Life is Beautiful X Two

 Happy Labor Day to all my American friends! I am a little late today....I've been "laboring" all morning in the garden and the laundry room, LOL!  Too bad those green beans, peppers and tomatoes didn't take a vacation, too!

I made these two cards before going on vacation, so I thought I would share them today; they both use the new set Life is Beautiful!  So here we go:


Both cards use DSPs from Plaid Tidings; for the fall one, I stamped directly onto the DSP.  The trunk is Crumb Cake and the leaves are Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Terracotta Tile.  I couldn't really figure out if the leaf stamp nestled a certain way into the tree branches, so I just stamped away, and I like the effect...like leaves blowing in the wind!  


The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler to coordinate with the mat around the DSP.  The second one is a Christmas card; the tree is stamped in Misty Moonlight and the snowflakes are stamped with Seaside Spray:


I stamped a sentiment from Toile Christmas in Poppy Parade and diecut it and another banner with the matching dies.  I also added a couple little "swirls" in Seaside Spray to add to the wintery feeling:


That's it for today...back to the beans and laundry!  Thanks for popping in today!  Before I go, here's a couple shots of Cassidy and family on a recent nature hike to Ferncliff Wildlife and Wildflower Preserve:

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I can’t believe how this child has grown, it seems like yesterday when she was a tiny baby, she is still adorable

I love the two different looks you got with that pretty tree! I love the colorful leaves on plaid which is a wonderful nod to fall, and the snowflakes look equally pretty on the Christmas card! Wishing you and yours a wonderful Labor Day!
