Pumpkin Wagon

Tonight I made this  cute little wagon full of pumpkins for the Connie Can Crop Pumpkin Spice Challenge.  Catch the Bug also has a Pumpkin challenge.  Jo's Scrap Shack has a  Cut it Up Challenge. 

Christmas Kitten

Wow! It's been a  long time since I posted anything!  Life has just been way too busy for me to have much fun in the craft room.  Today, I'm having a lazy day and enjoying  it  just a bit.  I used the Sketch at  Sketch Saturday for this  cute little kitten. Digitally Sweet Challenges has a Pet or animal challenge.  I have lots of cats so I often use cats in my cards.  I used a  paw print patterned paper as the background so I want to enter this in the Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper challenge as well.  Brown Sugar Challenges also has an Anything goes challenge.

Another  Quick one before bedtime.  This one is  for the  MHK Designs Color Challenge.  Through the Purple Haze has an Add Embellishments  challenge.  I added  these sparkly red gems.

Place settings

I made these cute place setting cards for my  Thanksgiving table.  I just  thought they were so cute.  Simon Says Wednesday has a Thanks/Thanksgiving Challenge.

Christmas Owl

Just another  Quickie before I get moving today!  I'd like to sit here all day but I have way too many things to do for that to happen.  This image is from The Paper Shelter and I will  use him in the Christmas Challenge they currently have.  I used the sketch from Wednesday's Creative Inspiration Challenge.

Fall Bendi Card

I had never made a Bendi card  until today.  I love  this look and it goes together  so easily.   Crafty Gals has a Sentiment Challenge.  Fab N Funky has a Kraft paper challenge. I used  Kraft for the tree trunks and the cover on the bend part of this card.  CAS ual Friday has a  color challenge  using orange brown and Kraft.  This really  went together quickly and its  sorta  clean and simple.

Fall Tree

I really missed making  a ton of fall cards.  I've simply have not had enough time.  Life is just too busy .  Anyway I made this one from fall  colors.  I love the glittery  moon  overlooking the bare limbs on the tree.  Simon Says Stamp Monday has a  Thinking of You challenge this week.  Simon Says Wednesday's challenge is also thinking of you.  Cupcake Inspiration posted a  tree challenge today.  Penny's Paper Craft Challenges and Brown Sugar both have  Anything Goes Challenges.

I bought this  set of stamps  from Art Impressions last week and just couldn't wait to use them. I love these  little hens.  Art Impressions has Christmas  challenge this week.  I used the sketch at Die Cutting Divas for this card.  I  had to adjust it a little to make it work but it is pretty close.  I  dug out my Spellbinder  dies to cut the oval and the squares.  Crafty Sentiments and Through the Craft Room Door both have an Anything Goes Challenge.  Aud Sentiments has a Cute with a  Sentiment challenge.  These  cute  chicks should certainly qualify.

Ghost trio

Still working at  finishing all the open projects on my  desk.  There is a sketch challenge at Cards TV.  You had the choice of two sketches.  I chose this one because I simply love these trio cards.  Also, Jo's Scrap Shack has an Orange Purple and Green Challenge.  I love being able to create  using  my scraps. Cupcake Inspiration has a Purple green and  White Challenge. I added  some orange, hope that's ok. Crafting From the Heart and Craft on Your Passion both have Anything Goes Challenges.

Happy Birthday

Again I managed to use something that  has been hiding on my desk for a while.  I'm really  working  hard at finishing a few projects I had laying around.  This was intended for a friend's birthday last month but never got finished.  Oh well, I did it today!  Brown Sugar Challenges  has a Birthday Theme.   Little Miss Muffett has  an Anything Goes Challenge.  For this card I used Sketch 224 from Sketch Saturday.  Creative Knockouts has a Use a Sentiment Challenge.  Dream valley Challenges  has a Girls Challenge.


I made this card  last week and forgot to post him.  Today I will post him in the  Give a Crafter a Cookie Challenge.  As You Like It has an  Old or New Stash Challenge.  Since this little guy has been on my desk for several weeks before I  finally put  him together, I'm going to call him OLD STASH.  I love using "old" or leftover pieces off my desk.  I'm  one of those  people  who refuse to throw something away once it is made.  So I have lots of leftover pieces.  Glitter N' Sparkle still has a Halloween Challenge as well. I used a  super fine red  glitter to  add shimmer to his red cape lining.
