Beautiful Fall Day!

Well...........not really! It's still hot here, but not as bad as last week! It's "use it or lose it" time at my house, which means I need to utilize these scraps of paper I've been collecting forever! There are a lot of neutrals, which is good because I will be starting on Thanksgiving cards shortly. I'm such a hoarder with paper! So my little kitty is an image by Penny Black, colored in copics. Pretend the flowers are mums, OK? I used flowersoft for the centers, and clear glaze for the pot (complete w/my thumbprint!) Ribbon, charm, copper butterfly and we are set to go! I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Stamps R Us (Nature's Gifts)
Twin Touch Markers (Fall colors)
Flutterby Wednesday (Scraps)
Penny Black All Sorts (Autumn)
Really Reasonable Ribbon (Fall)
Wags & Whiskers (Fall)
Totally Papercrafts (Layers)
Designed2Delight (Cute Critters)
The Sweet Stop (Sketch)
Dutch Dare (Photo inspiration)
CMC (Fall or Halloween)

I hope everyone has a great week! I have been going to the gym every day for 1 1/2 hours, and
O M G, am I sore!  It's not exercise though, it's live-a-cise! Take care!

Fraidy Cat!

I really, really mean to post at least once a week, and then the time just flies by! I'm in the Halloween mode and this is my eighth card, so there's no excuses why they are not on here! I just got back from Atlanta GA, visiting the grandchildren (17, 16, 9 & 3) We spent the day @ the pumpkin patch Saturday, riding ponies, getting lost in the maize (a-maizing), and finishing up with a hayride. The weather there is phenomenal, no humidity. Fall is my favorite season, so I don't know how the heck I landed here in Fl near the equator! UGH, it is still in the 80's and 90's here~~stick a fork in me, I am DONE! Anyway, this image (such a cutie!) is from Serendipity Stamps. I won the challenge last month, and it was their entire line of Halloween stamps! I was definitely doing the happy dance! Their next challenge is fall, so head over there~~she gives great prizes, and you won't be the 589th challenge entry LOL! I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Color Create (Lilac/black/white)
Totally Papercrafts (Animals)
OCL (Halloween)
Fussy and Fancy (Halloween)
Wee Memories (Halloween)
CPS (Sketch)
2Sisters Challenge (Halloween)

Party Time!!!!!!!!!!

It is a glorious Monday here in FL! Windows are open, no humidity and all is right with the world (for the moment!) I am backk from a wonderful visit with my sister in MA~~not much foliage I'm afraid, so will have to plan a trip later in the fall next year. We had a good time though, and she is coming down for three months in January~~the perfect situation, winters in FL, spring,summer and fall in NE. Gosh, the luck of some people, LOL! Anyway, I am posting this fall card, because the colors are my favorite! The image is by Serendipity Stamps, one of my faves. Outlawz is having a 1000 member celebration, so head on over because the prizes are outstanding! I thought I would come back with a bang and entering this into mucho (?) challenges
