Friends are the Nicest Thing

I love this stamp set from SU called The Nicest Things, so-named because the sentiment with it says "A friend is one of the nicest things you can have and one of the best things you can be." When I saw that, coupled with such a cute image, I knew I wanted this set. I paired it with Cosmo Cricket's Nutmeg DP's and the tag is from a SU set called Tiny Tags. I used my Labels Seventeen Spellbinder's die with it and that pretty much sums it up. We had a lovely week-end and I was refreshed by the message at church yesterday reminding us from Psalm 90:12, "So teach us to number our days that we may present to You a heart of wisdom." God wants us to make wise use of our time.....something we tend to forget oftentimes as we pursue more frivolous things. The message points were to be Fearless and to be Faithful. It definitely gave me something to work on as I am reminded of this truth. I hope you have a lovely week as we close out the month of October and rapidly approach the holiday season. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Halloween Tilda

I've been waiting a long time to ink up this combo and I love it. These are both Magnolia images and when I saw the quilt (Picnic Quilt, from '08) I decided that this Witch Tilda with Hat ('09)would look so cute sitting on it. I used Cosmo Cricket's Pixie-licious papers, but I didn't choose them until after Tilda was all colored. I must have subconsciously memorized that color scheme in my head because it was a perfect match to the papers. I chose some leaves and acorns from Flourishes' Falling Leaves set to surround her with instead of flowers. Once again I used my PTI wool felt and their Beautiful Blooms II dies for a flower for the corner. The tiny leaves stamped on the sentiment and the sentiment are from PTI's Mailbox Greetings set. I've taken pictures several cards I've done recently so hopefully I can post more cards for you than I've done in awhile. Thanks for stopping by. I hope this month of October has been an enjoyable one for you. It's such a beautiful time of year.
