Enjoying a couple of hours in my craft room

After mopping the dog's room, washing the dogs, fixing breakfast, and doing some errands, I finally had a couple of hours to spend in my craft room.
I made two cards:
The first is a flip card, amde using all Gina K Design Products. I was feeling a bit fall today. I submitted it to the STV13MON34 challenge at
The ribbon is from May Arts.

The second card uses The Moroccan Sizzix Embossing Folders and the Label Tags from Spellbinders. The card stock is again fired brick, over Kraft that I distressed with Fired brick DI.
The ribbon is new from Gina K, to go with the Merlot set. It is a cool cherry-chocolate color.
The sentiment is also Gina K. I dont know what the scrap of green card stock is. I just liked its feel with the card. Something in my stash.
I may get to sneak back out there after dinner, but we shall have to see! Have a great Holilday weekend!

Last two days of my vacation.

Sure, I have household chores to do, but I needed to do some work in my craft room to find some peace. The first 2 cards were by requirement, a friend who has had a recurrence of her breast cancer, and another who lost her stepfather this last week. Hopefully they will find some comfort and strength.
Sentiment from Gina K dp from stash, 
Church Pop-up is adapted from a template from Peter Dahman. Each window has a "stained glass" mylar created with alcohol inks.
Sentiment from Gina K Cross die cut is from Sizzix, Oval amd Floral oval frame are Spellbinders
Then I felt like a little Halloween play

Die cut is Spellbinders Fancy Labels 8, witch image is from Gina K. Witch's Brew stamp was from Studio G. . Ghost charm was made using shrink plastic and the Sizzix Ghosts 2 Die.
Pumpkin is a Sizzix die cut, I cut it from grunge board, then from Shrink Plastic to make the charm
Sentiment and stamped images are  Gina K. Cheery Lyn provides the flourish die and spellbinders Fancy Labels 8 was used for the Sentiment. Card stock is moonlit fog from Gina K.

Finally, I found out some fabulous news from my niece and her husband. They are expecting their first "bunny" in the oven. I sure love my House Mouse stamps for this!

House Mouse Seed Spitter, sentiment (Stately Flowers 7) and  dp (Parisian Garden) from GIna K die cut for sentiment is again Spellbinders Fancy Labels 8. The watermelon stamp is new to my collection (Repeat Impressions).
That's all for tonight folks!
