It's Pumpkin Season | Inspired by Challenge - Beauty Fall + National Coffee Week | Giveaway


If you've been following me for any amount of time, you know that I love my coffee!  Well, Tuesday was National Coffee Day and there is a hop over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.  There are 31 Super Sponsors that are hopping with us so a total of 32 stops with prizes!  You don't want to miss out.

I'm playing along with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and their National Coffee Week but I'm doing it on my blog too!  For each of my National Coffee Week posts, leave a comment for a chance to win!  I'll be drawing two names from across all posts and comments, they will win a $20 Gift Card to the Super Sponsor that I feature in that post.  Commenting to close on Thursday, October 8th at 11:59 pm with winners being announced here on my blog Friday, October 9th. 

Although I had lofty goals with the number of projects I wanted to make for the entire week, I'm cautiously optimistic that things will work out.  Today's post I'm featuring Catherine Pooler Designs.  This is the inspiration for my card:

Inspired By...Beauty Fall

There's an optional sketch too:

My friends at Catherine Pooler Designs sent me a set from their past Sept Club Sursee.  It will be available for purchase in late October.

I was definitely inspired by the pumpkins in the inspiration photo.  

I had so much fun stamping things up and picking my color palette:
Over Coffee

The polka dot pattern is from the Catherine Pooler Fall Pick-N-Mix 6x6 paper.  The grey outline is inspired by the hoops in the photo inspiration.

Don't forget to check out the Catherine Pooler SALE.  Here are just some of the items that are listed:

I can't wait to see how my other teamies were inspired, please check out the Inspired by Challenge Blog!
