Happiness is Fall! (And TWO cards!)

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning my friends!
Today is my birthday and I am a happy gal! I went out last night with the hubby for dinner and a show.  We saw Sully....and it was really a great movie! I feel like we are dating all over again! ;)
Tonight I celebrate with my mom and then my birthday will spill into next week too! ;)

I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog with TWO cards to celebrate fall! They are in two very different color schemes, but the process was identical.

I cut a 3 x3 square panel and sponged various Tim Holtz inks.  I adhered Scrapbook Adhesive's 3D Foam leaves in a random pattern.  Anything hanging over was cut off.  I peeled the tops of the leaves off to reveal the sticky adhesive and sprinkled glitter over them.  I adhered coordinating sequins using Dodz-Mini.

I cut a strip of vellum and used alphabet letters from my very old and vintage Quickutz! I sponged the bottom of the letters With Tim Holtz distress inks and added glossy accents.  I adhered SRM's sticker over the top and attached it to the card front with Dodz-Mini.  For my final step I layered everything with Crafty Foam Tape and tied a vertical piece of twine. The patterned paper by the way, is by Lawn Fawn!

You Make Me Smile!

Good morning friends! 
I hope you are all having a fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend! 
I am up on the SRM Blog today with TWO cards to share! (Don't faint! I know it doesn't happen often!) ;) I used a background stamp that I have NO idea who it is made by, so if it looks familiar to you, please let me know the manufacturer! I stamped in Versamark and embossed it in white.  I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to give it a wash of color.  The first card was done in cool colors, the second in warmer colors. 
I cut flowers using my Silhouette and water color paper.  I colored those using my Zig Markers as well. I used SRM's Thinking of You Sentiment.  I added silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply Store, and a few sequins. 
 My girl came home for the weekend and we've had so much fun visiting with her.  We took her to the zoo and she got to swim in our pool!  We take her back today.....and it's always bitter sweet.  A piece of my heart stays with her each time I drop her off. 
Thank you for stopping by!  
Have a wonderful day!
