karen is the hostess and we have been crafting together for a long time! We found some time at our family cabin this summer for crafting and she gave me a few pointers on watercolour painting!
I am so stoked about our inspiration graphic this week:
Here is my take on it :)

I've been working on a special project for our niece's birthday over the past while. I came across this cute idea to do a Q&A book over at Vicki Wizniuk's blog. I wanted to make a matching card, too, so I used the Retro Sketcheslayout and am linking up to the Heart2Heartstamp challenge to celebrate National Stamping Month. Here is the card I created:

Check out this card I made for our niece and nephew today! It will be our niece's first day of kindergarten tomorrow so we got her a cute little story about going to school and some goodies for her first day. I used the Mojo Mondaysketch and used a Close To My Heart school themed stamp set and paper collection to link up to the challenge at Heart2Heart.

It's time to get a head start on my Christmas cards and today's rainy day was the perfect occasion. My aunt gave me the idea to track how many cards I make - hopefully I can get a stash before it gets busy again. This year I will make a variety of different Christmas cards, but I do like to make a few of the same version when I can and with this card I was able to make four.
I am in love with our new colour, Sea Glass, a minty hue, over at Close To My Heart and was excited to use it along with some other new products on this card. I was inspired by the earthy elements in the Verve Diva Inspirationand wanted to also link up with the Christmas in Summer link-up at Merry Monday. The sentiment reads, "It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air - WT Ellis".
Paper - Kraft, Sea Glass cardstock; Rustic Home Fundamentals, Uptown Fundamentals (CTMH);
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black (CTMH); Stamp set - Christmas in the Air (Verve); Dies - Hearts Thin Cuts (CTMH).
