Fall is here....

Hello and happy Monday to you!  
Fall is finally here in New England, I'm enjoying the lovely fall weather.
(ok, ok...  it's a little cool for me, I'm totally of summer girl, the hotter the better!)
So, I decided to share a couple of cards using fall colors.

First up, Rockin' Ruby (SKU# 4210), what a better way to enjoy the weather with her rocking chair?  I did a little bit of paper piecing for her shirt, coloring her with Copic markers, and cut her out and adhered with some foam dots, viola!

And here is the adorable Pearl (SKU# K1703), got to love those polka dots?  I started by creating the background with some gelatos and watercolor card stock, then I added a die cut tree which was distressed with distress ink pads, colored Pearl with Copic markers, and again adhered with foam dots.

I hope you like them and thank by stopping by!

Caution Girlfriends!!!

Happy Monday Ai friends!  Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
For the past few days, we had a few heavy rain storms with severe lighting and thunder.  
is totally perfect for the occasion.

Instead of a card, I decided to make a tag.  I started with inking the tag with distress ink pad, then running though the embossing folder (I also apply ink on the embossing folder to create a letterpress look).   I colored the Girlfriends with copic markers, I did some paper piecing (the umbrella and two of the ladies raincoat).  Then, finished up with stickles and pearl pen.

"Oh my chickens!" challenge!

Hello hello and happy Thursday!!!  

Do you have any chicken(s) stamps?  If yes, you have to come play  along the "Oh my chickens" challenge over at Art Impressions!!!   Honestly, I'm not a chicken person, but... until I see this super cool chick from the Art Impressions' catalog, it's totally hilarious!!  So so funny and I'm loving it!!!

On to my card, I used this awesome chick called Birdie (SKU#U1834) and I also used a sentiment called Blah Blah (SKU# G1664).  And I created the chicken wire background using a stencil and some distress ink pads.
