Pressed Leaf cards

Here's a sweet and simple card that I made using some pressed leaves given to me by a dear lady at my church.  These were given to me a while ago now, she would often hand me a book in which she had been putting leaves or flowers in, or a book  that she found years later with pressed items in.  Then I make cards with them often of which get sold in the church's bazaar.  I do so miss my church and my dear friend.

You are weird

To begin the week on a funny note, here's a hilarious card from Taylored Expressions Grumplings line that I had to make for the DH when I saw this sentiment.  Very much his personality.  HA!  I think he will get a laugh out of it.

I also think he will acknowledge his weirdness with pride. Definitely

Frazzled Cat

Here's a great stamp from Limited Runs today.  It's a frazzled cat that's kind of the way I feel in the mornings, lol, though in Texas I am usually desiring diet dr pepper in the morning more than coffee.  But I will still occasionally take a donut please (hold the sprinkles).

Hope you are all having a happy October! Check me out on Instagram   https://www.instagram.com/holleybarnhart/

Sometimes

Here's a lovely head shot stamp from Unity stamps.  I added it with a sentiment "Sometimes the people around you won't understand your journey. They don't need to, it's not for them."  I added some great embellishment ribbon from Turkey,  I love the brown circles with the sequins.  So beautiful

Looking Foxy

Here's the cutest image from Unity Stamps.  I just loved this cute fox.  I had to add some great Turkish lace to this card to make a CAS card today.   Did I ever tell  you guys we have a fox at our school?  I mean, we are not a school in the country, but a school in the middle of a million person metropolis.  WHAT?  every now and again the fox pops out during the day to she chagrin of the staff and the delight (or scare) of the kiddos.

Sea Urchin

This cool stamp and sentiment comes from Hero Arts.  For those of you who don't already know me, I love to collect fossils by checking out my local ditches and sea urchins (and the spines) are my favorites! so I do so love to come across a stamp set with some sea urchin stamps.  I wish I could say I have found a stamp with a sea urchin with it's spines attached but no luck there,  I have found them separately though.

I added some very elegant Turkish lace that I got this past summer.  It's actually two sided, so this is half of it.  I just loved it, it's so gorgeous.

True Love Story


 Here's a great image from Unity stamps along with some lovely turkish lace.  I added a sweet sentiment, "A true love story never ends."  How nice is that?  I hope so very true.  My dh and I will hit 25 years this coming year.  WOW.  just saying that out loud makes me feel so old, lol.

But, seeing as how doctors didn't think I would make it this long with all my medical situations, I am more than thankful to be here so I am so happy to be here!  and so so so THANKFUL to be here with my DH.

Beautiful

 Here's a wonderful image and some stunning Turkish lace.  I made this card for the current contest on the YSBP blog.  The sponsor is Lizzy Love (Oddball Arts) and there is a great prize for the winner.  Please join in and share your latest and greatest creations this month with us!

I can't believe we are just a week to the end of Sept!  Wow, the first six weeks of school is almost up.  Pretty soon we will be hitting nine weeks and hopefully will not have any "leveling" (for those of you outside of the education industry, that's when the schools decide if there are TOO few or TOO many teachers in a certain place so they take away teachers or add teachers to certain schools, a shocking change for both teachers and students at nine weeks into the school year!)
