So..I made four Nutcrackers with New England Ivy and four different jackets.
Pattern #7 New England Ivy, Goldrush, and Sangria

Pattern #20  New England Ivy, Goldrush, and Peacock

Pattern #6  New England Ivy, Goldrush, and Smoothie

Pattern #22 New England Ivy, Peacock and Sage

Make It Sparkle

With Glitter Paper
I was having a hard time deciding what to do with
 the gold glitter circles that were left over from my 
Holiday Cheer Ornaments. Then as I was reviewing
 the challenges at Heart 2 Heart I see the challenge 
for Sparkle. So.... I gathered my circles and
 made some glittery sparkle gift tags. 
Thank you Heart 2 Heart.

Fall is in the Air 
This is the last week to get the October Stamp of the Month "Autumn Air."
It's a great stamp set for cards and scrapbook pages. Using  the Multi Square Window die cut
makes it easy to make a simple background for any card. Remember you don't have
to use all the squares. You can cut random sections for more open areas. I cut the big section at the top and inserted a Layered Leaves thin cutd for a background for the word "fall." I cut another smaller section for the words "in the air." Then added leaves randomly to complete the card.
Be sure to share your Fall creation with us at Heart 2 Heart.

I used the Tic Tac Toe color board from Color My Heart
 below for my colors: Paprika, Toffee, and Saffron. Added just a touch of Sage for the green.

Now it's your turn to create with the Tic Tac Toe Color board and share with us at Color My Heart.
