The Challenge 76 Basket of Wishes

Hi everyone! Happy Labor Day to those in the States! I had a quiet Sunday and did a little stamping and watercoloring with SU's new Basket of Wishes and the sketch from Lesley's The Challenge:

This card features a side fold, only because I already had a piece of Crumb Cake folded this way and I was too lazy to cut another one!  I stamped my image in Stazon ink on Shimmery White cardstock and used inks and an aquapainter to color it in:

I just love fall images, don't you?  And these are very easy to line up as they are photopolymer!  I used a pretty piece of Moroccan DSP for my horizontal piece and stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze!  Easy peasy!  I stamped the pumpkins on the back of the Crumb Cake envelope too, just for a little extra pizzazz!  Thanks for popping in today!

We were finally able to have a little get-together for Cassidy and the cousins and neighbor children.  After slip-n-sliding, swimming in the kiddie pool, riding bikes and cavorting on the swings, someone got the great idea of chasing butterflies with a net, which then turned into chasing each other!  I love their imaginations!

Needless to say, they ALL slept very well that night!  Enjoy your day!
