New Challenge Begins at Anything But a Card - Autumn Magic/Spring Wonder

It's a new challenge at Anything But a Card with the theme being that of Autumn Magic/Spring Wonder!!!! WELL, if you know me, you know this is my favorite time of the year and I guess I got over zealous and wait until you see what all I have created!!!!

For my first project, I have a little wall hanging using Nancy Halversen Such An Angel pattern booklet with a few adjustments to create my "Fall Splendar" Angel which believe it or not - hangs on the wall with a heart hook which holds a ceramic leaf button no less at a jaunty angel. Also look at the wonderful leaf buttons I used from my stash including the one glass leaf as part of her halo!

My next project is a Halloween Count-Down Calendar for Lily and Adam. Brace yourselves as I have actually staged my projects as I had started to get out my Halloween and fall decorations!!!

  • Create with TLC Days to Halloween Count Down Vintage was printed and cut to fit into a frame which was purchased at the Dollar Tree 
  • Cricut vinyl was used for the little spiders which were cut using Cricut Happy Hauntings Cartridge and numbers using the Alphabet from my Cricut Expressions 2
  • now, check out the back as I had used a piece of Recollections translucent card stock which was glued onto the top of the back as storage for the numbers not currently in use 

and finally . . . . 

here's a votive candle holder for not only for Halloween but also Thanksgiving which was made using the translucent cardstock and Cricut Vinyl and Home for the Holidays Fall and Winter Cricut Cartridge which were to be used for card fronts but thinking outside the liter box I thought these would make a great votive cup holder where each measure 4 x 3 inches and the translucent cardstock cut at 4.25, scored at 3.25 inches where I added taps to attach them all together - wait, it gets better . . . ready to see what they look like lit up??? 

what makes this even better - it folds flat for storage!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by today and can't wait to see your projects for Anything But a Card Autumn Magic/Spring Wonder Challenge!!!!

Much love, hugs, and friendship
