The weather is getting cooler and I'm pretty sure most of the butterflies have flown south.  The Design Team at My Time To Craft isn't ready to let all of them go, just yet!  The Challenge is...Butterflies!
This card was made with Authentique Papers and  a retired butterfly from Close To My Heart.  I always like to give my butterflies a 3D effect by gluing it by its body.  
Why don't you give it a try?  Be sure to stop by My Time To Craft for a little more inspiration.  We can't wait to see what you create!

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

It was a beautiful day in the valley.  Thankfully, the weather is starting to cool!  We spent some time at the Farmer's Market and I did some baking.  I found this recipe on Pinterest - not only is it easy, it's delicious too!  Take a look:
I found the recipe here.

Pumpkin crunch cake

yield: 16 servings


1 box yellow cake mix
1 can (16 oz.) pumpkin
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup melted butter
whipped topping


Preheat oven to 350F.
Grease bottom of 9X13 pan.
Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and salt in bowl then pour it into your pan.
Sprinkle your dry yellow cake mix evenly over pumpkin mixture.
Sprinkle chopped pecans and walnuts over the cake mix.
Drizzle melted butter evenly over everything.
Bake your pumpkin crunch cake for 55 minutes or until top is turning golden brown. Cool completely, cut and serve with whipped topping. Refrigerate leftovers.
Recipe slightly adapted from Candle Pro.

You really need to try this one - you won't be disappointed.   
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Sorry, I Forgot...

Your Birthday!  Have you ever done that?  Hopefully not, but sometimes, it does happen.  Here is a  little card I made  -  just in case!
The sentiment is from Card Word Puzzle (C1494) and the image is from Look Who's... (D1502). Both are from Close To My Heart and are available by clicking the SHOP button at the top of my blog.

Shabby Chic...

...or Vintage!  That's our challenge this week.  Since I tend to be more of a "Clean and Simple" card maker - or, so I've been told, this was a nice change for me.
When I hear "Shabby Chic" I think of layers, lace trim, flowers, and buttons.  So, that is what I used.  I also added some chipboard and a pearl.  Hope you like it!

Be sure to visit us at My Time To Craft to see what the rest of the Design Team created.  We hope you'll join us!  Besides, it's World Card Making Day - you don't want to miss out on that!
