how tweet of you

Got my new Paper Smooches stamps, "My Peeps"....hooray!  If you get a chance, go check out this set...too cute!  Here's my first card using this set...
And now to this week's challenges.  A Halloween card using my "Boris" stamp, which I adore to bits, and goes well with the flasks from the "Halloweenie" set from Paper Smooches.
Here's this weeks Play Date Cafe's challenge
I love how the heat embossed ginkgo leaves turned out, unfortunately it does not show as well in this photo...

And, I can't believe it, I've actually made a Christmas card in October...this has never happened before - usually, I'm scrabbling around in December, trying to make tons of last minute cards for friends.  I would like to think, this will continue...I doubt it :-)  Here's this week's CASE Study card by Nikki Estes, along with my interpretation.  Again, the photo doesn't show it well, but I tired to imitate the textile on her card by using  I my PTI Linen impression plate and rouging up the edges.

Live well,
