Colorful Splendor!


Have you started to see the change? It always starts with a row of trees down our main street to our home.

The leaves seem to seep in the imaginary colors of fall through the tips of their veins and soak it all in. I love fall, it's a quiet season as far as nature goes for me. Or maybe I just notice it more, but I do love trees and color so I tune in more clearly for this season.

It's a treat when I have a stamp that lets me recreate the scene I see down my street and that's what my card is all about today!

Christmas Greetings In Time for a DIY Holiday Card


It's been a week of Christmas Greeting with Stampendous and I get to share this simple and inspirational card.

I love this handwritten message with the iconic star graphic. It could be in a very traditional way, but I decided to change it up and use some of the modern colors we've been seeing so often at Christmastime.

Read to the end of the post for supplies and instructions. I think it would very easy to put a few dozens together in no time in an array of colors!
