Can you believe Halloween is already here!!! Our shopping and gift making season is now upon us!
Do you know what your making? Have you come up with a Holiday card design yet? Keep checking out my blog for ideas.
Today I have Thanksgiving Day Cards. My next post should be Holiday cards.

I cased this card wondering where they had gotten some of the DSP only to realized it is the DSP in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catalog! I just love the fall DSP called Autumn Meadows. Wasn't sure what I could do with it until I found the perfect card to CASE and tweek!

Stock: Autumn Meadows DSP, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Chocolate Chip Cardstock and Really Rust Cardstock

I think this card is my favorite fall card that I have ever made.

Stamping with a Friend

Probably going on two months now, my friend had her baby twins, a boy and girl. She felt sooo out of the stamping loop so I decided to go to her so we could get some stamping done. She stated that she needed some adult birthday cards and wanted to make up some Halloween cards so I quickly whipped up some samples and set an adult play date! I was amazed that her husband was daring enough to take both infants to Walmart. Yup both to a store!!! This gave us plenty of time to get stamping and socializing done :-)!

Here are just some of the cards we made. I hope you like them. Just a note all my card ideas come from It's usually a bunch of cards I seen mixed and matched to make my own. If some are a direct "copy" I apoligize for not remembering where I got them from so I can not give proper credit. Either way, has a ton of creative people!!!
