WOOHOO!! Fall is finally arrived (officially Wednesday 9/23/15) - my favorite season of the year! Last weekend we finally got to go camping. We spent a great couple of days at Tippecanoe River State Park. We have never camped there, it's a beautiful park. We enjoyed crisp mornings, warm days, and cool nights around the campfire.

But this weekend it's back to the Craft Room for more card challenges and to start to prepare for October's stamp classes and workshops.

I have 3 cards to share with you today. The 1st is for MOJO415.

   09.20.15-Mojo 415 (2)

This is just under the wire as the challenge closes at 6pm.  I used the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set, Boo to You Framelits, and the Note Tag punch. A little masking and a little brayering completed the overall effect of a Halloween card.

The next 2nd card is for the SGGW challenge.

09.20.15-SGGW

The medallions are 1½ x 1½ pieces of Delightful Dijon punched on all four corners with the new Curvy Corner Trio punch, also in the Holiday Catalog. The flowers were punched out of leftover cardstock from the August Paper Pumpkin kit.

The 3rd card is for the Paper Players challenge PP263

 09.20.15-PP263

I used the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder again. This time with Very Vanilla and I brayered the trees in soft suede. The leaves were cut with the decorative die from the Square Pillow Box Thinlits

Here's a list of all the products used:

Beautiful weekend here in north central Indiana - mid 80's, low humidity, sunshine - my kind of weather.

This is the card I submitted to the 7/31/15 SGGW Challenge

My mother will be 92 later this month and I'm going to send her a card a day during her birthday week, so I'm stockpiling.

But the majority of the weekend was focused on the grandkids. School is starting and I just wanted to send them a little something to let them know we were thinking about them and that we are very proud of them. So I made these and filled them with a couple of goodies.

Backpacks-08.02.15

They are my adaptations of a couple of posts on Pinterest and a box made by Sam Donald @ http://pootles.co.uk/. Easy to create and lots of fun to make. I think they will enjoy them.

Well, that's all for now, until next time,
