24 Hour Blueprints ~ October!

 Hi friends!

Happy Inktober!

This is truly one of my favorite times of the year ~

the beauty of fall, the crisp change to the air,

 the colors, tastes and smells!

AND today is my granddaughter's 3rd birthday!

YAY! <3

And oh - there's a new segment to the 24 Hour Blueprint challenge, too!

You can read how it all started here on the first post  ~

the challenge is the hostess creates sketches for cards,

sends it to us 7 am the day before and we have 24 hours to make them!

Jeanette is our hostess for this round and 

these are her 3 amazing sketches:

And now here are my 3 cards ~ but before I show them to you,

I have to apologize to our hostess, Jeanette!

I didn't read the instructions clearly and didn't see that the theme was

seasonal - meaning all 3 cards were to be a different season!

So, we'll just pretend my cards are different seasonal coffees ...

I've got some chesnut, spiced vanilla chai and pumpkin spice lattes!


For all 3 of my cards, I've used Pretty Pink Posh "giving thanks" stamp:

Here's card #1:

Card #2:

and card #3:

This will be the last of this series for 2021

and we may/not resume in 2022 but it was a fun challenge to try!

I think anything that inspires you to create and make some cards

is a wonderful thing and I'm thankful to my friend Shiela 

for introducing me to this fun concept!

Be sure to see what Jeanette and Barb have created with the sketches

and here's a final look at my 3 cards:

Thanks, Jeanette, for a fun round!

Have a beautiful day everyone ~

it's party time around here!

Thanks for stopping by!
