Thanksgiving Challenge card

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for Joan's Thanksgiving Challenge. Here are the details:

1. Create a Thanks giving card
2. Use something Fallish such as Leaves, Pumpkins or Indian Corn (if you don't have a stamp use a leaf from your tree.
3. The color Green.

4. Some kind of swirl or vine.

I used Heartfelt Open Falling Leaves stamps and Heartfelt Spellbinders dies for the leaves (that I purchased from Joan's store) on this card. I used my copic airbrush to color the paper, stamped the leaves and then used the dies to cut them out in my Big Shot die cutting machine. I used Whiff of Joy's Willow for the main image.

Don't ya just love the swirly pearls? They are from ZVA and to tell you the truth, I don't remember where I bought them! I've had them for awhile and this challenge was just the perfect time to use them.

I stamped and cut out a lot of extra leaves. I airbrushed a whole 8 1/2 x 11 paper and stamped the whole thing with the leaves. I just love the way they turned out.

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

For my second card today I used a sketch from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I LOVE this company's stamp sets. Many of the stamps are designed to work with the Spellbinder's die cuts. The decorative border that is on the cream colored designer paper (with the small pink flowers) is a Waltzingmouse stamp found here. I also used fancy phrases stamps on the fancy tag in the front.

This is my first time to play along with Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I hope to play more often, especially after I receive my order I just placed. I could take a little while to get here considering they are coming from Ireland! :)

Thank you for visiting!

I got my crafting mojo back!

Like it says in the title, I've got my crafting mojo back and I like it! I have a few cards to share with you today but I'll post them one at a time because they are made for challenges. I love challenges!

This first card is for 7kids college fund challenge: Give Thanks. I used a Whiff of Joy image that I LOVE. I know it's getting cold outside but this image makes me feel like it's a warm summer day.

This card also qualifies for Simon Says challenge which is sparkle! The shiny red gems and shiny strawberry are my favorites.
