Happy Friday! I'm posting a bit later tonight; it's been a super busy day! I took the kids to the library today and they each picked out some books and a movie. I usually take them once a week and they really enjoy it. My older daughter handed in a volunteer form and she hopes to be able to volunteer on Saturdays. I'm secretly hoping that they call her because she really needs something to do, plus I'm thinking it will teach her some responsibility.

Earlier today I saw a blog challenge. The challenge is on Sheila's blog and it was to create a card using fall colors. This is my very first blog challenge, so I'm hope that I am doing this correctly. The stamp set she is offering was our inspiration piece for our card. Once I saw the cat image in TAC stamp set I right away thought of this image that I have.

I decided to use the cat in the pumpkin stamp from SU's A Haunting We Will Go. I came across this pattern paper and I decided to use those colors for my card (Really Rust, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, and White). I stamped my image using Black Stazon ink and its colored using Watercolor crayons and a blender pen. The Pumpkin Pie card stock layer is embossed using my Cuttlebug and Pumpkin Harvest embossing folder.

I ended up adding some sponging along the white base layer, it just seemed too white to me. My sentiment is from a Studio G fall stamp set (series 20). I also did some paper piercing in each corner of my main image. I also used an EK Success border punch, and large & small oval punches on my card. My ribbon is from Offray and the brads are SU.

I'd like to say thank you to Sheila for an opportunity to win an Angel Co. stamp set. I don't have any TAC stamp sets, so I'm crossing my fingers....he....he!
