Hi ladies!
It's been a rainy "blah" day here hopefully this little hop will help you all feel creative and inspired!
And I hope all our East Coast friends our safe and doing well...and able to join us:)

So here is my fun little "fall" card for you....I don't usually create Halloween cards so I felt since we were around that time, a fall card would be appropriate.
Lovin' the colors of this paper pad from My Mind's Eye - Indie Chic "Ginger". I think is just so perfect for fall...and so pretty with this leave stamp.

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Ginger" 6X6 Paper Pad; Jillibean Soup Bean Stalks Orange Twine; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Rusty Hinge; Jenni Bowling Ink - Brown Sugar; Scallop Edge Punch, Large Scallop Edge Punch & Heart Punch - EK Success; Button - Misc.

I layered the sentiment right over the the bird image and I love how it turned out....kinda created my own little embelly for my card.

Hi ladies!! 
Well as promised, I have a new card for you all!
The challenge this month over at Unity Stamp Co is to use pumpkins on your this was what I came up with....

The pumpkin was created using my Cricut machine...but I enhanced the little guy by adding rosey cheeks, googlely eyes (I couldn't resist) plus the leaves and cute! 
I wanted to add a little bit of a sentiment inside the card too...sometimes this just adds a little "something" to carry out the design from the front.
Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup - Cardstock Stickers & Patterned Paper (Green Peppercorns, Milk, Apple Cider, Dried Thyme); Jenni Bowlin Ink - Brown Sugar; Leaves - Prima Marketing; Cricut Cartridge - Create A Critter; Jenni Bowlin - Pearl Charm; Buttons - Doodlebug; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick; Misc - Photo Corners, Twine & Googlely eyes

This is the fantastic Unity stamp set I used....perfect for fall and thanksgiving....

OK - so now its your turn ladies!! Head over to the Unity blog for all the details about the challenge!
