It's starting to feel like autumn!

And it's looking like in my SCS gallery too! Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors, holidays, cooler weather, and the beginning of a new school year.

This card measures 5.25 square. I received the scalloped Nestie from Wish RAK!

Stamps: An Apple A Day - Impression Obsession, Canvas - SU
Paper: chocolate chip, white, creamy caramel, only orange
Ink: brown stazon, creamy caramel
Accessories: Copic markers, Nestie, eyelet, ribbon

This second card was a Wish RAK Labor Day Weekend challenge card. All of the cards made last weekend are being donated to our troops. Some are going to the servicemen and women so that they can send them to loved ones. Some are going to wounded heroes in hospitals. I'm honored to be a part of such a great effort.

My Wish RAK item is the chocolate chip scalloped Nestie! I got the dark brown ribbon from my friend Hobbywoman! Thanks Julie!

This card measures 5x5. The creamy caramel DP is from SU's Round Up. The flourish DP is from (I think) DCWV or Provocraft.

A Busy Week!

Wow! It's been a week since I updated! Most of the week was spent with doctor appointments and continuing the unmounting project in my craft room. That led to major reorganizing because of more space. I think I might actually be organized enough to start scrapbooking again! :) And I have more unloved items to put on eBay this week. I also discovered two brand new blog challenges that I will add soon.

On the topic of challenges, I've been participating in the weekend Wish RAK challenges where we donate the cards for the troops. I'll be adding those soon. The only other stamping I did this week were 2 color challenge cards. I LOVE this combo: rose red, kraft & black.
