Classy Cards N Such - Fall Picnic

This week's challenge at Classy Cards N Such called for a card with Fall colors.  I must say I really love the warm colors associated with Fall.  In fact, Fall is my favorite season  of the year.  God paints our trees in many beautiful colors for us to enjoy.  The leaves seem to have changed a little early, but I believe that has to do with the rain we have gotten recently.  Here is the inspiration picture that Classy Cards N Such provided for us.

You can find all the details and products I used on my card here.   The products used may be found here.   Use the code Shirley-10 for a discount.

Thank you for taking a look at my card today.

Classy Cards N Such - Not Too Shabby Christmas

Here is a card I made for Classy Cards N Such.  I wanted to give my card a shabby look so I used scrap burlap that was already laying on my craft table and planned my card around it.  The pine cones were sent to me by a friend who picked them up while she was out for her daily walk.  Aren't they cute?

Thank you for taking a look at my  blog today.

Speedy Fox and Friends - Torn Paper

The Speedy Fox  and Friends challenge for today is to use torn paper on our cards.   I started off making my card look like candy corn.  That went well until  I decided to sponge my white paper, with pumpkin pie ink, which made it look less like candy corn.  I used the animals from Mark's Finest Paper stamp set "News From the Woods".   The sentiments are from the MFP stamp set "What a Scream".  I think if I saw these little creatures peeking at me, I would let them have my bag of candy.  :)

Thank you, for stopping in today.  Come back soon.

Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge - Vintage Girls

The Speedy TV Inspiration challenge that posted today is titled Vintage Girls.  I love the vintage inspiration pictures for today.  

I was inspired by the third picture with the pretty daffodil with the yellow and brown colors.  I chose to use a Mark's Finest Paper stamp called "Daffodil" for my card.  Both the daffodil and the butterfly are from this stamp set.   I used Authentique papers and tied the card up with twine.  Here is my card:

Classy Cards N Such - Polka Dot Christmas

The challenge for Classy Cards N Such is to make a polka dot Christmas card and use colors from their inspiration picture.  This is one of my favorite Christmas cards that I have made this year.  Maybe it is because of the bright colors, the swag, the hearts, the dots, the bows or the image.  I love all of these things and getting them all on one card is what made me like it so much.

I hope you will join us for the challenge this week.  We love seeing your cards.

I am happy you stopped in to take a look at my card.
