Weekend fun

Yes, I know I'm not posting any new photos of cards or crafty projects, but I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on where I'll be spending my time this weekend.

So my mom is coming from Michigan to join me in the Crop-for-a-Cure this weekend in Reading, PA. I have been wanting to do something like this for ages, so I'm so happy to finally get to do this. So believe me, I have loads to work on, so I will have PLENTY of stuff to show ya'll when I get back.

Secondly, I wanted to remind everyone that World Cardmaking Day is on Saturday. This Oct. 2, what are you all doing for World Cardmaking day? I know where I'll be, Crop-for-a-cure!
Anyways, my digital image site, Frenzified, will be giving away a free digi for World Cardmaking Day, so make sure you check it out on Saturday and get yourself a freebie!
Have a great week all and stay tuned for all of my projects I am making this weekend at Crop-for-A-Cure!

Setting the stage

Sorry I've been MIA recently...I know I know, I say that a lot, but I have been busy busy busy with work and the show I was in. Last night was our final performance, so I finally have some free time to hop in and fill everyone in.
I was in an original musical, written by a local music writer, called "Week Between the Holidays" and it was part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. We had sold out shows for all 3 shows, and the two evening performances were so packed that they sold "standing room" tickets towards the end. lol. Besides the fact that I got sick (stuffy/runny nose and blocked ears, but luckily I never lost my voice) from Thursday all the way through all the shows, they went well. There will be a soundtrack recorded here soon with the original cast (hopefully I'll be well by the time that happens) that anyone can purchase. More information will be at the website soon, www.philadelphiaperformanceproject.com
Anyways, here's a few pictures for the road to hold you over and giggle over. I ended up going through basically my entire card stash of cards I've made to give to the cast and crew, so I think I need to get started on making more cards to replenish it! haha
Here is an article in one of the local papers about the show: springfield sun article

(Have I mentioned I think I look crazy in these pictures...lol...but then again the character is a little crazy)

More pictures are on the website and on that news article, and on the show's facebook.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the change in weather that is coming our way! Hooray! I love fall!
Later all!

Fun in the Fall

So I LOVEEEEEE the fall time. I love when the leaves change color, the temperature becomes a little cooler, and everything about fall makes me so happy. I love pumpkin spice everything (frappicinos, hot chocolate, candle scents, etc.) and everyone prepping for Halloween (which is my most favorite holiday besides Christmas). So here are some of my first fall cards for the season. One is a Thanksgiving card, but I just loved this stamp and the felt leaf I just had to use them together. The other card was my first try at my Friday Night Card Club's Sept. card (which I showed ya'll the post before), but I realized it would take way too long to do 10 of them and it wasn't totally fall (just fall colors). Enjoy!

So do you all love fall like I do? Does any of you have major fall plans, or just the usual school stuff?
Have a great weekend all!

Pumpkin Party

So here is the card I made for my Sept. Card club card. Theme was: Fall/Halloween card that has orange on it, and some sort of food.

(pumpkin party!)

Pumpkin is food for many, so I thought this would work. I decided I wanted to try a very low amount of layers and use some kraft stock for a more autumn look. I also added some faux stitching and white gel pen accents to it, a la. KWerner style. hehe
I think they turned out cute.
Stay tuned for some more fall cards coming your way later this week. I am starting to get in the fall spirit, so I am in love with Fall items. Have you all started working on fall cards or have you skipped right to Christmas cards? Just wondering what everyone is up to, now that most people's kids are off to school (my hubs started his classes today...hehe).
