Simply Create Challenge no. 55




Good evening stampers. Super busy today as I am getting ready for Thanksgiving. I'll be having family in from out of state, so it will be fun but lots of work. My dd is great at chatting away the day...and night, but of little help on the mundane side...feeding a passel of folk and organizing the day to give them something to do. It will be work, but it will be fun too.

Now for my card. Simply Create is having its 55th challenge. Trish, our leader has asked us to be conventional and use pumpkins. But we have a sponsor, Jellypark, who graciously supplied us with this adorable little boy in a pumpkin costume. Isn't this a fun digi? I am just beginning to try to work with digi stamps. My dd taught me how to use Microsoft to re-size them. I don't think that is the program most people use, but it worked for me. The papers are from DCWV's Autumn Amber Collection, except the base which is SU's riding hood red. I colored with copics. Other items used are an MS border punch, Nestabilities die, bakers twine, button ,gems, and a black felt butterfly which was in a goodie package from a fellow SC Design team member....thanks Janet.

Well, I'm gonna try to get a few T-Day cards done and treat bags made before I abandon all card-making other than Christmas projects.

Happy stamping for the weekend.
Blessings,
Erica
