12 Months in View-September

I've fallen behind in the 12 Months in View challenges.  At the start of the month, we were challenged to make a Fall introductory page.  I haven't played with my Faber-Castell gelatos but the colors seemed perfect for this page.  I also got my August Kit of the Month stamps for Unity Stamp Company that had some wonderful leaf stamps.

It has been a great day.  Worked in the yard and cleaned up the deck and patio.  Put out some mums and hung the Fall wreath.  I made some of the most delicious pork chops for dinner and then played in my art journal.  Now if Marshall University will only win the Battle of the Bell football game against Ohio University the day will be complete.

Thanks for stopping by.

Time in a Journal

Working in my newest journal, I decided to do a page with a Time theme.  I found all these great time quotes.  I also have several different clock stamps.  I made the journal page and an ATC with this theme.  I stuck the ATC on the journal page just for some dimension and texture.  I used both black and clear embossing powder for the clock stamps.

I am entering this page in the Simon Says Stamp blog challenge - Embossed.

Glad you stopped by.  Come visit again soon.

Hit the Books

The challenge this week at Anything But a Card challenge #27 is Hitting the Books.  

My interpretation is this little tag.

I used a Kraft tag and adhered part of an old dictionary page.  I used the page with words that are associated with books. 

The home made rolled flower is supposed to represent an apple but not sure if it translated too well.  And crawling up the side of the tag is a little book worm.

Hope you enjoyed your visit to my little blog.

Gift Card Holder

Tomorrow is my boss Carolyn's birthday.    Several of us went together and got her a gift card.  I wanted to make acute holder for it.  I played with papers and inks and came up with this cutie.

I think she will like it.  I do!

I am entering my gift card holder in the September Challenge "Layers" at Country View Crafts Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Journal Love

I found this great quote on Pinterest and it inspired this page.  I had some newspaper that I had previously used to cover my workspace while spraying inks on another project so I cut the hearts from that.  It's a pretty simple page but I like how it turned out.

I am going to enter this journal page in the mini challenge at Anything But a Card this week with Julie Short.

Thanks for stopping by.
