In honor of the first day of fall, I thought it only appropriate to post a card from the best thing about fall....HALLOWEEN! This is totally my favorite time of year & I've already started thinking about putting up my Halloween decorations this coming weekend--I can't wait!
I love both of the trees in this card-speaking of trees, have you picked up the new tree clear sets over at the A Muse website? What are you waiting for.....ADORABLE!!!

We have had a consistent 3 weeks of sun here in Seattle.....which followed what seemed 5 weeks of grey & rainy weather. Summer showed up late this year. :)
This card reminds me heading to the Pike Place Market in the summer with all the GORGEOUS flower stalls...you can NOT be in a bad mood after looking at all the bouquets & loose flowers-to die for.

Here is a card for my sweet friend Sharon (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!) I never knew how much I would use this sentiment...I honestly use it ALL. THE. TIME. :) There are just so many cute bird images out that it always seems to make it's way with them. I'm pretty happy with this card, & since I am always in need of birthday cards, I might make a few more of these in various color schemes to have on hand. Plan ahead Melissa, plan ahead. :)
Have a great day!

for HALLOWEEN!!! Here is a quick & simple card-always my favorite kind. I'm in love with the Martha Stewart Onyx glitter---much more sparkle than other black glitters I've used--& the candelabra stamp-it is DANG cute. :) Yippee Halloween!

Another Seattle card. :) I've got some Halloween ones coming (my fave!!!), but I thought I'd post this one today. This scene could be a typical Seattle day, rain & all. I love the "road" from the Fancy Borders clear set-it's perfect & quick! I think I should have added some glitter to the rain drops to make them pop-plus, rain is ALWAYS better if it's sparkly! :)
Have a great weekend--rain or sun!

If anyone has ever been to the Pike Place Market in Seattle, you have no doubt seen the fish throwers....there is always a HUGE crowd gathered around watching the craziness happen. It's pretty funny to watch, & the best part is when the guys have to continually ask the crowd...."Does anyone actually want to BUY any fish?" :) I always wonder if they throw more than they sell.
This card is my ode to the fish throwers....& I love the new market stamp! So perfect for us in Seattle, but really for anyone who has a fun outdoor market in their area. For sure go snap up the new Seattle images over at the A Muse website (which is new & beautiful if you haven't checked it out!)
Watch out for those crazy salmon.... :)
