Harvest Sunset Pumpkin Diorama Box Card & Sunflower & Butterflies

Hey there crafty gals and guys!
It's that time of year again!!!
Yes, I feel the cool brisk air in the early morning now and it's time
for all those pretty leaves to fall all over my backyard. And guess
who gets to rake them up?? Yep, it's me :) I really love the Fall with all
the Pumpkins and the smell of cinnamon brewing in the kitchen.
Fun time of year for sure!

I would like to share this gorgeous Pumpkin diorama box card that I made.

This darling box card is from Mary's "Harvest Sunset kit"
This was all cut out with 8.5" x 11" papers on my Sizzix Eclips cutting
machine and eCal software. I love this machine because its so fun and easy to
 use and cuts perfectly every time.

I inked around the edges of the pumpkin with Tim Holtz inks and embossed the
sides of the box and back with a tiny leaf folder by The Paper Studio. 
This card folds flat for mailing and would make
a very unique card to send to family or a special friend.
Love love this card!!!

This is Mary's picture of her super fabulous box card.
Take a look at the complete kit below!

This is a Must have kit for any true crafter!
Look at that large pumpkin!!! It's sooo perfect and the wagon
is adorable!
I'll be crafting them all soon for sure.

Next up is this Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous Sunflower and Butterfly.

Yes this Sunflower is also included in the Harvest Sunset kit!
I bet you think, wow what a lot of work this was, but actually it
was sooo simple and quick to make. Unlike flowers that you have
to glue each petal on, this one is unique for it has only three
full circles of petals that are attached already. The middle is quite easy to
assemble with Mary's tutorial. The fun part was mixing all the pretty
glitters around the center. Just add tacky glue and sprinkle as many layers
as you like. Small, chunky or fine glitter and any colors will do.
This is a WOW Sunflower when you finish.
Great for a table display or
watch Mary's video to make it into this beautiful wreath for your door.

This is Mary's Sunflower attached to her pretty bag. Yes the bag
is also included in her kit.

The Butterfly I added to my Sunflower is
from Mary's "Breezy Meadow Butterflies"

This is the whole collection of Butterflies.
I've made many of these into magnets or with clips.

The egg box is so fun and looks so real!
Love all the canning labels and the seed pocket card is adorable.

Think of all the happy people that would love to receive these unique
handmade gifts. :)  
A must kit for any crafter! 

 This is Bird's sample card with the matching envelope.
Darling cutout Chicken envelope!

Today I would like to share these adorable Chicken cards
from Bird's "Nature's Bounty svg collection" that I made. 
So fun and easy to make these darling cards and you can
switch out colors and patterned papers for a totally different look.
I chose black and white dots with red for my color scheme and love it.
I just happened to have the rolling pin sticker and thought
it looked cute on the nest. I stamped the sentiment from Mary's stamp collection.

I was inspired to make these Chicken cards because, when I was small we
had a Chicken named Betsy Lou. Everyday like clockwork she would peck
on the window or start clucking really loud. We had a
chair ready with her pillow on it so when we opened the window, she knew
right where to sit to lay her egg. She always left us a large beautiful brown egg and when
she was ready to go, she would slip quietly out the back window.
It was so much fun to collect her warm eggs and oh my, were they delicious.
We didn't live on a farm, but we had many farm animals.

I remember one time when we went to Farmers Market in Los Angeles for lunch.
It was near Easter and they had all the chickens, lambs and goats there. Well,
you know which one I eyed, was the darling baby goats. I thought I had
talked my mom into getting this little one until my Dad arrived. He said, ok
it's either the goat or me and finished lunch and left.
Well....what can I really wanted the tiny cute baby goat and
my mom was so easy to convince without my dad there that I kept begging.

Soooo we arrived home with this sweet baby tiny goat.  Boy, when my dad got
home, he hit the roof. He said, you know we don't live on a farm and
have no pasture for a goat to run in and it will get BIG.
My dad calmed down after he started petting the goat and asked me
what I was going to name her. haha

Well, we kept Molly in the garage at night and in the morning I would take her out in
our small backyard. After she went potty, I brought her in for a few minutes to play. We
had stairs and boy did she like to run up them, but coming down was another thing. lol

We had lots of fun, but when she started to grow horns and buck our glass door, it
was time to think of a better home for her.

My father checked around and found a farm that would take her for a pet. It was a big farm
and the day that we arrived, it was a sad but happy day. The farmer said he
would be happy to have Molly join his goats that were family pets and she would be
loved and well cared for. We hugged her goodbye with tears in our eyes, but I think my dad
was happy, for I didn't see tears in his eyes. :)  When it was time to go, we drove out the long fenced driveway and she followed us all the way to the end of the fence.
 I'll always remember her sweet little face and happy times and also
 know that she got a great home to grow up in.
Sweet memories!
