Our Theme in October is Change of Life Circumstances. Retiring, New Baby, New Home, New Job, Leaving A Job, Wedding!  Things happen in life that can be pretty major.  It's always wonderful to let our friends and family know that we are thinking of them during changes in their life. 
This was such a fun card to make.  I love how the Champagne Foil Paper and the Powder Pink blend together for that awesome shine!  

I used the Floral Phrases Stamp Set & coordinating Detailed Floral Thinlilts.  The Powder Pink is such a pretty color for Wedding Congratulations!  

The Fresh Floral Design Series Paper gives the background a hint of lovely and makes you think you can almost smell the flowers :)
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.  Here are all of the products I used for this card:

Eclectic Coffee Cafe' For #ttc019

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #015.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Felicita.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged to create! 
I chose the three squares across the top of the board using green, coffee and geometric shapes.  The Coffee Cafe' stamp set was the perfect blend for this fun project.  I added the die cut geometric shape from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits using the copper foil paper.
The background is embossed with a coffee bean embossing folder and then I sponged some crumb cake ink over the beans for added dimension.  I also used a piece of the Quilted Christmas Design Series Paper in Garden Green.  The little coffee cups are die cut from the Coffee Break Design Series Paper using the Coffee Cup Framelits.  They match perfectly together.
I love how this fun, thank you card turned out and feel blessed to be able to share it with you today.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Here are the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project...

Welcome to the Pals October 2017 Blog Hop featuring some very “Wicked Folds”. Thank you so much for joining us today. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Stampin’ Pretty Pals treat you with their wickedly folded projects. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along. 
I used the Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set for this Wicked Fold card!  I love how the coordinating framelits work with the stamp set.  And that copper foil paper, really pop!
It opens from the left hand side and then again from the inside right hand side.  It really makes for a unique type of project, that is super easy to create.
And here is the inside sentiment.  I love the sentiments in this stamp set.  They work perfectly for those people you are super thankful for that you have in your life.  Want to make your own wicked fold card like this?  Click HERE for the PDF Tutorial.

Love & Sympathy for #GDP108

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP108.  This week we are CASEing a fabulous project by the AH-MAY-ZINGLY talented and all round good guy Brian King.  Here is the project this week that you can CASE.
 
Remember that when you CASE a project you can take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colors, the layout, the flowers, whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own.  To play along, head over to the Global Design Project.  
I decided to case the sentiment of sympathy for my card today.  I used the retired stamp set called Love & Sympathy, this is one of my favorite retired stamp sets.  It's one of the few that I have kept throughout the years and is also my go to sympathy card maker.  It's never good to need a sympathy card, but it is always nice to send and receive.
Today is the LAST DAY to take advantage of the World Card Making Day sale items! SHOP NOW!
