You really need to be proud of me and you might ask why???? My scrap ben is getting very low, all the cards I have been making I have used my scraps and even for most of my die cuts. I do have to say for my solid scraps I do still have a lot but my pattern papers is so low. The spellbinder used to cut out the image is called labels 40, for some reason I really like this one and it is a good size for a lot of my images.

You can see here that it is 3D and I see in the upper left corner it says MEOW and you really can not tell, sorry!

The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations sunflower stamp and Heartfelt Creations sunflower die cut. The flower center used some earth elements texture. The greenery is Martha Steward Branch and Fond.

How do you like my mouse? I found him with all my kitty stuff and how fun was that! This is the inside of the card. I know I went a little crazy with the kitty theme but I was having so much fun. The sentiments on the inside my friend made for me, she works at a trophy store and these are the scraps they put in the garbage. She is such a sweetheart to do this for me. I found this pink ribbon and I loved it so I had to add it to the inside. Pink works? right? The kitties down on the ribbon are buttons and I cut off the backs. I can not forget my kitty brad I got them at the convention this summer and though they where so cute.

Have a couple thing to share

I do not know if I ever shared these with you but thought it would be a good time with fall coming and school here. It might be fun to add some pencils to your cards. posted this card last year or so. But did not share how to make the pencils.

How to make Tiny Pencils to add to your cards for an embellishment

Notice the little pencils on the card. I did a tutorial on how to make them.

These are the copic colors I used to color the tooth picks. YR15, R05, black and E39, You need round tooth picks, cut in half,  and a silver pen if you have one. I have a pencil here so you can see one.

I used a clipper to cut them in half.

Then colored the just the middle with YR15.

Carefully make the led by adding just a little black to the pointed tip of the tooth pick. Making sure you leave some tooth pick not colored between the led (black) and the YR15.

On the other end file it down a little so it is smooth and now add the R05 for the eraser end. If you want to add some silver ink between the R05 and YR15 as you can see the silver on the pencil. All done! Small embellishment to add to your card.

Sometimes you feel like a NUT, Sometime you don't!
Template and my card. If you click on the picture you can save as and copy the template.

Here is the link to How to make little pumpkins.http://rubberstampingismygame.blogspot.com/2012/10/how-to-make-little-paper-pumpkins.html
