Now for this card, this paper was sent to me so I do not know whose it is, I mounted it on barely banana and used Real Red. I actually sold a couple of these already, I think that they are so innocent and with the scriptures work well for many occasions. I used my copics again for coloring it and am thrilled with the outcomes.
I promise- no precious moment this next time and I hope you all have a FAB week! Check back Wednesday and I will do what I can to post something different and exciting.
Check out Angel's blog candy too! Also the Blog Candy Roll call on my right sidebar!

We are off to Cedar Point tomorrow, taking the boys and each of them is bringing a friend. We are going to stay the night and do the Hallo-weekend gig- staying at the park for the "spooky night" rides until midnight! I will try and post later this weekend or Monday at the latest. Thanks to all of you for your wonderful comments.
Oh and check out Tara's blog candy too!

This is the fall card we made using autumn harvest. We stamped the image in stazon on water paper and then colored with pumpkin ink and marker. I like to get them comfortable using different techniques and tools and so we used the aquapainter. I love the look of watercoloring and it truly is easy. We used pumpkin pie, mustard and olive with some chocolate in there... .. uh, that pretty much describes the BESTEST fall combination doesn't it?
So- the next card we did because I am not a huge halloween kind of gal- oh yes there are you ladies out there that live for it and I will admit that many of those cards you all make tempt me so but physically it is not a day we celebrate or do anything. When my kids were littel I would dress em up and 5 houses later they were like, "Ok, can we go home now?" HUH? I spent all this time getting you ready, I should think not! LOL! I am not ready for Christmas so we went with spring (or end of summer blast I like to think)
This is on baha breeze which is a new stampin up color and I love it, not really a fall color but it sure is pretty. We used olive, pretty in pink, ruby red and baha breeze ink as well. It was a fun card to make- imagine 6 ladies all trying to punch out the circles, being sure they got the right size and then stamping the exact images so they could make this card. Tee hee......... I hope they didn't get too frustrated, I think not because they seemed to like the card.
I hope you enjoy the cards- I will try to post again tomorrow but it is going to be hectic. I leave for CA on Monday, stop over in Phoenix on my way home Thursday night. Then Saturday off to Cedar Point- does that sound like a full week? I will do my best though. Thanks for stopping in and don't forget me, I will be back!

Next I have to show you, back in August I think it was (was it even earlier than that?) that I went and spent the day with Claudia? Well I have pics of us and I totally forgot to post them- so here goes (hope she doesn't get mad at me.... tee hee hee...... she shouldn't her hubby took the photo for heaven sake! Ha!!!) So this is Claudia and I.
Can you tell we were having so much fun? I think that this might have been after the kids were in bed and we were laughing and Paul came down to see what was going on. I truly enjoyed my day and look forward to getting together with her again sometime (hope she feels the same way!)
Hope you all have a fabulous rest of your weekend!

So anyways- a little about the vacation to Nuevo Vallarta- it was a great flight both ways, the weather was fabulous, had a few rain showers (it is their rainy season) in the evenings but it never once interrupted more than the evening uno game on the patio, which we took inside. It was so beautiful to wake to the ocean, the sunshine and the sound of the water. I just love it! I will miss it greatly and we will begin our next planning endeavor next week. So- I leave you with this picture that my son took. He spent a great deal of evenings taking pictures of the sunsets and the beach and I thought this one was pretty awesome.
I am going to get to work so I have some goodies to show you this week AND I really must put out some candy soon- don't you think?
