a sign of the season

Good morning my crafty friends!!! Hope ya'll had a great weekend. I sure did. Well part of it anyways. On Saturday we attended our church picnic and then that evening we went and watched two of the grandsons play football. Yesterday I worked. But still a good weekend.
We have a great challenge for you this week at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented leader Susan is our hostess this week. She has challenged us to make any project using a Cricut cut of a maple leaf. I know there is a great one on the Art Philosophy cartridge, but since I don't have that one, I went a hunting and found one on the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge. It can be found on page 52. I cut them at 1.5 inches. The swirls are from the Cricut Alphabet cartridge. I cut those at 1.75 inches. I can't seem to be able to find my cartridge, so I don't have a page number for you. I designed my card on my Gypsy Girl. I used some Star Dust Stickles on the leaves. The sentiments are from the 'Fall Fun' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. The bg paper is from my stash.
I hope you have plans to join us for our challenge this week. If you are, head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the rules for our challenges in the sidebar. And while you are there, check out the creations my DT Sisters made for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head on to you crafty space and create something using a Cricut cartridge cut of a Maple Leaf. You have until Sunday, Oct. 13th to link your project.
Hope ya'll like my Maple Leaf card!!!! :)

I really love this card Sharon! Those leaves are amazing and the swirls really make them look as though they are twirling down to the ground. And of course the inside is just as beautiful as the outside. Hugs!

What a pretty card! I love all the pretty leaves and the swirls. It sure does remind me of fall times and the leaves blowing around.

I love the feel of fall I get from your card! I would never have thought of Sesame Street for the leaves-just goes to show what versatility most of the cartridges have!
