Goodness, seems like I'm always posting in a hurry.
Remind me - exactly how did I do this before retirement???
Well, folks, Happy Wednesday!
It's overcast and a bit cool here, but not raining yet, which is a very good thing, as our fields are full of cut hay.
We are praying for a few hours of dry around here.
I have to make a road trip for DH, so this will be another short post.
This little fall treat features one of the images from the Clear Dollar Stamps September release.
Rather than make a card, I decided to make a 'tag' for a caramel apple. (Mmmmm....caramel apples...).
I printed the image, used an exacto blade to trim the leaf and stem, and carefully folded the CS.
Once I had it how I wanted it, I just trimmed it up and rounded the corners.
Turned out pretty cute!
If I make them again, I will shorten the sides and do a little sponging or something on them -
they look like lots of white space!
I think teachers might be tickled to receive something like this.
Especially with one of those really fabulous high end candy apples!
All coloring is with Copic markers, image from Clear Dollar Stamps, apple from Wal-Mart.

Next up is a gift card holder that I made using a tutorial from Grace Nywening, that I found here.
Oh. My. Goodness.
What a fun project this was, and Grace's tut was SO easy to follow!
She has such a wonderful blog, full of yummy goodness - you really should check it out!
I chose to use some of my new stamps from C.C. Designs on this card, and an older C.C. Designs sentiment from All That Scraps.
All coloring done with Copics. CS is Bazzill Basics, DP is Prima Reflections. Stamps and Sunflower Die are from All That Scraps. Border Punch is Martha Stewart (punched border and cut in half lengthwise).
Meet Hansel and Lulu. Aren't they just the ca-utest little people?
They were so much fun to color, although when I was uploading and resizing the photos for this blog post, I realized that I quit before doing ANYthing around them...you know, the important things like sky, grass, shadowing....sigh. I'm so hopeless! I'll have to be sure that this card goes to a non-artisty type that won't notice anything but the gift card, right? lol...
Well, that's all I have for you today. I wish you a day full of happiness and blessings!
I'm off to parts unknown with water samples!!!
Food for thought:
It it were not for 'last minute', I'd never get anything done!
