Birthday Wishes

I couldn't be any happier that it's Friday! It's been a long challenging week and I am looking forward to a bit of R and R with the family.  
Cortney has a photo shoot tomorrow in downtown Chicago and Sunday we are going on our annual apple picking adventure. 
Today's card is a hodge podge of pieces I had laying around my craft desk.  A left over flower from another project, leaves I had stamped, embossed, and water colored using a JustRite stamp (Modern Lattice Cling), also a reject from another project. A half piece of doily.  
I added some splatters of green paint, epoxy dots, an SRM sticker, and some fun silver thread.
It's a bit wild, messy, free form.....whatever you want to call it.  ;)
Thank you for stopping by! I am once again writing this before heading out to another short and sweet post!
Have a great day!!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Penny Black Blog Hop!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Penny Black have teamed up for a fun blog hop this week!

I love this Penny Black stamp called, Deco Tree. It is so whimsical and fun!
I used pops of purple and silver accents.  I used Stickles for a bit of glitz on the tree.

The Witching Hour

Fall is officially here so I am already starting to get into the Halloween spirit. I am not a fan of "scary" Halloween.  I definitely prefer the cuter side of this holiday.  I love this image from Crafty Secret's Halloween Creative Scraps. I wanted to glam it up a bit, so I added black Stickles to the perimeter of the image.  I added clock hands, rhinestones, and a few sequins. 
I had this polka dot tissue paper left over from my birthday so  I created a double ruffle to slip under the image.  I also added seam binding, twine, and a couple of rusty jingle bells.  
I am getting ready to head out to school in a bit, so my post is going to be short and sweet today!
Have a great Tuesday!
