Happy World Card Making Day!

Can you believe it is October already!!!  I didn't get a chance to make a card today but I finally have time to update my blog.  The last week has been a little birthday, finishing class samples, teaching classes and I started a new job.  First of all here are the crafting goodies I got for my birthday.
I have to say I got spoiled on my birthday.  My wonderful hubby got me copics, watercolors, pastels, graphitents, blender pencils and watercolor paper.  My brother & sister in law (and the kids) got me the three cricut cartridges.  I also got some wonderful presents from other family members that are absolutely lovely but not crafting supplies.

One other thing my wonderful hubby got me is another marker rack for my desk, so I could organize things a bit better.  I love the new set up and everything is much easier to find now.

I have to post this card as well.  I made this last month for my hubby's (Pete's) birthday and I forgot to post it.   I'm going to post it now before I forget yet again.  I'm sorry I don't know the name of the gold panner stamp the only info on the side of the stamp is "good stamps stamp goods".  The stamp was given to me by a friend. I colored it with copics and the patterned paper is from the cosmo cricket 6x6 "wanted" paper pad.

Here is the fourth card for my Let It Snow, Man! class. This is the first time I've made a stair step card (I've only made side step cards before)  I really had fun with this card.  All the shapes were cut out on the cricut.  The snowman is from the doodlecharms cartridge and the trees and house are from the Christmas solutions cartridge. I used double sided tape and green glitter on the trees.  I colored the house with watercolor pencils.

Now I'm going to update my last post as promised and post my October classes on my schedule page. Also I'm trying to come up with a new challenge for myself and I think it must include patterned paper in some way.  I have way to much and need to start using it LOL!!!  Until next time have a great weekend and happy crafting everyone.
