Charmed...I'm Sure!

So, today's Ways to Use it challenge was to use a charm on your card. I honestly didn't think that I had any, so I wasn't going to play. While working on some samples for the next My Favorite Things release, I ran across these heart lock and key charms I got as a door prize at the last swap I went too...score!! I decided to make a card for my future SIL shower which is the 4th of October. They are getting married in November and are going with all Fall colors. I don't know about you, but I think this is perfect for a fall bride...IMHO, LOL!! I stamped the bride from She's All That with Chocolate Chip Craft Ink, which I then embossed with clear embossing powder. I used my Rectangle Nestabilities to cut it and the layers out. I added spiral clips with some gingham ribbon from Offray and chocolate satin from American Crafts. The rust ribbon is some I got from a share with Jody(texasjodylynn). I added some white brads from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts and then pierced a border around the card and the main image. That is it for me now!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

Happy Fall

Isn't this birdhouse and little birdie so CUTE!! It is from the new Harvest Blessings Anna Wight set from Whipper Snapper. The sentiment is from her other new release Give Thanks. These sets were released on the 15th, so if you don't already have them, RUN don't walk, to the Whipper Snapper website and get them now!!!LOL!! They really are super cute, and the Give Thanks set has a ton of wonderful sentiments in it. I stamped the birdhouse on white card stock with Black Stazon and colored it in with my SU markers. The bird was stamped separately and cut out, only because I stamped it next the bird house as an afterthought, and it was crooked..DOH!! So I decided to pop him up after coloring and make some movement now he is shaking a tail feather.....hehehe!! Anyway, I STILL have no clue where this paper came from, but I do love the beautiful colors in it. I layered it with Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy and Pumpkin Pie. I used some wide Burgundy grosgrain with some pumpkin ribbon on top of it, and then added my sentiment with a silver brad. I decided to use several of the word window punched tags so that it would give it some color. A little paper piecing, some more silver brads and it was done!! That is it for me now, unless by some miracle my nephew actually allows me to do something besides hold and feed him today!! Wish me luck!!
