There is Still Time!!


Hello my friends, hope your week is going well, I am so loving the cooler temperatures, sunshine and beautiful Fall colors. I have been cleaning this morning, but wanted to get this card up to remind you that there is still time to play along in our DPDC17 challenge  this month, it is open through the 24th at 8:00 PM Central Time. You will receive Laurie's new set "Quirky Penguin" just for entering the challenge. I actually created this card for September, but never did get it posted, better late than never I guess. I am using topiaries from "Topiary Seasons" which has pots, topiaries and papers for every season. I loved coloring these and look forward to making something with all 3 of the others. Of course, I immediately thought of placing them next to a door. Mine was made by using a Spellbinders rectangle die to cut out my chocolate brown card stock and then placing a piece of Rubber Cottage card stock which was dry embossed with Tim Holtz's embossing folder behind it. Loved the way my brad looks like a door knob. I sponged a piece of card stock with distress inks and punched with two Martha Stewart leaf punches to make my wreath.


The beautiful sunflower design paper is part of Doodle Pantry's "Four Season's Papers". So please hop on over and check out this month's challenge and take part for your free set. Looking forward to seeing what you create.

I am also entering this at:
