Lazy October Days

Today has been a lazy day.  I got up bright and early this morning and cleaned house so I'd have the entire day free to do anything I like.  So as you can guess, I crafted!  There's so many fun challenges out there and I love taking part in them when I get the chance. 

First up is a card I did for 2 Sketches 4 You and The Shabby Tea Room.  This week the Shabby Tea Room is challenging us to do a vintage trick or treat card.  Here's mine:

I found this adorable little pumpkin picture in some of my Design Team stash so I finally put it to use!  I used Papertrey Ink Cardstock and My Mind's Eye Patterned Papers.  My ribbon and lace are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  My sentiment is Papertrey Ink.  And the cute little button is Jenni Bowlin.  I colored over the pumpkin picture with Copics to give it a little color.

I have another card I made for 2 Sketches 4 You with goodies from my Sampler Kit for October.  The kit is currently available at Scrapbooking Supplies R Us, take a look:

And here is my card I made with Echo Park and Jenni Bowlin goodies included in the kit plus a little ribbon:

Next up is a card I made for Card Patterns and All Things Unity.  This week All Things Unity's challenge is to make a card for kids:

I just love Unity and Ippity Stamps.  They are so darling and uplifting.  For this little card I stamped my tree and added buttons for fun.  I made my card with an older girl in mind with all the frilly pinks.  And I love the Bible Verse "Be Still and know that I am God."  What a perfect message for the busy world we live in now.  I think we all need to be still sometimes and know how wonderful our Savior is. 

Wanted to share a quick picture of my scrapbooking helper.  His name is Jake and he's all attitude:

He's always got his nose where it doesn't belong and tends to run straight for the camera when I have it out!  Look at those little ears!  I sure love this little guy.

Now on to some exciting news.  I found out yesterday that I've been picked to be on the Creative Charms Design Team!  Yippee, more embellishments to play with.  And I'm so honored to be on a DT with so many talented people!
