Hope your week started out on the right foot! :)

If you read my last post, I mentioned that all the autumn and Halloween projects I'm seeing lately are making me want to create something for fall too!

So...I whipped up this card. This summer my very talented friend Amy Heller has been challenging her blog readers to use their scraps and I've been playing along since I have a ton! The papers on this card are actually scraps of scraps! I dug them out for my last scrapbook page and now I'm using them again for this card!

It's also been a while since I practiced with my Copic markers so I colored this adorable Papertrey Ink stamp from the Friendship Jar Fall Fillers stamp set.

I used some of my favorite die cuts and some vintage mother of pearl buttons for accents.

This banner die cut from Papertrey Ink gets a lot of use!

In between each layer, I added a piece of chipboard for texture...love texture!

Along with this card, I also whipped up a batch of Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies.

I made my man happy with these! I always want to experiment with some new sinful dessert, while he just wants some good old fashioned chocolate chip cookies that remind him of childhood! These babies turned out just the way he likes them...a little crunchy on the outside while remaining rich and gooey on the inside! And they're huge too...about 4"!

I can't wait until one of the big computer companies invents a way for us to share goodies on-line! That way you could try one of my cookies! Wouldn't that be awesome? And while they're figuring out how to do that, if they could make them zero calories too....wouldn't that be a slice of heaven?!?!

Thanks for stopping by! :) Kathy
