These tags are ones that I started the other night and I love how cute they came out. I will say that the photos do NOTHING for these tags. I used cocoa with red riding hood and the other is sand with red riding hood. I used some glitte on the snowflakes which you can not see in this photo but it just adds the finishing touch to these. The button on the snowflake is one of the riding hood SU buttons.

To kind of go along with the vintage look I thought I would show you this card. Now this is not my sketch, I got it from someone else (can't recall who though) but loved it. I got the Winter Post set that is in the new SU Mini and it is so versatile, vintage and FUN! I thought I would never use the reindeer and look- here he is! I wanted it for the post card saying and the santa postmark, love them both!
Okay- and an update on the 16 yr old thing! OMG- he passed the road test this week and he now has a drivers license! What am I suppose to do now? Should I let him drive? I am freaking out ladies............. he is a good driver, I do not mind driving with him but now, let him leave in the car on his own? Oh, I do not think so- there is so much that can happen to him. I never thougth I would feel like this.......
Oh and I am leaving for San Diego this afternoon and I have nothing planned ahead for you gals so I will not post again until Monday. I wish I had more time to plan- if I do, I will. I have a feeling there is a need for some Halloween Blog Candy- what do you think?

I then took some of the jelly impressions to make a "mark" for the envelope. I had to die cut the impressions with sizzix die b/c none of my punches fit. But I am pleased with the outcomes.

It has a cranberry crisp base and matte, the cardstock is vanilla stamped with the weathered BG stamp for the base and then french script for the top one. I then stamped the Roses in cranberry crisp and the greens in Hunter/moss. I love how this card turned out as it feels vintage/shabby I think. The images are not real crisp which adds to the feel of the card. Plus, no DP on this one and really looks like it could be in some places!
I will try to post again in a bit- I have another step card that I must show you- I LOVE it.

Cardstock 10.5 x 5. Scored at 1.25, 2.5, 4.25, 6, and 8.25.
Fold the card accordian style making sure the smallest fold is folded down as this will be the front of your card.
Start embellishing it!
I hope you give this one a try it truly is fun and lets you be very creative in decorating the steps. If you make one, please leave a link and I will stop over and take a lookie! Have a great day!

So- on to some fun stuff! I pulled out my Magnolia's since I had not used them in a bit and worked on this little sweetie!
This is birthday Tilda and she has a yummy litte cake for you for your Birthday Celebrations (SU). I used a sketch on this one, was lacking some creative MOJO I guess so took it from Mojo Challenge she has some FAB sketches for you to use! I colored her with my copic markers and matted on SU celery cardstock. I then took the polka do pink paper from my DCWV nursery paper and used my hearts border punch. I had not used this in some time and wouldnt you know it broke half way through! (Ugh..... I fix and will now call Fiskars) . The strip is celery and the main paper is DCWV another nursery paper from that pack. I added a couple of prima and good to go. Happy Birthday to someone!
Question for today: you make all these cards so what do you do with them (if they are not for a design team) ?
Mine go in a box to use for future needs, some I package and give away for birthday gifts, christmas, prizes to my staff at work.
I will be back later this week with some fun CB folder projects and a great site that I found. Also check out my blog candy list- I have been trying to keep it up to date- Bunny Zoe has some new HH goodies! Talk to ya later!

Now I will share with you a challenge that I am participating in since you hung around and heard our sad story
Ha ha............ that little turkey is a wild animal right? I was looking at some challenges and the Dutch Dare one had to be a wild animal. Well I have others but I was giggling when I looked at this one because it will throw you off I think. How many wild animals eat dinner at the table with ya! This is a precious moment stamp, they are retired and not for sale anymore but I had to pull this one out as we come into fall and Thanksgiving! I used some Debbie Mum paper that I got at Jo's the other day, real rust and mustard SU cardstock to matte them. I colored them with my copics and love the results. It is soft and yet vibrant. I am also submitting this card for a sketch challenge as well. I thought it was a nice sketch and will use it again.
