Fall Pairing Challenge Card!

Happy Wednesday!  Hope your day has been good!  Today I took my kids to stay and play at our church.  My kids love it as it's a multi purpose room filled with lots of room to run and toys and bouncers to jump in!  Such great new toys they have!  I love it because I know or get to know everyone there, it's a great way to get out, and free starbucks coffee!  And it's cool how Ariel loves it when I volunteer there, she always get so excited to help clean up!  The weather is so nice outside that you don't need a jacket so afterwards 2 girl friends and I let our kids run around on the lawn while we sat and chatted!  The afternoon ended nicely with naps by everyone!  It was nice to relax and have a quiet house!  We just finished supper here I made Chicken Cacciatore and it was pretty good, super easy if your interested in the recipe you can get it here.

Today I have another challenge card to share!  Charlene and I challenged each other to make a fall card!  Here is mine:

I needed to make my brother in law a birthday card and just wasn't feeling inspired!  Than I saw this die cut already stamped from Scrapfest!  One of the lovely ladies gave me an extra die cut all stamped!  I had completely forgotten! Of course I was excited as I don't have that die, nor the stamp set.  Although I did win the stamp set last week from the lovely Lin!!!  Once I found this I was inspired!  I stamped the happy birthday on it.  I did one of my favorite techniques for it with my new quickuts embossing folder.  I had seen this folder used by Ayana on her blog and wanted it for this technique and was so pleased that she told me what it was!  I was so happy when I found the folder at Archiver's when I went to Scrapfest!  I embossed the kraft than stamped the friends def on top with my fiskars stamp press!  Added some buttons and voila!  

Please make sure to check out Charlene's card here too! 

I hope your having a great week and I will be back tomorrow with another challenge card!
