Thinking of Fall


 Our sponsor this week for Penny's is Paper Creator  (the winner this week gets a £10 credit to the store)  and I just knew I wanted to use this fun image!

Noah's Autumn Leaves

 I don't have a lot of fall/autumn images and Noah is just too darn cute.  I also knew that I had some fun autumn DP in my stash that I received in a swap that I really wanted to use with it! Now this image is pre-colored because we all know my coloring skills leave a lot to be desired.


The sentiment is from a bunch of new goodies I received from Vicki Boutin.  They are from her fun line with American Crafts.  I punched out some maple leaves with my punch out of some of the DP and cardstock.   I also had a little yellow leaf that I got in a swap ages ago. I hope you like the card and be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you.

Bright & Beautiful

Hooray for Friday!  Weekend! So sad that we are down to our final weekends of the summer :(
Ok it's my team's week at Brown Sugar and our sponsor this week is

We have a really fun color challenge for you this week! Look how bright this is!! Just perfect for your summer projects!

So for my card this week, I dabbled in some watercoloring.  I say dabbled because I'm not very good at it, but it was fun to play!  I used my Sakura Create watercolor markers as well as some copics and a few of the distress oxide inks!
My DP is from My Minds Eye - an older collection called Notable.  I also just added a few little sequins for that pop of red.
I hope you will join us over on the blog this week.  Play along, let us see what you can create with these colors and check out what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!
