Let's start with a card for the October Card Chain Challenge. If you're new to this, check out Debi's Society of Stampaholics. Basically, it's an international card swap club - send out a card a month and receive one in return from anywhere in the world. We have a choice of colours, sketch, theme or product. I've picked the sketch - gave it a 90º spin and chose a Thanksgiving theme for the card I sent Becca Crugar of Damsel of Distressed. In return, I got an amazing card from Judy in Florida.
I'm using Waltzingmouse Stamps for my card: the image is from Bountiful Basket Additions and the greeting is from Say It Out Loud - Winter Holiday. I used the MISTI to stamp the leaves with Memento Bamboo Leaves added a touch of Memento Potter's Clay at the edges and cut them out with the coordinating dies. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Pyrus 6x6 pad.
I stamped the basket and pumpkins with Memento Rich Cocoa. The I went mad and decided to pile the basket with more pumpkins. So after some masking I ended up with this bountiful basket. I coloured it with my Faber-Castell Polychromos... which is seems to be my preferred medium ... for now :)

Firts up is a tag for Day #4. I was inspired by Daniela Dobson's tag with the funky tree. Mine's not funky at all...but it is a tree! I'm using Chocolate Baroque's Santa Baby stamp set, embellished with blobs of Ruby Red Liquid Pearls.
*****The next tag is for Day #9. I drew inspiration from Tracey's card: snowflakes, sentiment and a single image. I'm using Lawn Fawn's Party Animals, Holiday Party Animals and coordinating dies. The snow flakes, stamped with ColorBox Metallic Silver ink, are from Winter In The Park and part of the sentiment is from On The Mend.

That's all from me today. Sorry for the long post. I seem to have acquired a (bad) habit of cramming in as much as I can into a very small carry-on luggage... and it's spilling into my blog too! Thank you for putting up with me and I hope you have a light and breezy day!
