Stamp Off Build A Bike Color Challenge

Welcome blog hoppers.  This week, Buffy, Susan
and I are doing a wonderful challenge, 
thanks to Buffy.

This is a Tic Tac Toe color challenge.  I selected
the horizontal row in the middle; Pumpkin Pie,
Shaded Spruce and Daffodil Delight.

I hate to start on a negative note, but it has been a frustrating 
week.  We've had steady rain for a week now 
(ok, rain is better than snow, I will agree), and I
had a nasty bout of the stomach flu Monday night.  I think
that I got the flu from Buffy's granddaughter Amelia, even if
there is no evidence that germs can hop from blog to blog.

I needed something to pick me up, so immediately
grabbed my Build a Bike Framelits on page 216. 
I knew that I wanted to use the splotches from Beautiful
Blizzard on page 39 of the Holiday Mini, behind
the bike.  I added Shaded Spruce Wheels from the
Chase your Dreams Framelits (p 216) and star hubs
on the bike from the Starlight Thinlits on page 220.
Lastly, the sentiment comes from Varied Vases
on page 45.

Hopefully I haven't depressed readers with this post!
Please keep on hopping over to check out what
Susan and Buffy have done with this challenge!

Flourish Thinlits

This is a sympathy card that I sent to my aunt in Utah.
My uncle went out into his back yard, sat down on his
glider and passed away.   He obviously was looking at the
different nut trees that he had raised; especially pecans.
It was a good life and personally, that is how I'd like to go.
I realize that this is not a Halloween card, but my uncle 
and his family have
been on my mind, so here you are.

Trick or Tweet Elephant

As the year speeds by, we are almost to Halloween.
There were some cute Halloween offerings in the Holiday
catalog, but Trick or Tweet on page 50 was one of
my favorites.  Lots of great images to color with your
Stampin' Blends, aqua painter or blender pen.
I paired my Blends with some Vanilla card stock.
The bat images was created with the Spooky Bats Punch
on page 51.
