FM#77  theme is Indian Summer and we can "Mashup" by using three of the following paper colors; "Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade & Early Espresso".
I chose, Cajun Craze, More Mustard and Early Espresso.
The leaves punched from More Mustard, drew veins with a stylus then traced over them with a brown lead pencil. After chalking the edges, I used the McGill molding mat and large ball stylus to curl the leaves. Indian Summer sentiment done on the computer.

Welcome Fall

Yesterday may have been  the first day of fall but we sure couldn't tell that as we attended our granddaughter's soccer game. It was rather mild as I took my two mile walk early this morning but as the hours have passed, we can tell temperatures are cooling down. Yay!!
This cool weather along with Mojo Monday Challenge #259 is my inspiration for this card.
Tools used;
  Scrappin Cottage 4x4 Wagon Wheel w/Pumpkins die
Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge for the scalloped circle
George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge for the large circle
Scraps of paper in fall colors and pattern
Computer generated sentiment
I highlighted details on the pumpkins and wagon wheel then chalked all edges.

Fall Birthday Card

I chose to eliminate one of the shapes in this week's MoJo Monday Challenge 257 as my card became  too "busy". Paper color choices are white, black, orange and an orange/brown  plaid. The sentiments are computer generated.
Tools used are Creative Memories leaf punch, Fiskar scalloped edge punch and two sizes of Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Scallops. I chalked the edges of the sentiment circle and leaves then  curled  the leaf edges using the McGill Paper Blossom molding pad and small ball stylus. I don't think this shows up in the picture but adds a lot of dimension. 

Halloween Card

Some weeks good intentions just don't work out. I made the following card for MoJo Monday Challenge 256 but failed to meet the posting deadline. Hope you will enjoy.

I chose to do the square version. White cardstock  measures 10 x 5 inches then folded in half to form the 5x5inch card. The plaid paper is 4 3/4 inch square,  then added purple, brown and black banners.
The cat stamp is a Ben Frankinl purchase years ago and the owl is a Martha Stewart punch. Spooky lettering is from a Scrappin Cottage Haunted House 4 x 4 die. I added a small piece of orange behind the owls eyes and outlined around the owl with brown ink for added dimension.
