And since World Card Making Day is the official start to the holiday card making season, Verve has a 25% off sale on Christmas stamps this weekend only!



 Check out all of these FABULOUS new Verve products that I used on my card today!  Here's the list...Poppy Birthday and Each Day stamp sets, Build a Poppy Die Set, Autumn Elements Ribbon Collection, and Pastel Sequins Mix.




Fall is such a wonderful time of year to get crafty...so much beautiful color and texture to draw inspiration from!  The Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #313 was a great one to show off those beautiful poppies and dies...(yes, I know poppies aren't gold, but these are gorgeous!) and The Ribbon Reel: Shabby Autumn inspiration photo is so lovely, I had to use some of that new rust colored seam binding!


The Echo Park Reflections Fall papers and Espresso Truffle Luxe ink with heat embossing were PERFECT to give my fall inspired card a little extra pop!

I hope you all are making time to get crafty today for World Card Making Day!  This year, I'm fortunate enough to be able to get together with some of blogging buddies in Colorado for a fabulous event!  Stay tuned for updates...hopefully, I'll have some pics to share with you early next week!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
