First up The Shabby Tea Room # 82 - A Shabby Autumn:
And the Ribbon Reel Challenge 12 - Autumn Elegance:
Plus this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge:
And here is my card:
I'm in love with this little card, hehe! My patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket and Authentique. My cardstock is Papertrey Ink. I layered 2 sheets of cardstock then added PP and inked all the edges with Martha Stewart ink. I used a doily, clothes pin, leaf, and ribbon from Etsy. My twine is PTI and leaf pin is Maya Road. I cut my patterned paper doily out with a PTI die and added a Melissa Frances rub on sentiment. Then I inked all edges with Tim Holtz Distress Stain.
Now I have an Autumn picture of my own to share. Hubby and Nephew decided to go hunting this morning, before dawn...and wanted me to come along. I am NOT a morning person, but for the chance to get some pretty Fall pictures I agreed to go.
I was so happy to see sunshine, the mornings are so cool and crisp. I even wore a camo shirt and hat. Not a bit stylish!
Now for some farm news. I took Brisco's stitches out today (remember he was neutered 10 days ago). We always assumed Boots, our female Great Pyrenees was infertile because she's been around other male dogs and never had puppies, so we've never had her fixed.
Well we're afraid Mr. Brisco might have left us with the ultimate gift before he was snipped! We're afraid Boots is gonna be a Momma, at 8 years old. Goodness help us, she will probably have 20 pups....they're BIG dogs. Anyone want a GP puppy for Christmas???
I also have a my giveaway winner - Debra from Easily Distracted Debra. Congrats!!! I sent you an e-mail. Enjoy!!!
