Work in Progess Part 3

Hi, all
My sweetie decided to take our daughter down to his mom's house for day. He must have knew i wanted a scrappy day. I'm home alone with our son which he is napping in his swing. I was able to cross couple things off my list:
1. Recipe Swap-done and ready to be mail tomorrow
2. Clean-up still going on--i keep doing things to complete the projects.
3. Two Jitterbug Challenges completed:
First one is Wise Guy:
A sketch was optional in this challenge. So i created my own sketch. I use the cuttlebug owl to emboss and i flip the paper backward that the owl is on left. I love the look it gaves. I use the green halloween paper from the previous card project as the base of card. A Circle and square was require to be on this card so the circle became the moon made by the mini monogram cricut and mist with Java and walnut ink. The sentiment was a scrappy cat stamp using Stampin up more mustard ink. I use square brad for the square. I love how this has turn out.
Up the tree:
I turn the sketch sideway that it flip up. I use a golden yellow for my card base then I add Autumn saying (DMCW ?) mat on top of the mat I made as I did with moon. then I use Autum Leaves stamp (oval tag) to illustrate a tree branch coming in. then the bird was cut out from animal kingdom cricut. I use three layer to make it stand out. The corner was made with Martha Steward corner punch--one of my fav tools. I really like how this turn out.
I will updated more. I'm trying not to create more projects until i finish all the other projects i have going.
I also jog some ideas down for christmas gifts that I will need to get started. ugh. Time is flying by. thanks for reading!

Is this a new look to your blog or have I just been very unobservant? Whichever, it is beautiful. Love your cards, especially the one with the bird!
