I just love the fall. It is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the colors most of all. I’ve been thinking about this challenge for the past few weeks, and realized that my challenge also fell during the week when SCS was doing a tribute to breast cancer awareness.
With that in mind, here is my challenge:
Part I - Create a card with some sort of leaf image. You can stamp one, punch one, emboss one . . . no limitations here, except that the leaf/leaves need to be the focal point! Also, if you do not own a leaf stamp, punch or embossing tool of some sort, go out in your backyard, pick a leaf up off the ground, bring it inside and ink it up!! You can use leaves as stamps and they turn out BEAUTIFULLY!! So, you have no excuse if you don’t own an actual stamp or punch.
Part II – Most of the challenges this week have had an encouraging note about adding pink to your creation in honor of breast cancer awareness if you choose to do so. For this “leafy” challenge, you MUST include pink in your card somewhere . . . cardstock, ink, ribbon . . .
So basically we are down to a leafy card with some pink in it!! Have fun!!
Amelia (Wendybell’sGirl) was my card sample slave again. She made the “Colors of Fall” card. So, if my 14-year-old daughter can do it, so can you!!!
If you would like to join in with this month's Cards for a Cause - you can donate your pink card to the Chemo Angels to continue the Cancer Support theme! Find all the info HERE!

Now why didn't I get up two hours ago when DH did and maybe I could have got this challenge done before work. It sounds cool, I love leaves. Have to go to a wedding this afternoon but hopefully I'll be back tonight. I have my idea already .
