Hi Everyone!
We are getting some cooler weather and it's beginning to feel like fall. Kate is our hostess this week at the Little Red Wagon and she wants us to create a project using a leaf (or leaves).  I broke out my Lawn Fawn stitched fall leaves dies, (one of my favs).  I made this card with a circle cut out and popped the leaves giving it  3D look.  Head over to see what creations the girlfriends have raked it.

I recently ordered a few stamps from The Cat's Pajamas, (which Brenda happens to be on their design team).  This little sailor bunny is so cute and thought he'd work for the challenge, using the life preservers for the background.  I love how this card came out. I had so much fun coloring this little guy and embossing the sentiment.  Let's do a background check on the girlfriends over at the Little Red Wagon blog.

From the Heart - Heartfelt Sympathy

Hi Everyone!
I want to share with you a card from a special designer, Faith Skrdla. I discovered From the Heart designs just over a year ago. I fell in love with Faith's creations and participated in a couple of her challenges.  The blog posts began to slow down, and it was the end of the summer that she shared with us her battle with brain cancer. Unfortunately,  she lost this battle the end of July. I am sad that she  has passed.  I know that God has a purpose for every thing.  It is not for us to understand why but for us to trust that this is part of his plan. Faith has touched so many lives with her God-given talent. Here's is my card to honor Faith's talent and her life. There has been a Gofundme account set up for her family at...https://www.gofundme.com/faith-skrdla039s-family-support
