I'm Back! And with a Fall Card!

Hi Everyone!  I have been away for about a month! Wow!  It's been a busy few weeks for me.  First we evacuated for Hurricane Irene, then we had to come home and clean up.  Then it was just getting back into routine.  Most recently, this week I got a job!  I'm very excited about it and I am able to work from home! Hope everyone else has been doing well!

Anyway, today I have a card inspired by the Fall weather that's starting to show itself.  I love Fall.  I love the colors, the cool breeze, the nice warm hoodies I get to wear...this list just goes on and on. So over at The Play Date Cafe, they happen to have Fall colors for their challenge this week so I went with that.  Here's the color scheme:

And here is the card I created:

Those beautiful sparkly leaves I found at Target in the dollar bins they have up front!  Amazing deal - they are foam stickers and there's 22 of them on the sheet.  The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Social Club line and the ribbon is from Ki Memories.  The stamp sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Up, Up and Away line (which I love, by the way). 

Also, another thing I wanted to mention today - if you're don't like May Arts on Facebook, you really should!  Not only do they share some wonderful projects and ideas, but they are constantly giving away free ribbon!  I won two contests were you name the ribbon and they pick a winner and send them a huge spool of that ribbon!  Here's what I got:

So this is a great reason to like them. That's all I have for today.  I'm planning on starting to work on a paper bag album over the weekend and maybe some more fall cards.  I have so many projects stacked up to work on!  What are you working on this weekend?  Whatever your projects are - happy scrappin!


  1. Congrats on getting luscious free ribbon! That's always fun. :) Your CAS fall card is so happy! You did a great job with our color challenge. Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe this week. :)

  2. I really like your card! It looks modern and it's very pretty. Don't you LOVE when you find stuff in dollar bins that doesn't look like it's from the dollar bin?? Great job!

  3. Fab CAS card, LOVE those glittery leaves, what a great find! :) Thanks for playing this week at the Play Date Cafe!

  4. Hi Stacy, I love your card. The colors beautiful.
    I too have so many projects going on, but fall and winter are my best times to get them caught up.

  5. LOVE the glittery leaves and that background DP goes perfectly with them. Thanks for playing along at The Play Date Cafe this week.
