Create With Connie and Mary! CCMC217, Imagine Autumn

Hi friends! Today is a big announcement day for me. As you all know, I'm a huge fan of Create With Connie and Mary and serve on several design teams with Mary Brown. From now until the end of December, I've been asked to serve on their challenge team. Is that so cool or what?! Be sure to check out the website for FREE projects and downloads as part of the preview for the 2012 Holiday Edition. You can sign up right here for an amazing 5 weeks of inspiration and projects! This is a tremendous value of less than $1 per project with templates and full instructions that you can download via PDF, all for $29.95. Don't forget to grab the special holiday blog badge to wear on your blog as we do have a "blog patrol" and you never know if your blog will be seen and a free subscription given away!

Every Thursday we will have a new challenge for you and this week, it's a sketch challenge.

We would love to have you join us for this challenge and become a member of Create With Connie and Mary. I've personally signed up for every single one of their series for as long as I can remember. It's a lot of fun and the inspiration is mind blowing with what these ladies and the design team comes up with. You will love it as much as I do.

Here is the card that I made for you today and I hope that you enjoy it. It's very rustic masculine with a lot of texture and dimension using products from the new Holiday Catalog and the Idea Book & Catalog. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me and may the Lord richly bless your day!
