Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 38 Awesome Autumn

I decided to make one more card for the Lawn Fawnatics Awesome Autumn Challenge and went for the clean and simple look on this cute Thanksgiving card.

I was inspired by all the acorns in this picture:

So I am entering the card also in Laurel Seabrook's fun Inspired By Fall Beauty Challenge. She runs the most fun and inspiring challenges and every week it is on my list to enter. I think I entered last week too, so yay me! Two weeks in a row. It is fun to make a twofer card (card I can enter in two challenges)

Thant is it for tonight....back to work tomorrow. I hope to craft this week if not too tired. I have not even started my Halloween cards.

I Lava You Izzy

 I feel like I am finally getting my creative juices flowing again and the desire to create has returned so I am on a roll and enjoying the process. I made this card for my littlest grand who is no longer a baby....7 year old Izzy. I like to send Izzy and her sister goodie boxes with surprises for them. I made this card to go in the latest package. I used this fun sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

That is about it for now....I am going to go watch the third period of the hockey game....AND my team is winning. YAY!!

Taco 'Bout Amazing

I am really loving my new Doodlebug collection....So Much Pun. I bought this collection expressly for the purpose of card making. It makes the cutest, most fun cards in now time at all. Of course it helps to have an awesome sketch like this one from Sketch-n-Scrap:

I am entering my card in their sketch challenge. You can see all the details HERE. You have until the end of the month....why don't you make a card???

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 405

Good Morning! I am just popping in to share a card that I created using the MFT 405 Sketch. I love all the MFT products....they make it so easy to put a card together quickly and easily. The die cuts and stencil I used on  the above card are both from My Favorite Things. I used the sketch:

That is about it for now...have a wonderful Tuesday.

Give Thanks

Unfortunately for me, World Card Making Day happened on a very busy Saturday (we had appointments at the nail salon, eye glass place, meeting buyers and selling items on Marketplace, grocery shopping and all kinds of other busy-ness kept me out of my creative space until late yesterday afternoon. I got one card finished and this card almost finished before the hockey game came on (so happy it is hockey season). I finished it up this morning. Don't you love those little Lawn Fawn pilgrim mice??

I am entering this card in the Inspired By Ready For Fall challenge.

I was inspired by the overall theme of the photo. I absolutely LOVE fall. It is my favorite season. Too bad here in Florida we do not have much of an autumn season. Next year I am taking an October trip to the Midwest to get my fall fix.

Thanks for stopping by. My weekend is is off to bed and up early for work tomorrow. But only 17 more months until retirement.

Gone Fishin'

Just to prove that my memory keeping is not just all about the grandkids, I decided to work on a page for my husband's scrapbook documenting the fishing trip we took last year with his dad. His dad caught a TON of fish and was so proud and happy. I do not often have 4 pictures from an event to scrap but since I did this time I used this fun sketch #160 from SketchnScrap:

Well it is a busy day today. I think I will fix myself another iced coffee and tackle my To Do list.

Mistletoe and Holly CFC 208

I am WAY behind on making Christmas cards this year. But I decided that I am not going to stress about it. I will make as many as I can between now and December and will order some photo cards for the rest. It has been a difficult year and unfortunately my motivation to craft just wasn't present for quite awhile. I am starting to feel the desire to create again and that is a good thing.

I must admit this card started out to be entered in the Casual Friday CFC 207 challenge to use mint. I watercolored the background and then did not get the rest of the card finished before the deadline. But I was not going to let a good background go to waste so I was able to re-purpose it for the current CFC 208 Challenge....Use Those Sequins

I also popped up the whole watercolor panel with foam tape so I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Pop It Up Challenge

That is it for now....that 4:30am alarm comes early so I am going to hit the sheets. Thank you for checking out my blog.
