Fall Card


I had a moment to get into my space tonight and I was itching to use one of  the $1 wooden stamps I found in Michaels dollar section. I also wanted to use my new SS from The Petal Press from I {heart} Papers…but I ran out of time…so I will have to finish that one up tomorrow. I was inspired by Alanna (with this card), to get this in as many challenges as possible ha ha, so here they are…

Oh, I love this card - the image, the colors, AND the buttons! Perfect!!

Funny, my Mojo Monday card is going involve a $1 "stamp," too. The story behind the card involves buttons as well. I hope it all turns out. Tune in tomorrow night to see ...

Your craft space is looking so good. Those drawers, cupboards, and windows to boot - a stamper's dream.

I can handle for floral couch and think there are probably a lot of flowery sofas in people's lower levels. Hang on to it long enough and floral will make a come back and you'll move it back upstairs. LOL.

And speaking of flowers, those mums are gorgeous and obviously, hardy little fellas.

Have a good Tuesday!

Carla said...

Great card!! Awesome stamp . . . I'll have to check those $1 bins more often!!

First, your card is beautiful!!! That tree stamp is wicked cute, I don't know if it's supposed to be cute but it is! lol. And I love the shades of brown.

Second, I notice you keep your blocks in a drawer. I wasted money on the block organizer and I say wasted because I never put the blocks away... they just sit in a pile on my workspace.

And we organize our inks the same way... lol. I don't have them all like it looks like you do, but I keep them stacked on a shelf like you do, in color groups like that too.

Hi Sarah! LOVE this card girl! Cool-wooden-look to it, and I love that image! Great choice with those buttons as well.

Awesome scrap/stamp space...very nice!

Thanks for playing along with us at Penny's Challenges, and we hope you join us again tomorrow as well!

Let's start with the card. FABULOUS! Is that a nesties die that I don't have? Is that possible?

Your flowers are beautiful and your photography is flawless. I wish I lived closer because I so need some pointers.

Now on to your crafting area. I will chalk this up to it being new because if it always looks so neat, we are going to have some problems. Mine is in a perpetual state of chaos unless I am holding a workshop. Also because I have a tiny crafter who is constantly in my things. :)

Alanna said...

Great card Sarah. I love the new stamp and all the buttons. :) Glad I could provide you with some challenges.

Your space looks so great. I loved looking inside your drawers. And your mums are gorgeous.

Jeanne said...

Gorgeous card, Sarah and gorgeous work space! I think if I had that space, inside the house, I would be crafting more! You are truly blessed to have such talent and an inspiring space to use that talent!

Laurel said...

Love the card, and your basement!

Jessica G. said...

Elegant take on the sketch; it's a perfect way to showcase some of those buttons I've been saving (hoarding).

Awesome stamping space -- I so wish I could have cabinets!

Gorgeous mums!!

Sparkle said...

Your card is so pretty! And I love your space! Your lighting looks really neat!

Julie M said...

Great card, Sarah. Love the simple, clean look (and the wiggly line effect of the cream/brown/cream buttons). And I am drooling, I tell you, drooling at your craft space. What a gorgeous, big, bright room.

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.

I love this card, it's elegant and the idea with the buttons is really fantastic

Sarah, I love your card. The buttons are fantastic.
I came here from Caryl's blog to see your craft room. It is wonderful! Did you tell your dad how you wanted it? I have a small bed room in the basement but I would love to move to the big open space by the windows. It's just that you have to walk through that space and I don't know if I can keep things organized enough. Yours looks great.
