Here's my second entry for the Whimsie Doodles Challenge Tag You're it!

I just love this image from Whimsie Doodles. Well... ALL the images from Whimsie Doodles to be honest. She is such an adorable fall fairy!  I don't think there are enough cute fall images out there and this is the first fall fairy image I have seen.  Love it!  You can find her here!  Of course, I pulled out my great K & Company papers (happy trails) for this card.  The tag on this card is just the little tag with the acorn on it...  sweet!

Autumn, beautiful Autumn

Good Afternoon fellow crafters...

Autumn is in full swing here so I made a fall card using the color changing leaves that are all over the place here as a jumping off point for my card.  I used an image from Tiddly Inks that was made I think meant as a spring image but I changed it to a fall image.

I like having multiple uses for my images...

I created the background on this card using a basket weave effect.  The final look is so cool but easy to create.  You just cut three different sheets of cardstock into strips and weave them together to create this basket weave look.  Using a backing cardstock helps to stabilize the woven strips.  Then cut to the size you need.

Spellbinders - nesting maple leaves

Whimsie Doodles Christmas Tree

The Whimsie Doodles November challenge is Tag You're It and I wanted to use a few of their wonderful images to make my entry for this challenge.

Since it is getting so close to oh... dare I say it,  Christmas.  Whow, I can't believe we really are already so close to Christmas.  It seems I was just outside in the summer sun enjoying the warm weather with my family. So for my project I made a Christmas tree ornament using a silhouette tree die cut.

I used the whimsie doodles Christmas gift tag, gift box, hiding elfling,

 and candy cane elfling images on this project.  Check out these images and more at
