The beginning of October cards to my Secret Sister.
Card inspired by one i've seen on Splitcoast Stampers. Used the top note die, oval punch and sponging to make the pumpkin. Part of a flower punch for the green leaves and I cut the stem free handed.
Stamp Set: Baroque Motifs (swirls on the green background)
Colours: Kraft, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
My turkey card turned out pretty well, a bit bigger than I anticipated.
Stamp Set: Pick a Petal
Colours: Kraft, Garden Gree, Real Ruse, Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red.

These are the cards that I have sent along to my Secret Sister during September.
Stamp Sets: Trendy Trees and Woodgrain.
Colours: Whisper White, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Real Rust, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa.

I got a great Thank-you card from my Secret Sister last round and she did ribbon weaving. I thought this would be a perfect idea to make a basket for the fall to use with leaves or pumpkins. I liked using the large and small ribbon in different colours. I think that the leaves would have looked really neat if I had used texture plates to give them a little extra.

Stamp Set: Jumbo Wheel Blessings
Colours: Ruby Red, Summer Sun, More Mustard, Dusty Durango, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this card! It may be my favorite one EVER! As you know I heart Sunflowers so when this card came together as well as it did I was beyond thrilled. I stamped the petals in Summer Sun ink on Summer Sun paper and just cut them out. Maybe next time I will try heat embossing with the same images using clear embossing powder to raise it up a bit. I used the small dot texture plate and sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges. This card was very hard to part with but I really have fun doing the Secret Sister and I hope that she likes it almost as much as I do :)
Stamp Set:Circle Circus and Pick a Petal

Another "me" card. I used a flower punch and layered them and used corduory buttons for the centers.
