Fussy and Fancy has a new challenge that you won't want to miss.

Hello and Happy Friday!
It's time for another challenge at
This fortnight our challenge is being
 hosted by Elin
who has chosen the challenge

Punches and Dies 
that I colored with my copic markers.
With the gorgeous Fall weather upon us, I have chosen
to work with Oranges, rusts, gold, brown and green.
The design paper is from my scrap bin.
As you can see I added some fun rustic texture with
the brown burlap and woven green ribbon.
I used my Sizzix round scalloped dies to frame my pumpkin.
The fence is done with a Martha Stewart punch
The maple leaves were punched with my old Stampin Up punch
The flowers were punched with EK punches and Sizzix dies and were
topped with "Coffee Pearl" liquid pearls
For a final subtle touch, I added some straw from the farm! 
 He he he!

I hope that all of you have fun weekend plans with
some paper crafting
snuck in there somewhere! 
Here in the North East we are spending our weekends,
 apple picking, going on Hay Rides and
decorating for Fall with pumpkins, hay bales
and pretty Mum flowers the come in gold, rusty orange or burgundy colors.

Please stop by our Fussy and Fancy challenge blog to
see lots of fabulous inspiration from our very talented design team.
Then join in on the FUN!

Warmest Hugs, Sheryl

For my project, I chose to create using ...

Spice Cupcake Cutie
Isn't she adorable?  I had so much fun creating this card
all around her fun "Spice" name! 
I made, "Spice Cupcake Cutie" with spicy colors and then
I added lots of soft peach to the card.
I colored her with copics and paper pieced parts of her 
dress with scrap dp. from my stash. 
 I absolutely adore her dress!  It's so much fun to work with! 
You will absolutely love having this stamp! 
  This is my first time using
