Thankful!

I have to admit my inspiration for fall cards this year is a little lacking…  where do you all find your inspiration? I usually look on Pinterest or YouTube and of course all the lovely paper crafting challenges out there!

Transition Time

Good morning Crafty Friends!

I’m in my transition phase right now of summer cards and colors to fall cards and colors. So the next few weeks will probably be a hodge pudge of all kinds of different themes. I hope you won’t mind.

Today I have a clean and simple Happy Birthday card. I’m pretty happy with how it came out. I wish the washi tape was straighter but other then that I’m happy with it!

You make my Tail Wag

So on Tuesday, I shared the newest member of Sam’s Crafty Castle with you. My family decided we wanted to give Brooklynn’s Foster parents a little thank you card for taking care of her before we could. Her foster mom also happens to be my 7th-grade science teacher and lives in our neighborhood! So my parents are getting them a gift card and asked me to make a card for them. So I used the excuse to buy a few pet themed items I had been looking at and put together this card. It was also my first adventrue with Deco Foil Transfer Gel! It worked really well. I still need a little more practice with putting on the gel evenely with a stencil though.
