Autumn Memory & Squigglefly Challenge #73

Hello everyone! I have a couple of cards to share with you today.


I used the handsome boy from Chi Chi Memories' lovely Autumn Memory Collection for my first card. This digital stamp set has some really cute fall images that are perfect for this time of the year.


I paired him with Cosmo Cricket's Nutmeg collection. The sentiment is from this Hero Arts set.


My second card is for Squigglefly's Challenge #73. The challenge is to make a detachable bookmark card. Here is a tutorial on how to make it if you are interested.


I was too lazy to dig out my perforator (I know it's lurking around somewhere in the house), so I decided to make a pocket for the bookmark/tag instead.


The adorable angle image is Trumpeting Angel by Revi Devi Paat. I paired her with the cute paper from Zoe Pearn's Little Joys digital kit. The sentiments are from Papertrey Ink. The seam binding is dyed with fired brick.

That's all for today. Hope you have a wonderful day! =)
