autumn type card

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I am still not feeling well so I just kind of moped around again today.

I do have a lot of errands to run but no energy to do them. Still don't know if a cold is coming on or I have some ear infection.
My ear is blocked and I am trying some simple home remedies before I go to visit the doctor.

I checked out some of the challenge blogs and here is what I am entering this card into:

1.  the color throwdown  blog challenged us to use riding hood red, pumpkin pie and old olive on our card. I have all  of these Stampin-Up colors but I don t like how the riding hood red photos. I guess its just a different shade of red-more orange in it.

2.  The stamp simply blog had a challenge to think in 3's. We were to use 3 images on our card. I used 3 autumn leaves on my card.

3.  The paper cupcakes blog had a fall inspiration challenge.

4.  The craft your passion blog had a challenge blog to create a clean and simple card.

5.  The tuesday throwdown blog is challenging us to use our punches. My leaves are punched.

My card has a riding hood red base and the very vanilla layer I used the cuttlebug embossing folder "autumn type". I really like this folder with all the words that describe this season.

I guess this was a cuttlebug type day since I used the "pumpkin spice" die to cut and emboss the pumpkin. I added 3 leaves and some riding hood red ribbon and that completed my card.

That's it for today my blogger friends. Have a great week-end!!
