A Very Productive Weekend

I have several things that I could have shown for my SMT post for the Sassy Cheryls Blog challenge, but I feared that it would have been one of the longest posts on records, and you know I'm already long winded enough.

I am so in love with my Silhouette Cameo, it makes creating multiple cards so much easier and faster. I'm all about both of these when making OWH cards. So the following are the cards I made Friday and Saturday. This is a picture of my little niche with my computer, printer and my Cameo. I don't even have to get out of my chair, which is not necessarily a good thing.

This is a card I CASED from the latest issue of Paper Creations. The papers feathers are all from my scrap box. The papers for the eyes are from the patterns in the Silhouette Design Studio software.I made 6 of these.

 This Card was inspired from a sketch from Clean and Simple. I used the Silhouette Print and Cut for the paper colors. The floral cutout was from a free card from Shery K Designs. I made 6 of these.

This card was also CASED from a tag creation I saw on  The leaves are from the Silhouette Store. I can't remember what digital designer to thank for these papers. I made 6 of these. and that finished me for Saturday.

On Sunday, I hit the ground running and spent the whole day in TM.

This was my first card of the day. The scarecrow and the fence are from Just So Scrappy Too's Happy Fall Y'all Kit.I traced them and cut them out with my Cameo. The papers are from Just So Scrappy Too's Fall Breeze Kit. I made 8 of these.

For my second card of the day, I used the same papers Fall Breeze, and the pumpkins and wheelbarrow from  the Happy Fall Y'all Kit. I made 6 of these.

My final card of the day was my challenge card for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog that I blogged yesterday.

When I left TM Sunday night at 6 p.m. this is the way my table top looked.

This morning I was back in TM to create more Fall cards for the OWH deadline. This card started out going great guns, but I got called away from the house for an hour, and then coloring the images slowed me down, but I got 6 made. The papers for this one are from Shery K Designs Fall kit, and the image is one of Sassy Cheryl's new ones in the STORE. She's Called Sally Swings. The coloring took 3 times longer than the assembly of the card.

This is a picture of my weekend's work.

I've got DH working on a project that I'll have to post for next week I guess.
