Fall Festival

Hi, everyone!

Well, it's the 15th again  & time for another challenge  from Dies R Us.  Today's challenge theme is "Fall Festival" and you can use anything fall related.  The only requirement is that you must use at least one die in your card creation.  Simple, isn't it?  And by joining in the challenge you may find yourself the proud winner of a gift certificate to Dies R Us so you can shop their fabulous array of dies, stamps & embossing folders!  This challenge will run for 2 weeks, so that gives you plenty of time to play along! And plenty of time to shop for any extra dies you may want to use!

Here is my card for today's challenge!

I got carried away on this one!  I ended up using 7 dies on it.  And I have to say, my favorite die was the tree!  I ADORE these dies! By changing the "leaves" from green to rusts you can go from summer to fall.  and do them in white & you have winter snow!  Awesome trees aren't they?  There are actually 2 different tree bases and one tree "topper" which is the foliage.  I had to pick up the second tree base just the other day. I was going to go with just one, but when I saw the amazing trees I could create, I decided I had to have the other one too!  They are now my favorite "go-to" trees!

The dies I used are here:
Dee's Distinctively Tree Base 1
Dee's Distinctively tree Toppers
Marianne Design Ivy, Birdhouse & bird LR0206
 Taylored Expressions Picket Fence
Memory Box Puffy Clouds (or Memory Box Marshmallow Clouds)
Impression Obsession Cat Die Set
Marianne Design Wooden Bench LR0259

Head on over to Dies R Us to shop after you hit the challenge!  Their prices are fantastic and their shipping is about the lowest I've ever seen!  You know how much I LOVE my dies!  One of the most amazing things about Dies R Us is their huge selection.  I used to order from multiple companies, paying multiple shipping charges (which sometimes ended up being the cost of another die!) just to get all the dies I loved. Now I can shop at ONE store, with free shipping at $35 or more and just $3.95 below that amount!  The money I'm saving is allowing me to have even more dies!  What are you waiting for!  GO SHOPPING!!

Have fun!


  1. That is so fun and super duper pretty, Sherri! I love the paper you used for the tree tops. The color varation makes it look like real fall foliage. Also love the polka dot background and the pumpkins and, well, just all of it! I have actually gone to Dies R Us just because of you, and there was so much I couldn't decide. I need more time when I visit so I can take it all in! But, you're right about the bargain, for sure!

  2. this is Fabulous Sherri, you have used a lot of die cuts, but you have created a fabulous scene, love the cat..Amazing card..
