I sorted the cards by occasion and worked my way through all but a handful. It was insane how many cards I had- and now have ready to mail out! Yippee! I even had some great cards for guys that just needed a sentiment to make them ready to send for all those guy birthdays. I am soooo happy!
Thanks for stopping by today!

This week I'm making even more fall cards when I take Katie's class on Thursday and then the following Thursday I'm saying good-bye to fall and hello to Christmas with my class. Hope to see some of you there! :)
Jack and I are going to "scare" up some fun here:

Happy World Card Making Day Everyone! Alas, I haven't made any cards today as we were out an about in Hampton, NH for unsuccessful antiquing. We did happen upon a great garden in North Hampton and a yummy restaurant in Portsmouth, NH and I do have some fall cards to share with y'all today!
These pumpkins are made with the same MME papers from this post with some additional papers from my scrap heap I've been working my way through. They are a little labor-intensive to plan & prep, but SO worth it don't ya think? :)
I've only posted 4 here, but the prep allowed me to have everything I needed to make 7. The pumpkins shape come from the pumpkin die by Papertrey Ink (which I've had for a couple years now and never used). Each patterned paper got run through to make the "ridges" and then I had to play "puzzle maker" to mix 'n match them. I only wanted to have one piece from each pattern per pumpkin (say that tongue-twister 10 times fast!). The leaves are also from a Papertrey Ink die.
I would totally make more of these- they were super fun! I'm so glad I finally broke out these pumpkin dies!!! I've got one more set of cards to show you this week using this same set of papers, so stay tuned! ;)
I'm taking my patch to party here:
Allsorts Challenge: Autumn colors
Sweet Stampin Challenge: Autumn is here
Simply Create Too: Autumn/Fall

and forgot about them. Well, how happy was I when I found them pulled them out this week!!!!
I'm so excited because all of the supplies were already in my stash, I have some Halloween cards ready, AND they are squeal-worthy cute. :) Wait until you see the cards I'm sharing on Saturday!!!! I showed everything to my DH yesterday and he actually said wow (that's a huge deal with us) and he thought they were all gold medal worthy (I always have him rank them with gold, silver, bronze. I'm a geek. I know. *smile*)
See you Saturday Peeps!!
