Nacho Average Stampers- shoebox swap

Wow! Let me first apologize for being absent. I do not know where the week went. And I had every intention of posting this on Thursday evening.

The Nacho Average Stampers group that I belong to, meets the fourth Friday of each month. And we do shoe box swaps, card challenges, or stamp camps. This month, it was a shoe box swap. The guidelines were simple: create a full card, either Halloween/Fall themed, and everything to create your card fits in a shoebox. So, here is my card. I wanted to create something that didn't require a million $ in product. Use a stamp set, that I am sure almost everyone has. Make it easy enough that a beginner can do, but interesting enough that a seasoned stamper won't be bored. I think that I did that!
If you don't have the greeting stamp set, use what you have and adjust the oval accordingly. The oval was made with the ovals die that can be found in the back of the big catalog. Also, I used the new 'sanded' background stamp. If you do not have a catalog and would like one, just place a $25 minimum order with me (on line, email, or phone) and I will send you a free catalog. On-line, 24 hour shopping @
cardstock: pear pizzazz, very vanilla, and always artichoke
ink: pear pizzazz, always artichoke, soft suede, (for the leaf) peach parfait, cajun craze, and wild wasabi.
misc: early espresso satin ribbon, and vintage trinckets (tiny safety pin).
Thank you for looking, and stay tuned! My Sunday Advanced Card Club meets tomorrow, and I will post their cards this weekend! (Most likely early Sunday morning!) And, you will be glad you came back. Enjoy your weekend, and remember, take time out of your busy schedule to create something wonderful! (paper crafting is always wonderful, but cooking, sewing, gardening, and other hobbies count!)
