Challenge #456 at Shopping Our Stash is Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice. Since it's October we want to see Fall, Halloween Pumplins Jack-o-lanterns or Pumpkin Spice coffee (yuk) Etc. Lot's of choices and I had trouble deciding what I was doing, I had way too many "irons" in the fire but picked a Halloween theme.
I decided to give another try at a Mini Slim line card, 3 1/4 X 6 1/4 inches, of course I used a house mouse image of Maxwell trying to out run the garlic. I added a few spinders for interest,, Patterned paper is from DCWV 4 1/2 X 6 1/2 Midnight Sjpell Halloween pad I bought years ago when Winners had great deals in crafting things.

Challenge #455 at Shopping Our Stash is.......Musical Notes, we want to see musical themed projects. Not many of my friends, followers and family will get the header, if you remember let me know the band leader's name. I did have fun with this card first I googled music cards and it didn't have a link to it but I pretty well cased it. Getting towards the end of September I packed up things that I figured I wouldn't need, it will only be a few more weeks until I close for the winter. Even after I'm done I will be making several trips to bring all my crafting supplies and things from the pantry cupboard home, next where do I find homes.
- This was an easy card to make (with the exception of the planning of circles) Since I was embossing the white layer (a cuttlebug dot folder eorn old) I wanted to stablize it by backing it with black, I think B&W is just classy. the music layer is from Stamp'in up and I have had it a few years. Since I am not versed in "music" say the "line of notes" is elevated with some clear dots. The small music notes are from Die-namics. The sentiment is from Hero Arts (2003)
- I cut 2 of the music dies with heavy 100 pound cardstock and glued them together and added some clear dots to elevate it,

Hello and welcome to the second monthly challenge for A Tiny Craft Challenge.
For September the theme is Fall/Autumn which is appropriate for this time of year. The nights are getting cooler and the days are so much more comfortable than in August. For this challenge I made a quartet of Autumn leaves and colours.

Cookies for Santa is the theme at the Jingle Belles Rock Challenge. it is an inspirational picture, now usually I don't go for them as there are usually too many things to pick from and I can't decide on which way to go with it but this time it was easy here is the photo.

Oh my goodness it's September where oh where has Summer gone? As much time as I can spare I have spent Summer at the cottage, I try to do my crafting there, unfortunately sometimes I'm missing a major part of the card I'm doing and have to wait until I get home, drawback is I don't get to use the lake as a backdrop.
Here is Edna to introduce our newest challenge.
For the next two weeks at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers it's P is for Paper Piecing so get those fussy cuting scissors out and paper piece us a challenge project. I have a couple of go to images that I paper piece when it's called for but I decided to try a new one. Although it's a cute image, not a whole lot of paper piecing was involved but the way my week was going it's a darned good job.
I chose another Art Impressions girl again, but of course a different one and I'm not sure I have ever inked it before. I dug out a Spellbinders Opulent Ovals die set and Nellie's Multi Frames ovals to do the die-cutting. The accompanying sentiment was cut with a Stampin'up word bubble die.
Close up of the sentiment which was part of the "One to Brag" set.
The inside was finished with a few scraps and a Studio G sentiment from the $1.50 bin at Michels
I'm adding this to:
Seize the Birthday ~~ #222 Anything goes (the topping is Pastel)
Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to head over to the MAIN BLOG and see what paper piecing the rest of the design team and our reigning Queen Rachel have made.
