Lawnscaping #18 and Practical Scrappers Challenge Me Tuesday!

Well, happy weekend blogland!  I hope this post finds you all doing well!  We are having a fabulous fall weekend here!  Tonight we are going to a house concert in Charm, Ohio to see one of my husband's favorite folk singers!  It should be SO much fun!  =)  We are also going to visit the Renaissance Faire in Pittsburgh one more time tomorrow as it is the closing day!

Sorry I've been somewhat MIA lately with my crafting!  Unfortunately, with school starting back up I've been really busy and our weekends have been SUPER busy!  However, I still have found SOME crafty time, and here's one of the cards that I made recently!  Considering that it's now officially fall, I think you guys will LOVE it!

I was SO excited to finally get Lawn Fawn's Happy Haunting set up and running!  I colored this house awhile ago, and was saving it for a rainy day when I had an idea for it!  When I saw the current Lawnscaping Challenge, I knew exactly what I was going to do! Orange/yellow and gray is such a great color combo, and I love how my distressed background plus the stamped text came out looking nice and distressed but not too busy! 

Do you like those ghosts?  They are made of PTI vellum cardstock!  I just LOVE LOVE vellum cardstock!  It's so fabulous!  I also love how you can see right through them to see the text background!  =)  Here's the link if you'd like to play along over at Lawnscaping, too!

Along with the Lawnscaping Challenge, I'm also submitting this card for this week's "Challenge me Tuesday" over at Practical Scrappers!  Have you checked out their website yet?  There's is SO much fabulous inspiration over there!  Their feature this Tuesday is "fussy cutting."  This card took a LOT of fussy cutting, especially the house and the ghosts!  =) All of the supplies for this card are listed below the post with the fabulous new Inlinkz tool that allows me to manage my supply links!

Is everyone enjoying the fall season?  I'm just LOVING this weather and can't wait for more fall goodness!  In the next week, we are going to go to at least one fall festival!  =)  I really get inspired for awesomeness this time of year!

Ok everyone, I'll be back tomorrow or Monday with some more fabulous goodness!  Have a lovely weekend until then!  =)
