PTI August Blog Hop

This month's hop is all about fall textures.  I LOVE fall!  Here's my attempt at recreating some of those textures.  I used the Simple Stripes IP for "corduroy", and a bit of rippled felt.  My kids always think Kraft cardstock looks hairy, so there you go!

Grandma's boys

Two more boy cards for Grandma.  There is another, but apparently I forgot to take a picture of it.  It's a good one, trust me! :)

I am loving this frame!  So versatile!
Broke out my animals for this one.  Love these.

Grandma's cards-Girl

Here is another card in the Grandma's birthday stash.  Grandma has 29 grandchildren--11 girls and 18 boys.  No, I'm not kidding.

I reversed the Swiss Dots-embossed panel, and I like it.  I also saved another paper cutting step by flipping the inside frame upside down so the white would show instead of the pattern.

Have a Blast

It's that time of year again when I make all of the birthday cards for my mother-in-law to give to her grandkids.  Here's one of the contenders:
