Plate Full of Poppies

Happy Saturday and Happy November!  It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away, but I say bring it on!  I love Thanksgiving and don't like to see it lost in between Halloween and Christmas.
 I am enjoying a long weekend so more time for stamping! This morning I played with a stamp I just bought; it is from Penny Black.  It was perfect for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers today.  Here is the Inspiration I used-

And here is my card-

This is such a fun image!  I also used Stampin' Up's Whisper White, So Saffron and Poppy Parade cs.  DP is also SU.  The image was stamped in SU craft black and embossed with clear ep.  It was colored with Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive using an Aqua painter.  The background image is sponged with Baja Breeze. I used SU's scalloped edge punch for the border and Tiny Tags paired with the jewelry tag punch for the sentiment. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog.  I will be back later as I stamp away my day!

Hello Everyone!  Back again with a card for a few more challenges.  Most importantly, it is for my father, who will be having surgery sometime in the next couple of weeks.   I have finally jumped in to the Queen for the Day Forum at SCS.  This week's Queen has a wonderful gallery and I chose to case this card.  What a great masculine card!  Here is my version-

This card is also for the ODBD challenge-masculine card-this week.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a blessed weekend!

Hello, again!  This is the last card for the night.  I feel like Christmas should already be here for all of the Christmas cards I have done!  This latest one is for the Merry Monday sketch.

As you can see, I turned the sketch again (I have a habit of doing that)! 

  I really wasn't sure how I was going to use my Snow Festival Christmas dsp with the village houses on it, but when I pulled this snowman out, it seemed a perfect way to make a snowy scene.  This card did not have a banner or ribbon feel to it, so I went with the wintry pearl flourish to blow in the snowflake. The snowman's (or woman's) scarf is paper pieced. 
Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog!
