Witch's Hat!

I tried to case this from some Witch's hats I've seen posted. It's not exactly how I wanted it to look, but I will definitely give it another try. These will make great little treats for Halloween. 

This is using the petal cone die. I love all the things you can make with this. I've used basic black & razzleberry. I love this color!!

Have a great day all!! Shelley

Simply Soft

I finally got a chance to play with the Simply Soft stamp set.
These stamps are just so pretty!

I kept it pretty simple. I used Marina Mist & Whisper White paper and Marina Mist ribbon. I used the polka dot embossing folder on the white to add some texture.

Happy Anniversary

Today is my future in-laws 36th Anniversary. Unfortunately Mike told me this evening! I could have used a card I already had made but it was a great excuse to make a mess of my table again!

I used the Delicate Doilies set again, I really love it.
The sketch is from Mojo Monday.

Have a great day!! Shelley

I included some pics taken at picnic's this summer.

I used the Delicate Doilies stamp set.

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Unfortunately it was miserably hot here on the east coast of the US. I'm hoping for some nice summer weather soon, a month of this is just too much. Can't wait til Autumn!

Today starts the new at Scrap It with a Song.
