D2D's Autumn Mums

Delightful Inspiration's Autumn Mums is a beautiful set of images
that I received for free for playing the progressive challenge.
Each week that I play and upload my card to D2D I receive another freebie.
check it out you, too, could be a winner every week of a stunning or cute, 
or just plain wonderful image or set.
I picked out the paper, both designs are on one sheet, and then chose the prismacolors
that would match the papers.
The Autumn colors obviously for the Autumn Mums.
Added some silver floss and the only silver button in my collection that was even close to
the best size for that spot.
Thanks for coming by!
There's a huge anything goes at Simon Says Stamps

Canada's Thanksgiving

On October 10 Canada will celebrate their  
is challenging all crafters to make a card using fall colors or thanks or fall colors using pick.
Have you seen the new, updated, gorgeous look at DDCCB?
Jules did a fab job of re-doing the Daisy's blog and it looks so fresh and vibrant.
This was a fun and quick card since the leaf was colored weeks ago 
in anticipation of this fall challenge.
I used the Japanese screw punch to make the two holes,  then thread the twine through and tie on the leaf.
I used two different kraft papers and a leaf border punch.
This card, not counting the coloring of the leaf, took about five minutes, not
exactly my usual card!!!

Falloween kitty

I regretfully admit that I did not play with my digital freebie last week at 
Delightful Inspirations. School Maisie Belle was printed and given a
sentiment but never made the front of a card, but stay tuned, she will get her due.
 (It's been a bit sad around my house for the past week.
God has given us strength to forge ahead and healing has begun for us all.)
With this being the first digital freebie this month it's all mine with out playing last week.
PLUS...I won name that puppy..go see him HERE.
He was a fb contest...I named him Puppy Magic
and WON!!!!!
back to the kitty.........
 I paper pieced using orange mulberry paper. Cut it out not too close to some of the edges.
Wet the edges with an aqua painter and 'shredded' a bit of the edges to look 'furry'.
Then I cut the tail out, the face I cut out of the same paper as the tail and made sure to cut inside the lines for some of that 'fur' to hang out around the kitty like...right?
Debating about sending this over to the Kraft Journal.
There is kraft paper all right, but the theme is 'something grand' in honor of
Grandparent's Day. No grand parents for me, but I definitely could
send this one off to a grand child as a 'grand' gesture.
Thanks for coming by!

the mesh is from Club Scrap, the sentiment is a partial from Festive Favorites at Stampin Up.
distressed stripes er from cuttlebug. papers are bits of this and bits of that.
