Nothing makes me happier than crafting.  I love days when there is actually nothing to do and I have time to work on cards for challenges.  Today I have 3 cards to share with you.

First up is a card I made for CR84FN 39 and I combined it with this week's CASE Study Challenge 59:

Beautiful colors perfect for this time of year.  Here's my card:

My cardstock, ribbon, stamps, and die cut are Papertrey Ink.  Patterned paper is Authentique.  I used a Fiskars Scallop Punch and my button is Crate Paper.  My bow refused to be tied the other direction, so I let it be. 

Up next is this week's challenge from The Shabby Tea Room - Chevrons:

And we were also asked to use the colors BLUE, GREEN, ORANGE, CREAM AND BROWN.

I used some pretty Peebles patterned paper on this card and Papertrey Ink stamps.  And of course I added Stickles for shine!

OK last card for the nite, I combined Mojo Monday sketch 208:

With Colour Q Challenge 104:

And threw in the Ribbon Carousel Challenge 22:

And here's what you get:

My patterned paper is My Little Shoe Box.  I used Core'dinations and Papertrey Ink cardstock.  I also used PTI stamps and die cuts.  I made my rose from Mays Art ribbon. 

So I'm out of challenges, you're probably happy, hehe!  I do have a farm picture to share with you that might make you smile! 

Goats are all business at meal time!  This is our view!  They get choked, burp, and you can imagine the other things that go on while their eating.  The bigger guys always eat on the right side of the feeder and the smaller ones on the left, plus they each have their own space cut out to minimize fighting!  As you can see our goats are very overweight!  None of them are pregnant, so it's all chub.  Ifyou're looking for a laugh, go to Awkward Family Photos.  Believe me, you'll be happy you visited!
