I hope everyone's back to school season has been a successful one!!  It's kind of nice to get back into routine.  I spent most of the summer waiting on my 14 year old to shower and get ready to start the day, she was usually finished about NOON!  (geez!)  I love Fall!!!  This year we will enjoy Fall while watching my youngest play soccer.  She's older now, so we get official refs, goalies, the whole enchilada!  I love watching her tear up the field!!!

I have just a few simple cards to share today.  I have been very busy making things, it just doesn't show on my blog right now.  Hopefully in the next week or so, I will be caught up, and have everything ready to share!

This first card is a Christmas card that my mom has already snatched up!  I love the cool-rustic feeling of it.

This was made with one of The Greeting Farm's new releases- Sparkling Season.
It's a great high-quality clear stamp set!

I used a lot of blue distress ink, and roughed up the sides of my papers.  The blue/brown patterned paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle. (last year)  I wet embossed a pretty glittery finish on top on my blue distress stamped image.  

This one is a little more "black tie".  Used the same set here.

Thought I would try something a little more "zazzy"!  Lots of sparkle and bling.  Two completely different cards from the same stamp set.  I really got to get more Christmas stuff started!!  I did work on some seriously cool ornaments over the holiday weekend with my youngest daughter Maddie.   (can't wait to share those!) 

Have a great weekend!!
