Woot-woot…the weekend is here and that means that it is time for our 2 day post! Today is Simple Saturday and then POP back tomorrow to see Step It Up Sunday and the changes I make to this card!

I know that the first day of Autumn is right around the corner but for today – it is IN THE HOUSE today on my blog! I ADORE this time of the year and each year I play an “eye spy” on certain trees in the area that are always sooooo beautiful when the color changes – we are a way from that time but I like to get excited for the color!




This stamp set is in the annual catalog and it is simply beautiful! Just look at the detail on the images….simply FALL AT IT’S BEST! I was thrilled that it was carried over and I hope it is around for many, many more years! There are matching framelits….which makes if a breeze to stamp and cut!






Do you remember last weekend I shared with you how I soften the fibers in the paper? Well today I did the same ~ I balled up the paper…..worked it with the bone folder…..balled it up again and then smoothed it out, a quick stamp, a run through Mr. Big Shot – we are good to go! Just look are the soft texture – LOVE IT!






I know that I have not blogged a bunch with this stamp set below…but hang tight, my creative engine is just getting started! This might appear to be a Fall set but I see it as a super versatile one….HAVE FUN WITH COLOR and you can change the whole feel of the card!

The sentiment I used here is the TOPS, it seems to be perfect for Fall/Thanksgiving but I would encourage you to think out of the box and use it ALL YEAR LONG!







Now I say…WOW, I know that I would be beaming to receive this! The colors, the texture, the gorgeous envelope…say no more! One thing that I want to make sure I point out is…The card is on Sahara Sand Card Stock – that’s right…a bit different but the end result comes out to a super fall card! I invite you to play with other colors for your bases!










I hope to see you front and center tomorrow to see what is up my sleeve with Step it Up Sunday! I know that a sale on the clearance rack brings out the best in us…..things are being depleted so make sure that you get on in the savings!

Have a SUPER Saturday and see you in the morning!
