This is for today's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE - Autum Leaves and for today's TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE 019 - CASEing Neva. Yep, that's right, I am CASEing myself this week. Hey I love a challenge and there is not many I will not do. TeeHee. OK so I love trying to make unique shaped cards and this SUNSHINE SCALLOPS Circle Card was soo much fun I decided to try a pumpkin shaped card when I got my new Nestie Pumpkin dies. I envisioned not taking my folded CS all the way to the top would allow for a fold at the top and it did. YEAH! I used the largest for the base and the next one for the front which was also embossed then I used my birthday present to myself that I bought last week on shopping trip with my darling hubby. I bought an air compressor for my Copic Airbrushing system as I am terrified of the cans. I know stupid right, but a fear of explosion is real to me. So I am not so afraid of my compressor, go figure. Anyway I used some Y11 in the center with the die still in place, then some Y26 around the edges. I punhced some leaves from a fiskars punch in kiwi kiss and placed them around the sentiment stamped in dusty durango. I love how this turned out and hope you do too. Come on play along with the THT challenge. Ashley and all the DT would love to see what you come up with. Just make sure to include THT019 in your keword.

Super cool! Love this.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
