Feathers and Wreaths!

Hello Friends!  Happy September already!  And just like that the summer is over and school starts in two days!  Boo for the end of summer although thankfully the weather is still warm!  This past weekend was Labour Day weekend meaning it was a long weekend!  Chad went to Regina for his annual guys trip to watch there football team play there (he had a great time) and the kids and I went to his family cabin with a bunch of the nieces and nephews and family!  The nearby town had a festival so we enjoyed fireworks, a parade, and some kids activities!  We really had a great weekend!

Today I have a card to share that features feathers again!  But it's different feathers!  I've actually had this die for a while and I made this card a bit ago and than didn't post it, and than didn't make anything else with this die...shame on me!


 I used a different color scheme for me, I think I could use it as a masculine card.  This morning I thought the card was missing something so I added the enamel dots!  I used My Favorite Things Feathers and Arrow die, along with Hero Arts tweed background and WPlus9 Designs sentiment!

I am entering this card into Simon Says Stamp challenge of anything goes!  

Wih Fall just around the corner I added some new wreaths to my shop!

I love how the striped yarn looks in fall colors!  You can find this wreath here.

I added a Welcome wooden word to a wreath, I love this idea for a wreath!  


You can find this wreath here.

And I made my first burlap wreath!  :>  It was a fun challenge to make a new wreath and I am excited to offer them in my shop now!

You can find this wreath here!

Within two days of adding these wreaths to my shop I sold one!  Which one do you think?  I sold the striped wreath!  

Well that's it for me!  I will draw a winner for my summer giveaway next post, this post shall count.  I have some stuff to do to prepare for back to school!

love this Anita. It's a great die and the enamel dots are fabulous on it. You have had an awesome summer and I bet the kids are going to miss spending so much time with you. But they will enjoy their new school friends.

Love this feather card - so elegant with that background. Can't tell if you have used black or a very dark green - whichever it is, it is stunning. Your wreaths are simply amazing - makes me want to embrace fall.

Oh I totally love the look of your card, Anita--super color combo & the feather dies go onto my wishlist now! You always amaze me with your wreaths. All 3 are beautiful & perfect for Fall, but the different look of the burlap one really grabbed my attention--love it!

Hi Anita! Hope the transition to back to school for the kids has been a smooth one:). I looooove how you used the die cut feathers in your design- I agree this would make a fab masculine card! I might have to add that die to my wish list! And your wreaths are wonderful!!!! Fall is my fave decorating season! Love how you used the burlap and the wooden word!
