Ready...Set...Go for Christmas Episode 2. Stamped Wreath Card

Hi everyone,
Here is this week's episode of Ready..Set..Go for Christmas.  This week we are making a stamped card using unconventional stamps to create a wreath.  These cards are super simple and look terrific.  I made two of them in just over 10 minutes. 6 of these made and 4 from last week.  That means I am up to 10 cards done.  Just a FEW more to go.  Check out the latest cards and video

The tree in the background (unfinnished) is made from folding a magazine.  This is from a Martha Stewart craft from last year.  YouTube videos are available to show the process.

Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment...............I love comments
See you nice

Celebrate Fall

Hello Tuesday folks.
Today it's about time to celebrate fall.  In Florida we love to celebrate fall cause that means we made it through another summer.  Actually you really wouldn't know it yet as the temperature is still in the high 80s and low 90s.  HUMID.  But if the calendar is almost at October then cooler, less humid weather is not too far away.  While all you folks up north are putting your gardens to sleep, we are getting ready to plant tomatoes and peppers.  There are some great things about this climate. 
Anyway, today's card is my celebration of fall.  I will be entering this is a couple of challenges
Celebrate the Occaision.........use ribbon
Fantabulous Cricut...............Use leaves
I am please with the way this came out.  What do you think?

Here is the video with measurements

Don't forget to check back Thursday for episode 2 of Ready Set Go for Charismas
That's all for now. See you nice

Thank you card

Hi everyone.
Just a short post today to show you a thank you card that I will enter in Emma's throwback Thursday Challenge.  Black, Green, Orange and Purple. Card must also be cricutless.  Those colors lend themselves obviously to Halloween, but I don't need many Halloween cards.  I still have some left from last year's stash.  On the other hand Thank you cards are always in demand.  This beautiful purple paper is a scrap from DCWF Colorful Life.  The rest is recollections or stash.
Hope you like it.

See you tomorrow with another video.  (Battery is charging) nice.
