I decided to highlight the Waffle Flower Bear Hugs stamp in my design - I thought it would be perfect for a Thanksgiving card. I started by creating a custom leaf frame for the design - I used a leaf from an older Winnie & Walter set - and stamped and masked and stamped and masked and stamped and.... you get the picture. I coloured the leaves with Copics and fussy cut the centre of the frame.
I stamped the Bear Hugs image onto a separate card panel and Copic coloured it. I then foam mounted the leaf frame on top. The greeting is also from Waffle Flower - I used the negative letters from Year Round Word Dies "Happy" and "Thanksgiving" and adhered them to a Copic coloured Cardstock strip - I love the effect this created - a little bit like a Dymo label with the raised letters.
My card fits the following categories in the challenge: leaves, critters, using an iconic Fall image 3 times (red maple leaf).

We have a great TIME OUT challenge for you this fortnight - we are challenging you to be brave.
My card is very simple this week - I used an older Clearly Besotted set and stamped the bat repeatedly in the background with Versamark before heat embossing with some black sparkle embossing powder. The greeting was heat embossed in lime green on a small strip and foam mounted.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Our challenge this fortnight at TIME OUT is all about being inspired by the following words:
Our sponsor for the challenge is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps who are generously offering the challenge winner a $25 gift voucher :)
You might notice from the challenge blog that Nonni (Nonni's Handmade Cards) and I used the same stamp set for our cards - that is because we created these cards together over Zoom. We used the same stamp set but we used different colouring techniques and designs for our cards. It was a lot of fun and I really appreciate the creative inspiration from our crafty session :) It also works well for the "friend" part of the inspiring words! The stamp set we used is an older one from Concord & 9th that we both had,
Our fabulous guest designer for this challenge is Jen from JENerally Speaking - her CAS designs are always so inspiring that we are thrilled to have her join us :)
