Thanksgiving Whipper Snapper Style!
I used Jen del Muro's sketch for this card. I just loved this sketch! The chocolate chip squares and circle were run through the swirls folder. I colored the images with copic markers and the little dog was cut out and popped up on dimensionals. He's so sweet! The dp is PTI's Autumn Abundance and I also used SU's new Dusty Durango cardstock and ribbon. I added gold to the buckles on the boy pilgrim with a Spica glitter pen.
The next card is a smaller 4.25" square. I wanted the cornucopia image to be the focal point, and it was too small to put on a larger card, so I just made it smaller! The dp on this card is from SU's Holiday Mini catalog and it's called Autumn Meadows. It has some really fabulous fall prints in it. I scalloped the edges with a border punch, and used scallop scissors for the sentiment. I added those fabulous glitter dots...I was lucky and had these copper colored ones. This card was done using Beate's Weekend Sketch. I don't know what I would do without all these wonderful ladies out there creating these sketches for me! I'm definitely sketch-challenged!
Thanks for staying with me for these two cards. I hope we're not rushing the holidays...but it's always great to get ahead! I'm going to have a Christmas card for you tomorrow, so watch for that one! We're having a blog hop for the Artful INKables new releases! Please join us for that! And I'll have another blog hop for you on Tuesday from Paper Makeup Stamps. I'm issuing a warning now...it's going to be a monster hop, so be prepared! LOL!! Don't forget to stop by the Whipper Snapper Feature Designers gallery on SCS to see all the cards the other guest designers have done with Anna's new releases! See you tomorrow!

My Time Inspiration Challenge
So today is Saturday and it's time for the My Time challenge. This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge, and it's being hosted by Kristin. This is the inspiration piece Lauren gave us.
I started with the Mojo Monday sketch for this month (I just realized my stripes should have been bigger...ugghhh!) and this retired paper from SU called Parisian Breeze. I chose the floral for the couch and background because of the floral pattern in the inspiration piece. I paper pieced the couch and stamped the pillows on the dp as well. The pillows are popped up on the couch for dimension. The scalloped border on the bottom is an EK Success punch (the ones that fold flat...love those). I seemed to have lost my mojo on this one...it just looks so plain or something to me! Maybe it's because I didn't use one copic marker or any **sparkle** on it! I think those two things are becoming my signature style!
If you want more inspiration, please stop by the blogs of the My Time DT. Here are the links.

A Couple of PMS Release Party Challenges
Anyway, on to the cards! I should have posted these earlier, but never got to it! The first challenge is a CASE of PMS. We were to CASE a card in the PMS gallery. I chose this card by mom2kjs. I just loved her layout. Here's what I did with it.I used one of the new Moody Girls stamps called Moody for Coffee that was released by Paper Makeup Stamps on Monday. Isn't this a beautiful image? I wasn't too crazy about these Moody Girls when Katie first showed them to the DT, but I have to admit that I am in love with them! They are so fun to color and are so different from other images out there! I used some new SU paper called Cottage Wall. Such pretty, rich colors!
The second challenge is the Paper Makeup "recipe" challenge. The foundation is this sketch.Then for the "powder" use some sparkle (glitter, stickles, etc.), for the "eyes" use buttons, for "blush" incorporate pink into the card, and for the "lips" use at least three layers. Here's my recipe challenge card. As you can see, I flipped the sketch. I used this pretty new fairy called Marissa. The sentiment is also from PMS. The dp is SU's Razzleberry Lemonade. I love these colors, too! This card is 5.25" square.
If you want to play in the challenge, you have until tomorrow, Saturday, September 12 to enter. Just upload your card to SCS/PCP and use the key words Paper Makeup Stamps and PMSRP14 for the CASE of PMS challenge and PMSRP15 for the recipe challenge. Thanks for stopping in today!

PMS Blog Hop and Release Day!
Today's the day for the new Paper Makeup Stamps release and blog hop! You should have arrived from Tina Hale's blog. If not, please go to the PMS blog and start there to get your information. You will be picking up letters along the blog hop which will give you a code to receive 15% off the new releases! Katie and Shaela also have a surprise goodie along the hop (which I don't even know about), so be on the look-out for that! So let's continue with the hop!
I've used a new fairy called Candy along with a new Halloween sentiment. (There are three other Halloween sentiments being released as well.) Isn't she so cute? She looks to me like she's sneaking the Halloween candy from the bowl! She's colored with copics and I added star dust stickles to her wings and hair. The sketch is from Beate's weekend sketch challenge, and it's a 5.25" square card. The dp is from a K & Company Halloween stack. The pumpkin is from this pack as well. I just cut it out with a circle nestie. I also added those fabulous glitter dots for more sparkle! I just love this card and all these great colors! Perfect for this cute little Candy fairy!
Now, my letter for you is "S". Your next stop on the PMS blog hop is the very talented Shaela Odd. I'm sure she has something fantastic for you (the DT has kept their cards a secret so that we can hop and see everyone's cards just like you are doing!). And don't forget to join us tonight at the Release Party in the PMS forum at 9:00 CST! Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
