Roses & Toile!

Hello everyone! Tomorrow is Halloween and the end of October already, can ya believe it? Although the weather here has been unbelievably cold & windy it feels like January, ughhh....I hate it! It's supposed to be in the 60's this weekend--just in time for my getaway w/ hubby, yay!! I'm lookin' forward to some downtime before the craziness of the holidays begin.

My first card today will have to go down in "Suzanne History"(LOL) as one of my most favorite cards evah'!! This card has my most favoritest colors (red & black) and my favorite prints--toile. I lovee toile so much!! Isn't this new Pink Tilda w/ Rose (from the new Magnolia Pink Collection) just a dollbaby! She is such a wonderful image for so many occasions including thankyous, love, Mother's Day & etc.. You can pick up your own "dollbaby" at Magnolia-licious--quick before they're all sold out! Both the black/cream & red toile dp are from Anna Griffin who makes the most wonderful toile patterns (which I hoard immensely, lol). She's colored with Copics and I added burgundy stickles to the rose to make it really pop. The sentiment is actually a clear sticker from Cloud 9 Designs (Love-Simple Thoughts)--I have bunches of these & they're really wonderful sentiments & quotes for your cards. Do you likee?


My second card is another Sneak Peek from Clear Dollar Stamps (all new releases available on Nov. 1st) called "Snowman Wishes". This set has a ton of images in it and is sooo cute. I used this lil' snowman family to make a "quiet snow scene". The entire image was colored with Twinkling H2O's and is super shimmery IRL. The dp is Memory Box's "Frost" and I love chocolate & blue together (hence my blog header, lol). I think it makes just a sweet, simple holiday card. Make sure & check out my DT sistah's blogs for all their sneakie peekies too (on my sidebar).

Alright I'm off to do lots of things for you fellow readers, lol. Did you notice I went WAY over 50,000 hits yesterday so it looks like blog candy in your future next week & it is BIG!! I will also have pics/directions for my hot cocoa box from this project--I've had lots of you email me & you've all been so patient with me, lol! And make sure to check out my Storage Units, Ink & More DT sistah's blogs (Jen del Muro, Leigh, Debbie) for more sneak peeks (stamps released on Nov. 1st too) today. Until tomorrow...
