Warm Smiles

Hello crafty reader!  This week started with rain... that will definitely change how the leaves turn colors.  Bummer.

Anyway for today's card, I played with this Basic Grey sticker sheet I bought in Big Lots of $1:

I rarely use stickers in my cards anymore.  So I thought this would be something different.  I intend to use every piece in this sheet for a good batch of cards.  Here's the first one:

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Wassau, leftovers
image/sentiment:  unknown/RAKed
tools:  Janome Sew Mini
embellishments:  sticker (Basic Grey), flowers (Prima), brads (American Crafts)
adhesive:  Scotch

Five more days until I raffle out these goodies as kick-off for World Card Making Day on October 1st:

If you leave a comment on my blog everyday from today, that will give you 5 entries.

And for some more update, my blog candies for next month are all ready.  What do you think about an EK Success Dimensional Flower Punch, card-making embellishments and stamp sets from Unity, Hampton Art, Inkadinkado and Autumn Leaves to name a few?  Also, I'll be teaming up with a good crafty friend Claire of Kleir's Kreation, who will also be giving away yummy blog candy.

'Til next blog!

Beautiful card Joan, really great, and you´ve found this cool burned color like real fall leaves has. It´s really cool, and I like how simple you kept it and yet it shows a lot.
WAUW that sounds like a lot of great goodies. I sure hope, >I´ll be able to join you throug the entire month here.
Have a wonderful week ahead hun and lots of fun.

What a lovely card, Joan!
I like how you used the sticker, I don´t know how to use them sometimes...
I love the stitching! How do you do for not breaking the paper? Any special technique or tool? Could you please teach me???

So cute. I have this same sticker sheet and you have given me some great inspiration on how to use it.
Thanks so much for that.
