It's the 15th of the month, which means it's double fun day!  There's a new Cardabilities Sketch, #85, for you to try, too!  Karan's sketches are AMAZING and I'm honored to be able to share them with you!  You'll definitely want to stop by Cardabilities and see the gorgeous creations that the team has whipped up, too!

    The CAS-ology Cue Card: Pumpkin challenge is up and running today, too!  I like to think my cards are clean, but maybe not so simple!  One of these days, maybe I won't be so afraid of white space:)


    There are some fun Paper Sweeties products on my card today...
    Paper Sweeties Stand Add-On 3, Sweeties Wagon, and Paradise Aqua Mist Tea-Dyed Seam Binding.  Love all of the shades of blue!


    Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
