Holy Guacamole!...

...I am the September (and very first!) Guest Designer for AVOCADO ARTS!

{{{please scroll down for my Bellariffic Friday post- thanks!}}}

I am very pleased to be amongst a very lovely and talented group of women, both on the Design Team and the ladies who work hard behind the scenes, too, to bring you guys monthly clear stamp kits that are of EXCELLENT quality and a really great price, too!

Check out their September kit, "Thankful For You":

Each month, Avocado Arts releases a new 4x6 kit of clear stamps.  There are NO membership fees, and you can cancel or skip a month as long as you do it by the 23rd of the month before (you'll have plenty of time to decide if yo want the next month's kit or not by then :)

I adore the Fall images in this kit and how they're so versatile and work w/ one another so well.  I had a blast creating my first two projects for you today:

These little pumpkins are SOOO sweet and awesome to color or paper piece, perhaps?  I love the sentiments too- they are the PERFECT size and such a great array of them in the kits.
...and how cute is this itsy-bitsy spider?  I've never met a spider I liked until her, actually...complete w/ her adorable eyelashes :)  I had a BLAST taking the spider web from the kit and incorporating it into this old SU paper.  I added some Stickles and my kids are all fighting over who gets this card, LOL!  Guess I'd better get back to work!

Be sure to check out the Avocado Arts BLOG for more on my September guest spot as I'll be back with more in a few days, yay!  What's more?  I hope you'll check out the rest of the Pit Crew's blogs and check out the recent days' posts with even more inspiring projects!  These ladies are so talented:




Didn't I say I was in GOOD company?   Last but not least, be sure to "like" them on Facebook, and join me in their cause to support Childhood Cancer awareness this month with another beautiful set "Give Good".  I just got this set and it's even more meaningful that I can say- and it's even prettier in person!

Thank you SO much for coming out today to support me and I really hope you'll go check out Avocado Arts if you're new to them!   You will love them!
