Thanksgiving's On Its Way.....

Happy Hellos Everyone:

Dare I say, 'I have a brief post for you today.' I wanted to share with you a card I CASed earlier today. I thought this was a perfect card to send to someone for the Thanksgiving holiday. The colors I selected looked to be the colors one would associated with Halloween, but it's working or me. This patterned paper is a favorite of mine from Basic Grey.

Okay on with the card... I stamped a small pieced of paper with my SU 'Give Thanks' stamp before embossing it with my Cuttlebug. I cut four pieces of DP (three into three-strip panels) to created the center and raised them with dimenissionals; a top note was used to finish off the bottom of the card; and applied a ribbon treatment. There's just something about simplicity I love.

Thanks or stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

Play Date Cafe Anniversary Challenge

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I know. It's been a while. If you have read any of my last few post, you know where I have been.

It's been a while since I participated in a challenge. To telly the truth, I hadn't planned on posting today, let alone create a card for a challenge. However, I recieved an e-mail message from Luana over at WanabuggcWanabuggcreations. Thanks Luana!!!

So, as tired as I have been lately, I decided to  join in the fun in this week's challenge over at PDCC. PDCC was one o the first blog challenges I participated in since I created my blog. The folks over at PDCC totally inspired to dabble when it comes to color combinations.

Congratulations PDCC!!!

Thanks or taking time to visit me here at The Peddler's Gallery. Come back real soon.

Candied Apples

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope all is well with you and I hope that your weekend has  kicked-off to a wonderful start. Between football practices and games and working on my Christmas cards, I haven't had much of an opportunity to do any posting. However, I have mangaged to carve out a few moments for the little people in my life. I decided to do something that I haven't done in the past. I decided to make each of them a card for Halloween. I  have four little people in my life so, I made a card for each one of them. Funny thing was, I couldn't find the forth card as I was gathering the cards to photograph them. Of course I found the card an hour after the picture was taken--go figure. It was so much fun making the cards and before you say it aloud, I'm already aware. They're a bit guady, perhaps baroque and colorul too. Something told me it okay since all of the little people are under the age of twelve.  I'm to scared to ask you, 'What do you think?' You all might just tell me. :) Well, you better tell me quick . I plan to put a Five and Below gift card in each one of the cards and mail them off sometime next week.

Now, a little something about the cards--The purple cardstock was cut out using Spellbinders. I layered two additional smaller circles on top of the cardstock using DP.  The candied apples were colored with COPICS and enhanced with a touch of stickle, then topped-off with ribbon and a friendly little ghoul. I used MS goo punch too. 

Before I sign-off ....
I wanted to acknowledge a few new Followers have joined The Peddler's Gallery. I am so happy to know that you are interested as to what goes on at the gallery. I hope to inspire you as much as you are an inspiration to me.  Having said that, I am inspired to have a small give-a-way for (my) FOLLOWERS ONLY. I'm looking forward to having a big give-a-way in February to celebrate my blogoversary, but in the meantime I'm giving away a couple of COPICS this Sunday just because you inspire me. I have no idea what color of COPICs I'll give away because I will not pick them up until later on this weekend--after the football game no doubt. There's no need to send me an e-mail. I'll have my son draw a name and I'll post it on Sunday.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by The Peddler's Gallery. Come back real soon.

Snowflakes Are Falling at the Gallery

Happy Hellos All:

I hope your weekend was nothing but wonderful. I had another opportunity to hangout with the lovely ladies of NYC&Me this weekend. (Looking forward to next month ladies :) There was plenty of scrapping and cardmaking going on. Everyone's projects were great and inspiring. To no suprise of my own, I didn't make many cards on Saturday; however, I managed to complete a lot o prep work for some Christmas cards I'm working on. Without further ado, here's one of the cards I managed to finished...

Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery.
Be sure to stop by tomorrow to view a fun card I made or Halloween.

Leaves, Leaves, Leaves


I hope you weekend has kicked off on the right foot. Mine did. I'm looking forward to getting together with a group o scrapping/card making ladies I met this past summer, but before I do, I wanted to share this card with you.

I CAS this card a couple weeks back from a local scrapbooking store. I think the card in the store looked much better than my version, but I hope to try this again before the season expires.

I used my Spellbinder leaves to achieve the images and outlined the leaves with a white gel pen. I separated the top cardstock from the bottom cardstock with SU dimenisionals and glued bottons in between. I topped the card off with ribbon. I'm not sure what I'll used this card for, but it will be here when I need it.

Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery! Come back real soon.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Happy Hellos Everyone:

It's me! I haven't fallen off of the earth or anything like that. All I can say is "football." By the time I get home I'm exhausted. I do get a moment every now and I again to surf the net. Well, I was out on SCS a couple of days ago when I discovered a challenge hosted by Lori aka Stamp_Momma. Lorie's challenge was to create a card using the pink and brown with a breast cancer theme. After uploading the card to compete in the challenge, participants are encouraged to send their cards to the address below:

The Department of Volunteer Services – Unit 115
Attn: Maggi Suttles
UT MD Anderson Cancer Center
1515 Holcombe Boulevard
Houston, TX 77030

I really wish you could see this card in person. My camera didn't do the colors in the photo any justice. Just take it from me when I tell you the colors are absolutely beautiful in person. Let me also tell you, this stamp has become one of my favorites from Hero Arts. I never thought it would be used just for the Christmas holidays, but it wasn't until I got it home that I discovered so many more uses for this stamp. All I can say is, 'Just don't be suprise if you see that I have use this stamp on another card any time soon.' I just love it, love it, love it!!! Hope you do too.
