Moose You So Much

 Staying cozy with this photo from Inspired By Challenge.  I love all the rustic outdoor images.

Using this moose with a huge set of antlers and a winter background scene, an oval was stamped and die cut.  Punched snowflakes and fussy cut hearts were added.

Hope you are having a cozy and creative day.

Fall Coffee

Today I am inspied by the above photo, crispness in the air and all the leaves that have fallen on my deck.

The background is paints on paper.  White distress spray was used after all the paint had dried.  The coffee cup is a paper clip.

Have a warm and cozy day!

Queen Bee

The bees are buzzing around here as the apples are sweet and ripe.  It is also getting cooler and the bees are looking for a warm place.  So, bringing on the bees, the queen bee has made her entrance today on a card and matching envelope!

Using an embossing folder, a piece for the card and the envelope was embossed in a flower folder. This is a fun way to decorate an envelope and fun to send through the mail.

To add a little bling, white sequins were added to the flower centers and the queen bee's crown has thress small gems.

Have an amazing day and bee creative!

Big Blooms

Working on some global art swaps and Altnew has the Majestic Bloom set that is gorgeous.  I thought it would make a great fall post card and it fits the theme of beautiful blooms!

The global art swap is an international exchange of post cards.  You sign up and are given three names to send your projects to.  It is fun seeing the creativity and receiving mail from all over the world.

Have a creative day!

Fresh Baked

In the kitchen today with a great inspiration photo.  I just finished a making a shadow box with vintage kitchen gadgets so this photo really inspired me!  My BFF and I get together at the holidays and mass produce cookies for holiday trays.  Last year we made a tray for the nursing home activities department bake sale.  It was raffled off and a gentleman whos wife was in the nursing home won the tray.  He was so excited because he had homemade cookies!  All the procedes for the raffle went to funding the activities department activities for the residents. This is the stuff that blesses your heart!

Using stamps and die cuts they were placed in the heart.  I think everything is here but the kitchen sink!!  The rolling pin was popped up.

Have a great day and bake away!

Life Is Better With Friends

Here is a shout out to all friends, you make life better!  The other thing that makes life better is fall colors and the cooler weather!

Using purple, orange and yellow with splatters of black the background was created with distress ink.  Two stencils were used to get the circles in the upper corner and the purple squares in the lower corner.  The sentiment was stamped and the boy was stamped and colored.

One of the best things you can be is a friend!

Hey, Chick

This cheerful duck/chick image is one of my favorite stamps!  I just think all the different face expressions and animal sizes are neat!

The stamp is paired with some bright and bold patterned paper.

Hey, chick, hope you have a great day!
