CCEE1944 Time of Harvest

 Hi everyone!

Thanks, Kelly, for all your great challenges for the month of October.

Today is Halloween!
Although many celebrate this day with dressing up or finding fun costumes, --  "let's keep it simple and create a card with anything Halloween OR Harvest -- costumes, candies, spooky things, or just use orange and black!"

We're looking forward to what you create! 

I decided to make a harvest card, and wishing blessings of grace.  I love the colors of fall and wanted to make use of some of my favorites and yet making use of the orange and black combination as well.

CCEE1943 Porch in the fall

It's Kelly here with your weekly challenge.  
This week, think about a 'Porch in the Fall' --
 leaves, pumpkins, rocking chair, wreaths on the door, d├ęcor. 
 Create a card with a fall porch in mind or use fall colors!

We look forward to seeing what you create!

I used a Bo Bunny stamp to make the bricks and Rubber Tapestry stamps for my plants. and not sure of the source for my senitment. My bench is a diecut.  I drew the window and the porch floor.

Decided to make a few Halloween cards for my grandchildren. This one fits the sketch over on the Mojo Monday challenge that can be found HERE. I just love orange so this is my favorite season on the year.

MIX351 and CTD565

I made this for the MIX challenge on SCS to use mixed media and use a sentiment that is pieced together from other stamps. I also used the colors of lilac, gray, and black which were this week's color throwdown challenge colors. I used my old SU hydrangea stamp and for the words I used 3 different Verve stamps. This card was done on watercolor paper and the inks were Distress Oxide inks and Versafine black. For a little pizzaz I added lilac sequins.

Hi everyone! 
 Kelly here continuing on as your October hostess!
Yesterday was National Fossil Day. 
 A fossil is a preserved impression of a once-living thing from a past geological age, including plants, animals, shells, and more.
  Your challenge is to create a card including anything that has been found as a fossil -- dinosaurs, leaves, amber, footprints, etc.

We look forward to seeing what you make!

I had to really search my dies and stamps to come up with something for this challenge. Plus I was running late getting this made, so this is what I came up with. CAS is good when time in ticking away!!! The sentiment stamp is from VERVE.

CCEE1941 National Rainforest Week

Kelli continues this month as hostess.  She tells us that it's World Rainforest Week (October 10-16).  Our challenge is to create a card showing the rainforest or any animal you'd find in the rainforest (and/or trees, rivers, rainforest animals, etc.).

I decided to use lots of color and especially greens on my card. I used a cute stamp and diecutting set from Spellbinders for this card.

Hope you check out all of the team cards over on the CCEEstampers blogsite HERE
If you want to join in on the fun, just link your card over on the blogssit linky and if you post it to SCS use the CCEE1941 keyword. .

Kelli is the hostess for October.  She tells us that "today is National Techies Day.  I am so grateful to have the technology that we do!  Create a card with something 'techy' on it (computers, cell phones, etc.) or simply create a thank you card (if need be!)" 

Mine is done with two bugs having a conversation. The ant is from Momento and the grasshopper is from Stampin' Up. It says, Ant: Where's your antenna?  The grasshopper: I've gone digital. 
The only thing I found with technological stuff on it was this paper, which it appears my sister, Lynn has too. I saw this joke on Pinterest.
