About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Autumn Card

I have discovered that I really like making autumn cards. I think it has to do with the colors. Any who, here is what I have come up with this time:
So, here's what I did:
  1. Papers: Early Espresso from Stampin' UP, Very Vanilla from Stampin' Up, Free digital paper pack called Shell from Linda Tieu
  2. Ribbon: from my stash
  3. Glitter: Glitter tape from Recollections
  4. Leaf: I'm honestly not sure where I got this, but thought it was perfect for this card.
  5. Square Background: Always Artichoke and Really Rust ink from Stampin up.
  6. Buttons: from Stampin' Up.
CWLC: Tic Tac Toe
Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes
Cardz TV: Celebrate the Harvest
Paper Play Time: Use 3 different Papers
Craft Your Passion: Glitter and Gloss
An Inky Situation: Sketch

I hope you like it.

Have a creative day.
