New Stuck On U Sketches and Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge!

 Hey everyone, how are all of you!? I've been missing on my blog lately (so sorry) I've been busy with work and doing some projects around the house! We just put in some pantry cupboards in our kitchen (woo hoo more cupboard room) so I've been painting. Then next week when I finish painting these we are moving my crafting area! I will be getting new cupboards (so more painting) and a new work area in our family room, I can't wait!
Well now onto new crafting challenges! First of all Stuck On U Sketches new challenge this week is:
LEAF!
And then The Cricut Circle Blog's Monthy challenge which is: To create a project of any kind using your sign/symbol of "Fall", you must also add texture to your project.
I made a Fun Fall Project to share with you. I love Fall so this was super Fun for me, I just love the colors of Fall and this soft pumpkin is adorning my coffee table so I get to enjoy it everyday, it just brings a big smile to my face and I sure hope you enjoy it also, I enjoy sharing it with you!
I couldn't wait to get out all my goodies to make some of these fun fall Sweater Pumpkins. These are made with re-cycled sweaters. I may try and do a tutorial in the following weeks (but my new craft area will be a big priority, you know how important that is, lol) Well after I finished my soft sculptor pumpkin I had to add some leaves to it so what better way to do that is with your Cricut! I used the Celebrate With Flourish cartridge and made a tag/card to tie onto the pumpkin.  
 Now I have a few extra goodies on here and one of them is a crochet doily that I added some of my homemade shimmer shine in a pretty gold shimmer. It's pretty hard to see but it is very pretty in person. I added a pretty sheer Red bow that I got last year at one of the after Xmas sales. The little birds nest is one I had in some of my stash and the acorns and pine cones are actually some I harvested in my own backyard!
 Here is my actual card and I have to say, I Love It!!! It is cut @ 4" and welded the shadows together using Design Studio, cut all my layers and then I did some embossing, used Devine Swirls, Swiss Dots, Tiny Mosaic, Pumpkin Harvest and a small dotted butterfly folder. I inked everything with some Quick Quotes Mocha Mama chalk Ink popped everything and added some Red and Green Gems (also known as Bling, lol)!    
 Here's a great shot of all the layers and the embossing!
I just Love these little acorns! I added the texture on the acorns with the Pumpkin Harvest folder and I used the pumpkins to add the lines in the the acorns. (You can't even tell it's a pumpkin can you, lol!) Well I sure hope you join us over at Stuck On U Sketches. Your project just needs to be a new project and use a die/cut of a "LEAF", link up with the Linky on the SOUS Blog, and there's always goodies to be won, so the more you join in the various challenges the more chances you have to win. Pretty simple don't you think!? And speaking of winning I'm entering this in the Cricut Circle challenge also so since I'm not super lucky I'm keeping my fingers (and toes, lol) crossed.   
Well hope to see you over at SOUS and if your a Circle member I may see you at the Circle challenge. Have a Great weekend, do you have any special plans, I'm going to be doing more painting  and when I'm done I'll post a pic when I'm done!
((Hugs)) and Take Care,
Theresa
