Happy Fallish Sunday! So the rain has passed and the sun is finally peeking thru. I think we got over 3 inches of rain yesterday--we definitely needed it, but I can do w/o the stormy weather that came along with it. I guess I'm starting to move out of my summer mood and fall (ha, ha) into autumn!! But I will miss the warm weather--winter and me do not get along!!

I have to tell you one of my dirty little secrets...well it's not really dirty and not really a secret to those who know me well!! I love New Kids on the Block (am I aging myself, hee hee) and have since I was a teen. I was one of those crazy, screaming girls (like today's Jonas Bros. fans...aka my daughter) who had posters all over my walls and went to every concert. My mom was and is the best ever--she waited in many long lines at ungodly hours in the morning to help get me good tix to their concerts and hauled me and my friends around to see them and follow their tour bus around (were we crazy or what). And guess who's going to see their reunion tour next month...ME and my MOM--yippeee (and this time I bought the tix)! I can't wait, alas we'll all be screaming women and moms now, lol!!! BTW, their new album is FANTASTIC--love it and listened to it all day yesterday while I was stamping. It got my mojo flowing! And my Jonas Brother loving daughter actually admitted she liked their new songs--aha, a future convert---ROFL!!!! BTW, this is not my "other" secret--that will be revealed tomorrow.

Ok, onto my cards as I've blabbed enuff about my obssessions (did I mention I'm also addicted to Cherry Coke, oh well that's a whole 'nother post, hee hee). Being in a fallish mood both of my cards today reflect that in case ya didn't notice--oh my, someone slap me cuz' I'm slaphappy!!

The first card uses a new Magnolia stamp that I got and I believe she's called "Tilda in Falling Leaves". If you are interested in buying any of these stamps you can contact Diana Crick at for ordering information. Her new webshop, Magnolia-licious will be ready to go in just a few days--how exciting is that!! I used some new dp from Memory Box called "Twiggy". I couldn't help but to paper piece her sweater w/ some of the dp. I colored her w/ Copics and used my nesties to cut out the circle and scallop circle frames. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and I used my fall leaf punch to punch out leaves and attach them around the card. A few stickles here and there and some raffia tied around completes the fall scene. Do you like?

The second card is using one of the new Whiff of Joy stamps called "Willow with Cookies"---isn't she just the prettiest lil chef? I never look this good when baking--ha ha! This yummo-licious dp is from a new company called Black Market (not BM you party people & you know who I'm talkin' about, lol). This particular pack is called "rhythm" and I lovee it. Of course I got all of them cuz' I'm a paper addict, and ha ha that's the store I got it from :) You can get it from The Paper Addict or Gina K--it comes in 6x6 packs so make sure and check it out! She's colored w/ Copics of course and the rest of the card is just lots of layering. I used flowers from Prima and the ribbon and cs are from PTI. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps "Feeling Groovy" set--I lovee this set so much!!

Alrighty, enough outta me--go enjoy your day doing whatever it is that pleases ya! I have errands to run and get done.

Until tomorrow...
