Hope everyone is relaxing and enjoying this beautiful fall Sunday.  At least here in Delaware it is still beautiful and fall...I know many of you in the Midwest are already feeling the effects of winter.

Today I have two things to share with you.

The first is a card is for challenge PARTY1 for the 5th Anniversary party over at Sketches4All.  It uses the sketch below and calls for a fussy cut item.

Here is the item I fussy cut -

And here is the card I created:
My next is a layout.  I used the November 1st sketch from Stuck!Sketches.  They are having a Guest Designer Call and I am going to throw my hat into the race...
Here's the sketch:
Here is my layout:
For a challenge I won last year I received the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet collection.  I was so excited to find these old photos from a childhood trip to see Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gelsey Kirkland dance The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center.  I included hidden journaling about the day under the large nutcracker...
I use pop dots under the gingerbread boys to give things a bit more dimension.
Also post to turtle soup Bev's challenge
I am also entering this into the November 2014 Mini Crop challenge #6 over at Turtle Soup.  It calls for using old photos on a holiday layout.
I hope you have enjoyed this bit of holiday cheer!
Thanks for stopping by...all comments gratefully appreciated.
