This is going to be a long post again - got three cards to show you!!
First up is
STAMPIN' FOR THE WEEKEND - AUTUMNAL COLOURS.
Now, it's my SECOND Halloween card ever, lol. The main reason I decided to go with Halloween theme is that Phindy has those breathtakingly cute Halloween cuties and of course I HAD to use one. Look at this card and tell me you have no idea, why! I dare you!
Colouring is done with Copic Markers and Prismacolour pencils. The papers are from OA, ribbon and lace from my stash. Those cool Halloween tickets are from digital set released by Whimsy Stamps yesterday. Made it a breeze to put this card together!!

PHINDY'S CHALLENGE - THE SKETCH CHALLENGE
We have a lovely and very easy sketch for you to try out with any of Phindy's images. The choice is fabulous so come on, have a go!
I used one of Phindy's newer images called Ta-Da!. Perfect for a standby baby card - I never have one when I need it!!
The colouring is done with Copic markers. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket Togetherness pad (7 Kids College Fund stocks Cosmo Cricket now. Is it wrong to get horribly excited about it??). The flowers are die cut from the same pad, inked and slightly shaped. And some pearls added. The punch I used is a deep edge punch from Martha Stewart.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - border punch
Little Red Wagon - make your own embellies
Wee Memories - make your own flower
Pile It On - Cute and Charming
Crazy Challenge - No ribbons or Buttons
Tuesday Throwdown - punch
Creative Card Crew - Bloomin Marvelous
And the last card is for
STAMP SOMETHING - CELEBRATE SOMETHING
Our sponsor this week is Sweet and Sassy Stamps who also gave us images to use. I coloured that cute mouse with Copic Markers and stippled the background with Memento inks and the very edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
The papers are once again from the Cosmo Cricket Togetherness pad - I feel an obsession coming on. Other that that it's very simple - just some Dew Drops and my beloved twill ribbon. I'm running short on that - any idea where to get some, girls??
