I used the MMSC 28 sketch and gave Frosty a home. The snowflakes in the corners were cut with the Cricut and painted with Shimmerz for extra effect. Thanks for looking!

Paper is from Debbie Mumm, leaves are from a Fiskars squeeze punch and an EK Success punch, I ran the red paper through my Cuttlebug, and the squirrel is from a blog I visited (http://dustinpike.blogspot.com/). His site often offer free digis, and they are very cool. I tried to incorporate lots of fall colors and themes - and the nuts are very cute. I love his chubby cheeks!

This time of year reminds me to be thankful for all the great things in my life, and to let go of the little things. BTW Jeff thank you for cleaning up the yard this weekend - it looks great!

I used the same digi stamp I used the other day from: http://lostinpaperscraps.blogspot.com/
I just love this Frankenstein image. Colored with Prismacolor markers. I cut him out using Scallopped Circle Nesties, embossing the purple layer. A little purple and black ribbon to top it off (or bottom it off in this case- haha)

Another challenge from: http://theresmagicintheair.blogspot.com/
Nina gave us another great digi - and it is very Fall inspired. I used my square scalloped nesties mounted on some sparkle paper I got for free at Archivers last year. (sorry the picture is not very straight)

Maddox made this card - he used the Cuttlebug Spiderweb embossing folder. We made the spider with a large scallop circle punch and photo corner punch (complete with gold fangs). I used the MS spiderweb border punch - at Maddox's direction, and he put some bug stickers on the web for the spider to eat.

This week's challenge involves using the digi "Harvest Geese" (perfect for the season) and using pop dots to make an element 3-D to "pop" I colored the image twice and I opted to pop dot the whole fence, the 2 pumpkins in the forefront, and as Nina mentioned in her blog ;) the goose on the right. I used my newly purchased Nestabilities to cut out the image, used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the background, and as finishing touches a strip of ribbon (purchased last year at Target in the dollar bins) and 2 leaves (punched using a Fiskars squeeze punch).

MMSC23. I made a card for Cooper for Boss's Day (Friday October 16th) He likes John Deere tractors, so I thought putting an image of one on his card would personalize it for him.

Nina offered a fabulous digi stamp - isn't he cute!
Besides using the digi stamp the challenge also required using a 3-D coloring element.
I opted for Stickles on the pumpkin in the Ghost's hand and on the grass at his feet. I tried something a little different and put some raffia behind it (like hay). Enjoy!
