As scheduled, here's the December challenge. The challenge is to make a holiday card using a non-traditional holiday colour scheme. Here is my submission:
Most of the products used are PTI except for the ink palette which is a Big 'n Juicy in Fall Foliage, the background which was letter pressed with a Spellbinder Impressibility (Flourishes?) and the sentiment which is SU.
Hopefully you can find the time to play along amidst all the holiday preparations.

The challenge is to create anything (card, scrapbook page, paper craft) with stamps/dies you have NEVER used before. For me, it was the "All Booked Up" stamp set and "Book Print" impression plate. The details can be found on my blog. Have a great weekend, gals!
Edited to add photo, now that Blogger is being more cooperative.
Once again, I waited to the last minute to do the September challenge. For some reason, Blogger won't let me add an image. I tried last night and again now. So you'll need to click over to my blog to see it. If anyone knows any tricks about Blogger, send them my way. Thanks to Pat for the challenge.

I was looking for some unusual fall-feeling colors when I saw this ad from Macy's several weeks ago. In addition to the colors, I also liked the variety of elements here - flowers, diamonds, birds. Lots to inspire (hopefully)!
And here's a closer look.
And the color pallette? I see Plum Pudding, Ocean Tides, Terracotta Tile, Orange Zest, Kraft and white in the inspiration picture.
Care to play along? You have all month. And maybe it will be cooler by month's end.
You can check out my card on my blog. http://pat-commonthreads.blogspot.com/

Today is the grand opening of my brand new ETSY shoppe: It's in the Bag!
The shoppe features all the cute little bags needed to present heartfelt & handcrafted gifts in a special way. To start, I've got 3 different sizes of glassine bags, 2 different sizes of white paper bags, and 2 colored paper bags. And because I'm not out to be a millionaire *yet - wink*, you'll find that my prices are competitive and in some cases lower than what you'll find elsewhere.
Come check me out sometime; oh and I've already got new product coming in next week.
Hope you're all well!
