Delight in the simple joys

Here is a card that I made using this week's FREEBIE from Miss Rach.  This sample also works for her Slime Green Challenge (anything green, character or background).  Please remember that you need to use a Miss Rach image and that she has a tab on her blog that has previous freebies.  The sentiment is from TLC.

Lighten up

Miss Rach is starting a Slime Green Challenge this Saturday (anything green, character or background). For this card I used a previous Christmas Light Mouse and had my light be green as well as my background papers.  The sentiment is from a great set at TLC and is something that I wish I could openly say to A LOT of people around the holiday season, "Lighten up".  I get frustrated when we are celebrating the wonder of the greatest holiday and people will run you over at the stores or be rude because they are in a hurry because they have too many events.  I guess I'm just getting too old since I don't have to get my kids to Christmas oh I'm sorry HOLIDAY concerts and nutcracker rehearsals anymore as well as find time to shop and wrap.  Look for this week's freebie so you can enter the challenge or she now has a tab for previous freebies!

Halloween Greetings

I saw the challenge for the Card Concept of Autumn Neutrals and the thought of white pumpkins just got me thinking.....and this is what I came up with.  I embossed the sentiment and distressed the edge of the pumpkins so that each layer would show.  I would call this a Clean and Layered.  I put a sticker on the that I found in my stash when I was cleaning this past week (amazing what you find when you clean your craft area).
