Today I decided to try two different blog challenges.  But before I introduce you to them, I would like to share my card with you.  Here it is.........

I made this card as a standard A2 card.  Cut two (2 x 2 5/8) squares from patterned paper.  Used cricut cartridge George and Basic Shapes to cut the circles at 2 3/4 (green) and 2 1/2 (gold).  Added green twine, Rhinestones, stamped the word "fall" using Dew Drop - Lady Bug, and finished it up using glossy accents to a fall leaf from Ashland.


So now onto these two fabulous challenges: 

First, over at Ellen Hutson's CLASSroom, there is a wonderful challenge going on with GREAT candy for the winner!   Here is a sketch by Julia Stainton:

The second challenge that I chose to enter my card into is over at The Shabby Tea Room.  It is another  fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Melissa is their fabby shabby host and she has chosen the theme of 'A Shabby Autumn' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration ...

... and Melissa asks that you create a card or project inspired by the photo with an autumn or fall theme!  Easy peesy, right??!!??

Note: Because we are sponsored weekly by wonderful businesses who have graciously donated products and in the interest of fairness to all participants, any entries that do not follow our simple challenge rules will remain in the gallery but will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for your understanding and participation!


Finally, as a friendly reminder, if you haven't already done so.  Please don't forget to vote for me over at Practical Scrappers.   As always, your comments are greatly appreciated.  Have a wonderful Tuesday.......
