Fall/Winter Arrives in TX

Fall (or maybe winter) officially arrived in Texas today. After temps around 90 yesterday, we woke to rain, wind and temps that barely made it to the high 50s today! It was a shock and feels colder than it actually is, but is a very welcome change from the heat and humidity.

Blogger has had some "hiccups" lately and I haven't been able to upload any photos for several days. It's finally working again, so here are a few quick Halloween cards I made last week. The first two use pumpkin face squares cut from a piece of Heidi Grace patterned cardstock. I centered a square cut from a sheet of Tacky Tape over the images and sprinkled with ultrafine iridescent glitter. The scan doesn't pick this up very well. All the stamps used on these cards are dollar stamps from Michael's. There were some really cute ones this year!

And here are a few Christmas cards I'm sending to a friend for a breast cancer fundraiser.

Ornament stamp by My Sentiments Exactly and gold embossed on white.

Stamp by Denami Designs, gold embossed on dark green cardstock. The snow is Liquid Applique which puffs up when heated. Also added gold Stickles for stars and bottom edge.

Trees are a cheap foam cube stamp. Edge sponged with red ink. Dove is an eyelet I got at a convention a long time ago.
