September Mingle and ATCs

Here is my September Mingle from my Byhand Yahoo group. I chose Sept 13, International Chocolate Day!

Here is the front:

and here is the back:

All stamps are from Stampin' Up

And my September ATCs for the same group, I hope they arrive in time! The theme this month was blue, or Asian. I combined blue and Asian for 2 of them. For the 3rd I used my new Colour mists.

A Couple of Cards

I have been very busy with school but managed to pop out a
couple of cards. I'm in a few swaps I should be working on too, so
hopefully there will be more updates on the blog soon.

My friend Tracy just had her second baby girl, so I made her this card. I have
very few baby stamps, so I always seem to be using the same ones every

I found a green scrap of paper on my table, so I used that with my stamp of the song "Momma's
Gonna Buy You a Mockingbird", and stamped at an angle. Then I mounted
it on a larger pink piece of CS. There was too much white, so I stamped
another baby words background stamp in pink on the card. I stamped the
Mommy Bunny and Baby on white andwatercoloured it, then tore around it.
I used the pink ink pad around the edges. I glued everything down,
edged the card with the pink ink, filling in the bare bottom left
corner, then added a bow.

The next one is a Halloween Card:

I found a baggie leftover from a workshop with a green Bazzill piece of CS, a black piece of CS and a scrap of scrapbooking paper. I thought I would make a card using all 3. After gluing the
black onto the green, and the orange paper onto the black, it looked very Halloweenish , so I found a Halloween image from Altered Pages and glued it onto a black strip that I had cut off the original black CS. I thought it needed something else, so I found my new Magenta Cat
stickers, and made a black cat in the upper corner. I used some Dollar Store Rub-ons for the Boo!.
