Such cute things! I just love them!

The cards are so beautiful that they should be framed! I have stared at them over and over again and I just love them. I have to admit that my absolute favorite item of the day are those acorn tags. I love everything about them. Was this a particular stamp for the wording in the background? I love stamps with words (yes, I'm a dork) and the way you layered this one with the acorn...add to that those buttons. I have a thing for buttons. Okay, I'm starting to sound psychotic. LOL.

Love,Love, Love the pumpkin card with the black elegant.

Deb said...

I like all of your card designs, however I absolutely love the acorn tags! They are so neat!
As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short on my paper crafting. I do have motivation though. Today is my sister's birthday, and I also want to make something special for my nurse manager for "Bosses Day". With a short nap and a burst of inspiration, I may get something done!

Thank you for sharing your cards with us. I've never made a card before, but with your step by step instructions to such a pretty card, I intend to. In fact, I'm going out this morning to get the stuff! :)

Those acorn tags...drool...the buttons are phenomenal--are they real or printed?

So pretty, Kelli! So is the scalloped circle cut with decorative-edged scissors? I had thought maybe it was a paper punch.

And I am so excited to learn I won last week's give-away! I'll get an e-mail to you right away. Thank you!
