Fall Harvest



Welcome to a Fall Blog Hop!  A number of Angel Company demonstrators have collaborated to bring you many delightful cards for your viewing pleasure!



This card uses the Fall Harvest set!  The greeting is from Booko Blessings! The paper and cardstock is from our Penelope Collection.  And, I used our new copics (Set A) to color the image.  How do you like the polka dot dress that I gave the little girl?  I'm having lots of fun learning how to use the Copics!



Here are the other participants in the blog hop!  Enjoy! 



Be sure to check out my Blog Candy too!!

Perky Penguins



Wow!! Three posts in one day - that's a record for me!!   My first set of Copics arrived today and, of course, I just had to break them out and play a bit.



I made a set of notecards with the Perky Penguins stamp set.  The coloring is my first attempt at using the Copics.  And the trim on the hat sparkles after using the Stardust Glitter Pen!



I absolutely love these things called Copics!  They are so easy to work with and the results were fantastic.  Now I have to rearrange the budget to get some more sets!

Joy for Juilette





The Vintage Plum Embossing Powder goes so well with our Juliette Paper and Juliette Cardstock Collections! 



This card is super easy to make.  Start with cardstock and add a layer of coordinating designer paper.  Emboss the Ornamental Joy stamp with the Plum Embossing Powder and add a couple more layers.  Add the flower, brad, and scrappers floss and you are done!



The ladies in this Christmas Workshop were thrilled with this card!

Today's Abundance

-The sun is peeking out - hopefully it will stay!

-Cranberry Butter

-Fabric - gotta go play with the bargains I found yesterday

-Today - isn't everyday an abundance!

Blog Candy!



I've been busy, busy, busy!!  In early October I was at a quilt retreat for 5 days.  It was "perfect" weather for sewing as it rained just about the entire time we were there!.  One day it was raining sideways - the wind was that strong!



Then I have also been prepping for Craft Sales.  My first two are done - one a great success and the other so, so! Now I have another half dozen or so to do for the remainder of the year!  It certainly is Craft Sale and Craft Boutique Season!



Well, onto the Blog Candy!  As we head towards Thanksgiving I find it is always a season to be extra grateful and extra thankful for what we have.  So, for this giveaway, simply add a quote and the author about gratitude, abundance, blessings, and thankfulness as your comment!!  I will pick my favorite and that will be the winner.



The blog candy includes:

  -Lap of Luxury Designer Paper Pack from The Angel Company - 8x8

  -2 Rolls of Double Stick Tape from the 3M company

  -2 bags of brads

  -Purple Scrappers Floss - my favorite embellishment

  -3 Stamps from The Angel Company - a birthday set, a New Years set, and a Frog Set



Please post by October 30 and I will announce the winner November 1!



Thanks   rita
