Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!

Please scroll down for my Stampendous Hop project!

It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to spend a few minutes creating a card JUST FOR A CHALLENGE!

this week is such a pretty layout!

I knew my wired burlap from May Arts would be perfect with this card!

And my older Lost & Found Christmas paper collection from
My Mind's Eye needed to be used to make room for this year's new papers!

I stamped and heat embossed the label from
"Rescue Remedies"
and stamped the little sentiment from
"Rescue Remedies Additions".

I have a friend who's husband just had to have a leg amputated due to diabetes related health issues. I have the nicest box of her favorite chocolates (yes, SHE can still eat them!) to take to her when I visit.  This card will compliment those candies perfectly!

A Poem for the Fall...

This is such a cool new image from

I love the look of this skeleton when he is heat embossed!

I simply trimmed and burned the edges to look like old parchment and then inked it all in Momento Rich Cocoa.
The tulle flower adds some softness, and the little owl?
Well, who doesn't love a tiny little charm?!

Here's a closeup of the way the embossing looks!
Isn't it amazing!
