A few Christmas cards

This is a non traditional Christmas card I made up for a swap..this is one of my very favorite Whiff of Joy stamps!  I adore the little gnome looking figures designed by Norma Fickle. So cute! I have colored her with copics and paired her with some Scenic Route paper snips to bring out the blues and greens. The seam binding I hand dyed was my first attempt, lol! 

Here we have a cute little hedgie Penny Black stamp..who doesn't love Hedge Hogs ?!? And I'm really liking lollipop flowers too..

I had to control my urge to embellish..some people like flat cards for mailing purposes so I try to hold back the chunky embellies when doing is it ever hard!!

School is back in action...woohooo!

OK..I have a few mixed emotions about my little guys going back to school. I love having them home, having the freedom to jump in the vehicle and go out of town for a few days...spending time together at the lake, Gatlinburg, the beach...   but on the other hand...its also very nice to have a few hours to myself to shop in peace, watch TV..(which I haven't done in weeks)..and to actually go in my scrapbook!  

Anyway..I wanted to share with you a few Halloweeny cards I made up for a swap. I love this Pink Paislee paper. Bad photo lighting I know..sorry!  I snapped a quick shot of them before I stuck them in the mail. FAll is just around the corner..I'm SOO excited..Love love Fall!

Maine trip photos...

I had the most awesome time in was absolutely beautiful there!  I love the little fishing villages, a photographers dream!!  So quaint and vintage looking..just like I imagined it...Here are some pics I took along my journey up the coast.  Kennebunkport and BarHarbor were two of my fave spots, I'll have to take another  longer trip to spend more time there next time.
