Yahoo! Back to Fun Times!!

Summer is finally just a memory as we all say Hello to Autumn. This means crisp fall smells like apples and beautiful falling leaves... It also means that I am back with CARDZ TV after the summer hiatus. This time around the team was broken into three different categories. First are the Card Designers (that's me!), the 3D Team, and the Gallery Designers. Today I am going to share a card I created using various papers from my stash and a sentiment from Cardz TV.

My papers are from Creative Imagination(polka dot), Stampin' Up (solid tan) and the striped is a piece of paper that I bought in a pack of loose papers at a garage sale (so I don't know the company). The brown ribbon is from Michael's as well as the buttons and twine. My stamped banners are from a stamp set from CTMH. The inks I used are from Stampin' Up. The sentiment is from the Cardz TV stamp set "Good Times". A little Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink was used around all the edges of the paper to give them more of an aged look.
I thought this card would be perfect for a guy as it isn't too "frilly and fluffy". Of course it would be perfect for a gal also!
Have a great day and be sure to go over to Cardz TV to see all of the wonderful cards made by my team mates!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Paperminutes - Fall (my colors are all representative of Fall)
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Oldie But Goodie - Anything Old (my stamp sets, paper and ribbon)
Through the Craft Door (TTCD)- Anything goes

I'm Back...!

Hello everyone. I am so sorry that I was away most of the summer. I had such a busy summer that I didn't even have time to sit and blog! Lots of good family times and a trip to Las Vegas with my girlfriend where I also spent time with more of my family !
I am now off of my wonderful long vacation and back to the "real world". Back to school! My students this year are such little sweethearts. I know I will love the school year!
Anyway... I did have time to work on some things this summer. So I will share some of my creations here with you.

This card was done with a Wiff of Joy stamp that I bought at a garage sale this summer. Isn't that mouse adorable? His name is Henry... The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

This card again uses a sentiment stamp from Close to MY Heart. I tried to do a simple card, not sure if it is but it turned out alright I guess. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Crafty Girls - Anything Goes (my 1st card)
Crafting By Design - Anything Goes
