By the Cute and Girly Challenge

Did you know? Today is our first ever challenge at By the Cute and Girly! By the Cute and Girly is a monthly challenge blog based on a variety of crafts, crochet, jewelry, knitting, painting, photography….basically anything handmade! So if you are into other crafts in addition to card making, this blog is right for you! A new challenge will be set on the first of each month.

We already have a whole line up of fabulous sponsors and this month, we have three!! Yup, THREE! For the month of October, our theme is AUTUMN GLORY! You can create anything that represents Autumn/Fall, however you interpret it!

One again, I made a Halloween card with the new release from La La Land Crafts! I just love all those Halloween stamps! They are spooky yet so cute! For my card, I used Clover on Pumpkins.

As you can see, my other project is a scarf! I chose the colors closest to the card and I thought I did a pretty darn good job at matching! Hehe

I don’t know if I ever mentioned on my blog before but I love to crochet! I just haven’t had much time to really sit down and make anything since I started card making. This scarf was a breeze to made! Oh, I just remember, I need to make a couple of vests for one of my friend’s daughter…as well as my babies. They have outgrown the ones I made last year. I tell you, kids grow so fast!

Okay, here is a freebie for everyone! I have been playing with fonts again. :) I haven't tested this file yet so please let me know if you have any problems.

Hope everyone likes my card and scarf! Please hop over to By the Cute & Girly for lots more inspiration from the rest of the team….and I mean by LOTS MORE! There are twelve of us in the team!
