This is the first time I've used the same card for two very different things - Inventory Reduction Challenge and the October Mingle. I didn't have enough time to make two cards this week and still get everything else done around the house.
The twist for the Mingle this month was to send snowflakes of any type or kind along with your card. The snowflakes I sent were on ribbons, punched out, embossed, and stickers. I just am not ready to think snow and winter. So my Mingle card had a fall theme. Taaa daaa:
This is my first attempt to make a Criss Cross Card. I will reserve judgement until I've made a couple more. The Inventory Challenge theme for the week was Create a Tag or Tag card or Card with a Tag. So I guess the sentiment is on a tag.
Sweet Christmas Tilda is from the brand new Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. She is sitting on a punched fence - Martha Stewart Garden Trellis - with the top scalloped edge cut off. Brown felt rick rack covers the bottom edge of the card where the criss crossed edges don't meet neatly.
Tilda is sitting in front of a Lacy Square die cut with my Nesties.
The designer papers are from Stampin' Up!
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, JoAnn's and Hooked on Crafts.
The tag insert is SU Very Vanilla cardstock stamped with the Fall Background stamp and colored with Copics. The Moon is in the upper corner. Lap Tilda is sitting on a log by her Jack-O-Lantern, probably waiting for Edwin again. Is that boy ever on time for anything?!?
The Jack-O-Lantern is an MS embossing punch. Not sure if you can see the embossed lines on him or not.
Now for the cutest pictures from the real punkin patch in our garden!
That little cutey in the back is my great granddaughter Dakota Jane. The little heart breaker in the front is our neighbor's little guy Gavin. They each got to pick out a punkin from our patch.
I hope you have enjoyed the seasonal card and pictures!
I am just not ready for the cold and snow that New York winters bring.
Be sure to stop by my team mates' blogs to see what they made for gorgeous tags.
I'm so glad you stopped by! Leave a little love! See you again soon!
