Fall friendship.....

So this is a card I made for some of my best buds - it kinda bothers some of the 'non-stamping' ones that I make them cards- they seem to feel guilty that they didn't 'get' me anything in return....and I say 'pish & tosh' to that idea - because, like most of you, I LOVE making cards!!! and you can only make SO MANY CARDS before you need to give them away :)

I LOVE using paint samples....altho' I haven't come to terms with the idea of just getting them to use on cards. Perhaps that's unethical, since I don't really plan to choose paint based on them....I'll have to think this through a little more...hmmmm....but the fact is that I have enough packratted away to last me for awhile. The image is an Inkadinkadoo clear stamp, and the paper is from the newer 'Indian Summer fall stack'- I used some more of the mustard card stock I have a ton of, and ran it through the Cuttlebug. Top if off with a leaf button and some twine...
...inside I used another Inkadinkadoo swirl, and a 'CTMH' happy fall from the 'season of color' set...

....and for the 'piece of resistance' (which is English for "I can't spell it in French :) I gathered up a bunch of old & new doilies and dyed them orange with Rit dye - just a little something fun to spread the Fall love <><


  1. WoWzA, this is w-a-y kewl!!! Love the stamp and I really love how you used the paint sample card! And now we're twins!!!!

    Great job!!

  2. I LOVE Fall so so so much...I look forward to it all year! I love your card and your now-orange doilies to celebrate the season! Isn't God's creation unbelievably wonderful!?!

  3. Such pretty colors! I also love using paint chips in my paper crafts. The colors are so fantastic and they come in so many colors.

    The orange doilies are great, too!


thanks for leaving some joy :)
