Today I had a little inspiration from Make It Monday over at Papertrey Ink. The challenge was to make a dimensional wreath. In her video Melissa said something about coloring the leaves with pinks and purples. This of course made me think of the pink ribbon and I wondered if I could fashion a pink ribbon out of leaves? I think it turned out pretty good. I used my new leaf die/stamp from "Nuts for You" and the sentiment from "Faith & Hope" sets. I think this could be my last ribbon card of the month but you never know.

The Silhouette blog has a weekly challenge and this is the first time I decided to participate. It was an easy challenge and that's why I decided to try it today. It was to make a tag. I made this fall tag with 3 free images I got from them ( Tag, Falling back into school, Treat bag) and a font I bought (LD demaure). I inked it up, sprayed it and had to add some stickles too. It will work perfect for a little gift I'm going to give a friend.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love my silhouette machine. I made this card for a friend who lost 45 pounds dieting and for exercise swimming. I'm so proud of her I wanted to make a special card and was looking for some inspiration and found it with my silhouette. I just thought these suits were so cute hanging on the line I had to use them. I also had to add my latest obsession, sequins!

Well since this is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I just got my new stamp from Amuse I am going to post a card I lifted. I actually lifted it from Linda over at www.Luckydogstamper.com
Her card is very cute and I could not resist a lift. She also has a lot of other amazing cards using the same stamp set so go check it out. And remember that yearly mammograms save lives - it did mine.

This card is a lift from a card I saw in an old Cards magazine. Of course they used a butterfly! I just love washi tape and the polaroid's are fun too. Any time I can use my silhouette it makes me happy. Although, when I make a card without stamping anything I feel like I'm cheating. But I do think this turned out cute.

Also since today is the first day of October all you hear about is breast cancer awareness month. Maybe now that I have experienced it myself I feel like I can't look anywhere without a pink ribbon staring me in the face. I am just not a pink gal but anyway Amuse Studio is giving away a free breast cancer stamp (3$ for shipping) They also have a matching die that you know I will be purchasing. If you haven't seen Amuse I have a friend who is a rep. and you can check out her blog and all her cute cards at www.totogal62.blogspot.com
