Purple and Poppies

This week's challenge at the Fusion Card Challenge is Purple and Poppies.  I was happy to see this challenge as I recently purchased this pretty Penny Black poppy stamp.  I always love red and turquoise together and thought why not add a purple background, Viola!! Love it :)

Here are the sketch and photo from the Fusion blog:

I chose to go with the picture this time.

Glad you stopped by today to view my card :)

Sweet Little Fox

This cute, little fox from Whipper Snapper Designs caught my eye and when I saw this week's sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch I knew I wanted to build my scene around this sweet fox :)

Here's the Sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today.  A nice, crisp Autumn day it is here in Colorado!

Glowing Poppy

While at the craft store I saw a very pretty card using this Penny Black poppy stamp (well, one poppy from the stamp).  So I came home and made my version of the pretty card.

I am going to enter this card into Inkspirational Challenges as the word prompt is "Glow".  The sparkle outline on the poppy and buds are glowing, don't you think?

Glad you stopped by today, I know you can find something to glow about, I did :)

Girls just wanna have fun....

A little while ago a fellow stamper, Debi, sent me a set with some great girlfriend sayings and this Fun phrase was one of the stamps in the set.

The current challenge at AAA Cards is word play, so I am playing with the words on my card and having a lot of fun with this challenge.

So happy you're visiting my blog today, it's raining and the Autumn chill is in the air :)

Wonderful blue birds

I took inspiration for this card from this week's sketch at Case This Sketch.  I took some creative license with the sketch and moved the sentiment closer to the bottom of the card.  

Lately sequence are my favorite embellishments.  I've added all colors of sequence and mini beads to my craft stash and just can't seem to get enough of these little blingy pieces of perfection.

Here's the Sketch:

Glad you stopped by today.  A chill is in the air, Autumn is making it's presence known :)

Autumn is in the Air...

Well, it's for sure - Autumn is in the Air and I couldn't be happier.  Autumn is my favorite time of year, I love the cool air, the beautiful, colorful leaves and the aroma of the season, Yes I do :)

I made this card with 2 challenges in mind:

The Male Room - Theme = Autumn
Simon Says - Anything goes

So happy you stopped by today, enjoy this beautiful season :)

Trick or Treat Bats

Smiling Bats, it doesn't get much cuter than this does it?  All new stamping stuff used for this card today.  The stamp is from Whipper Snapper and the papers are from a new 6X6 pad with dot and stripe papers of different colors.

I took inspiration for this card from the photo challenge at Just Us Girls this week, the yellow and black just shouted Halloween to me, here's the photo:

Thanks for stopping by today, this is the month for all things Halloween!!
