Joan's Gardens Challenge and more

Happy Tuesday Everyone!  

This week's challenge over on Joan's Gardens was a tricky one for me but finally I found time to "put my brain in gear" and here's what I've come up with. 

 (click on image to enlarge)
 The challenge was to use the following:
  • Paper - plaid, polka dots & stripes
  • Pearls or Rhinestones
  • Circles
  • Sentiment for any occasion

I have placed my sentiment on the inside of my card ... here's a peek:
If you've not been to Joan's Gardens, you are missing out on not only a FUN weekly challenge but some AWESOME deals on crafting products!  Joan has a full line of up-to-date papers, stamps & accessories that you really need to check out!  Just like the Glue Glider Sale she just had ... buy one refill get the second for $1 ... see what I mean!!  Now pop on over and see what Joan has that will help enhance your crafting experience!! 

Here's another Delicious Doodles creation I promised to share with you!

Again I have used the Pumpkin Corner image ... but this time I have printed it directly onto my card front in a little larger size ... with the thought of only embellishing one corner.  My sentiment comes from a set put out a year or so ago by Carolyn King and the burlap dp is from JoAnn's.

Pretty easy peasy but makes for a wonderful creation!   Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope your day is filled with joy & laughter!  MINE will be filled with running errands and hopefully some crafting!!  I haven't been in my crafting cave since last Thursday and believe me I'm starting to think I'm going into withdrawal!  LOL!  Have a great day!!

Hugs to you all,


  1. KWYM about the withdrawal. Haven't made a card for DAYS!!
