Hello! WOW today is my 10th straight day in a row for a blog post?!! That has to be a record for me?? Better get in gear though because I don't have anything planned yet for tomorrow?!! Today's card is for the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog #59 ~ Leave it Bare. I automatically thought of either their Mustang or Goat stamp (They REALLY need a realistic Cat stamp like this too!!! Hint hint hint ;-) ) I have used both these stamps before with or without coloring an LOVE them done either way! It's also for the Animal Friends Challenge ~ Animal with Fur and the Allsorts Challenge Blog ~ Black and White plus One. Thanks so much for stopping by an I hope you come back again soon!

Mr. & Mrs.

Hello! Today's card is for the CAS(E) this Sketch #190 challenge. My mind went straight to wedding card when I saw this sketch. Perfect time to break in this new Kaisercraft die I bought! I used a Stampin Up embossing folder an added some nailheads to flower centers and a MFT Fancy Flourish as accent. I think it would look nice with just pearls as flower centers too? Maybe for my next one! It's also for the CCEE Stampers Challenge #1637 ~ Die Cuts / No Stamping. Thanks for stopping by an come back soon.

Fall Thanks

Hello! I seem to be on a roll with my Fall cards! This is for the Stampin' Royalty Challenge SR#344 to use Stripes. The Word Art Wednesday, anything goes challenge. Also another one for the Mod Squad Challenge to use Foliage. Love using my SU oval punches to make pumpkins! I embossed some card stock an ran a ink pad over it before punching out my pieces and assembling them. The center ovals are up on foam tape to give a 3D look. The thanks is a die cut (Hero Arts I believe) that my friend Stacy  (Thanks Stacy!!) sent me, Love the font/style of this one an will have to add it to my never ending wish list! Thanks for stopping by an have a wonderful day!
