#TGIFC130: Sweater Weather Scrapbook Page

This week, I will not be late in participating in this challenge! The challenge at TGIF Challenges this week is a theme - sweater weather. I've had this fall scrapbook page in my head for awhile, and of course I used all of my favorite fall products to create it!

What do you think? These pictures are from a visit to the pumpkin farm last fall. We're planning to go again this year, but it just won't be the same when it's still close to 90 degrees outside...

Fall Notecard for #TGIF129 Challenge

Have you ever had one of those days where you are just a step behind on everything? We had friends visiting for the past week, and it was so great! But I am low on sleep, and my brain is taking the brunt of it. I forgot to brush my daughter's hair this morning. I went to the store for milk and bread, and forgot the milk. I created an awesome card for the TGIF Challenge this afternoon, and then went to load it only to discover I was a day late. Oops. I think going to bed early tonight is a must!

Since I am kind of in love with this card, I'm going to share it with you anyways. Here is the sketch that inspired it:

And here is the card:

I am still loving all things fall, even though the temps here are continuing to creep towards 100 every day. So I'll have a few more fall projects to share with you, and then I promise we'll get to Christmas!

Stamps: Tabs for Everything
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Soft Sky, Whisper White, Wood Textures DSP, Painted Autumn DSP
Accessories & Tools: Burlap Ribbon, Copper Trim, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot

Quick & Easy Thank You Cards

I've got a clean and simple card for you today, and this layout can be used with any Designer Series Paper and ribbon that you'd like!

I think my favorite is the one with the Wood Textures DSP and Copper Trim. I used the 'Thank You' from the Daisy Delight stamp set, but any greeting would work. All of these Designer Series Papers (and more!) are on sale Buy Three Get One Free this month! Shop here and pick out your favorites!

These cards are stamped on a standard size card base, 5 1/2" by 8 1/2". The Whisper White mat is 3 3/8" by 4 5/8", the Designer Series Paper is 3 1/4" by 4 1/2", and the greeting is stamped on a 1" by 3" piece. The little banner underneath the ribbon is 1" by 3/4". I used my Paper Snips to trim the banner end.

Stamps: Daisy Delight
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Be Merry DSP, Delightful Daisy DSP, Birthday Memories DSP, Wood Textures DSP Stack
