such a perfect day




Fall inspired cards are definitely one of my favorites!

I was in a local scrapbooking shop that is closing up shop.  I picked up some of the Carta Bella Perfect Autumn collection:

paper:  carta bella/perfect autumn  stickers: carta bella/perfect autumn  other: mft die, melissa frances german glass glitter, stampin' up veneer

See that wooden element?  It's from Stampin' Up that I covered in German Glass Glitter..um yeah, love that stuff.  Anywho's their veneer comes in plastic containers {yes to great storage!} in sets of 36 pieces for $4.95, can't beat that!

Last week I played along with the Fusion inspiration photo, this week I'm taking the sketch on:


I absolutely ADORE the color trio over at



Thanks for poppin' by!

  16. Great card Amy! I hate to hear of another scrapbooking store closing up shop though. We have lost all of the small independently owned ones in our area and all I have left is Hobby Lobby. Just makes me sad!
