CAS396 Pumpkin Patch


I'm this week's CAS hostess & the theme is pumpkins. I'm not a fan of pumpkin... not the color, not the flavor, not in food form or drink form.  I do like them in decorating though!!  My challenge is to use pumpkin in a way that you enjoy!

Stamps: Fall Mailbox Whipper Snapper Designs
c/s: white, brown

Power Poppy Color Outside the Lines


I made this for the Power Poppy Color Outside the Lines Mini Challenge #3.   I'm more of a color inside of the lines kinda gal, but it was fun to smear the blue ink around!  LOL    We are headed out the door to go to the last outdoor archery tournament for the year.  South Dakota here we come!

Stamps: In Praise of Sunflowers, sentiment from Cozy Cupfuls Power Poppy
c/s: white, blue
copics, water color brush, Tim Holtz Distress marker, oval punch

Until next time!

CAS395 Fall Leaves


This week's CAS challenge at SCS is falling objects, it doesn't have to be leaves. It doesn't feel like fall here yet.  It was 100* yesterday.  I'm trying to get in the mood for fall, but it hasn't happened yet! LOL

Curtain Call Candy Apples






When I saw this photo of the current Curtain Call Challenge,  those black & white polka dots sucked me in!!!!!  I'm still in a tiny bit of denial that fall is around the corner, so I went with flowers.

CAS392 For You


This week's CAS challenge over on SCS is diagonal stripes.  I'm getting a little low on generic note cards, so that was my thought process when I sat down to create this card.  The next 8 weeks are a little nutty for us & I know I'm gonna want some cards to send out.  I can get them in the mail so much faster if I have a stash.

Stamps: Birthday Blooms SU!
c/s: white, black, diagonal stripe dp
copics, black pearls

Until next time!

MMTPT422 For Anne


There is a weekly challenge on Splitcoast, on Tues that is called the Tea Pot Tuesday challenge.  Each week, there is a different person selected where cards can be sent.  This week's person is Anne Ryan.  Her husband passed away earlier in the month.  I wondered if he did.  And I've thought about her over the last few weeks.  Normally, Ann comments on my cards in the gallery & not just my card but LOTS of people's cards.  She is amazing how she encourages people with a sweet comment on their card.  I knew her husband was very sick & when she stopped commenting on my cards, I wondered if something had happened.  I'm so glad that she is the focus of this week's Tea Pot Challenge.
