Fall, Fur and Fun!

Oh my... as a fairly new blogger, tonight I accidentally deleted all comments from 10-17 to 10-24. My apologies for those of you who posted a comment that is no longer visible. I promise never to try to organize things again! 

Another House Mouse card this time the little critter is falling gently to earth with the help of a beautiful maple leaf. I cut a square from the card and attached acetate to allow the cloudy sky to show through. Plus, the acetate provided a place for me to attach the fussy cut image securely to the card. Am also entering the card into several other challenges that focus on fall leaves.

Used a new Lawn Fawn stamp and sentiment set to create a sweet winter card. Added a small star cluster stamp and left lots of white space to qualify as CAS for the Less Is More challenge. The images are colored with Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen. Also am entering it into a challenge that is brand new to me, A Blog Named Hero, that usually focuses on Hero Arts, but also includes Lawn Fawn stamps this month. So fun!

Christmas Cards All Year Round's challenge this month features a monochromatic color scheme focusing on brown. This was a bit more challenging than I thought it would be! Since I had the Lawn Fawn fox set out… I used those stamps again. Finished the card by using a strip of paper lace as a stencil and sponged on some brown ink. (Note, the ink on the scarf looks burgundy in the photo. It actually is a deep reddish brown.

Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge is to feature a dog on your card. I've had this wonderful dog saying in my craft files for many years. I formatted it to fit on a postcard with room along the right side to stamp this adorable PSX Golden lab pup. Don't you just want to scratch his fluffy little chin? And, since the sentiment on the card is uplifting, I am also entering it into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
