Friends With Flair Blog Hop -- Hurray!

For those of you following my story, I'm going to start with a picture.  Last week, I didn't have a chance to comment on many of your great works of art because I traveled 4 hours with some friends to participate in a walk to raise $ for a Golden Retriever Rescue organization.  I brought Sophie, the dog my husband and I recently integrated into our family.  She goes to work with me at the nursing home everyday.  Here's my friends and our dogs. Sophie and I are in the middle, Janelle and Annie Girl are on the left, Sheri and Too on the right.

Aren't those dogs beautiful?  I love this picture.
I've been trying to catch up on some of the World Cardmaking Day challenges on the Unity site since I missed out last weekend.  However, my work hours have been long this week, so I haven't gotten very far.  I have three made, but only had enough daylight to get good pictures of 2 of them.  They are both quite similar.
Here goes:
The first card is for the color challenge.  We are to use the colors pumpkin, brown, cream, and olive.  Here's the card I made:
I used the Unity Jillibean Soup Country Pumpkin Chowder stamp set, Spellbinders dies, American Crafts Autumn cardstock, a Tim Holtz die strip for the foliage.  I colored the leaves and acorns with Tim Holtz distress inks and Liquid Pearls.
The second card is for the Fall challenge.  Here it is:
I used the same papers, leaves, Spellbinders, and technique.  The stamp set is a Stamp of the Week -- Happy Fall.
Enjoy your weekend!  I'm hoping to getting crafty, at least part of the time.
