Double Doozy

Hello, friends! I'm so very tired tonight as I have been teaching an early morning bible study class the past week for the youth of my church. I get to be up at quarter to five in the morning. It's dark and early! ;D BUT--it is so worth it!

Anyway, because of that, I am going to have to double up on a challenge. I am strapped for time! :) BUT--I have three cards for you and only one is the doubled up card. :)

The two challenges I'd like to enter my first card into are:

Here it is (I call is Autumn Inchies Postage)~

I love the postage card feel of this card! :) It was easy to create with my Stampin' Up! scallop square punch. You can't really see the glitter on the sentiment in this image, soooooooo

Here's a better one (not by much, I'm afraid)~

The squares of "stamp" were easy to create--I just stamped leaf images onto a 3"x3" paper, spritzed it with my color spritzer tool and then cut them into 1"x 1" pieces. Piece of cake...or maybe pumpkin pie. ;D

The next two cards are specifically for Make My Monday.

Card 2 (Trio Autumn Inchies)~

A close up of the details (just a bit of bling added)~

This is my CAS and Gratitude Challenge card for this post. :) I love CAS style and for more info on the Gratitude Challenge and some AMAZING examples of CAS in use, visit LateBlossoms awesome blog: Simplicity. She's a-ma-zing!

And Card 3 (Autumn Inchies Forest)~



Yep. That's patterned paper! I had a small scrap of one of my favorite patterned papers left over from something else and felt it looked autumnal! :) I added the bling because...bling is awesome! :)

So, there are my three cards for tonight! I hope to be back again this week, but I cannot promise anything. Quarter to five comes so incredibly early! I hope you play along with us on these fab challenges! Happy inching! ;D
