Bountiful Goodness!

It's just five weeks until Thanksgiving in the United States.  Canada celebrated Thanksgiving very recently.  It's a great time of year to celebrate and give thanks for all that we have been given and all those who are in our lives.

Anne, our guest designer for October, has made a beautiful card to share with us.  It certainly reminds me of this great season we celebrate!  She used Bounteous Blessings and added a beautiful die cut with those little extra special touches of pearls.  Isn't this just lovely?

Anne loves to make cards.  When I asked her what her favorite type of papercraft project was, she said "It is cards and my favorite theme is whatever season is next. Even though it is fall I am now working on Christmas and Winter cards so that I can supply cards to the needs of the organizations I deal with. The middle of November I will be working on Valentine's Day Cards."  I am certainly glad she loves celebrating those special days!  Take a few minutes and visit Anne at Cards with Purpose.  She would love to have you visit.  And while you're there - why not leave her some love too.

Come back next week and see what Anne has in store for us.  I'm sure it will be amazing!!!!!

The More Pumpkins the Merrier!

Pumpkins...don't you love them? Their shape, their color, their flavor when cooked...there are just so many wonderful things about them! Over at Robyn's Fetish Challenges this week, they love pumpkins so much that they want to see you create a project that features at least two pumpkins! Well we have pumpkins galore in our shop if you'd like to join in the fun.  Need some ideas to get your crafty mojo moving today? Carol and Tamara are happy to oblige! :-)

"Raggedy Fall" digi set

"Warm Autumn Wishes," indeed -- there is so much warmth in this sweet card! I love how Carol's hand-crafted pumpkin accent matches so well to the one in her rag doll friend's hands.

"Bounteous Blessings" digi set

Look at that fabulous patterned background paper! Tamara really set the scene for celebrating not just pumpkins but all of the bounty of God's blessings!

OK, crafty friends -- it's your turn! Show us the pumpkins!!! :-)
