Hope you are having a great Sunday!! Are you busy getting things ready for this week's Thanksgiving Dinner? I have been this weekend. I cut up all my pumpkins and cooked them down to make homemade pies. What was left went into the freezer for making pies for my Christmas dinner. Cleaning, cutting, and cooking the pumpkin takes so long but well worth the trouble. I do not like pumpkin from a can and have been cooking my own pumpkin for I don't know how long. I know I was young because people didn't think I would be doing something at that young of an age. The way I look at it, why was all the pumpkin when you can use it. Even the seeds can be cooked. In these days you have to use everything you can to save money.

Sorry for all the pumpkin talk. Let's get to the challenge for this week. I love autumn so doing this card was easier to do then some of the others. I had a great set of images to use from our sponsor "The Cutting Cafe." This set is called "Harvest Greetings Wreath." With this set you get large wreath images, small wreath images, two pages of sentiments, and pieces of a door for you to make. This is a very big set and the only thing that took me the longest to figure out what sentiment did I want to use. The other stuff was really easy. You will definitely want to have this set for your Autumn cards. On their site right know they have an adorable Turkey Treat Cup Set for you to make. It is so adorable. There is so much stuff in this store that I could not even tell you all of it. I strongly recommend you go and visit it. Then put in a project to win this prize from them.


So, let me show you the card I made with some of the images from this set. 

I wanted it to look like the door was on a log cabin house. I used autumn colors on the sign, door and the wreath. The sentiment was from the set and I just printed it on the orange paper so it would look better then putting white on it. There is a door knob in her set but I just used a black button. So here is the small list of items I used for this card. 

Cardstock -- All From My Stash
Paper -- The Paper Studio
Black Button -- My Stash
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

This was great that I found most of my items in my left over paper and buttons. I don't throw anything away that I think I can use. I actually have a tub of leftover paper. I use it as much as possible. This was a great post for me today. I like the card even though I didn't use a lot of items on it. Usually I make them with a lot of items. So, go over to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and see all of our idea's that we made this week and enter your project.

Hope everyone is having a happy morning. I've been fighting a sinus infection but I get them every time the weather changes. I wish I knew why but this has been happening for years. The only good thing that happen this weekend is that I kept my grand kids for the weekend. They wanted to play with their aunt and uncle more than us. It was nice to just watch them. They grow up to fast. The one funny thing was when we were on our way home they kept talking about banana's. Finally, I did ask them what they were talking about and it was funny. They thought the moon looked like a banana and found it funny. The things they think of and amuse their selves with. 

Let's get to the challenge which I chose to use the dry embossing. I can be honest and say I have not tried wet embossing. It is something that I need to learn though. I was so lucky this week to use and image from Aurorawings. The image is called, "Sea Turtle Kiss." Beautiful little girl underwater with her turtles. I have to honestly say that I have bought many of Mitzi's images. They are beautiful and fun to color. Every once in awhile she will sell one of her new coloring books. Something you may want to watch for. So, Thank You Mitzi for letting me use this beautiful image. Mitzi is giving this to a lucky winner.

Let's see the card that I made with "Sea Turtle Kisses."

See, she is very beautiful. I took some leaves and used glue dots to keep them together to make is look like seaweed. Found these turtles inside a button and took them apart to add some more of them. Then I added the bubbles to make it look like they are breathing coming up. You can't see the background paper that good but it is the same pattern as the embossing on this card. Now let me tell you where I bought everything.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Paper --  K&Company
Embossing Folder -- Cuttlebug
Leaves, Turtles, & Bubbles -- Dress It Up

Colored Pencils

It's hard to say but we are at the end of another post with a new challenge. To read up on the rules in case you may have forgot, just go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and read up on them.

Hello!! Today I am here to reveal 2 of the new 20 Digital Stamps that Robyn's Fetish Stamps and More Store has added. These are absolutely the cutest images for Christmas and Winter. You probably will want to have all of them by the time you get done seeing them. Each of our Design Team members were given two images and some took a couple more to make a variety of projects for you to see with these new images. 

The first image that I used is called "Peppermint." Who doesn't like those little peppermint candies? So, I made a Christmas Wreath with them. The total project is homemade. Here's a picture for you.

Before I begin telling you about it. If you are wanting to do one of these make sure you have a little time to do one. I had the straw wreath for awhile and always wanted to make one of these. The material has peppermints all over it and is from Hobby Lobby. I cut and poked each square into the straw. I made the bow with Christmas Ribbon that had wire on each of the sides. The peppermints that are on the wreath are colored with glitter from Ranger. Then I laminated the peppermints so they wouldn't bend. I loved these peppermints. There were lots of projects I come up with but this was the one I wanted to tackle.

Then with the second image which is called "Snow Cabin" I made a Scrapbook Layout. This snow cabin is so cute with the Christmas lights and snow on the roof and window. When I seen this image I automatically knew I wanted to do a layout. One year my husband and I celebrated our anniversary in a cabin at a State park. Here's the layout with the story told on it.

Those Cabins are adorable. As you can see I did make three of them to make sure the image stood out. Of course you see that my children are there and that's what made the story. I used Snowflake paper from The Paper Studio for the background. All the glittered snowflakes are from Make It Christmas. I colored the cabins and all the white you see on them are glitter from Ranger. The font that I used for the story is Curlz MT. 

I do hope that you enjoyed my projects and will love the rest of the Design Teams projects. So, to see all the new 20 Digital Images just go to Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. You won't be disappointed.

Hope you are having a good start off to your day or evening according to where you live. It's starting to get a little colder here now. I don't mind the weather we are having now. It's great and I'm also loving the color of the trees. Although they are starting to fall off the trees. I'm not ready for Christmas though. But, my daughter is already starting to play the Christmas songs and wants to put up the tree. She is driving me crazy. She is being home schooled now and she started to play them everyday. She thinks it's hilarious when I start singing them and I don't even really know I'm doing it. I still thinking about Thanksgiving. It's going to be the first in our new home and it's going to be nice starting new traditions.

I love making baby cards so this was an easy card to make. The only thing is I don't know when to stop with the embellishments. I think I have to many around here that I don't know what I want to use. The set that I chose to use is called "Sweet Dreams Sheep." This is a set of two images and nine sentiments.  This very cute set is from our sponsor this week, Imagine That is our wonderful sponsor this week. They have many sets of digital stamps and she also has tutorials on there if you would like to learn something she has to show. Great place to get the prize from them and it is:

3 Digital Stamps

Now I want to show you my baby card with "Sweet Dreams Sheep."

I did get the idea for the quilt from the colored image that she has. It's colored differently. I used three different colors, brads and faux stitching. I also used one of her sentiments that she had on the set I used. Here are the rest of the items that I used on this card.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- The Paper Studio (Petite BeBe Stack)
Glittered Snowflakes -- Make It Christmas
Brads -- My Stash
Other Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Glitter On Lamb -- Ice Stickles By Ranger
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I can't wait for you to see the rest of the Design Teams Cards. If you would like to see their cards and also enter into our challenge you just need to go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. You will see everything their and also the rules for our challenge.

Happy November!! The first day of November and also the first day of time change. Then we also have a new challenge. A lot of new things going on today. For all of you that believe in the holiday of Halloween I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I did and I also went to my Grandson's Birthday party on the 31st. They should of had a Halloween party for it but they are young except my grandson will be 6 years old on the 10th of this month. This just happen to be my sons weekend to have his son. I love watching little kids faces when they are opening gifts. It is so precious. The only thing that shocked me was my grandson folded his jeans after he looked at each pair. Lastly, I just want to wish my grandson, Hayden, a Happy Wonderful Birthday.

In my mind I think Thanksgiving is a lost holiday. This is very sad but all the stores put things out for Halloween and then Christmas at the same time. You may find a small isle items for this holiday so this is a great chance to make things for the Holiday that needs to be remembered. So I'm really happy that Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog has decided to make this Thanksgiving challenge. Robyn is also our great sponsor this week. She allowed me to use an image called "Sunflower 1." I also did get to use a sentiment off the set "Fall Sentiments." So with the two images I had made seating cards for our Thanksgiving dinner. Inside they are suppose to write what they are grateful for. I don't know how everyone will like this but I hope they do. So, let's see what Robyn will be giving away this week.

Here is the seating for our Thanksgiving Feast.

They are not exactly the same but very close. I think they turned out great for a colorful table. These were really easy to make and took few items also. Here they are:

Well I hope you have a Wonderful Week and I will see you next weekend.

Good Morning!! It's been one soggy weekend here. A great time to watch scary movies and do some crafting. Everyone here had their own things they wanted to do so I stayed home and did my usual. No one likes the movies I watch so this was a perfect time to catch up on some I haven't seen. Everyone is use to me doing some of my crafting in the evenings while I try and watch TV at the same time with them. Plus, my cat has a cold so she has been sitting beside me the whole weekend. She is getting a little better today. I'm glad, she was scaring me there for a minute.

I love this week's challenge and we have a great sponsor for it. Limited Runs Digi Stamps has the cutest images for Halloween projects. These images are not ones that would scare the kids. They have also released some new digis and have many many categories of the images they have. I used the image "Witch and Sign." She is the cutest little girl that has fallen with her sign in her hands but she is still smiling. I made my card with her and spiders since there is a spider on the image. So, let's get to the prize so you can see my card.

3 Digital Stamps
Limited Runs Store

Now I want to show you the card I made with the "Witch and Sign."

The sign was blank so I added the Happy Halloween on it. The font that I used looks a little scary. It's called, "Chiller." This is one of my favorite fonts to use. This was a very easy card to make and very little items that I used. Here is my items.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- DCWV
Little Witch Sign -- EK Success (Inspirables)
Font -- Chiller
Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils 

See, it was a little simple. Just coming up with the idea was the hardest part, So I hope to see your Halloween projects over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Good Luck to you all!!

Good Morning Everyone!! Hope you had a nice weekend. Mine was great for once. My little bother married the love of his life. The ceremony was very beautiful and so was the bride. Yes, my brother was very handsome. The two of them are very blessed to have each other. They are an amazing couple. They had a ceremony with their closest family and friends. Then on Saturday they had a second reception for everyone they knew and more of the family that didn't come Friday night. They were married at a place called the Kelton House Museum. In the basement was a display of the old under ground railroad that people had been through. They had a lot of information on people that had been through there. This place was so beautiful. Perfect place for this perfect couple.

Sorry so long but I am still excited. DeeDee's Digis is our sponsor for this week's challenge. They offer many things in their store. There are digital images, digital papers, digi of the month and that's just a little of what is there. I would really love for you take a little bit of your time to visit their store. This store does offer a lot for your digital needs. The digital image I used was from a set called "Autumn Blessings." Since we had to use more that 2 pumpkins, I used one of the images three times and used their sentiment of "Happy Thanksgiving." They are offering a great prize.

That's something you would want to enter for. Especially using pumpkins for the holidays coming up. So, lets show you two of the images I used to make my Thanksgiving Card.

I hope you like it. The row of three pumpkins is one of the images I used and the Happy Thanksgiving is the second. I wanted the candles to look like they were a cream color so they would be noticeable. I have pumpkin paper, two more 3D pumpkins and the strip of pumpkins above the image. I wanted to put as many pumpkins as I could for this card. So here is the items used and who made them.

Another posts that I'm done with this month. It's going so fast that November will be here before long. The counting down for Christmas just makes me feel a little rushed already to get it done. How crazy is that. Just remember that Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog if where you need to be to see the challenge and the Design Teams Work.
