Scatterbrain

Yeah, that's me!  I realized that several weeks ago (or was it days ago) someone left me a blog award....can't remember who, I am so ashamed.  So please forgive me!  Donna at Butternut Sage also gave me one yesterday--you can read all about it (and some about her) here.  She has some wonderfully creative ideas on her blog, visit while you're there.  And you can see her working at a CUPCAKE bakery!  Yum!  She thinks I am too busy to pass it on, but truthfully, I just could never only pick out a few---and that's the truth!  So I will just enjoy the fact that there are sweet loving women out there who care about others and want to pass it along---so consider it passed along to all of you!  So there you have it, I am a scatterbrain....so sorry! 

But this scatterbrain does have a card or two to show you today--

These coordinated designer papers SU has are always good for a quick easy card.  I used a sentiment from Holiday Blitz along with the open circle from Circle Circus.  If you look closely, you'll see I did a little "shadow" stamping:

DSCF4932 once in Sahara Sand, then again (using my stamp-a-ma-jig) in Stazon black.  This color combo was one I was just playing around with...a little on the masculine side, but I guess with those daisies, I think I should send it to a woman!!!  Okay, here's a more fall-themed one:

DSCF4933

This one uses Really Rust DP from the Hostess Patterns III pack, along with some Kraft paper and a little leaf & sentiment from Falling Leaves....remember, from the Catty Cruise?  Sweet!  Added a little scallop border and "eyelet" with my 1/16" punch!

Thanks for visiting today---got something special tomorrow!  And here are a few photos from right outside my back door:

  8. I think I need a new camera and we're going shopping for one, but before I go would you mind telling me exactly what brand, etc., your camera is?

    Your garden blew me away with wishful thinking.

    I have a dictionary back home that is chocked full of dried and pressed flower petals. Why is it so full? I can never remember that I have them!

  10. Both of your cards are so pretty! I love their simple clean look! I am getting excited for autumn!

    Your flowers are gorgeous! I love that you got a picture of the hummingbird moth! They are so cool! This is my love/hate time in the garden-my veggies are ripening and flowers in abundance but the weeds are so big! I have neglected them so badly this year. The goldenrod I let go because the butterflies love it! It kinda looks nice next to the really tall butterfly bush and the purple coneflowers anyway...so we just won't tell hubby it's a weed!

  13. What beautiful garden photos. Our weather has not been favorable to my garden, so no pictures this year.
    I love the cards you made. That layout is fabulous. One of my all time favs that I made was done with a similar card sketch. I really like the twine around the leaf, that is a sweet touch.
