Speedy Fox - Add a Tea Bag Holder

For the Speedy Fox challenge this week, we are to add a tea bag holder to our cards or projects.
I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamp set called "Relax a Bit".    I used my tag topper punch to make my tea bag holder.  I hope you can find time to join us for the challenge this week.

Hope You Can Cling To - Two By Two

Here is a card I made for the Hope You Can Cling to challenge two by two.  These HYCCT challenges are for the whole month of October - Breast Cancer Awareness month.  We are sending our cards to M.D. Anderson hospital for families to give to the patients.

Lucky Day Snowman

 The WT challenge today was to use two types embossing on our cards. This embossed (two ways) piece of card stock has been in a bin on my craft table since last Christmas. I knew I would find a use for it and today is my lucky day. I added the snowman and gems. Viola, my card is done. (and at an early hour in the day) :)

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.
