Mum's Away!

Happy Saturday my friends! My chitter chatter will be at a minimum (do I hear you sighing with relief, lol) since it's late on Friday night as I type this and I'm ready for bed! :) I had date night with hubby tonight while the kids were off with their friends which was a nice break for us both. I also had a glass of wine which has been at least 2 months since I've had one and it's making me very drowsy, lol! I'll be doing some work tomorrow but we hope to spend most of the day chilling on our 98% completed patio, lol and I want to grill out some!  On Sunday we're headed to DC for the Washington Nationals game (baseball for those who don't know, lol)--just the four of us so it will be fun and I'm sure we'll suck down some hotdogs and other junk (cotton candy for meeeeee), lol!

So anywho I don't want to type up some mumbo jumbo here tonight that won't make sense, lol---but I'll be back on Monday with a new post, some chatter and the winner of the last blog candy (Bats n Brooms)! Have a fabulous weekend and Enjoy it!

Mum's Away!!

I'm so lucky cuz' today I get to preview a DUAL MINI RELEASE from SCACD!  That's right two mini releases--one from Elisabeth Bell and one from Victoria Case for SCACD!  Both of these mini sets will be released on Sept. 30th so mark your calendars!  Right now you can enter for some AWESOME Blog Candy at the store blog HERE!  I'm using a cute NEW Elisabeth Bell image called "Flowers For Mom" from the Mini Sampler #1 Edition!

I really love this image called "Flowers for Mom" from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD because I can envision it used for many seasons.  I made my flowers more fall-like but you could create early spring flowers and colors as well!  So just by changing up the colors of the papers and images you can get multiple uses out of this image (and isn't she a cutie)!  I used my Bow Easy to create a double bow and then my Marianne Designs leaf die for the scrolls and fun leaves popping out at the top!  A few rhinestones in the corner finish it off!

I used lots of fun fall colors to match my papers (scrap ??) including YR23,Y21,YR20/E18,E15,E11/BG23,BG10!  The flower pot on the left got a mixture of Flower Soft colors to create a more mum like flower and then in the centers of those gold daisies are tiny gold rhinestones.  I glittered up her headband, pant cuffs and top of her sweater for some more fun bling!

Hope you enjoyed this fall card and make sure to stop by the store blog HERE to enter for that awesome blog candy!!  Have a wonderful weekend!
