I love getting cards in the mail just as much as I enjoy sending them! This one came last week and I love the colors, style and message! It is from one of my uplines – Cherie Manderscheid. Look closely and you can see the texture on the top portion of the card. The stamp set used is Just Believe – it has the round embellishment and the greeting in it.
Register for my card class this week and you will make this one! Yep – you'll love it just as much as I do. . . and the best thing is – you can change the colors very easily to make it any color you want it to be!
See you Thursday!

From my hostess club this week – now don't you wish you were there? I do too!
I love the colors on this card – they just POP right off the page! There is no big trick to the fold. . . . just take the front portion of the card and fold it to the left to meet up with the center fold of the card.
This card layout really showcases the gorgeous Autumn Spice specialty designer series paper. The colors really do pop out against the Early Espresso background. The solid color for the inside of the card is More Mustard.
Check out the leaf – used the Leaves #2 die and then sent it through the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder ( p 214). To help the leaf standout just a bit more, I wheeled the paisley prints wheel in more mustard on the bottom edge of the more mustard layer. Notice the new Decorative Label punch used to outline to greeting. Pretty darm cool!

Here is the fall banner that adorns my fireplace in my stampin' space. Don't you love it? We are at peak color season right now at my area in Minnesota and the colors are absolutely stunning! Here is a close up of one of the pennants.
Of course I used my Big Shot to create all of the pieces. Here are some details;
- pennant die 113483 (p208). Wait till you see what I do with this die closer to Christmas! :) The fabric is from WM
- scallop squares duo die 120903 (Holiday Mini Catalog p 17) – I used the larger of the 2 scallop squares
- Serif Essentials Alphabet 113464 (p 207) – I know this die set is an investment. Think about the multiple applications that it can be used for – scrapbooking, home decor, fabric, cards, etc – that's where you will see the value
- Leaves were cut form felt or fleece and are from the leaves #2 die 113459 (p 213)
I am excited to get out and enjoy the fall colors this weekend – Monday is 6 weeks post surgery for me so, I am thinking I can at least start walking a bit more! I love the fall and already have some great pics. Jim and I took the grandkids to the pumpkin patch this week – that is always a ton of fun!
Check out my fall line up of classes! I think this is the BEST line up of holiday classes ever!!!!! Yep – all for you. Lovin' what I do. My calendar is updated but, you will see some updates posted here to highlight the fabulous line-up!

I had such a great time at my downline meeting last Saturday! My friend Lisa and I do it together and we were so priviledged to have Pam Morgan from Stampin' Up! come and join us. . . such a treat! We had great demos, awesome ideas, fun, challenges, make-n-takes and more fun!
What a great company we work for! It really doesn't feel like work when you have some many wonderful friends and have so much fun doing it!
