WE LOVE FALL...using stamps to make a background

hello fellows,
hope you are all doing great.

i want to start congratulating the new artful delight team.
they all are super talented ladies and i am sure you will enjoy their projects too.

-here is my last card for the team using the october card kit-

We Love Fall
3.75" x 5"
let's start with this sneak peek :D

i have been anxious to use that beautiful fabric flower since i got the kit, but because i hardly plan what i am going to do, at the end it did not fit with what i made...but here it is, Finally!!!

the sentiment is from the webster pages sticker sheet. it has so many beautiful sentiments and some you can use as tags too.

i used decorative scissors for the border, haha. they have been collecting dust for a long time now and before they rust on me, well, i decided to give them a shot again. i am glad i did.

in this kit we received two stamp sets and this one i chose for my background is from "paper smooches": gently seasoned.
i used a chalk ink for a soft effect and i did not worried if i did not press hard enough. to the contrary, i am glad i did not 'cause i am very satisfied with the results.

here is a bit of a closer look.
 the orange cardstock i used for the base is a bazzill one and it also came in this month's kit.

and a sad good buy or see you later to artful delight.

after today i am just staying with the nani ke ola dt for a bit longer and i am planning to semi retired from blogging for a short while until i get my attic stuff in order and de-clutter as much as i can. this hobby has taken a hold of my life and you know i suffer from chronic pain and can do just so much. i choose to do what i enjoy and put the pain in the back burner for a bit. oh well, this is life and this is what i have to deal with. no pity here, please.
i will do my best to continue with my etsy shop to make a bit extra cash to help my son with his college expenses. and i will also be de-cluttering my craft room to make room for sewing. hehe----all these are just plans and goals that are not written in stone. hehe. maybe i come back next week and say oh no, what was i thinking when i said i was going into hibernation, lol.

you all have a great week and go and see what the new team has in store for you. remember they offer a monthly challenge and a random winner will receive a kit: scrapbooking or card. the choice will be yours.

take care now and i will see you soon, bear with me for a bit.

and, happy halloween you all who enjoy it.
