Speciatly Challenge #11 at PPC

Good Morning! Well this morning I am truly running a little late for posting but I have my DH and my wonderful kids out the door for work and school. What a crazy weekend but oh was it a fun one. Friday and Saturday my boys played in a volleyball tournament. They played hard and pulled themselves together after a few rule changes. I am so proud of them. My daughter got measure for her first Rhythmic Gymnastic costume and had a birthday party (which she loved). Enough about my weekend and onto why you really stopped bye.

Picture Perfect Creations
is onto a new Specialty Challenge #11 this week. Megan has given us a yummy theme. You can create something FALL or Halloween theme.

So on this card I broke out my other favorite tree stamp from Stampin Up. When shopping with my wonderful friend Lori we both picked up this pad of 6x6 pattern paper, that has rich and warm colors in it. I opened it up and used just a little bit of it...LOL.

I used the colors, early espresso, cajun craze, and more mustard and some pattern paper from a 6x6 pad of paper. A photo corner punch, 3/4, 1, 1 1/4 inch circle, label and one more punch?? (SU) and a punch from Martha Stewart. I used early espresso ribbon too. So the ribbon was to have a bow but when having a talk with Robin, I got glue happy and forgot to leave a space for it...LOL.

I am entering my card into the following challenges. All of the DT creations are very inspiring.

Paper Sundaes - Halloween or Fall
Cute Card Thursday - Tree-mendous
Make It Monday - Anything Goes

What does your Monday hold for you? Today I am going to finish up my laundry, and get caught up on my cards (so candles, music and a good cup of hot chocolate is in order). First in order I must get my breakfast and the laundry turned over.

Please stop bye and show us at Picture Perfect Creations what you this theme inspires in you! We love coming to see your blogs and enjoy just sharing in your creativity. So grab a cup of java and take some time for you during your busy week to create something fabulous.

Thanks for stopping bye and sharing my card with me.
