CardPatterns #85, Create4fun #41, Stampin' for the Weekend #49, TotallyPaperCrafts #38

Fall is still in there air with plenty of challenges out there to take part in for inspiration... this little cutie is Kai from Mo Manning's Digi's. Sooooo cute. Our family loves fall especially for the leaf tossing. I'll send this card to my brother for his baby girl due in November. They live where the tree's are plentiful so I am certain they too will make great use of the leaves year to year.

Card Pattern #85 is the following sketch to play with:

Create4Fun #41 wants a Digi Stamp used.
Totally Paper Crafts #38 is looking for Autumn.
Stampin' for the Weekend #49 is looking for Fall.

Kai is one of many great digi stamps from Mo's Digital Pencil.
Paper is Cloud9 Design: Harvest Holiday

Magnolia Down Under #65 & Double Dutch #53

It's time for a little Trick or Treating in the craft room. I am sooooooo loving this sketch Double Dutch has to play with. It was the perfect pair with my little Tilda... I don't know that she is specifically "Halloween" but the dress can be used in so many ways I thought she was perfect for my card.
Magnolia Down Under #65 is challenging us to use Flowers and Lace. On the front of my card I cut black primas into petals and used them under Tilda's feet.
Double Dutch #53 has the following fun sketch to play with:
I hunted my stash again... gotta get the paper out of the shelves and onto a project! I soooo love this Cosmo Cricket: Haunted and I swear I thought I'd never actually use it. Every piece is double sided fun. On the inside of the card flap I wanted to see the print so I applied 2 layers of vellum... enough to see the print but enough coverage to see writing!

Stamps used:
Magnolia: Tilda With Thistle
Heide Grace: Halloween (spiders and web)
Making Memories: Spellbound (trick or treat)
Hero Arts: Owl-Oween (pumpkin and treat bag)

The fence behind Tilda is punched from the new Martha Stewart mongo big punch. Thank you Kathrin for sharing it! So fun.

I know I'll be using this sketch again. I just love it :)
