Happy Monday!

Good Morning! I hope that today finds you well. It's the start of a new week. I see outside it is bright and shinny - and COLD. I'm not sure but I think that the temp was 30 this morning. Really not too cold, but cold considering we were just in the 70's last week!!
This weekend was the start of hunting season, so we know what hubby was doing! Yes, he did go hunting - and yes we have the dehydrator running as I type. The house smells good. He's off for a couple of weeks so I'm not sure how much I will get done. We've only been married 3 years, so we still like to spend time together Ü
So you want to see what I've been up to? This weekend I made a few more Fall cards and some place card tags. I thought that they might sell at the Peddler's Mall so why not try.

I'm sure that you've seen this image before. I've used this for many cards over the years, it's one of my favorites!! The stamp is from Great Impressions and the sentiment is from Print Works. I stamped the image and colored it with my watercolor crayons. I then sponged Really Rust around the panel and layered that on to a piece of Creamy Caramel. The base card is Chocolate Chip and I layered that with a piece of Really Rust and a piece of DP from Daisy D's. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip on to a scrap of Creamy Caramel and layered on to a piece of Really Rust, then I adhered it to the card with pop dots. I really like that DP, I think that it makes the whole card. Don't you?

This card started one way and ended up off to the edge of my table. Have you ever started a card, put the first layers down and then ended up with something that just did not work? I was so frazzled. Well, the next day I thought that there was something that had to be done with it. So I picked it up and the first thought that came to mind was "Happy Fall Ya'll". Well I stamped out the images, colored them with my watercolors and it worked out ok, I think.

The base card is Chocolate Chip. I covered it with some DP that once again is not marked on the back so I don't know who it's from - and Creamy Caramel. The image panel I sponged with Really Rust and layered on to a piece of Really Rust. All in all, I think it turned out ok.

Now ~ I want to show you the place cards that I made for the Peddler's Mall.

I think that they turned out nice. I used one of the SU! Top Note Die cuts in Chocolate Chip. I just folded it in the middle. I added the sentiment with Versamark and tied a length of ribbon to it. I then punched out a piece of Really Rust with my Mega Scallop punch and added a piece of white cs that I cut with my coluzzle and sponged Really Rust on to. I added the brads to each side and a small acorn stamp and I was done. I think that they turned out cute!

I'm off for now! I've got to go post my challenge over on Paper Wings. Stop by there sometime and see all the great work that the fellow TAC angels have made with the great products from The Angel Company!!

Have a great (and warm) day!
