play along with CAS(E) Thia Sketch.

It would be a good one to mass produce.

I used a Cherry Lynn Die ( lamp post)
and A Lawn Fawn Die (wreath).
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp ( Merry Everything)

Hi !
Time for a new code word from Addicted To Clean and Simple.
This weeks challenge is hosted by Bobby
 and she chose the code word PUMPKINS.

 Here's my card:

I chose two shades of neutral beige cardstock
and started by using Distress Ink (gathered twigs) and a stencil from
My Favorite things to create a light partial background.

Next I stamped, colored with copics and fussy cut images of a corn stalk,
a wagon full of pumpkins and a separate pumpkin  all from 
Lawn Fawn ( Happy Harvest). 
The greeting is also from Lawn Fawn (Jump for Joy).

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. It was really hard
 not to put a bunch of colorful leaves all over!

Little Drac

Today I'm entering the Color Throwdown Challenge.

Orange, kraft and black...  great colors for October!
Here's what I came up with:
 Pretty simple, but I fell in love with that cute little Dracula!
He's a  little Snag'em Stamp from Imaginisce.
I also used the Halloweenies stamp set from Paper Smooches
and the Stitched Circles die from Simon Says Stamp,
Memento Ink, copic marker R29 and 3D foam dots.
Making all these Halloween cards is making me hungry for chocolate candy!  lol!

Today I made a card to play along with 

Here's my card:

I stamped the really cute stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle with VersaMark
and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.
Then I used post it notes to mask off everything outside the circle.
Next I used Mustard Seed and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks
to sponge in the circle.
The sentiment is from a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp set called Dragon Queen.

Thanks for stopping by.

National Cardmaking Day

For the last two days I've attended the
Stamp & Scrapbook Convention in Akron 
where I pretty much walked, shopped and cropped myself silly!
So today I'm taking it easy and spending some quiet time in my craft room.
The days are flying by so quickly that I thought 
I'd better work on this years
Christmas Cards. 
Here's what I'm working on:

and the inside:
I used 3 stamp sets:
My Favorite Things - Jingle All The Way
My Favorite Things - A'la Modes ( Candy Cane Kisses)
Lawn Fawn - Merry Messages

Got lots of them to make, so I'd better get back to work! 

Thanks for stopping by.
