Just Us Girls #257 & Addicted to CAS #47


It's Word Week over at Just Us Girls, and Cheryl has chosen leaves.  Unfortunately, it is becoming the leaf time of year - I prefer Summer.  Here in Arizona we don't get the beautiful color changing of the leaves, we get brown.  Not to much to get excited about there.

With that in mind, while I was perusing my stamps, I came across this rather fabulous quote from Gina K Designs stamp set, Great Sayings.  At this point in time, this quote is a good reminder [for me], so I framed it, and it is sitting on my desk. 

I used the leaves from another GKD set, Tropical Nature.  I like the dual stamping of these leaves.  I am also entering this into the Curtain Call Challenge; leaves.
We would like to also welcome our September Guest Designer, Barbara Hagen!

Pop on over to Just Us Girls #257 and play along!  Leaves is an easy one.


It is also a new week for Addicted to CAS #47 - oriental. There was a small snafu with dates from last week, but this challenge is back to the regular 2 weeks.  We are being sponsored by;
 


I love this image from Innovative Stamp Creations, Friendship. Actually, I love all of this company's stamps - it's just they are unmounted and a pain in the butt to use the glue etc.  I do have an entire notebook filled with these stamps though!  [Gosh, I think I need to start using them again.]

Anyway, pop on over to Addicted to CAS #47 and see what the rest of the team did with this word -- fabulous cards!  Get yourself some ideas and then play along!


A NOTE:  Joanna over at Inspired By Stamping is running a fabulous sale!



Thanks for stopping by~

Your leaves card is very pretty, and it's a shame you can't see the beautiful changing colors of the leaves in AZ. It's just such a beautiful sight to see! And I love the sentiment. Great idea to frame it!

Looooove all that green - reminds me of the tropics of Costa Rica - happy sigh :)

Vicki - again, I'm in awe of your creativity and the flexibility in your style! Everything you touch: inspired and inspiring! Both cards here are fabulous...love the greens of the first, and the image of the second is certainly eye-catching. Yes, you need to bring them from the notebook to your cards!
