My room's a mess, but I'm happy! :D

There's no telling from one day to the next on how I'm going to feel! Sleep is a real crapshoot, and even on nights when I get a fairly good night's rest, that's no guarantee I'm going to not feel bone-tired the next day. *sigh* But what can you do? Simply carry on, that's what! So that's what I do!!! I started these cards on Monday I believe, and finished them up this afternoon. I wanted to use my new Lawn Fawn set Sweater Weather before I got started on my Christmas cards. I'd really like to make more cards, more often, to send out to my friends who need a little lovin' via the mail! :D

These two I turned into shaker cards. The first one (above) I used glitter that was too fine for shaker cards, and fall colored Flower Soft which didn't "move" very well. Still, I love it! The one below, I used heavier glass glitter and that worked out better. Now...if I can remember that for the next round of shaker cards I make, lol! The DSP I used I've had at least a year, and I'm finally now using it. I usually get real productive just before we move!!!

These two I got out my Lawn Fawn dies again because I really love the look of that layout! Have to be careful and not overdue it though!! My Big Shot really got a workout with these four cards, and I don't see any "vacation" for it anytime soon. I have soooo many new toys to use, and sooooo many Christmas cards yet to make! It was nice making fall themed cards first though.

And last, but not least...I give you some photos of Emmett!
His "monster" Halloween costume!

Just LOVE those little "piggies" and his round, baldy head! :D

Hopefully I will be back SOON, with some Christmas cards!!! I also want to make some holiday decorations this year too! *fingers crossed!*

Beautiful! (The cards AND the baby!) I love shaker cards but always get too frustrated with them. Yours look amazing! Some of that paper lives in my craft room, too! Love it--Autumn is my season!
