Pumpkin Patch and Llama Love

Today we went to the Pumpkin Patch. The kids had a blast. I just want to post a few picture from there.

They also had sheep and two llamas there. I love taking pictures of animals.

And this llama just loved my oldest and was tiring to give her a llama kiss. My oldest really wants to have her own llama

Waky Wednesday

Well today over at SUInk they had a challenge to do a black and white card (whatachadoing Wednesday? Challenge #10) I couldn't refuse it. I don't have there stamps yet I"m hoping they come in tomorrow so instead I used Crafty Secrets Believe and Art sets. I used Core'dinations Hocus Pocus for the back CS and all the red the black is Bazzill. I embossed black wings on the black paper and I think it looks really net. The flowers are Making Memories and the brads are from BoBunny
I love these bird Stamps I have had them for month and finally yesterday I put this little card together the stamps are by Inkadinkado. I colored the birds in with my copic markers. Also I stamped blue limbs on the blue background to give it a bit more eyecandy.
Well I have to get some more scrappening done. Well I need to scrap and not play with so many stamps. I am getting way behind on my pictures. So tomorrow I think I will hide my stamps from myself. Well unless the Storage units, Inks, and more stamps come in. Then I have to play with them.

Fall Is in the air

Fall is in the air. What a beautiful weekend we had. The leaves are turning colors and you can smell the crisp cool fall air. These cute Little Pumpkins are From the Lets Scrap DT blog. There is a totorial over so go on over and Check it out. They are so easy to make.

Here's a fun fall card I did I just stamped leaves using three differant Ranger Distressing inks, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain. I also disstressed the the edges using the Antique Linen. I stamped the thanks and matted it and added ribbion. This card only took about 5 mins.

This is the litte card I had used to tell about a class at the store. So I just took a peice of Croyen White paper and stamped the bats and words on it using Crafty Secrets Halloween Fun. Then I added the little border the match the outter on.

I love this card I had so much fun with it. The center image is from Crafty Secrets Halloween Booklet. I love the little duck int the rabbit costume. I don't know who made it, It was one of rummage sales finds this summer. I colored him in with copic markers and stamped the Happy Halloween did some matting. The patterened paper is from Creative Imaginations. And of cours I had to add a touch of Stickles. Gotta Love Stickles.
This card was onther quick and easy card to make. I just love the golds, browns and oranges of fall colors. Hopefully soon I will get some scrapbooking in. I have been having so much fun doing cards lately. I was almost caught up with my albums and now I"m way behind again.
