Cards for a Cause Part 1

I recently joined the WishRak group on SCS. This weekend they are holding a Labor Day card challenge. Every hour a new challenge is given and you have to complete a card with that theme. The best part is the cards we are making are going to be sent to our troops in various hospitals.

The first two cards are for the Fall/Autumntheme challenge. I love fall, it's my favorite time of year. For the first card I ran it through the cuttlebug using the pumpkin harvest embossing folder.

I ran this card through the cuttlebug using the textile embossing folder. The image is from Joann's dollar bin. The scallop swirly die cut was cut using the cricut Storybook Cartridge.

This one is for the Let It Snow Let it Snow challenge. The challenge was to use a snow theme with the colors blue and white. I'm actually pleased with this one, I may make these for my actual christmas cards this year, not sure yet though. Hard to believe it's time to start thinking of christmas cards already. Wow!

Miss you/Love you Themed challenge. I love the color combo pink and brown. The image is from SU Pun Fun set.

Thanks for looking there are about a dozen challenges going on today that I need to start on. I'll be back later with more cards.

I LOVE that pumpkin card. I like the others too, don't mean to imply that I don't, LOL, but that pumpkin one really stands out. Fall is my favorite time of year, too!

I love that pumpkin card (and embossing folder.)

Is it okay if I pinch the sentiment "Love you a latte"
I'd like to use it for a layout title if that is okay?
