A Challenge to Spark My Creativity

So, I just blew the dust off my blog. It's been WAY TOO LONG since I posted!! I hope I remember how to do this LOL!! Here's why I've been away for awhile.
I've been focused on getting my butt in shape and eating better. Then the summer came and I was outdoors as much as possible! I started working with a personal trainer a few months ago and he's been helping me get stronger! Our summer in New England is too short so I wanted to embrace as much of it as possible. Now that the days are a bit shorter it's time to return to my studio and get crafting! 
I have been creating cards and mixed media projects for the cutest local shop called Reverie and Merchant Maker located in Foxboro, Ma. If you are local, please stop by. They have adorable children's clothes, jewelry, soaps, handmade signs, and lots of other items created by local artisans. I now have some Fall items in the store if you'd like to visit. 
Recently a friend and I got together to get crafty and we decided to participate in a bi-monthly challenge over on the Lawn Fawnatics blog. The current challenge is to "Create a Scene". Lawn Fawn makes lots of great scene building die sets along with stamp sets that are perfect for putting together happy little vignettes on cards and crafts! I decided to make a scene with one of Lawn Fawn's newest die sets "Shadow Box Card" die. This set creates a super cute 3D card that folds and fits perfectly into an A2 envelope. Then the recipient has a nice surprise when they open up the card and see all the dimension! I used some Lawn Fawn Halloween stamps and dies to help create my scene. Here's my card: 
Here's a side view of the shadowbox card including a peek at the fun new Cute Cobweb die which includes an "adorable" spider.
Another view looking into the shadowbox to see all the dimension.
This was fun to create and so easy with the Shadow Box Card die. I will definitely use this die over and over for seasonal cards. 
Please stop by the Lawn Fawnatics blog to see all the creative cuteness from this challenge and I hope to be back on my blog soon before the dust settles again!! 
Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day.
