Ann Schach hosted a recipe challenge at The Paper Players this week. Using her ingredients of designer paper, a punch and a sentiment I created my signboard using Stacey's Curtain Call Act 53 Colors of Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. This also works for Connie and Mary's Halloween Theme (CCMC122). So break out the black hats ladies and have a great Halloween weekend!

Remember when shiny silver Christmas trees were so chic and modern? Now they are so chic and retro! I embossed the tree from Holiday Happiness in silver and added bling to the branches since Pals Paper Arts challenged us to "Bring on the Bling!" Then I found a lovely angel hiding in the set Friends Never Fade. Some more silver embossing and that angel was ready to be the "star"!

The inspiration photo at Pals Paper Arts this week is downright gorgeous! Beautiful colors, beautiful sweater, beautiful smile...........this gal seems to be enjoying life for sure! So this sentiment just seemed to fit her mood! I stamped a background of fall colors using French Foliage and actually did a bit of tearing and smudging. That's a whole new world for me...........Imagine the possibilities!

A friend of mine who knits spotted these knitting needles made out of toothpicks on Deb Valder's blog. (I haven't found the original designer - help?) And being such a good friend she made a set, cast on a few stitches and delivered it to me. I added Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Jolly Holiday DSP and the image from Hand Knit and followed the sketch from Connie and Mary. The sentiment is sweet but actually it's my friends that keep me from unraveling.......................

It's dark..........it's raining......the furnace is running.........oh yes the Northeast is headed to the dark side for the next few months. So I went with the darkness when I put together this card for the Paper Players' monochromatic challenge. The Mojo Monday sketch worked perfectly and now I am off to turn on a light. There's a quilt, an easy chair and a brand new novel calling my name.........it's not all bad........
