LSC191 - "Leaf" It To Me, Baby!
LSC191 – “Leaf” It To Me, Baby!!

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!!!

Here are some samples:

Great one, Wendy. I like that you post several samples! Not sure about the pink in the leaf, but I'll give it a go!

Nice one Wendy!!

Ladylee 10-23-2008 08:17 PM

I don't know if this is fair, but since I didn't know that the challenge was going to be leaves, and I just got these made and uploaded them this afternoon, with regret that there was no challenge for them, I'm going to consider them my leaf contributions!

Woops! never mind! I just realized the pink part of it, so I'll withdraw them. I have more stamping to do!

lazylizard 10-23-2008 08:30 PM

Sorry this photo is fuzzy. I reshot this picture about ten times and none of them looked good. So here it is fuzzy and all:

Cook22 10-23-2008 10:53 PM

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 :D.
