A Golden Fall

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fall challenge.  The weather here in San Antonio,Texas is still hot but the mornings are cooler and it’s starting to feel like fall weather is getting closer.  I have another fall inspired project created with the Days of Gratitude stamp set.  I wanted to use it in different way so I decided to heat emboss all the images in gold embossing powder.  Here’s my project.

Amidst Christmas is a Happy Birthday Wish!

It always seems that birthdays in December are a bit overshadowed by Christmas.  So in honor of my friends birthday, which was on December 21, I decided to make a card for her using her favorite colors Always Artichoke and Old Olive.  I added the gold and black for elegance.  I like the results.  I hope this provides inspiration for your December birthday cards. By the way I don’t think this year she felt her birthday overshadowed by Christmas.  Her birthday was very celebrated.  She received many gifts and some were from Stampin’ Up!
