Vegas baby

Had written down this color combo way back, when using the online Color Combo site located here.
I have carried it around on a piece of paper and had it near my stamping stuff for a while. Finally had this card come to life. It was for my friend before she went on a trip to Vegas. The warm sun in the card is supposed to be tempered by the cool breeze in the background.

SU Cardstock- Cool Caribbean, Ruby Red, Soft Sky, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie.
SU Ink- Purely Pomegranate, Barely Banana, Soft Sky, Close to Cocoa, Basic Black.
Stamps-girl- Wordsworth, swirl- Autumn Leaves, alphabet- PSX.
sun design my own with aqua painter.

gift from Vegas

And these are the stamps she got me while she was in Vegas!! Love them!!

Sorry for the blurry photos.

fall is the best

Went out this past week to find my favourite Yankee Candles for fall- Pumpkin Spice. Have been burning it off and on for the past 10 days I guess. It is beginning to feel like fall. The leaves on the trees have some changes and I love it all!! I am a fall girl!! It is my season that I find great delight in, which is ironic for a girl who doesn't really like change. Pulled out some cute patterned paper and these fall stamps that I had bought last year and went to creating this past week on my days off. So here are the two fall cards I did.

Patterned paper- KI, Swirl stamps-Autumn Leaves, Pumpkin and oval stamps - Amuse, Word stamps- Stamping Up. Cardstock- Sahara Sand, More Mustard, Cranberry Crisp- Stamping Up. Ink- Stampin Up Classic inks More mustard, Chocolate chip, True Thyme. Ribbon- SU True Thyme. Punch- Marvy. Other Circle Cutter.

Okay, so the trees in real life aren't this colour yet, I was imagining a later fall for this card. :) This card size is 4 1/2 x 4 1/4. Just something new for a change.

Patterned paper- KI, Cardstock- Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand, Whisper White- SU. Ink- Classic Ink SU Chocolate Chip. Stamps- Lovely as a Tree set-SU, Small Script- SU. Oval Punches- SU, Brad- unknown, Other Colored the tree with my Twinkling H2O's.

Camp Creations

So I spent two weeks as camp nurse at the end of July and beginning of August. It was fantastic. In my spare time though I got to make several cards as I had taken supplies with me. I ended up with several cards that I was quite pleased with. I even made this book mark which I used while reading my book for the week at camp: Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures by Vincent Lam.

Made with scraps from my SU cardstock pile, a pink brad and a Bazzill flower.

The inside says "U Rock"

Cardstock, ink, oval punches - SU
Stamp saying- Fontwerks
Other- pink brad

Again using my scraps:

Stamps- Swirl and flower Autumn Leaves
Cardstock, ink- SU and versamark
PP- Sandylion
other- pink brad

Never forgotten

Where in the world is Jill?

Yes I am still around. Yes I am still making cards. Yes I have proof that over the summer I have been to busy. Yes I am sorry that it took me so long to post. The question is, will you notice?


My favourite card this summer, I think.
