Heatwave!

We have been in the middle of a heatwave…temperatures have been over 100 degrees all week. We should be around 91 degrees right now so its much hotter than normal. I’m looking forward to things cooling down a little.

I still haven’t organized my pictures from our vacation but here is one that I took at the Idaho/Canada border. We found this beautiful spot. Across the water is Canada.

Today I was working on some Thanksgiving cards with the cute “Gnome for the Holidays” by Photoplay.

I love these gnomes…they have them for Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, July 4th etc. I used the gnome for the holidays paper pad and layered a few of the papers.

I stamped the images of the gnomes and colored them using copic markers. I then cut them out using the coordinating dies.

After adhering all the papers, I then added the images of the gnomes. For the sentiments I used stickers from the 12×12″ paper pack “Gnome for the holidays, Thanksgiving”.

Thats it for today. See you next time!

Stormy Sunday

We’ve had lots of wind and rain today…our temperatures have dropped significantly. Its kind of a relief from the hot sun, as long as it doesn’t linger!

As usual, its been a busy week. My daughter deals with three chronic illnesses and we’ve had Dr’s appointments this week with more coming up.

I didn’t get to spend a lot of time cardmaking this week but I did make a set of July 4th cards.

I went to my local craft store this week and found paper packs by Photoplay called Gnome for the Holidays. They ahve the cutest gnome themed papers for lots of holidays…Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas etc. I used the July 4th pack and created these cards.

I just used the paper in the pack to layer and create the cards. I added twine and enamel dots to some.

I didn’t do any stamping on these. Its all just layered or die cut paper. I really love patterned paper so its fun for me to do a set like these. I can’t wait to use the other sets for Halloween etc.

They also had stamps and dies for these holiday gnomes, so I will be making some cards with those too.

I hope this finds you all well.

See you next time!
