A little Shabby Chic, A little Sassy & A touch of FALL!

Hello my friends and welcome to another WEEKEND!!!
I tell you ... these weeks are just FLYING BY!!
It's gotten down right 'chilly' here in NE Ohio and you can certainly feel FALL in the air!

Today I'd like to share a couple of cards with you.  First is the card I created for the fun Dare To Be Sassy challenge over at Sassy Studio Designs ... which is SHABBY CHIC.

I've had this sweet 'Cinderella PinUp' image colored and on my worktable for a while now and thought she'd work nicely for this challenge  (what do you think of her fishnet stockings??  LOL)

Papers:  Ivory cs, Pink cs
Accessories:  Marianne LR0236 dies, Marianne LR0157 dies,  Cheery Lynn Designs B117S Fanciful Flourish die, Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps (bird panel & musical wings), Jambo adhesive back lace, Embossalicious 'petite dot' embossing folder, Darice flowers, Stickles, xPress It foam mounting tape, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers

OOPS ...forgot to share the closeup!

The second card I'd like to share is a 2nd entry for the challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week's challenge requirements are:
  • Include Leaves on your card
  • Fall colors
  • Tree and/or bird
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens. Also, mention that you are doing the card/project for Joan's Gardens Challenge.
This card was a lot of fun to create.  
If you saw my first entry for Joan's challenge then you know the process I used for the leaves.  I once again dipped into my scrap bin for the background papers (really trying to use up as many scraps as possible!).  My trees were created using a Stampscapes rubber stamp (Tree Trunk Trio - 088F) and Ranger 'coffee' Archival ink.  These cute birds are from brown cardstock and the Impression Obsession 058-N die.  My Fall Colors sentiment is an OLD Inkadinkado set and I've used Tim Holtz Red Barn/Memento Bamboo Leaves/SU More Mustard for the colors.

I would also like to add this to the Stampendous Impressions "Fall Fun"  challenge.

Well I hope you've enjoyed seeing my card creations for today!  I gather SO MUCH inspiration from all of you out there in blogland that I just hope you find a little inspiration from my work as well!

I have two craft shows coming up so I'd better get off the computer and get busy creating!  
Busy! Busy! Busy!

Have a fabulous weekend and as always . . .
