Monthly Challenge - September - Country Charm

Hi my friends. I am again playing catch up with my Monthly Challenge - Girls of the Bakers' Dozen cards. I have 2 more to showcase later, but wanted to get this one done. It is being sent to my daughter's mother-in-law who is recovering from surgery for colon cancer. Her story is the spotlight on Teapot Tuesday this week.  She went through months of chemo and radiation to get her ready for the surgery. We are all praying that all of this will lead to remission or cure.  I hope you'll come along and join in the fun.
The September Challenge kit came from Suzy (SuzyZ1104 on Splitcoast Stampers) and all the embellishments were included in the kit. I just had to add the cardstock.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Stampin Up - Country Charm
  • Sentiment - Hero Arts - Thinking of You (I love this stamp set and use it quite often)
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Crushed Curry
  • Designer Paper - The Paper Studio

Witch! OSAAT #248

Good morning my friends!  How's the weather where you are?  I hope it's as nice as it is here in H Town.  I think we're finally getting our Fall weather. Summer has hung around not wanting to leave with temps in the 90's. I don't look forward to the Winter cold though. I've been overwhelmed the last couple of weeks putting together 2 Power Point presentations that I presented yesterday at a Family History Fair. I've never done one like this where I had to do screen shots and then drop them in the Power Point program. I'm just so happy that it's finally over and done with and remind me never to say Yes again! ;)  Well, it went fine and the attendees did learn something so it was all good in the end.

On to the business at hand and that is we have a new challenge from One Stitch at a Time. The Theme is Anything Goes with Halloween Colors!  Such fun. I chose to go to the simpler side of creating this time.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Ken Benner - Witchbroom
  • Sentiment - Puff Boo from my stash
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Basic Black
  • Designer Paper - Authentique - Enchanted Collection
  • Accessories - Stampin Up Ribbon - Tangelo Twist
  • Copic Markers: E23, E25, E29; T6, T8, T10; V12, V15, V17; YG0000, YG01, YG21; YR04, YR05, YR16
Again our fabulous sponsor is Stitchy Bear Designs

And the prize should you take part and be chosen as the winner is the October Prize Pack.

I do hope you'll hop on over to the challenge blog and play along with us this fortnight. You could be the winner of this lovely Fall prize pack or be chosen as one of the Perfect 3! 

That's it for today. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
