These cute little pumpkin faces are the negatives of pumpkins cut on my Cricut. Check out the next picture for the matching pumpkins.

I found it colored it in with chalk and decided to enhance it with Smooch inks. Super old products. But it did the trick.
I'm entering this card into Pattie's Creation Design Challenge: Autumn/Fall
Thanks for looking.

I made my card today using die cuts from a Sizzix set that is full of birds. The patterned papers I used were by K and Co., Pepertrey Ink, and Tim Holtz. The background paper is by Studio Calico. The sentiment stamp was a set I bought off of eBay. I've been on a shopping spree the last month. I'm not as familiar with my new products. Anyway, the bow is a sticker by Mrs. Grossman. I punched the center of the wreath out with a Marvy circle punch.

Here is the last October calendar page for year one of Wednesday calendar layouts. This one was from my Brother's 2021 calendar. The corners are from Recollections. I made the title with my Cricut. The epoxy sticker at the bottom is by Creative Imaginations. The second picture in this post shows the layout before the sticker and I'm half and half on it. Adding the sticker doesn't give your eyes a place to rest. But happily, it decreases the number of stickers in that package of stickers. On that sticker sheet, there's one with a cat that is ok to use on kids' cards but the last two stickers in the package are scary to me. Maybe they aren't scary. I will try to post a picture.
Organizing pictures is a BIG sigh followed by irritation followed by why can't I get someone to help me. I would pay them the going rate. Shoot, McDonald's is starting at $15. Starting!
I made a list in outline form and #2 is I need a minion. Then
2a.) Get on my PC and delete duplicates. With that...I want the right pictures to go into folders that they are labeled to go into.
2b.) Clean up my blog, that one is harder than it sounds. Like 2a I want it to be done my way. Heck, once we established what I want, they could do it from home.
2c.) Use the label maker for all of my stamp sets. However,
2d.) I'm thinking of taking old stamps off the wood. But so many things come with that and maybe I need to make that decision before 2c.
2f.) 3 Inch disks project. I have a box of them that is how we saved things in the '90s. We had a camera that didn't have film, it had one of those disks. I have the converter to plug into my computer and move any worthy pictures onto my computer. The most important pictures I'm looking for are of my husband's back. Skin cancer comparison photos.
And the last thing that I've thought of that I need a minion for is...
2g.) Check and do the maintenance on my Copic markers. Though I love to play with them, they are not getting the love they deserve and it's resulting in the markers going dry and the nibs destroyed.
I have two people that would be perfect for the job but have both said not now. I'm going to hang onto that string of hope that they will say, I can help you with one of your tasks.
Until then, I have a list typed up on my blog ready to go.
Do you have anything you wish someone would do for you? Maybe I forgot it and need to add a 2h.)
Thanks for looking.

I know it's not Floral Friday but I made this card specifically for the challenge at
I would not have reached for my lace if it wasn't for the bingo challenge.
The tiny bow is wrapped around the lace to bunch it up.
The flower stamp is by Clearly Besotted. Center die cuts are by Spellbinders.
Thanks for looking.

Here is another Peace card.
These cards were made as thank you cards for the parents that helped/contributed to the homecoming float. Long story short, Hubby and other friend teachers are advisors for the class of 2025. The theme this year was decades. The Senior class chose the 1980's. The Juniors were 2000's. The Sophomores were 1990's and the Freshman were 1970's hence the funky cards.
So, I had a few extra fabric circles and adhered them to the sunglasses die cut.
They found these glasses on the table and in an effort to find out who they belonged to, they took a selfie wearing the glasses and sent it to the family GroupMe app. LOL.
Thanks for looking.

Today’s card was made using inspiration from my Snow White card. I had just been coloring in the images when I found all of the pieces of this card. The pieces were in my room just waiting for each other to come together as one. Ta-Da!

Isn't this the cutest phone stamp? Perfect for teens.
