Fall Fun and Wee Memories Challenge Sponsor

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! Yesterday we went to Chudliegh’s Apple Farm we had so much fun! I’ll share some photos with you at the end of this post but first I’d like to let you know about DT member Jenny’s awesome Wee Memories challenge blog which I just happen to be sponsoring this week! YAY!

The challenge this week is SOS – String, Orange, Scallop. You must use at least 2 of these on your project. My card was inspired by all the fun we had yesterday with the pumpkins at the apple farm…

I’ve used Dale’s Whimsy Pumpkins and Moved Sign for this card but decided to not ink up the word ‘moved’ and put the ‘fall fun’ sentiment from Fhiona’s Fall Fun Sunflower instead. I also was so excited to finally use my Divine Twine that I picked up at Bonnie’s Reasonable Ribbon web shop! I now why it’s called Divine Twine and I’ll be going back to her shop for all the colors!!!
Be sure to hop on over to the Wee Memories Challenge blog and play along for your chance to win some YNS stamps! Plus Jenny has a discount code posted on her blog for you to use at the YNS store!
Ok so before I go here are some pics from our super FUN day yesterday!
YUMMY! Me pick, Me eat as Brandon would say!
Fun feeding the animals
Brandon really wanted to pick up this huge pumpkin
The pumpkin won the battle!
So mommy helped…
This is what happens when they have candy at the checkout and your kid is tired after a fun day at the farm…
he tried to eat it all but we didn’t let him! LOL
Have a great day!

I used quite a few different stamps so I’ll list them for you…

YNS Challenge #25

===
Happy Wednesday!!! Today is YNS Challenge #25 – YIPPEE!!! Our super talented hostess is Sylvia and she has asked us to Give Thanks!!! You can make a Thanks Giving card or any style of Thank You card.

I had lots of fun playing with the new Fall image Autumn Greetings. I just love this leaf frame and it was so much fun to color! I guess you could say my card is more an Autumn card but my designer paper has Give Thanks on it so I hope that counts :o))) and yes I got out my new most favorite paper pad for this card – Apple Cider…these papers are fabulous and I love that it comes in a 6×6 paper pad! The additional acorns stamped with the sentiment are from the Fhiona Friend Squirrel set which is sooooo adorable!

I hope you join us for our Give Thanks challenge for your chance to win some YNS bucks! Hop on over to the YNS Challenge Blog to check out all the details!

Thanks Silvia for this wonderful challenge! I’m off to play with the new Copic X-press it paper which is the most amazing paper ever…I’d say it’s a cross between Simply Smooth and Neenah and I love both of those! Plus I’ve been having lots of fun playing with the new Embellie Gellie! Never again will I dump out a whole container of gems or baubles to find the one I’m looking for…this little handy tool fits right into the jar and allows me to pick the one I want….it’s awesome!!! Yes, simple things make me very happy :o)))

Have a wonderful day and Happy Stamping!

Since I don’t have a card to show you here is one by my friend Lora for you to see…she has used the new Copic paper for this card along with the adorable stamp Ethan out on the pond :o) I think this card is fabulous!!! Thanks for sharing it with me Lora!

Also you ladies asked for it so I got it!!! Embellie Gellie is here and I love it!!! This little tool is perfect for adding those embellishments to your projects! Check out all the details over at the YNS store.
