One For Three!

Afternoon all! You can tell I'm short on crafting time when I'm trying to see how many challenges I can cram into one card - I think three is enough for this one. So, we have: Cute Card Thursday No 78 Hidden Treasure which is the one that started today's headaches, combined with
A Spoonful Of Sugar Challenge No 69 Fall Into Autumn and High Hopes Challenge No 45 Favourite Stamp

For the Hidden Treasure part of the challenge, I remembered seeing in an issue of Making Cards the instructions for a slider card. "Oh it can't be that hard" thought I "I'll do that". Ha! Anyway, won't bore you with the details but dearest Toad did ask me twice "Are you still making that same card?". For the Fall Into Autumn part of the challenge, I used some wonderfully rich papers from My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow and some autumn leaf stamps by Komodo, also autumn is kitten season which lead me beautifully into High Hopes Favourite Stamp of Andreas Kitties .....

And this is it with the slider open -

High Hopes stamp Andreas Kitties
Komodo stamps Autumn Leaves
Hero Arts sentiment stamps (lost the packet so don't know which set)
My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow papers
Bazzil cardstock
ColorBox Fluid Chalk
Crystal Elements red and gold gems

I'm off for a lay down now before I tackle anything else! Thanks for dropping by on this wonderfully sunny autumn Sunday.

Squirrel xx
