September Card Buffet

 Fall is just around the corner, so it's time for Pumpkins!  I love all the Pumpkin recipes I see on Pinterest.  Here is a "pizza box" treat box that can be used for a small gift or even a gift card.  Place one at each place at Thanksgiving filled with your favorite treat.  
(Sorry...pumpkin candies not included) favorite holiday.  Show your loved ones you care by remembering them with a handmade greeting card.

 I bet we can all find someone that deserves our thanks.  This card uses some of the Designer Paper from the Fall collection in the Holiday mini catalog.

Even with the holidays upon us, there are still birthdays to be celebrated.

It's never too early to get a start on Christmas cards.  Here is the dove from the new stamp set called Calm Christmas.

Labor Day Weekend VCMP!

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It's an honor to be a hostess for one of the VCMP challenges.  I hope you have been enjoying being creative, and just maybe you have learned something new along the way.  Since I live in Fort Worth, Texas, I always look forward to Fall.  It comes a little later here then when I lived in Wisconsin and Minnesota.  So my challenge for you is to create a card with a Fall theme, but not a Thanksgiving card.  Use a leaf motif with fall colors - rusts, yellows, golds, red, dark greens, etc.  As you can see below, Sketch #64 is what I chose.  Your card can be an I Love You or I Miss You card, or even a Thinking About You or Thank You.  Can't wait to see what you create!  Have Fun!

My card is created with the Emboss Resist technique.  The leaves were embossed with Pewter embossing powder first onto Vanilla cardstock.  Then the colors are sponged in a random pattern.  The 3.5 x 4.75 panel was put on a Cajun Craze panel and then mounted on a Midnight Muse card.  All products are from Stampin' Up. 

Don't forget to link up your beautiful card with the inlinkz thingy
down below.  And keep on stamping!
