Boo! I have returned!

It's official. . . our very short summer is drawing to a close. We just got back from a really nice vacation to Yellowstone and the surrounding area. . . saw lots of critters, ate a lot of camp cooking, rode a lot of dusty trails on the 4-wheelers, and had a ton of fun! I really enjoyed the trip but I would be lying if I said I didn't really miss keeping up with my card business and creating new things! More about this later. . . much to my poor husband's chagrin.  :)

Let me kick things off by showcasing my new Halloweenie layout. . . I LOVE Halloween . . . and I have so many fun Halloween projects in store, that I am going to spend a lot of time over the next few months sharing them with you!

First things first. . . I had to check in with Stars & Stamps and snag this week's sketch challenge. Here is Sketch #30.



I also got some new autumn goodies from Close To My Heart! There are new packages of A-2 sized clear cards. . . which are a blast. . . and some beautiful new autumn colors to use. I will list these at the end. . . .

Here is a little card that I made with the new clear cards, the new autumn colors, and a few papers that are by My Mind's Eye. This little vampire guy is my favorite. Isn't he cute? I also used a Trick OR Treat dollar stamp from JoAnn's. These clear cards are awesome for using double-sided papers. It's a lot of fun because - since the card base is clear, you get to enjoy both sides of the cute paper!

That's all for today - if you would like to shop along, just hop over to my CTMH SITE . . .

Clear Cards - item #Z1323   $8.95 for 8 cards with envelopes
I used these autumn ink colors - Black, Autumn Teracotta, Gypsy and a wee bit of Topiary.
The new Fall / Winter Idea Books will be available soon - if you would like a hard copy let me know and I will get one in the mail to you. :)  Mine are on the way!

Way cute vampire! What kind of adhesive do you use on clear cards?

Nancy Keller said...

I have found that the best kind of adhesive to use on the clear cards are the "Zig" style blue glues that dry clear - I also sneak in a glue dot or two on the places that won't show through the clear card, especially for heavy embellishments. I have kept my clear cards for display in the future for my CTMH business and so far, no fails! :)
