IB91 Autumn Picnic

Hi peeps!  It's Thursday and that means Inspired By day!  Woohoo!  I have lots of stamps that would fit our challenge today, but in the end I decided on some real oldie-but-goodies!  Here we go:

And here is Laurel's photo inspiration....I am getting hungry just looking at it!  Isn't this tailgate party setup cute, with those retro thermoses and cool picnic basket?  And the FOOD!  I am sure you'll find some inspiration in there too!

First, I needed a sketch, so I went to the Try Stampin On Tuesday blog and this is what I found--perfect!

I pulled out an old Papertrey set called Vintage Picnic and stamped the pumpkins on some Very Vanilla paper and the picnic basket on some new Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  The images were colored and shaded with Blends:

I even added a couple of gold pearl embellishments for the hinges!!  I stamped a Crumb Cake mat with the Flannel background stamp, and the Mossy Meadow card base was stamped with the Linen background stamp...I told you there were some oldie-but-goodie stamps being used!  Finally, I stamped a sentiment from PTI's Vintage Picnic Sentiments on a diecut banner and assembled it all together!

And since Lil' Red Wagon's challenge this week is "fall it", I am submitting this to theirs as well!  Thanks for popping in today!  I hope you'll play along with our "tailgate" challenge this week...can't wait to see what you create!  Be sure to pop over to Inspired By to see the lovely creations the DT made as well!

Eden and Ginger are finally pals!!  They enjoyed some outside time last week:

What? My mom had a cooler just like this - I think Thermos made it! LeAnne I just love your cards - you often give me warm fuzzy memories - and they are always just as cute as a button!

Awww, such a cute picture of Eden & Ginger! Glad they are finally getting along! Reminds me of when we first got Gigi & Bailee. It was the same way! Your card today is beautiful, LeAnne! I love that you used so many older things from your stash. What a great scene you created and that plaid picnic basket is gorgeous! Wonderful job on coloring those pumpkins, too!

I love your basket full of pumpkins! I say basket, but in my mind this little lovely is made of metal. Darling card LeAnne!

I love this card to bits! What a stroke of genius to paper-piece the basket in plaid! I love the beautifully coloured pumpkins and the subtle background too.

I love that the dogs have made friends :)
