Reverse Confetti- SFYTT

Good evening- hope you had a wonderful day!! We've had great weather the last couple of days- cool in the morning but, warm by the afternoon---- anything to put off winter for a little bit longer ;)

Anywho.... I wanted to play with the Reverse Confetti SFYTT sketch this month and Sammy Squirrel, from RC's Quirky Cuties line, hadn't seen any love at my house so....


Flip the sketch 90 degrees to the left and imagine that circle element grew!! That's it... now you see.
Isn't he sweet and oh, the bowtie is adorable!!!

Autumn- Viva la Verve sketch!!

Okay.... worked on this card a while ago for the Viva la Verve Week 1 sketch and the Fall Fantasy Inspiration challenge... well, I missed the Inspiration challenge but, I still had fun!!



Used some older Verve sets... Harvest Blessings and Autumn Splendor (retired, I think). The leaves from Harvest Blessings were stamped on Fancy Pants True Friend patterned paper and fussy cut.... took a little liberty with the sketch. The sentiment and outlines leaves are Verve's Autumns Splendor.


Things have been busy around here (and, it's not even "lake" season- on top of that we're into the holiday season!!!)

with all my....

Happy Sunday!! Hope yours is going well. We have the crockpot going for supper which gave me an opportunity to make this sweet tag.

I used MFT's tag dies, Simon Says Stamp "with all my heart" die, and Lil Inkers stitched hearts.

My inspiration came from this week's Tag You're It challenge. Also, playing along with Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge.... Anything Goes!!

CTD #315- Grateful!!

Good Morning... it's Wednesday and time for the new Color Throwdown colors!! This week Jodi is bringing us these fantastic colors!!


Isn't that image wonderful.... love those white pumpkins, well I guess they aren't totally white!


I wanted to play with pumpkins, like the inspiration picture, so I pulled out my Verve set Bountiful Harvest. The pumpkins were stamped, lightly colored with two shades of yellow copics and red for the stars. I added some leaves with Verve's Sprightly Sprigs die, die cut a circle for the sentiment to nestle in and finished with a twine bow and stars in the corner.
