I was able to incorporate ALL of these fun products into my card:
Isn't that little squirrel adorable??
I found this cute file at the Silhouette online store.
I inked the edges and added white gel pen doodles for more dimension.

The burlap, button and twine are from my stash.

Challenges entered:
The Kraft Journal: Fall Colors

Peachy Keen Challenge

Hello everyone!
Here I am once again with a total LAST MINUTE  post to share my Peachy Keen Challenge project.  I have to admit... this one was kind of a tough one for me.
(And I totally apologize for the TERRIBLE pictures, like I said, it was last minute and the lighting is horrible at night!)
The Challenge is "Potluck". So instead of doing something to do with food, I went with one of my favorite things in the WHOLE world... COFFEE!! LOL!
And here it is:

The stamps are all from the new Stamp of the Month for September!
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!

I am entering this into the Peachy Keen Challenge.

There's a SCARE in the Air!

Hello everyone!
I hope you are enjoying your week so far. :)
Today I am sharing a card I made for the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge.
And here is my take:
Instead of using the circles from the sketch, I used bats. :)

I found this adorable SVG at Miss Kate Cuttables and stamped the face using PKS Princess Face Asst.
The stamped sentiment is from Scrappy Moms "A Haunting We Will Go".

a Whole Latte Love

Happy Saturday Crafters!
I hope you are having a fabulous weekend so far. :)  It's my day to post over at the Joy's Life Design Team blog.
This week the Joy's Life DT has showcased "shaped cards".  I don't do these very often, but I think they are a lot of fun!
Here is what I came up with:

My sentiment is from the "You're So Punny" stamp set:

This image is an SVG I found at KaDoodle Bug Designs. To create the shaped card, I used Silhouette Studio Designer Ed. software. I layered the SVG image on the screen, then I offset the image (shadow) and traced it. I took the traced image, duplicated it, flipped the second image and then welded the two together to create the base.

I hope you enjoyed my card!! :)

The "totally awesome" is from the My Hero stamp set and the "teacher" is from Everyday Occasions stamp set.

I found this great pencil at SVG

Sweet little pumpkin

Hello my crafty friends!
It's Wednesday evening, so you know what that means??
Time for my Peachy Keen Challenge project! Yep, that's right... I procrastinated AGAIN!!  LOL!
In my defense tho, I have been SUPER busy so I haven't had much time to be crafting.
Anyways, it's the "photo inspiration" challenge this week at PKS, and I was inspired by the colors:

And here is my card:
You gotta LOVE those cute Peachy faces!!
All of those faces come from the "Cornies" stamp set.
The pumpkins come from the Sept. 2012 SOTM Kit.
