Brainwave Challenge, a RAK, and an award!

Was my title long enough? Geesh! This was a card I created for this week's BWC over at Treehouse Stamps. It was a color challenge. We were to use Pumpkin Pie, Apricot Appeal, Soft Sky, and white. These leaves are part of a new set, not yet released from Treehouse! Soon very soon! Since I was at Great America all day, I needed a quick card! I am getting the hang of more simple, quick cards! I stamped the 3 colors on Whisper White. I sponged the edges, used my scalloped scissors and layered the papers. I then added a white ribbon and stamped two more leaves. I cut them out and placed them on pop dots. I then added some crystal effects to make them more substantial!

I got some happy mail last week! I need to get my act together and post things right away, otherwise I forget! This was a RAK from Gwen over at SCS, otherwise known as tturtle. She sent this adorable card and some images for being the Featured Stamper a few weeks ago! It was such a pleasant surprise. Thanks so much Gwen!
I also received this award from Noel Mignon. I am honored and touched! I have to nominate more brilliant people...but I think everyone has been chosen! I will have to give this some more thought! I was tagged by several people over the last month. I know one of you was Abrah Leah Cross. (I hope I spelled your name right!) I feel terrible that I never posted your award! So for being such a bad blogger, please send me an e-mail. I have a little something, something for you ladies! From now on I promise to post it right away!

I love this fall card. With the heat we are having now and whats to come when school starts I sure wish it was fall weather now. We had an okay time last weekend, but I would have rather been with you guys, the waterpark was really babyish for my kids. After being at the Dells nothing compares.
Take care!
