Happy Harvest!

Yes, I know... Those of you who are enjoying this sweltering Texas heat with me are thinking I'm going crazy... lol  Actually, I'm being optimistic and anticipating the cooler weather of fall coming.  I'm ready for it!

So in that spirit, here is my swap card from the "mini-convention" this past weekend:

I'll be honest -- Tangerine Tango is not my favorite color.  I don't know why that is, but for me, it is very difficult.  Blues go together so much easier!  So I challenged myself to use Tangerine Tango for my swap card.  I added Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade and Old Olive.  The stamps are from Loads of Love Accessories and Lovely as a Tree.  (The leaves on the Tangerine Tango background are stamped in Tangerine Tango also, so they are a little harder to see in the pic.)  I love the Square Lattice and Pindot Embossing Folders, and the corner rounder and Eyelet Border punches added a little extra, too.

Happy Harvest -- hopefully soon! lol


  1. I love the patchwork-look of this card!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower of yours. :)

  2. Sarah I think you did great with the tangerine tango and you've made such a lovely card. I like how you mixed the stamping squares with the textured squares. So nice. I also think the early espresso works so nice with the tangerine tango. I was never fond of orange but it's been growing on me with the pumpkin pie and peach parfait, so tangerine tango is next on my list to tackle too! Great job.
