some of saturdays cards

made from scraps, the green baubles are an johnny Appleseed gift from Sandy (Mopar35) Thanks so much! :) the center diecut is embossed and up on pop dots. added some orange texture bazzill under it and cut it out by hand along the edges.
thought this would make a fabulous fall birthday card. its 5 X 7 in real life.
that printed paper is from a co called gcd studios and the paper line is de doo blossoms from the whoop de doo collection. (no i didn't remember i snagged the scrap with the words and brought it in the house ) ;)
When Chicks read horror books... Sentiments from Rubber Romance, the printed paper i think was a rak but i don't remember now who gave it to me anymore (sorry) the chicks are stamped on neenah solar white and colored with prisma pencils.
This one i was paying attention to the "level" meter on the camera.. My thoughts about that is i will just use my eye from now on the level thing really makes for some odd shots... the background is an rubbernecker one ( i think ) that came to me via the PIF threads from Leibetty ( Thanks LA!!) its stamped with purely pomegranate ink on pink cardstock the mat around the gals is that cs then the pink stripe pp is an old old old ctmh one. ( don't ask me its name ) vintage lace, i thought the curves went well with the circles and ovals.
told my self you need some more "simple" cards... so this was actually the first one i made, and it is fairly simple the pp is from deja views (homespun paisley) and its A6 in real life.
this pp is from bo bunny and is called unforgettable kiss, this is both of the sides of it. added some yellow stickles to the pp and the diecut.
Another bo bunny pp alissa adorable. it also has some stickles but this is the "distressed milled lavender" bought it for the color, but the distressed stickles have a larger hole on the squeeze bottle so it comes out in bloops.
also did 10 leaf cards (very simple) didnt shoot them, stuck 6 of them into a fall tin for the raffle prize drawing for the craft booth i will do next month. may have jinxed myself with that decision... found it almost impossible to think about stamping or even making cards after i plunked down the money for the table, but the who gives a carp attitude has kicked back in and i think for the most part it will be OK in the end, i wish it was over with and i probably will not renew the contract for doing it next year. I am totally dreading sitting there for 2 days. and on the other hand i am curious to see how people react to my cards in real life.

Great cards Stacy! I find that challenges(sketch ones are my fav's) give me a place to start and keep me motivated. You'll do fine at the craft show! :) Maybe take some images to color while you sit there?? It will help pass the time and people can see you at work!
