We are having a very mild Autumn so far in the Rockies and the weather is just beautiful :)

Muse Challenge #188

I made this card for challenge #188 at the Muse Card Club this week.  The feather dies are from Simon Says stamp, the circle die from My Favorite Things and the sentiments from Technique Tuesday.  Three different stamp companies and it all fit together so nicely.  I was inspired by this pretty card from Jenni Murray:

Thanks for stopping by, spread your wings :)

don't be scared....

It's Monster time of year and this little fluffy Gustav monster from Useless Trinkets is one of my favorites.  I colored Gustav with my Zig fluorescent markers and am entering this card in this week's challenge at Casology, which just happens to be Coffee.

So happy you stopped by today, enjoy a nice, hot cup of coffee :)

Inspired by all the little things

I discovered a card inspiration site that's new to me called Inspired by all the Little Things.  There are so many wonderful card makers in blog land that inspire me, and I'm so happy to have found this blog.

Here is the inspiration photo:
My inspiration came from the gourds and pumpkins in the photo.  Autumn is my favorite time of year and the stamp I used from Pink Ink fit this weeks inspiration photo well, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by today.  Autumn, ahhhh :)

Spiders, ahhhhhhh noooo.....

This week's challenge at Less Is More is a Theme challenge - spiders or insects.  Spiders and I are not friends.  I have always been frightened by spiders, as irrational as this is, it's true.  

Last year I won a little set from Mama Elephant and it not only had this cute sentiment but the spiders are cute too.  I know, crazy, cute spiders, ahhhhhh.  So I put the sentiment and spider (3x) to paper and made this CAS card for the challenge.  I drew the spider web dots.

So glad you stopped by today.
Halloween is right around the corner and spiders and other creatures will be out in force :)

Is that a Unicorn?

The challenge at City Crafter this week is "Did I make you Up?".  Marina ask everyone to make a card or project that may not really exist e.g. a monster or a mermaid or any mythological creature. I recently received a birthday gift from Simon Says Stamp, this sweet little Unicorn stamp set and was happy to put ink to the stamps for this challenge.

I used my Zig markers (just love, love, love them) to color the unicorn and the cupcake.  Put a little glossy accents on the mane and tail and the cupcake frosting. 

Wishing you a magical Day!!

Autumn Birthday Card

The challenge at Fusion Card Challenge this week is called "chairs to you" (see the photo below).  I made my card using only the sketch this week and put my leaves on the opposite side of the card.

We celebrate a number of birthdays in October and I made this card for one of my friends who has a birthday next week.

Autumn is in the air

The challenge at Just Us Girls is Leaves this week.  I chose to use a pretty leaf paper as background and one of the leaves from a 3-leaf stamp I use every Autumn.  The thank you die is from Penny Black.

The leaf on my card is covered in Ranger glossy accents crackle, here's a close up:

I was so excited when I discovered the crackle and love the way it looks on leaves.  I know this wonderful item will be used a lot in the next few weeks.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy this wonderful time of year :)
