Timelss Tuesday...leaf or tree

Well today at TT over at Flourishes the challenge is to use a leaf or tree and try not to use a flower. Well I pulled out my set called Herbs and chose the geranium called Scented Geranium cause it's the only leafy type set I had from Flourishes and since it's fall time I think using leaves is wonderful. I got out my Kalidicolor ink called Royal Satin which has the rust, wine, and blue tones. My sentement is from the window set . I chose a card base of kraft color which SU calls crumb cake...just a second while I lick the crumbs off my fingers . I added a band of navy, and rust and then added a bit of twine for a rustic look. Easy peasy card and fits the challenge.
If you didn't see my craft room yet just droop or if you prefer drop your eyes down a bit and you can see it below.
Happy week fellow stampers.

My Craftroom...

 These are not the best pictures ; however, it gives you an idea of my work area and the place I call my little hole in the wall. This was taken from the door of the room and gives you a sort of complete view.
 On this side of the room I have some organizers that have cubbie holes in which I have put some steel boxes that hold my different supplies. My walls are sage green and my desk etc. is black so my steel boxes are both sage and black. Neat huh???
The top picture shows my arty candle decor and my flower holder. Looks great over desk # 2 on which I keep my die cutter and paper cutter. The bottom picture is my closet which holds my colored papers all organized in marked shelves.
Hope you have a pleasant weekend fellow bloggers. It's kind of cool here but the sun did come out so how can you complain!

Timeless Tuesday...make an ornament

Happy TT fellow bloggers and today we are asked to make an ornament for the Tuesday challenge. Well I didn't have any real ornament stamps by Flourishes so I improvised and used my angel from the Alleluia set and made her into an ornament. I have named her Hazel as I think she looks like an old angel and needed an old name. I colored her hair with tons of silver ( just like my own) and added a bit of glitter pen to everything cause angels are glittery I think. Have you seen an angel??? Well me neither so I'm just guessing on most of this. This is probably as close to me ever  seeing an angel so, hello Hazel. She is placed on two circle die cuts from Spellbinders and colored in very softly with just a touch of soft blue. Easy ornament and I'll have to set her aside to adorn my Christmas tree. Hope you are all off to a good start of a good week. It's cold here but I'm not complainig as the heat was getting me down. Take care and talk soon.

Timeless Tuesday ...get inspired

Today at TT at Flourishes we are to get inspired by the top photo. Wow it's autumn looking and so very colorful so I chose to use the new set A Season of Thanks which has some beautiful images which have to remind us of Thanksgiving. My card done in the purple tones actually was the first one I did with this image but while surfing the web after I made the card I found Beate had made one almost identical so I redid and came up with the green one. I don't know how it happens when I make a card and then find another designer ( I know I'm not a real designer but let's pretend) has done a card just like mine. Once again I'm being "corny" and using this Indian corn image and my water colored pencils to do it up. Used my Spellbinders oval both regular and scalloped to set this off. Found some nice BG papers and added some bling and done. Both cards will be used for Thanksgiving to wish happiness to friends. The purple one is already in the mail to my cousin in Canada since their Thanksgiving is  next Monday.
We are still having hot weather and I'm getting sick of it....come on let's have a cool down please.
Happy week fellow stampers and see you next time.
