Crafty Contagion Pumpkin Challenge!

Hey All!  This sweet card share today was made for the new challenge over on the Crafty Contagion, Pumpkin!
I Miss You
I had a really challenging time making this card...HONEST!  We are in the middle of a cross country move and all I have on hand is a tiny pack of paper, some images, letter stickers, brads and a little ribbon and flowers.  We are talking less than a yard of ribbon and 24 sheets of 6x6 paper.  Oh and paper trimmer!!  I'm sure there will be some triage to this card when we reach Arizona since I fully believe our troops deserve straight crisp cuts!

Have an awesome weekend and make sure to go play along at Crafty Contagion!!

Crafty Contagion Twine Challenge!

Hey all! There's a new challenge blog up and totally fun!  Crafty Contagion is a fun new blog started by my favorite group of monthly Stamping Together Divas!  The first challenge to kick off the blog is to use Twine! Soo easy!  Hope you all can play along!
tis the season
Have you ever had a card fully planned out in your head but couldn't get it to come to life?  Insert this card there!  I had something completely different in mind for this card.  It has grown on me though and now I like it but I was so disappointed when I first made it.  I used SU card stocks, embossing folder and brads to make this card.  I used my Copics to make a few of the snowflakes pop and Tonic punches for the deer.  The twine is from our crazy Stamping Together Divas order.  I don't think I'll ever buy twine again!

Tonic Challenge

Hey Friends!  I have a super cute card to share!  There's a challenge up on the Tonic blog to create a fall themed card using one of their punches.  I don't own many punches but I am fortunate to have a friend who does and she had this cute tree punch by Tonic.  Makes a great inchies card!
a Tonic hello
Are they cute or what!  I used a Tonic punch to create this card and carefully cut around each tree to form 1" squares (I finished wishing for a square punch!) and used dimensional foam to make them pop on colored 1" squares.  The card stock and sentiment are from SU! as well as the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
