October Already!

How did I miss the month of September?  Wow, time do fly!
My kids were here for a long Labor Day weekend and I have a new picture of Max on the page to show you.  He is such a cute kid with a great sense of humor! I miss him every day, but I am looking forward to being in Hawaii for his 2nd birthday on December 8th.

But, September has been a busy card month.  I've been practicing my craft and learning new techniques.  Here is a good one:

Since the card is in 3D off the page, the scanner doesn't get too close to the art work. But, I think you can see what was done.  We had a new baby added to our extended family and so I proceeded to made this card to send with a gift.  

And, another baby boy was born a week ago and here's another baby card about to go into the mail.  There are a lot of sparkly edges that you can't see in this scan. 

I made this card for my card making friend Barbara for her birthday in October.  I love this stamp from Heartfelt Creations.  I used my Copics and a glitter pen to perk the colors.

I'm not so sure how I feel about this one.  Again, the scanner didn't do it justice, so it is just an ok card.

As you can see, I am not showing any of the photos of my cards.  There is much to learn about photography and lighting for my cards to appear properly.  When I figure it out, I'll post the photos.

There are lots of other cards, since I've been having fun making cards, but I'll post one more.  This one is not quite finished but wanted to post it anyway.  The stamp is also from Heartfelt Creations and the colors are Copics.

Oh, I want to post this one.  For the first time in years, I didn't send out home made New Years cards for Rosh Hashanna. But, I always send one to my friend Barbara as not just a personal greeting for the holiday, but because I just love sending her cards and receiving hers.  This card was embossed and sparkled and all sorts of things.  You can't see the detail too well, but you can get the idea. 

I'll post more when I get the time and feel the urge. LOL
Happy Autumn!
