Not quite, but we are close! Here in sunny NC we get the shortest fall but I make the most of it. Pumpkin spice is everywhere and boots! I took a short break from creating to go to the beach (scrapbook layouts are coming) and to recharge from the stress of the creative team tryout for FSJ. I didn’t make it but I made the first cut and got a very sweet email from Ms. Kim Kesti, creative director that I was “in the top finalist pile and that I would be a strong contender in next year’s audition.” I was so disappointed but I can’t imagine having to choose between all the talent that auditioned. I was asked to join in as a guest on one of the monthly blog hops that FSJ has this year so watch for that. I’m very excited and it will be a ton of exposure for my blog and projects.
I created this sweet little card using an Oatmeal Cookie 8.5″x5.5″ card base with the front embossed using the new Cozy Knit embossing folder from the Holiday Trends catty. The paper strips are cut from The Good Life Prints (5.5′ x 1.5″ and 5″x 1.5″) . On a circle diecut from Whip Cream cardstock, the sentiment is stamped from the uber adorable Thankful Friends stamp set. The gorgeous leaves are die cut from the Pretty Leaves die set which can be purchased with hostess dollars when you host a party of $150 or more!
Today is the LAST day for the awesome 20% off media sale so hurry and order while you can. All orders over $35 will receive in the mail from me, 2 precut card kits with color printed intructions for 2 sweet projects!
Lots and lots of excitement for September is coming! The Bloom Box for September is just amazing! I love floral stamps and cards, but I am so glad that Fun Stampers Journey strives to make monthly card kits that have awesome (usable) themes. This month’s music themed kit is just awesome and BRIGHT!
I am also totally excited and plan to stock up and round out my color collection because inks and cardstock are 20% off for September!!
I hope you have a blessed day!
