Halloween and Fall

Hello!! I've had so much fun just CREATING this long weekend. It was a much needed break from the everyday. Even though I've not been creating, I have had the chance to view so many exciting cards, ideas and projects from my Unity friends! I couldn't wait to share this Halloween card that I CASEd from Nora Anne at Robinson's Nest. I totally love her work and was excited to bring a creation inspired by her to life!

My next card was inspired by two unity challenges. The first was the Unity Addict's Challenge to use stamps from three different Unity sets together. I have to say it was a challenge for me. I LOVE how Unity stamp sets all match with each other, but three stamp sets challenged me. Of course, I really enjoy a good challenge! (I can hear certain friends of mine really laughing right now!) I am also entering this in the World Card Making Day Challenge to paper piece. I have fun paper piecing, so it is fitting that this is the first WCMD challenge that I am entering. I plan to do more!!

I made the last card just for fun!! I love this dp and the stamp set and needed to give it some stamp time. It is Mish-inspired to mix and match my dp.

I hope you've enjoyed these cards as much as I've enjoyed creating them. I've saved some to share with you later! Have a great day!!
