Fall cards for grandgirls

Fall is in the air here on the Cape.  The breeze was coming off the bay today. I decided to make a few fall cards for the girls.  The girls love to get mail.  I used stamps and papers from  Amuse Artstamps and Hero Arts Stamps. I am definitely a stamp-aholic and collector of patterned  papers, ribbon, and embellishments.  I love to try different styles from simple (like these) to vintage, shabby, or glittery. What is your style?

A perfect 10

Today is an absolutely beautiful day here on Cape Cod --warm, sunny, no humidity, no clouds.  I'd be more than happy to have many more of these days as we head into fall.  Today is also the official first real blog and an introduction.  I'm a 60 something wife to my husband of 42 years.  He is a retired professor who loves his classic cars and his time at the gym.  I'm a mom to my two adult children.  I'm a grandmother (Mimi) to my three beautiful grandgirls (see picture in right column.)  I spend my time crafting and gardening.  I've been crafting for as long as I can remember with cardmaking and paper crafts as my current passions.  I acquired my love of gardening from my grandparents; herbs and flowers are my favorites.
I want to thank my friend Joyce,  Scrap for Joy, for encouraging me to start this blog. I recently sent her a small gift that I had made using Julie Ebersole's, Paper Trufflez, template for a stationary box. I hope to post more pictures soon. I think this is going to be fun. Hope you will enjoy a peek into my life.

I think I can, I think I can

Here it is, a month later, and I am still trying to get this up and running. I have managed to add a background, thanks to Aqua Poppy. I hope to be back again tomorrow to take the next step.  By the way, what is the next step?
