A little bit of.....

scrappy goodness today.

Since Sweet Pea Scraps stopped making new kits, I haven't been creating as much lately. It's a good thing really, as I'm now working again since school started, and I have less time to be creative anyways. But, as promised a few posts ago, I'll share what I have been doing!

I bought this stamp at my LSS a few weeks ago, but since we don't really make a big deal out of Hallowe'en in our house, I thought I'd experiment and try to make a fall tree! So, I pulled out my eyeshadow foam brushes (yep the cheap ones from the dollar store. I use them for getting into small spaces that my inks won't reach) and tried my hand at blending 4 different colours. I liked the first one I tried on a scrap piece of paper, so I created these three :

a little "plaque" with a really great quote for fall :

a fall "Joy" card

and a little thank - you card.

Also, I made this page for a new mom in my congregation. It's meant to be a shower gift, so I framed it, and she can add her favorite picture of her little guy. I used sketch #14 from 52 Weeks...52 Sketches for it.

Otherwise, things here never slow down; really it's starting to become normal! I'm more than halfway through Echo in the Bone, and I'm hoping there will be a #8 in the series!!! It's very good.

That's it for now - have a great day!
