Hi Everyone: I truly can't wait for fall. It is my absolute favorite time of year. so I got out some of my dies and started playing. All the dies are sizzix alteration dies. Except for the tag; thats a sizzix/prima die. The tag I got from Michaels dollar section. The tag already had the design on the bottom so I lined it up to use that as well. I'm going to enter it in the Simon says wednesday challenge blog. (http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesday challenge ) Emboss it is the theme this week. I also think I'm going to enter it at The Artistic Stamper blog for their september challenge - Autumn. Thanks for looking!!

Hi Everyone: This month Tim Holtz introduced me to embossing paste. This stuff is fun and easy to use. So for this tag I used the embossing paste with Stampers anonymous stencils (splatters, Burlap, and Dot Fade) cleaned off the stencils right away because the lovely paste dries quickly. once that dried I added probably my favorite distress product, distress stain. (shaded lilac, wild honey, and salty ocean). waited again. and took the Dot fade stencil and placed it over my tag and added ripe persimmon ink. I also used the butterfly from Stampers Anonymous set Fairytale Frenzi. Idea-olgy_ type charm and pen nib. I edged my tag with ripe persimmon. I so look forward to these monthly tags!! Hope you like it.

Hi Everyone: Sometimes My husband and I work on projects together. Usually its a house thing. Ya know repairs and such. The last couple of weeks we've been working on a little desk he found at the thrift shop. When he brought it home it was stained wood, the back and drawers were damaged. So we had fun with it. Here it is. We painted, sanded, and added knobs. Thanks for looking
