PSL10

Fall is definitely here.  There is a crispness in the air that wasn't around a few weeks ago.  Did you know you could get an early Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks by saying PSL10?  Pretty neat how Starbucks is using the trendy/hip acronym to make it cool.  Anyone can get it now though.  I don't actually like the Pumpkin Spice Latte, which is odd because I love pretty much anything else pumpkin.  Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin ravioli.  I can't think of one thing besides PSL10 I don't like (Sorry Kimberly!).

So this card is inspired by PSL10, by fall and pumpkins, and by leaves and acorns.  It is also inspired by this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge with this fun image and this week's CASology Challenge which is Autumn.  I used my PS Hot Concoctions set and the sentiment is from A Muse.  I used marker, colored pencil, a white pen, orange sparkle pen and glossy accents on the various colored bits.  Looking at it makes me want to snuggle up by the fire and drink some cocoa, yum.




Today's Question of the Day is from CM who wants to know what your favorite cookie recipe is?  Since we are talking fall and pumpkin, my fave pumpkin cookies can be found here.  (Technically not the exact recipe, mine comes from my mama, but they are pretty darn close).  What makes these cookies is the icing on top, the perfect sweet touch for the pumpkin flavor!

OH MY! This is SOOOOOOOOO fabulous! I LOVE that you were inspired by "steam" and used that for the butterflies flying!! LOOOOOOOVE this card-- amazing!

Answer: I don't bake... so I don't really have a fav recipe... and I don't really like sweets (I would rather have a baked potato).... but I will eat Subway's White Macadamia Nut cookies! And I LOOOOOOOOOVE black/white cookies (they are almost like cake... but I don't like cake... but I LOVE these cookies!)! LOL!
