Crazy4Challenges 255 ~ Leaves

Happy Sunday! I am a day late getting my C4C post up, but here it is!!

Danielle is back with one last challenge for September. 

The leaves are starting to change color in the Northern Hemisphere as Fall/Autumn is upon us. So our challenge this week is to incorporate leaves or a leaf into your card/project.

I chose to go with a new set I bought just before I headed out to California for a few weeks. Love this tree and all of the things you can do with it. I used the colors again from this weeks SCS Color Combination Challenge. I love these colors together. I added some Wink of Stella to each of the leaves for a little glitz.

I just received some new stamps and dies from MFT yesterday and I have been oh so wanting to use the Light Bulb Dienamics and the Watts Up Sentiments. This was a super fun card to put together and I used the colors from this months MFT Color Palette Challenge.

Crazy 4 Challenges #252!

Happy Saturday!!
It is the first Saturday in September!! Can you believe it?? Another summer has passed me by....

It's time for the challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges! . Our new challenge hostess for the month is Danielle Lounds. I am sure you will love her challenges..

Yesterday was Danielle's Moms birthday and as she is still in the celebrating mood and since she is usually late sending birthday cards, she really needs a belated birthday card. Danielle wouldn't be the only one who needs a few of these in their stash of course I'm sure LOL! I still owe my brother a card for his birthday last month!
So our challenge this week is to create a belated birthday card.

I pulled out some MFT goods and played with some bright and fun colors.
Come on over and join in the challenges!

Find Joy

Happy Tuesday!
Hope you had a great holiday weekend! My Labor Day excursion was driving across the Golden Gate Bridge and then out to Half Moon Bay for a look at the Pacific Ocean.  Beautiful day!

My card is for today's SCS Color Combination Challenge~Wild Gray Melon
This is a fabulous combination and I decided my dessert would be summers last hurrah. I could have summer all year long! I do not like seeing fall and cold weather come my way. My inspiration for this card is one I had pinned on Pinterest here.
