Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #23

Hi Stamping Freinds!!

Fall has finally arrived in the Central Valley!!!  I actually could wear jeans this week.  And today I even wore "shoes" (that is anything with a closed toe, a.k.a., not flip flops!).  I love fall, so I was super excited to see the fabulous inspiration pics form the the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  My 5yo DS keeps asking when we are going to get out our "pumpkin patch" decorations.  After seeing these photos, I may have to do that this weekend.  If I can squeeze it in.  I was able to squeeze in a little stamping today, and actually made a card for the challenge (a little late, but it's least I got it in before the end of the day!).


Seems like every other card I'm making these days has a daisy or sunflower on it.  I love the daisy die for that.  I love the colors in the pics.  I chose to use Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Very Vanilla.  I added a few "falling leaves" with dimensionals.  I had to.  I stamped a little to aggresively on the top PP leaf and stmaped the edge.  I don't like messy stamping, so I had to figure a way to cover it up.  Remember, there are no mistakes in stamping... only reasons for extra creativity!  This fabulous sketch comes from my favorite online Stampin' Up! community... Stampin' Addicts.  Every Thursday they have a new sketch challenge.  This is last weeks sketch.  Come stop by and say hi.  It's a super friendly place.

I hope you are enjoying the start of the fall season in your neck of the woods.  Celebrate with me and play along with us this week at the Stampin' Celelbration Inspiration Challenge.  We would love to see your fabulous creations!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

It's been fall here in Wisconsin for a bit, but I love the pumpkin patch decorations. How fun! Love the card--very cool to have the black eyed susan along with the leaves.
