Seasons of Change ~

stamps: Season of change  -  Dies: Season of Change leaf die
Fall is my next favourite time of year!! My most favourite is whatever day I happen by except the day my washer decides to quit spinning. But I cannot complain. Each day is a gift. 

I love this set called Seasons of Change, you can purchase the matching dies here. While change might be difficult for some of us, it can also be a character building time depending how we approach and receive those changes. In the process, let us allow the colours of HIS love, life and heart shine through us. 

I anticipate the colours soon to come upon us!

Quick Quotes Canvas ~

12x12 Family Canvas Kit
Love these easy to put together kits from Quick Quotes!!! I picked these up while working at the CK Convention in Lancaster last month and I am hooked on these that I signed up for the Club. They make great gifts and inspire your creativity to do more. I made three different projects this past week. 
Be on the lookout for more in the near future. Have a great rest of today!

Back to School ~

stamps: together silhouettes, holiday baubles

Good morning Everyone! Can you believe we are thinking of Back to School shopping, block scheduling, extra curricular activities. My Card features Together Silhouettes set by dkDesigns and added the bell from holiday baubles. Love how it turned out!

While some of you are thinking back to School, I am officially finished with that phase of my life as my home schooled senior graduated in June! Yay! Here's a picture of our Graduate.

Sweet'nSassy August Release Bloghop ~

Can it be August already? We are thinking of Crisp Fall days and children still in the novelty of new classrooms, new teachers and homework is fun. Dream on right? Actually, we are still lingering in summer vacation mode but at SNSS we are ready to show you what Fall has in store for your card creations! All stamps released will be available for your immediate purchase over at Sweet'nSassy store.

If you came from Cathy McCauley's blog (pssst, isn't she amazingly talented??) you are on the right track.
stamps: Tree Background, Autumn Collage
 My first card showcases the Tree Background! Can we say LOVE?? I do. I embossed it in black and added fall colours using a sponge until I achieved the look I wanted. I couldn't wait to cut out this "new for me" fence die to place kind of meandering in front of the tree. Then, I cut out the quote using one of the decorative dies. Love it.
stamp: Autumn Collage
For this card, I embossed directly on Kraft CS in white and coloured in the image using Gamsol and coloured pencils. The soft colours are perfect for this image. I cut out the second embossed panel and cut it down to fit the first and matched it to the design. I made the card a little smaller to make room for the circle top which includes a quote. And now, onto some details...

Be sure to leave a comment on each blog! A random commenter will win two stamp sets of their choice from one of the following blogs listed, also randomly chosen. You must comment by 8:00PM EST today.
