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.

So Thankful

Hello again everyone! I haven't been feeling well, so this post is going to be short and sweet.

This week's theme at the Outlawz is die cuts/punches. So, here is my project:
Card Base: Brown scrap
Circle layer: I have had this paper in my stash for quite some time. I do not know who the designer is. The pack has totally fallen apart and the front has come off and is gone.
Rectangles: backside of pumpkin paper
Sentiment: computer generated and printed on Very Vanilla paper from Stampin Up.
Leaves: Martha Stewart Punches punched from scrap paper
Pumpkin: Cut from Cricut craft room basics cartridge using scrap orange paper. I ran it through the embosser with the distressed lines EF then inked the edges with Really Rust ink from Stampin Up. I colored in the stem and vines with sharpie markers and added the doodles with sharpie also. I popped the center of the pumpkin up with one layer of foam tape.

I hope you like it. Have a great week and keep creating!
