Happy Harvest

We officially moved into the Fall season this week -- hooray! All around the country now, harvests are taking place. Months of hard work are culminating in food to feed millions, and incomes to support the families of those who labor to produce it. God is good!

Today we have a card to share that celebrates this seasonal harvest so beautifully! Designer KT Fit Kitty created this, using the precolored image and a sentiment from the "Harvest Hellos" set, along with an eclectic variety of accents that speak to the abundance of this season -- veggie buttons, felt leaves, die cuts, gems, and an adorable little snail that no garden could do without! If you look closely at the image, you can also see that Kitty popped up parts of it to really bring it to life. Little Oscar the Cat really seems to be snuggled into his mound of fruits and veggies, having his own little harvest celebration. Beautiful, just like this season! :-)

For Baby with Kathy D.!

We're back this week with one last share from our September Guest Designer, Kathy D.! This week, Kathy used the "For Baby" set to make this absolutely precious baby boy card. To make this, Kathy started with the sketch from the "Sketch Saturday" challenge, which we just happen to be sponsoring this week. :-) Taking a peek at the challenge at "Incy Wincy," which we are also sponsoring, she decided to work their "Anything Goes" theme in to her card as well.

Kathy printed one of the precolored images from this baby set on to textured cardstock. Kathy frequently uses textured cardstocks in her creations, and that gives such a fun look to the images, don't you think? She added sweet printed papers and punched stars to compliment the stars on the one baby blanket in the image. Some soft, brown inking along the edges of some of the cardstocks and papers adds a wonderful bit of extra warmth to this.

It has been such a delight to have Kathy designing for us this month! Thank you, Kathy, for all of the amazing inspiration! If you, dear reader, would like to see more of Kathy's fabulous creations, and continue to be inspired by her crafty talent, please visit her blog -- Dunnitagain Designs.

Before we sign off, I wanted to share one last, fun bit of news about Kathy. She  has agreed to join our team as our new Sponsorship Coordinator! Kathy and I have been friends for some time now from our days of working at Clear Dollar Stamps/Clearly Digi Stamps together, but only this month did I come to realize how superior her organizational skills are! She has a knack for spotting what needs to be done and, well, let's just say she's been keeping me on my toes for weeks now -- ha ha! It is a great blessing to us, therefore, that she is joining our team. We sponsor several crafty challenges each month, and she will be helping to make that happen much more efficiently.

Speaking of challenge sponsorships, Kathy would like me to remind you to take a peek at the top of our right sidebar. There you will find a listing of all of the challenges we're sponsoring this month. Each time you play, you get a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to our shop. So what are you waiting for? :-)
