Challenge #480 at Shopping Our Stash is Leaf Me Alone so we want to see Leaves on your project. I did some shopping my stash when I used some photo papers that I bought at a yardsale for 50 cents, they work great for alcohol inky backgrounds. Now my IO die set has been in a drawer for hmmm over 4 years never opened never used until now. First here is the inky sheets I made.

How can it be the 15th of September already? Wasn't labour day just a few days ago? Fall has been beautiful but sadly by the time the October challenge arrives I will have closed the cottage and all my time can be spent in my craft space. My new to me desk i
working out great, it needs organizing but when I make a card I put it on the top shelf (keeps it safe from "paws") Since it is the 15th of the month it's a new challenge at A Tiny Craft (ATC) Challenge and the theme is SNARKY!! I paired stamps from Riley & Company with Chris's sentiments from Stamplorations, added cardstock layers an embellishment and voila they are done.

It's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash #479 Hey (h) Ombre, there are a few ways to do an Ombre effect on your project as you will see when you head over to the main blog, paper, ink blending, paint chips, you can do a background or use the technique on your image. I went the easy way as my plan "A" didn't work, but as with all crafters I have saved my "fails" and will use them, I even have ideas but it just wasn't working for me today. So plan "B" I dug through my stash and found some ombre glitter paper and made a Gah Pink Christmas card.

Summer is winding down and my time at the lake will be put on hold for the winter, it's nice to have a change of scenery for the summer and I love taking the pictures down at the break wall. Well this week I didn't get done in time to use the lake as a backdrop, in fact I think I left my camera there and I have no recollection of packing or not packing it. I have been toting a bag of things back and forth so when the end of September (I have to close early this year) comes I won't have 5 boxes of supplies there. I still haven't managed to make up kits to take so I have everything I need as this past trip I took Christmas patterned paper pads but nothing to make the birthday card with. Without further adieu here is the challenge graphic.

Since I lost a week somewhere along the month and since I didn't get a card made for Shopping Our Stash Back to the Books challenge I decided to finish what I started and make it a reminder post. The Challenge is Back to Books which means anything school, books or use a book page. I picked a favourite stamp store, House Mouse Designs, I didn't make a card I altered my date book which is something I usually do when I first buy my purse size date book but when I saw the challenge I knew I wanted to get 'er done.

I was working on the slimline cards for the challenge last weekend at the cottage but there were more pressing items to craft. I'm hoping I can get my mojo back. I have a new crafting desk which of course is not organized as well as it should be, it will take some time to find the right spots for things. It has a hanging file folder drawer that holds my cardstock scraps. Now on to my second mini slimline card for the Jingle Belles challenge.

Hello and I hope you are having some sunshine where you are, it's a gloomy, rainy, overcast day in SWO it just means I get to make my own sunshine. And that I did by getting a card done for the Jingle Belles Rock. I haven't managed to find time to make any for the challenge for a few months....gasp, now I'm going to be short when November comes. I do like making Slimline and Mini Slimline cards and the die I used works perfect for one.

For the Ode to Lindsey theme at A Tiny Craft (atc) challenge I looked through her posts and found that with most challenges she dug through her stash of inky backgrounds so that was my starting point, she also liked to use die cuts. Although difficult to go through her blog yet again it was a lovely read, her blog posts were always interesting, comical and informative. I decided to try a drink die I've had in my stash and I might have used it or maybe not.
