Tuesday, August 13


Hello Bloggies,

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT:  The hostess code from the last week has now been closed and through Random.org the winner of $50.00 worth of FREE PRODUCT is:


Thanks to all who ordered from me, especially during the Texas Tax Free Weekend.  I will have another HOSTESS CODE for the rest of August and will share that code with you tomorrow.


I am humbled to announce that I have been chosen as one of the GUEST DESIGNERS over at the Late Night Stampers Challenges (LNS).

There are so many amazing stampers out there that I am amazed I was chosen.  I hope I can live up to what they expect from me for these next 3 months.

This week, LNS Challenge is to use SPECIALITY PAPER.  I already submitted one card yesterday when the challenge started, but I immediately had another idea I wanted to share with you.

 I did something similar to this card last fall, but I wanted to update to the most current designer paper available from Stampin' Up!  The paper I used for the pumpkin is WITCHES BREW.  The background paper is a newsprint design, but I cannot remember which paper pack it is from.

 I made a banner with the newsprint paper and with a piece of ALWAYS ARTICHOKE card stock on top.  I stamped several times with versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I tied a 1/8" piece of PUMPKIN PIE RIBBON at the end of the banner.

This paper pieced pumpkin idea came from my quilting that I also love to do.  This type of creating is fun with both paper AND fabric.  Applique is the name of it in quilting.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I sincerely appreciate your support.

Hop on over to LNS to see other cards submitted for this 2 week challenge.  Why don't you submit a card of your own for this challenge?
