CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #19

Can you say FALL?  Yep!  It's a FALL challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays!  And I am loving this A LOT!  I have been way too hot for way too long....sorry if I have complained at all.  But its been a hot one as many of you well know!  It is gorgeous here today and the smell of Fall is in the air.  This is my favorite season because my favorite outfit....sweatshirt and jeans...will be making a comeback!  :)

So here I am with my fall, paper piecing,challenge card....

The challenge this week is to use paper piecing in your fall themed CAS project!  And I have to tell you about my CAS card here.  It's pretty simple right?  Here's all the details. First off....Cardstock and paper from PTI.  Big Pumpkin is the large tree shape from Stamps of Life in the "trees2build" set.  Little pumpkin is actually an apple stamp from DeNami.  And the medium pumpkin?  Well I couldn't find a medium sized circle so that is actually a traced circle from a spool of twine.  Then of course that super cute sentiment is from Waltzingmouse!  And last but not least, some black twine from the Twinery!  5 companies all one one super simple card!  :)

Here is today's challenge...


Stop over to the CAS-ual blog!  I have seen the other fall creations and they amazing!  Our guest designer this week is Stacy Rodriguez so she will have a creation to share as well!  You can check out the prize for the week, too!  Our sponsor is Scraperfect!  Go and check them out!

OH and for those of you who asked about my blog...Yes!  It's a new look!  I went for the CAS look this time!  I did it all by myself too, so I was pretty excited!  I really appreciate you stopping by today!  All of your comments and emails always mean so much to me!  Have a great Friday!

  2. Another great card Laurie. Love the simple layout and the mix of papers. I'm with you on the whole ready for fall thing. I like hot but it's been in the 100's here and that's just a little too much.
