Paper Cutz Challenge # 8




Hi guys,

Labor day is over, school's back in session and it's time to start thinking of Fall! Don't know about you, but Fall is my favorite season of the year. Cool days and nights, the beautiful orange, gold and red leaves on the trees, the smell of woodsmoke as people start having fires in their fireplaces! I love it!

In honor of the coming Fall season, Paper Cutz Challenge # 8 is an A, B, C/Fall challenge. Make a card, LO or craft project for Fall using only ONE item from each letter:

A: Apples, Acorns or Autumn Leaves

B: Buttons, Brads or Bows

C: Circles, Charms or Crocheted Embellies

I think this one will be fun and shouldn't be too hard. You can use any colors you'd like. Just post your name and a link to your entry in Mr Linky by midnight, September 17th. Be sure to check out all the great DT members creations. They're a very talented and inspiring group of ladies! So, come on over and get inspired HERE, and join in on the challenge this week! This week's winner will receive Hot Off The Press Halloween Brads and Brad Buddies! They're really cute and I'd like to have them myself!

For my card, I decided to use this squirrel sitting on an acorn, from Cricut cart Stretch Your Imagination. I think he's so cute. I used Bazzill cs and inked and chalked the edges of everything for added dimension, and mounted the squirrel and acorns on pop dots. The button, spiral clip and ribbon are from my stash.

Here's a video of my card. Thanks for watching!



Have a great weekend, everyone and thanks for coming by to see me! Now, head on over to Paper Cutz Challenge and check it out!

Hugs,
Mary
