There's a little cowboy in all of us

This image comes from the new kit at Imagine That! Digis by Kris which is an adorable mix of western and carnival.  I used 3 images and 2 papers and a sentiment from TLC.  I put the image on a die cut and have it so that it stands up.  I outlined the star with Pearl Accents.

Happy Holidays non-traditional colors

Paulette at TLC has a Christmas club going right now and that is where I got the sentiment and paper.  If she makes these available, I will post a link.  I have not used a regular stamp in quite some time for an image so I thought I should do that....this is a Tim Holtz Christmas image that I stamp in two different colors.

You make life sweet

I have one more post for today. Paulette posted this wonderful freebie this morning at TLC and I just had to use it with this card.  I had this image already colored so I just put it together.  I put Crystal Accent on the jar to make it look like glass.  Now....I have to get some sleep and quit playing.  I haven't had a chance to craft like this in a LONG time so it's been fun.

Happy Autumn

I had this image colored last year, but never got a chance to use it so I wanted to make sure to put it to good use this year.  It is from Torico who isn't making digital stamps anymore, but has images available at "My Favorite Things".  The sentiment is from a great set at TLC.
